Sometimes you need a little nudge to take action. Our family website has been stagnant for years, except for the occasional new photos that were automatically updated from our Flickr account. I knew it needed to be updated, but I never got around to it.
This week our hosting provider had an outage that dragged on for days and I finally got fed up and switched providers. Now I’ve got all kinds of new features and tools at my disposal, so I am going to take the leap and move from custom ColdFusion coded pages to WordPress. I figure I’ll start simple and add new content and features over time. You can thank the terrible service of my old hosting provider for the fresh update!
