BarryWheeler.ca, a blog about making money online, business and technology has finally launched. With most people taking time to enjoy the Christmas season, it’s been a busy week for myself as I’ve started working on lauching my personal site that is dedicated to many of the things I enjoy – making money online, business and technology news.
While designing this site I had many options to chose from for a backend with the final two being my favourite software applications Joomla and WordPress. I have used Joomla extensively, and it has been a favourite for creating dynamic websites as complex as online magazines and as simply as a small corporate presence. My experience in WordPress was limited but opted to use it primarily to gain a little more knowledge in this dynamic piece of software. Plus, I also felt that it provided me with a little more flexibility in terms of managing email subscribers and RSS feeds. I know there will be those that will argue that Joomla can do those things, but as with many of my online ventures, there has to be something gained personally. I am afterall, a self-professed geek.
I look forward to providing some insight and thoughts throughout the development of this site. I am at times rather opinionated and will provide some honest thoughts on things that I see happening through the online world. I do not profess to be an expert in the areas of making money online, business or technology. I do consider myself knowledgeable in those areas, willing to learn and eager to push the envelope in this new and exciting world.
Check back soon as I continue to populate content.
