The Great Drupal Web blogging project, Part 1

Filed under
Drupal

I may be good at some things, but I'm lousy at making Web sites.

Oh, I know my way around HTML, and I'm decent at Macromedia's Dreamweaver, but just because I know how to paint, doesn't make me Van Gogh.

So it is that when I looked at my sad little Practical Technology Web site, I decided it was time to try something different.

But what?

I decided that my first problem wasn't that I'm a klutz at Web design. No, my biggest problem was that I don't have the time to manually put up a decent-looking Web site.

So, it was that I decided to put up one using a blogging-oriented CMS (content management system). By that, I do not mean using an existing CMS like Blogger or Live Journal. I mean actually setting up my own instance of a CMS on one of my Linux servers.

I know it's not everyone's idea of a fun way to spend the break between Christmas and New Year's, but hey, it works for me.

So, the first thing I needed to do was to decide what I'd use.

Full Story.
