A Wild WordPress Theme Appears

Ive had a very love/hate relationship with WordPress for a long time. I appreciate it as a blog platform (its probably the best one out there), but I dont care for the way people have decided its everything else as well. When one is a jack of all trades, its difficult to be a master of any.

But there are a world full of people out there who know WordPress inside and out, and they take that knowledge and print money with it. There are all kinds of WordPress plugins nowadays that do all sorts of things (useful or otherwise), and theres people making money behind said plugins. Themes are the same way.

I know PHP. Ive know it for a long time. So why am I not printing money?

I dont know. So Im going to learn WordPress development. This incredibly spartan theme represents the first step in that. Sure, its basic, but its mine. I call it Strapped, because its based on Bootstrap, and took almost nothing but an afternoon to spin up. Its not fancy, and I doubt anyone would want to use it, but I do. And Ill make it better over time as I get more comfortable with it.
