Self written Blog Scripts are so uncool

So It finally happened; I ditched my self written Blog/ CMS in favour of WordPress. There were several reasons for doing so;

  • maintaining an CMS is quite time consuming, which I would rather spend on my other projects
  • my script was lacking behind featurewise; no OpenID support, no Trackbacks
  • if you use WordPress you get even features you have not thought of for free regulary
  • WordPress is easy to write plugins for
  • Everyone uses WordPress 😉

so I just converted my Website into a WordPress theme, wrote a plugin to correctly serve it as xhtml (hope wordpress will get this right on its own soon) and here we are.

The old content will be back over the days.
