WordPress Templates

Hey all you power-blogger/design-gifted/tech-savy folks:

I’m planning some serious changes to this blog over the next couple of weeks. I want to combine ZackRiesland.com and TheRieslands.com into one blog, and move it to a private host, where I’ll have a lot more control over how it looks and what I can display.

I know there are a bazillion wordpress templates that offer different features and such, and it can be kind of overwhelming trying to choose one.

Steph is strongly against a white background because she says it hurts her eyes. Do you agree?

Do you think 2-column or 3-column is easier on the eyes?

Do you know of any good themes or plugins I should know about?

Give me some tips!

Announcing www.ccraleighyouth.com

I’ve spent the past several early mornings working on a new website/blog for the youth at our church body.

(this would be why my own blog hasn’t seen much action)

This is my first real experiment with a privately-hosted wordpress blog and podcasting and whole nine yards, so I’d love to have your feedback.

Got any tips on cool plugins?

Got any ideas to make this better?

Got feedback on our teaching (keep in mind we’re teaching teenagers)?

Please go visit and let me know!

Am I the only one who gets this like 3 out of 4 times I try to do something on twitter?

What Voddie Has To Say About Obama

I discovered Voddie Baucham‘s blog today. I like how it’s a home-made ‘made on a mac’ iWeb special. I appreciate it when guys who are in ‘full-time’ ministry don’t waste ministry money to look slick.

He has an interesting post about Barack Obama. The title of the post says it all: “Barack Obama: A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing“.

The first sentence is the thesis behind the title:

“Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion candidate ever to run for President.”

You can read the whole thing here.

Voddie has always been right on in my experience. He’s a very wise man who doesn’t point fingers lightly.

What do you think?

For Stephen and Mike D.
