My original intention for this website was to set up a gallery to publish my photos. Then I thought it might be a good idea to integrate a blog with the gallery to make it easier to write descriptions of the photo albums. Then I thought maybe a blog might be a good thing to have in general, it would give me somewhere to write whatever I have on my mind. And even if I don’t have much to say, that doesn’t stop anyone else, so why not me too?
So, quite a while ago now, I set up wordpress and integrated gallery2 but it was a kludge and hard to use so I didn’t do anything with it. Around the same time the gallery project announced gallery3 and development on gallery2 mostly stopped. Unfortunately gallery3 development has been very slow and there is still no WordPress integration on the horizon.
In the meantime WordPress integrated a photo gallery of its own and while it’s nowhere near as feature-rich as the gallery project, it works. And is integrated into WordPress by default. So I’m going to give it a try. We’ll see how it goes.
I’m just learning WordPress so I expect there will be quite a few changes to this site in the near future, especially with the theme, plugins and commenting system but hopefully it will all get sorted out fairly quickly.
