I have been pretty negligent of my blog in the last year or two. WordPress has a lot of bells and whistles, but these became a distraction for me. I spent more time getting my reading and viewing list updated or fixing custom changes to a plugin than working on my blog. Now that I've adopted a blogging platform that sticks strictly to blogging, perhaps I will find myself more inclined to share my experiences with web development. At the very least, even if I fail to blog often, this new design is better suited to show off my porfolio.
