I Went for WordPress Instead

Expression Engine just wasn’t for me. It hurt my brain. I wanted to make it work, it seems a lovely piece of software.

But it was too much for what I do; I realized that my website is a hobby, something I do for fun, enjoyment and relaxation and I spent nearly a full year unable to do anything with my site because I was so flummoxed by EE and that was just dumb. EE was supposed to make things easier – well, easier than updating everything by hand, at least – but it was just bogging things down.

So no EE. I’m using WordPress instead, and I’m liking it a lot. And I don’t feel badly about giving up on EE at all.
