This site has been in stand-by mode for some time now. It’s taken me a while to figure out just what to do with it. It was definitely time for a revamp and a relaunch, but I just couldn’t get my head around how to approach it.
You see, the site was hacked again. Yes, again. It happened once in 2010 (twice within a couple of months, actually), and then just over a year ago.
I was going to abandon WordPress. I was really seriously considering it. Because WordPress was the software running my site both times it was hacked. I even went so far as to install Joomla on the site and play around with it for a while. It was complicated, and my brain got tired really quickly from trying to learn a new content management system.
Next thing I tried was reading a tutorial on how to create my own blogging system using HTML and PHP. It was fun for a while, but then reality set in, and I realized that if I wanted anything beyond simple blogging, I would have to write the modules myself.
