What is this? (new site)

This is change, but not too much.

My site, steveblock.com, has been around in one form or another for over a decade. For years now it has been running some version of Wordpress but I think I’m finally sick of trying to keep it up to date. Although I’ve managed to avoid any major issues so far, many of my friends have been far less fortunate.

Adding to my distaste for Wordpress is a growing dislike of where web sites are and where they seem to be heading: multiple sidebars, ads everywhere, tiny text, wide paragraphs in a sans-serif font. It’s unreadable!

So I’ve dumped Wordpress, and I’ve built a new, simpler site.

I think it’s time to dump my old posts as well. I’ll keep an archive around somewhere, but they don’t belong here.

This place is now a work-in-progress, but here’s the first version. I hope to keep developing it as time goes on.
