I don't remember when I learned about Drupal Gardens, but it was probably on Twitter. That's where all my news seems to break these days.
But as a web designer who has shifted focus in the last year to Drupal as a CMS to build sites, I was intrigued. This could be a great solution to offer clients who want a blog, or a small business brochure site without having to worry about back-end updates.
Once I got my beta invitation, I jumped at the chance to see how easy it would be to theme. Could I easily create custom themes in Drupal Gardens to offer my clients? Could I get to the point where I could contribute themes specifically for Drupal Gardens, both to the community and as packages to sell, like you find with WordPress?
To find out, I'm jumping in and launching my own personal blog on Drupal Gardens. It's been a while since I've just blogged about stuff, so this is my space. And along the way, I'll be discovering the advantages (and disadvantages?) of Drupal Gardens.
