Here we are on Christmas Day, the snow flurry began about an hour ago, just as Sarah and I finished our brunch of scrambled eggs, sausage and cinnamon rolls. A turkey breast is in the oven (we’ll be having mashed potatoes, stuffing and carrot souffle for dinner) and I’m working on getting all the websites back into working order.
A few months ago I decided to make the move from Drupal to WordPress for all my sites after several months of exploration into what WordPress can do. I had to wait until a time when I knew traffic and demand would be low because one of the sites I’m hosting is for Sarah’s youth group. For the most part getting back together wasn’t too difficult because I’d converted most of the content into WordPress during the Summer months, there are probably images missing in posts and as of this moment my menus aren’t exactly what I’d like them to be.
Drupal is a great tool and if you want to host a site that scalable and you have the technical proficiency to support what you want it to do, I’ve been using Drupal for about 5 years and found it to be a very stable product with great support and resources online. WordPress is something non-technical people can interact with easily from a content management perspective, it’s got great features and a lot “under the hood” to play with, and since I am always looking to expand my skill set I needed to make this change. So here I sit on Christmas Day, listening to Cee Lo Green, watching the snow fall while fiddling with WordPress.
