The word is out that a new version of WordPress will hit the streets in a matter of days. For me, that means struggling with the “don’t fix it if it ain’t broke” principle vs. being an earlier adopter. And no matter how much I consider the frustrations that go along with the latter choice — themes that don’t work with the new version, plugins that haven’t been upgraded, etc. — my brain short circuits, I think “new, shiny, pre-e-e-e-e-ty,” and next thing ya know I’m cursing between bouts of pounding my fists against my forehead.
That means I’ll be able to hold out for at least a few days before I submit and upgrade.
But that’s also probably going to mean some changes on the blog once again. There are some things I like about the current theme, but I find that I miss some of the flexibility of a three-column layout. So, I’m pouring through themes to see what else might work, and trying to decide whether to leave well enough alone and stick with the new theme or go back to previous theme. Then it occured to me to ask my readers what they think.
So take my poll, and tell me what you think. (Pardon the ads.)
