I doubt that anyone really noticed, but I switched back again to WordPress.
This time the realizations were slightly different. The main reason is that I just don’t have the time to maintain four different looks for the four different sections that I had. Developing the look of one section takes enough time, having to do four is just unmanageable for a hobbyist web developer.
I promised myself that I would be more concentrating on content, and textpattern was taking me clearly away from that direction.
Also, while textpattern’s “tag” system is useful and easy to use, I find that most of the time, the built-in tags don’t do what I want. I end up writing straight PHP code to add the features that I need. If I’m going to do that, then using WordPress just makes more sense, since you can just hack the templates directly with PHP.
