Now, I can see almost all my data, add posts to the blog, and I can start styling more. I like HTML Kickstart because it is light, and so far easy to use, but it is lacking some js functions that other front ends have. Also, I have not really honed my sense of design, so I have to work harder with this frontend to make my site look good.
Soon I plan to add some photos by adding S3 functionality to the site, and that should spruce things up a bit. but more on that later. Now, back to work.
