WordPress is a pain in the ass to skin. More so than any of the other weblog tools that I’ve used. The seperation of content from design in the templates — the default ones — doesn’t feel up to snuff. I find myself mixing the WordPress PHP variables with other various PHP statements and conditionals right in the middle of the HTML, which reminds me more of clumsily pieced together scripts than, you know, top-tier web applications.

All I want is for my html to remain exactly the same as it is now. Why is this so hard to do? (A rhetorical question since comments are dead until the transition is complete. I was tired of getting a hundred comments about ringtones and penis enlargers and poker. PROTIP: ban the entire .info top level domain to vastly improve your spam denialability!)
