A few years later, I added WordPress’ multisite/networked functionality to this domain. I had a private, Pinterest-esque directory called “random,” where I used WP’s PressThis functionality to save inspirational content to a private area on this site. I had thousands of posts there, plus imported content from my tumblr subdomain. In addition to a separate sketch blog, I maintained a photo blog and carried out several years of 365 Daily Photo challenges.

I’m using Twenty-Twenty as my current theme. I still love WordPress. And I still love Web publishing. It’s fun!
