I built a custom website for my family a while ago using ASP.NET. I tried out some cool stuff and even used a bit of Silverlight on it. Since it was also static content updating it sucked. I decided to move it to a WordPress site and give my wife an Editor account on it.
Won’t be as awesome as this website. One big change is that I should be cutting down on personal toned posts here. Posts like my headphones or other things that I think are good for general discussion will stay, but updates about me will show up there.
