While I’ve blogged for several years using WordPress (my blog is here), and I’ve built other web sites, e.g.,  this web site is a WordPress learning experience for me.  I’ve found several very helpful sites, in particular, Syed Balkhi’s site was one that I found helpful early on.  Special credit should be given to Tyler Moore. His web site is built using his free template Tesseract, and he has a great (annotated) tutorial video on its construction. I’m one of many of Tyler’s Tesseract user/students.
