I’ve used Concrete5 as content managing system (cms) for a couple of years, but is now back to using WordPress. Concrete5 had more design-possibilities, but unfortunately it was also far less stable than WordPress. On top of that, WordPress is also a lot faster and responsive than Concrete5.
You may wonder why anyone bother to set up their own site, and framework, in these micro-blog dominated times.. (Facebook, twitter, instagram and so on.) Well.. I don’t have a remarkable and brilliant answer to that question. But maybe the most important motivation for me, is that I enjoy to experiment with cms-tools, frameworks and web-design in general. That’s probably also the reason why I’ve broken my site so many times. And therefore been «forced» to rebuild everything from ground-up, several times. But after all, at the end of the day, I enjoy building the framework, and getting everything to work as intended, a lot more than I enjoy filling the pages with actual content.
To the left, among other stuff, you’ll find links to my profiles on the social networks I’m currently uses. And on the right hand side, you’ll find aggregated news from my favourite sources. Below here, you see a lithography from Sandviken. Which is a part of Bergen, where I grew up, the first 8 years of my life. (Although that was quite a few years later than the subject of this lithography.)
