New Look

New Look

I took a little break and finalized the new look of Tech Op/Ed.  I’ve switched from Blogger to WordPress.  I liked Blogger, but the New Blogger engine isn’t very friendly to external hosting… so it’s great if I want to run my blog from Blogger’s site, but not from my own domain.  So I started using some of the features from GoDaddy.com, where www.techoped.com is hosted.  GoDaddy carries WordPress – and many many other content management solutions and tools like Joomla – as a one-click install.  In fact, I have to hand it to GoDaddy for having one of the the cheapest, full-featured hosting sites.  I know other hosts are faster, have more space or are tweaked to run certain applications better.  But I am very pleased with the flexibility of GoDaddy, and that is my unbiased, unpaid opinion on the matter. 

And by the way, since I seem to be do some gratis schilling, let me throw in that if you’re paying more than $9 for a domain name (like on NetworkSolutions)… you are getting majorly screwed.  I left NSI a few years ago and I can’t believe I wasted so much on domain names.  Stop the madness.  Move your names to GoDaddy or one of the other reputable, sane-rate registrar.

Anyways, I’m still wrapping up some loose ends with the style sheets and other info, but I like this design and I think I’ll stick with it for a while. 

Hopefully I’ll have a chance to write more often starting in June.  For now I’m busy busy busy, but I’ll try to squeeze out a couple articles before the end of the month.

Thanks for reading.
