Getting used to WordPress reminds me: Simple says more.


Power and options sometimes means too many choices. I have been blogging for 5 years on Blogger and know it inside and out, and have lead or managed the development of websites for a decade, so why do I find the transition to WordPress extremely confusing?  It just seems like there are too many choices, options and features and such a plethora of third-party applications.

It’s like making the transition to the PC world after using a Mac. Having a bazillion ways to do the same task doesn’t necessarily make you a more powerful communicator.

As my first art teacher, Mr. Nick used to say: “Simple says more.”
