If you've stumbled your way here, welcome. While I've had the great opportunity to support, use and play with Drupal Gardens the last few months, the number of sites I've built have primary been used for testing. This, here, is my first "real" site, that will soon replace my current blog at http://alligatorsneeze.com
I'm one of those developers that even when I might have the time, there's almost always more pressing matters, other sites to break or fix, or a multitude of other tasks piled upon my to-do list that working on my own personal site and blog is almost always at the very bottom of the list. Because of this, Drupal Gardens is a perfect choice for me. It allows me to quickly put a site up, use the awesome theme builder to more easily customize the look and feel of my site, and I don't have to worry about updating it or keeping it maintained.
Sounds perfect, right?
We'll see. I very much realize it's still in beta, and that Drupal 7 is still in alpha. I suspect I'll continue to run into issues. But I'm having a lot of fun building out this site. I've got my banner working after a couple snags and will be working more on the way the site looks. Being that I have very little design background or sense, we'll see how that plays out...
