My name is Graham Tappenden and I am a blogger and IT consultant from Germany.
I have been using WordPress since 2006, but I started writing PHP code in 2004. Long before that I was writing HTML is 1994 to create my first web sites.
Since I spend a lot of time creating small snippets of PHP code to tweak WordPress themes, I decided to put collect this information together into The DIY Blogger – a site for bloggers who like to program their themes themselves.
There is a lot of talk on the web about outsourcing. With the information on this site, working on your theme may be one less thing that you need to outsource. If, after reading anything here you feel that you do not have the technical ability to do something, then you can always outsource it to me!
