New Socks

There’s something that I don’t do quite often enough. Buy new underwear and socks. There’s nothing quite like putting on a brand new pair of socks, is there? Just the right amount of stretch in the elastic, the right amount of snug in the toe, not yet too thin on the heel… mmmmm, new socks.

And welcome to SethGunderson.com, my pair of new socks. I’m really diggin’ it, for now… the web changes way too fast to fully appreciate what you’ve done. Why I’m already thinking about what the next design will look like. And so it goes.

But this site is new and improved-on from the last version. Here’s how…

Bye-Bye Blogger
I’m not using Blogger anymore for this site. Nope. I’ve graduated to the bigger, better, and still just-as-free, Movable Type (henceforth referred to as MT). It’s a very powerful, and popular, blogging tool. Very customizable (with plugins, see below) and very clean – and oh how I like clean.

Setting up the site was a breeze, since I didn’t really have to install MT… Kevin did that for me… and a whole lot more. In fact, this site wouldn’t be half of what it is without his help. THANKS KEVIN!!! If you ever need some great programming work done, hit up Kevin (you’ll have to email me, and I’ll get you in touch with him), he’s the best I’ve ever worked with… honestly.

So MT is a great program for blogging, but what makes it really great is that it’s open-source… which gives anyone, with know-how, the ability to customize it. And since there are a ton of MT freaks out there, there’s a HUGE plugin directory, just ready to be browsed over. The plugins I’ve chosen to use (and by use, I mean “might” use) on this site are:

More RSS For Your Buck
Now you can subscribe to my site via three different ways:

Categorize This!
Now all of my posts are in categories! Use the drop-down in the right-hand column to see all the posts associated to a certain category. Pretty freakin’ nifty.

And So Much More…
Too much, in fact, to go through it here and now. The site isn’t in it’s finalized state, but it’s in super-beta mode. So if you see any errors, leave a comment or contact me. I’ll get it addressed and fixed as soon as I can. Hope you like it. I do.

I like the new site! And I LOVE the feel of new socks and new underwear, too. In fact, I'm glad others feel the same way about them. I thought I was weird.
