KSP switches to WordPress…

Wednesday the 21st March was W-Day – WordPress Day – when Keith Sharples Photography (KSP) switched over to the world’s fav blogging and website engine WordPress…

I’m not here to sell WordPress but a quick google search throws up some interesting stuff especially if WordPress isn’t already on your radar:

 “A semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability” – wordpress.org

“WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL”. Further, WordPress “features a plug-in architecture and a template system” – Wikipedia.org/WordPress

Key words for me here are: ‘personal publishing platform’, ‘focus on aesthetics and usability’, ‘blogging tool’, ‘content management tool’, ‘plug-in architecture’ and finally ‘template system’.

In simple terms, I’m looking towards WordPress to enable me to drive my personalised website and blog in a flexible and creative way to best showcase my photography and written works – period.

The switch over is gonna take a little while so please be patient whilst the new website is built up. It’s very definitely the case that this is a ‘work in progress’ and new pages will be coming on-line over time. A high priority will be given to adding including visual content in photo galleries and collections, as well as written content such as articles and Climbing FactFiles etc..

It’s a new dawn for KSP so here’s a here’s a shot to go along with the theme…
