It’s time to make a move to further blogging independence and control! I’ve set up a self-hosted WordPress blog and this will be my last post over here. If you go check out the actual blog (rather than in your feeder reader, if you use one), you’ll notice that it looks nearly the same, only not quite, and there’s definitely still some kinks to work out. The truth is that I’ve been planning to do this move at some point soon-ish, but did it now just to save a little money. My custom CSS subscription will run out tomorrow (so if you see this blog after Friday, it’ll probably look pretty wonky!) and it just didn’t seem worth paying for another year just to tide me over until I got the self-hosted blog set-up. Not that it’s not worth it in general – I am a huge fan of WordPress.com and the way they offer only exactly what you want. And I’ve been using WordPress.com for many years, not only for this blog, and have barely ever had even a blip of imperfect service. I’d recommend it to anyone as a blogging service.
But it’s time to move on, and I’ve even got a pretty URL all of my own! It’s not perfect yet; I’ll keep getting it all set up over the next few weeks. There’s some new stuff I want to play with now that I’ll have a little more control, and some obvious spacing and layout issues to fix up. But it’s readable and functioning, for the most part, so I’m ready to go!
So please come join me over at:
Hope to see you there!
