At the moment blog24 is using a theme designed by Nurudin Jauhari and will slowly adapt it for my needs over the next couple of weeks, so don’t be surprised to see frequent changes during this time. Although the current theme is acceptable I am busy designing a custom theme from scratch, when time permits.
I took the decision to start publishing before developing a custom theme as there could be big changes when WordPress 2.5 is finally released and this could delay the launch further. Also, as with any new website or blog, it takes time for them to be publicised and listed on numerous directories and search engines. At the time of writing I have not even started that process as more content is required, another reason for publishing using a third-party theme.
As time passes I will document the progress of blog24′s development and overall progress and will include techniques used to publicise the site along with summaries of their success or otherwise under the category ‘Blog24 Progress’. Hopefully this will become a useful series for blogger beginners.
