Switching from Blogger to WordPress

I have been on a bit of a break, during which I have been working behind the scenes getting ready for my imminent retirement from paid work.  One of the things I have wanted to do is get a proper website, so that I could offer a Thermofax screen printing service.  I started off thinking I would learn to build my own – and that is still my intention – I am slowly working my way through learning Dreamweaver.  However, I realised it would take sometime to reach the requisite level of proficiency  so I looked around for another option.

The best bet seemed to be to set up on WordPress, where the line between blog and website is fairly blurry.  Having a WordPress site allows me to still maintain a blog – and even bring over my previous blogs from Blogger – how cool is that?! But it also allows me to set up static pages, which operate more like a website.

I still have plenty of work to do to change the header, background etc to personalise it, and complete my galleries, but at least I am back in the saddle.

It feels good.
