I have received several comments about my blog, and some questions asking what I use and how to get started as a blogger. I will start out by saying that I use WordPress for everything on this site. It is a great blogging application that makes everything very visual, user friendly, and easy to customize.

The WordPress theme for this site is called Graphene. I then customized it with my own graphics to make it look visually appealing. I used ColourLovers.com to make the background. I made some of the graphics with the Gimp and others came with the theme.

You may wonder why I chose WordPress over some of the other blogging tools out there, like Joomla. Mostly, I chose WordPress because I was familiar with it from a project I did as part of an internship.

It is very easy to insert media such as pictures, videos, and music clips on WordPress, which I like. It is also easy to write a PHP plugin or widget to do something special if I want to. There are also tons of already made plugins and widgets you can download and put on your blog, too, to do specialized things.

WordPress is cool in that you don’t even need your own domain name, you can get a blog/site right through them. I have my own domain name, as you know, www.lisaannekelly.com, so I run a version of the WordPress application on my website. Speaking of which, I need to do an update. Or more accurately, my Webmaster Laz needs to. (Laz is my alter ego. She manages the site so that I don’t mess things up with my account.)

Happy blogging, fellow bloggers!

Oh, and by the way, I didn’t make my Kickstarter goal by $200. I’m considering starting another fundraiser on Indiegogo — they are not all or nothing like Kickstarter is. But thank you to everyone who did pledge for Kickstarter. I’ll be sure to let you all know here when my CD is out so you can order it.
