The truth is that since the day I first installed WordPress and started blogging on dkalo.com I haven’t spent a single minute caring about it’s technical side. It was all about blogging and writing. A couple of days ago, my hosting plan expired and I either had to find a new host or to renew my subscription.
To be totally honest, I wanted to change my host but all the other solutions I found out there where for a year and I can’t commit for such a long period. As a result, I just renewed my current hosting plan. However, I made a clean installation of the brand new -and totally awesome- WordPress 3.0. Since I host all my photos on flickr.com, it was really easy to restore my old posts. I just uploaded the old XML and.. voila!
The theme, as you can see, is completely new. It’s the iBlog from Pagelines. Also, I installed some plugins. First of all, Google XML sitemaps because SEO is really important nowadays. Then, I installed the “Facebook like” button because.. well, every blog must has this button. Some social features are included in the theme by default. Of course, Akismet is here as well to protect me from spam comments. What I also updated is the contact page and the about me page. More information about me and my interests, and definitely more accurate as the old page was outdated.
As it is right now, I like my new blog but I ‘d love to hear some of your feedback and your thoughts about it. Can’t wait!
