The changes on this site weren't entirely for the sake of change. I've wanted to change to Drupal for a while, but I just didn't want to spend the time. WordPress was working fine and I had no real reason to change. Now I do. I've been building some other sites for family and family businesses using my personal hosting account. These sites have for one reason or another all changed to Drupal in recent months. One of Drupal's advantages is the ability to build multiple sites on the same code base.

After a lot of thought, I've switched this site over to Drupal. I really like WordPress, and I plan to continue designing for it, but for my purposes Drupal will be a better fit. While I could have matched the new site structure to the old one, I decided to restructure. My old site map had become a little convoluted and I took this opportunity to straighten it out.

I'm in the process of making some significant changes to this site, and I seem to have crossed feeds with another site. Hopefully this post will straighten things out. The transition to Drupal from WordPress is underway.

Good social media tools let you get your message to everyone who has internet access, but do you need to reach the whole world? Twitter has millions of users around the World. Do you sell your service around the World?

W3C has a new accessibility section. It does a nice job of unifying their accessibility content into one location. The home page has a great explanation of the three W's of accessibility. Why, What, and How. (Two W's and an H just doesn't have a nice ring to it.)

An interesting tweet came across my desk today. Made me think about why I like some Twitter marketing campaigns, and dislike others.

To say that people are starting to talk about accessibility on the web would be misleading. Some people have been talking about it for quite a while. What should be said is that people are starting to listen to talk about accessibility.  If you're interested in learning about accessibility, here are some people and organization you should try listening to.
