I’m conspiring to inspire on my pages here, so if you like the site design I want to give you the chance to copy it a bit as well.
What, exactly are you seeing here?
Once upon a time (Web 1.0) personal sites were generally a few static, but custom-made, web pages. Content changed infrequently due to the effort needed to make changes.
Along came Web 2.0 with ready-made content management systems — blogs, Facebook, Myspace, etc. However, customization seemed to go the way of the dodo.
What I’ve done here (feel free to examine the source code) is take a WordPress blog for content management and meld it with my own site design. The content section of each page is actually an iframe in which WordPress is embedded. This lets me easily create a custom feel that doesn’t seem quite so blog-like, while letting me easily update pages via a good content management system. The best of both worlds! In order to keep it from looking like a page-inside-a-page, I stripped the header from WordPress so that only the content remains. Eventually I might customize a WordPress theme to avoid the iframe trick, but I really don’t want to become a WordPress expert (I already have another big project going that requires me to become a Drupal guru).
So that’s how it works! Feel free to peruse the source code and use whatever techniques (but not my content, please!) in your own pages.
