Wordpress and Photography

 I've been using WordPress on and off for many, many years and really love the level of customization available. My current favorite theme is Customizr (see link below).

One of the main reasons I like using WordPress and hosting my own site is that I have full control over all of the content. If G+ or Facebook change and my images are no longer available, it doesn't matter. And yes I have local and offsite storage for all of my photographs. Also all of my posts and links point to one site.

I know WordPress isn't for everyone, it does take some work and knowledge. I have done web development, so I am comfortable editing behind the scenes code (HTML and CSS). I have found that more and more I just pick a really good theme and I don't have to do any code development.

If you are interested in using WordPress for your site, check out my site and the Customizr site (links below).

Cheers,
Wade

Doing what you love and my 27 years at Cree/Wolfspeed

Working at the same company for 27 years is seen by some as bad for your career. Sure, I may have been able to make a little more money, but I do feel like I have mastered many of the skills I learned while working for Wolfspeed. And I don't think you truly understand a role until you have been submersed in it for a few years. When I started my career there were around 150 people working at Wolfspeed (then Cree Research). I started as a programmer, working on a shrink wrapped software application that controlled LED message signs. In my role, I worked on other software projects and was even involved in building an eight foot full color LED video screen. Very cool! Over the next twenty odd years, I have held many different roles and created some amazing things at Wolfspeed. I created the company's first public web page and also their first internal web portal. At last count, I have created over thirty five applications that are used for data parsing and analysis (and other needs

What Next?

 It's time. It's time to do something completely different. Starting in November, I will be retired from Cree/Wolfspeed where I have worked for over 27 years. I feel it is time to move on. With that said, I'd like to do something. Something other than software or database development. I'm not really sure what form it will take, but I am open to suggestions. I know that I don't want to sit at a desk all day. I'd like to do something that helps others or the environment. It doesn't have to be related to photography, but could be. If you have any ideas, let me know. Cheers, Wade
