I had a couple of questions from a regular reader about the blogging engine I use. For some reason, my reply to him bounced. So I’ll answer here. Others may be interested too.
I use WordPress – currently, 4.0.1 – with the Twenty Eleven theme. I really like the editing functions and the themes. I think WordPress looks great on a desktop monitor or on a smart phone, and it works better for me than other blog engines I’ve tried.
I use Akismet to block spam… and Captcha to separate the real people from the robots.
I use Jetpack for various things, including collecting stats on number of views, most popular posts, and so on. I don’t share this information with anyone. It simply helps me figure out what works and what doesn’t for my readers.
I was asked about the “Log in” button in the “Housekeeping” menu on the home page. That’s simply the way I log into WordPress to do things like write new posts, manage comments, and so on. You don’t need to worry about that. It’s not the log in you’re looking for.
Now back to the layout…
