I’ve always wanted to have my own blog and now I have a reason.
It’s time to build a new web site for the Bridge Community Church. This time, we’ll go with WordPress so lots of people can add content to the site — including the congregation and visitors. I’m a Ruby on Rails guy so naturally I want a framework that others can understand. I took a quick look at Genesys, Thesis and Hybrid (mostly because Justin Tadlock looks like a really smart guy) with the help of these great postings:
- Comparison of WordPress Theme Frameworks
- ArtOfBlog comparison of Genesys and Thesis
- Coding the WordPress Loop
For my blog, I decided to go with Genesys since I liked the Nomadic child theme. Once I take Pastor Greg and Webmaster Jeanne theme shopping, they’ll probably pick a theme on some other framework. Sigh. In the end, I’ll probably write my own child theme. I’m also curious about writing a WordPress plug-in for my day job at Directra.
But, I figure this is a great start. Excelsior.
