It’s been a few years since I wrote a post for the site. Sadly, the blogging software I was using on the old site was a bit of a barrier to frequent posting. Originally I chose PicoCMS for the site due to it’s lightweight nature and markdown syntax. Unfortunately the “Magazine” theme I chose used too much custom HTML and Javascript to make writing in markdown a reality. Each post ended up being written in HTML so at that point why bother with a CMS.

Earlier this year I took over management of the Winona Amateur Radio Club’s website at The new club site is running WordPress. I have run WordPress off and on both personally and professionally for around 15 years. It’s been a few years though. There have been some pretty major improvements lately, so after my positive experience there, I moved my own site to WordPress as well. I have some new posts in mind for the new site so stay tuned.
