“Form follows function – that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.” ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
This picture is of Larry’s 365 site. It looks better than mine – you know why? It’s not just because he’s intelligent and good looking, it’s because he’s using WordPress, and I’m on Typepad. Unless I go get some custom template (and there aren’t half as many for TP), I”m stuck with TP’s templates.
What can we learn from this picture?
- Half the time spent on blogging, for a lot of us, is spent tweaking the look and feel. Yes, we know that content is the most important, but who wants a blog that looks so pre 2000?
- I have a nice 21 inch second monitor at home, set up in portrait mode, for browsing. It is SOOO excellent, everyone should do it. Now, to get a third monitor so I can have two of the portrait ones and one landscape.
- Larry may be a better photographer than me – but hey, he does that as a pro, I’m just a guy with a cell phone.
- WordPress may be better than Typepad. But I have all my blogs at TP, so I ain’t moving soon.
