Why the move?
I want more flexibility to customize my blog. I think WordPress is awesome, and my will continue to use it for my new site, but I want to take advantage of features and plugins that are only available on a self-hosted version of the software. Plus, this will be a great chance for me to learn more about web design as I tinker and tweak the features on the new site. Also, by hosting my own WordPress blog, I can also add a podcast or a videocast to the blog. Stay tuned…
The new site also features randomized header graphics, so come back often to collect them all. Or if you are really bored, keep on clicking the "refresh" button on your browser to reload the site for a random graphic each time. Fun!
Also, the final reason is vanity, pure and simple. I like the sound of leesean.net. I want to be a first-name-only web celebrity/brand name.
The new site is still a work in progress, so bear with me while I tweak and tinker the tech and write some new content as well.
