Blog Playground is a simple idea I had where I help fellow bloggers by offering tips, advice, and technical help based on my years of experience in the field with WordPress.
My real name is Tony, though I’ve used the alias Thor for longer than some of you reading this have been alive 😉 I’m a PHP programmer who works for a local web hosting company in the wonderful state of Maine, US. Every site we make for a customer is done with WordPress, and my job is to create the client specific plugins needed.
I built my first website in 1999 and have been doing it ever since. Back in the early days the sites were PC gaming related. Since then I have built a few others for myself and family, with mine focusing on blogging.
I have Creative Twilight, which is a blog about the tabletop wargame Warhammer 40K. Related, I created a roster program for 40K called Command Center. I have built a site for my wife and her business called ecoLifestyle.
Personal sites and blogs aside, I have literally created hundreds of sites in my years as a programmer. In all those years I have learned a lot, and I have found a passion in blogging. So, that’s what I would like to share with you all here at Blog Playground; hence the fun and playful name 🙂
