I’ve been spending a bit of time using the popular Genesis WordPress framework (produced by Studiopress) building a couple of sites on it lately, one somewhat more complex than the other. Genesis makes the basic deployment of new sites really, really easy but the learning curve to get used to how to manage things can prove a bit challenging.
For quite some time now, my byline on twitter has outed me as a Movable Type enthusiast, and quite frankly, I would still call myself that. It’s a great, solid platform and I’ve used it happily since I first hosted my own blog back in 2005. So it may be surprising to some that when the time came to consolidate that self hosted blog with the original hosted blog and update my theme that I made a decision to make the switch to WordPress.
