Welcome to the new, improved JerLance.com! In addition to getting rid of the “felt clever at the time, but ultimately just annoyed me” Google theme, I’ve also ditched my custom CMS in exchange for an off the shelf solution (with some modest customizations).
Why go with an pre-built CMS? Back when I wanted to spend time tooling around with my blog, my custom-built thing was perfect. It was lightweight, easy for ME to use, and anytime I wanted it to do something different, I just wrote the code that made it so.
Now I have more projects than I will ever finish, so messing with my blog when I just want to be able to post things isn’t really achieving my objectives. Hopefully, now, I’ll finish some of my other projects and post more often.
But I wouldn’t hold my breath.
