I’ve made another step in functionality using w.blogger. Using the Custom Tags feature, I’ve been able to program the bulk of the Technorati tag fuctionality shown below in this post. In previous posts, I’ve crafted them all by hand. It is not fully automatic, however it takes the bulk of the work out of each tag that I add to a post including the icon and the text formatting.
I’ve been teaching myself the structure and layout of WordPress so I can program my own site. I’ve got a full install of WordPress on my own server at home with its own ‘net URL for complete testing. As soon as I believe that I’m up to speed enough, I’m going to set up a hosted version of WordPress so I can use all the functionality of the product. WordPress.com is a bit limited in options at the moment, even though the performance is fantastic.
