Finally made the move to WordPress
Not sure what’s going on but it may have something to do with my theme. It doesn’t seem to want to refresh a page until I actually add new content if at all. I didn’t discover it until I had done quite a bit of work getting rid of menus and some of the sidebar stuff and added my own. It’s very puzzling but I will figure it out eventually.
I will be using this as a site to not only occasionally post but also to aggregate everything I do around the web. I am using Diso Actionstreams, which is a port of Movabletype’s Actionstreams plugin. I tried several different Action Stream plugins and either they only offer sidebar content, didn’t do exactly what I want, or were just plain crap.
