Learning WordPress

Day 1: Registered wordpress site

Day 2: Created header image in Photoshop, selected theme and created page hierarchy. Learned that I will be unable to migrate page to http://www.sunforged.com as I originally planned without beginning a new Linux based Hosting account.

Day 3: Began to experiment with incorporating ebay widgets that show my current listings, but alas wordpress.org does not allow java based widgets on their servers.

Day 4: I am quite put back by the inability to use java based widgets as I had planned on incorporating ebay design, development and products throughout this site. I have learned that I will be able to use the Flickr Widget in conjunction with rss feeds to display my portfolio of artworks that are at this time viewable at sunforged.com and various online portfolio sites

Day 10: I have put off design and function issues in order to focus on a massive amount of content that I have backlogged. I have found some workarounds relating to using built in rss widgets and text boxes to include content and links that I previously considered impossible to include due to free hosting constraints.

I will be purchasing paid hosting soon and then I can focus on a more visually appealing page, but for now it will be content driven

The page has changed dramatically though and I will be including a new screenshot.
