Is WordPress taking over the Web?

Originally posted in test environment on October 31, 2014:

As you can probably tell, I’ve been playing around with WordPress.  I’ve resisted embracing this technology, preferring to hand code html and CSS in place of wigitized, template-driven programs, but the time has come where too many of my clients have inquired about this trend that I could no longer delay the inevitable.  If you visit here often, you may see the site change at a rapid pace as I try out new templates—I haven’t found one I’m in love with yet, but then again, I’ve only been at it for a day or two.  My first frustration out of the gate is, however, is exactly what I expected: the templates!  More precisely: the limitations of the templates like image sizing and font choices.  I have discovered that some templates give you more freedom over these items and I hope that is the case with whatever theme I end up settling on.  For now, let the games commence!

Update 11/19/14: I’m now using a purchased theme: Deep Focus.  Even so, I’m still playing around with it tweeking it this way and that to get just what I want.  Normally I would not go live with a site at this stage, but the old site was so broken that this incompleted is better than what was up there before.
