I got a sudden fever this morning, so I took advantage of some physical downtime to research potential new homes for this blog. This is a WordPress.com hosted premium account. I first moved here several years ago to escape hackers who kept taking advantage of the fact that my then-webhost wouldn’t the underlying mysql database. And through the magic of DNS services, y’all came with me.
And so, I’ve been here ever since, feeling somewhat limited, but not overly so. Every year, I would research self-hosted websites, but none seemed to have the anti-hacking support that I was looking for.
In the coming months, I’ll either move this site back into a to self-hosted site, or I’ll port the whole thing into another platform altogether. I’d like a place that makes it fun to blog again. I’m not sure if, anymore, that is WordPress.
Since I’ve been poking around my website, I made a discovery–I wrote all kinds of posts that I never posted. What happens is this:
- I get inspired by a great idea, and start writing a post.
- Something distracts me, and I save it as a draft, and set my computer aside.
- I never remember to finish it.
Among these unposted posts are one that I decided to run tomorrow on stick-tuit-iveness, and two posts on an upcoming feature that I’ll announce later. I want to get several posts written before I commit to this.
(I also had a book review from a few years ago that I had pulled into draft status. When I reposted it today, it sent emails to all my subscribers. Sorry about that if you experienced some deja-vu when re-reading.)
And finally, there are two reviews that I started, but never finished. One is mostly finished, so I’ll try to get that posted soon as well.
Oh, and don’t worry about whatever’s making me run this low-grade fever. Obviously, it’s not slowing me down much. 🙂
