Hi all...your site and forum is awesome. I'm already a big fan and lighting up the Digg boards with a few of the suggestions.
Ok so here's the deal I made the switch to from blogger (ugh - functional, but as you know long-term not the solution). I think Ive done a decent job thus far and my blogger site was only just under 2mo. old. It was called Riddled Phantasms and really it ran a bunch of analytics and heavy on social network/media (I worked for JWT/RMG Connect - Digital/Interactive wing of J. Walter Thompson till mid Feb. when they "said I wasn't performing up to Supervisor level stds., b/c I contracted a variant of MS that also has me with 7 burst/compression fractures in my spine and osteoporosis everywhere at 33...nice ).
Anyhow I'm re-grouping and made Riddled Phantasms as a way to keep busy since morphine and percocet haven't been doing much for pain (even fetynal ugh). Anyhow it kind of took off I got a lot of show passes and done reviews when I can. I got not only Riddled Phantasms, but also the private consulting work I can do under the Brass Hat Group name and url that is going to be the business side
As you can see http://brasshatgroup.com is up and running (not open to the search engines yet b/c like I said I need to swap brasshatgroup.com to riddledphantasms.com and then create brasshatgroup.com (got that part covered or have some1 to help).
I guess here what I am asking being a TOTAL noob to WP and this template (which seems by far the most diverse/adjustable) is the following:
* How does it stack up to Montezuma?
* Seeing the heavy use of widgets I use, any ideas on slimming it down and making it prettier (blogger is prettier atm (though I am proud of my new header and my lil ninja icon ((any way to make it bigger than 16x16, lil guy is so dayum small can see his coolenss))
* What are thoughts ideas on the use of the Header Image H2 (I think it's called not sure, the one with the fancy pics of Chris Cornell, Ben Harper, Nico, Brett Dennen, etc...) versus using the H1 and then the other header (Ive read troubles with this, didn't know if they had been resolved or what the deal is/was/is ) and what is the best size that you all think is useful (I'm using 1280x300 for that header)?
* What are the best analytic data trackers to add and can you put them hidden in footer (does this allow that?)
* What is the diff. between "labels" on blogger and "categories" on WP and then "tags"
(so #@@$! confused on that one)?
* Is there a way to change the overall font to one set one or am I going to have to do this post by post? Didn't know if there was a plugin?
* Anything else you all can think of from looking at that you think would help/fix/improve...etc...?
I know this is asking a LOT and I honestly don't expect much, but you can post here or email me at email@example.com.
Thank you all for this Forum!!!
I think it's great, I think the way you help each other is GREAT and I am getting sicker lately (missed some killer shows Dave Matthews with Press/Photo passes and NIN/Jane's Addiction due to illness nice eh)...feel free to grab whatever music you want and if there is anything out there that you might also want (musically, got some model pals, but not sure you can dl them...boys and girls), from Interscope some Universal, and Sacks and Co. and Red Light Management that you don't see I will see what I can do for ya.
