I often get questions about this blog and how it is created. I have decided to do a number of technical posts that go into the decisions I make in creating new content. For those of you who have no interest in this you can skip this post. I currently use an iPad program called Byword which publishes to a WordPress platform enhanced with a custom theme. In this post I will explain the terminology used above and why I chose the current setup. Website development is the euphemism used to describe a website or blog that can be indexed by Google or other browsers. Compatibility is the key and dictates many other things. While it is possible to create a website “from the ground up“, sometimes using drag-and-drop programs, the results are usually less than optimal. Adding content is difficult, the appearance is often variable, the site may become unstable and hosting may be a problem. Thus I repeat the advice of many other professionals, the author should provide content and rely on reliable consultants to provide the framework for the content.
