I’ve reconstructed the site as a WordPress blog and so far I’m pleased with the results. I’m building upon an existing theme, Journalist, which I previously used in an earlier install of WordPress, and have mimicked the old site without too many complications. It helps that Journalist is a simple, elegant, bare-bones design. I was able to easily adapt the existing CSS and use the same graphic elements without any problems. As the class continues, I hope to rebuild the theme from scratch, and then build a new original theme.
