New host today, and I’m testing the interface to see if it connects to Facebook, Twitter, MySocialEgoIsHuge.net (that website is unregistered so you can claim it if you wish) , and so on.
I had been using Blogs-About.com since April 2004. I setup the original Chasingthewind.net webpage as a place to share my faith in Christ and let me learn HTML. Well, while the faith in Christ has grown (though my service to Him has not, alas, due to all the travel the last couple of years, my enthusiasm to learn HTML has diminished. I no longer want to spend time tweaking code.
I’d been happy enough at Blogs-about, even though my WordPress setup has hiccuped once or twice (not their fault!) during an upgrade and I had to ask them for help to fix my blog installation. Well, several weeks ago I upgrade WordPress again, it hiccupped, and I left a trouble ticket.
It went unanaswered. I sent a followup, also unanswered, and then an email bounced.
So I spent some time researching where I want my blog hosted, and I’ve moved over to WordPress.com. I may lose a little flexibility, but the options here do everything I want. And the reliability will be higher since the upgrades are automatic and I won’t munge them up on my own.
Lisa from Blogs-about : thanks for 7 great years of hosting Chasing the Wind. If you ever stumble across this blog entry, say hi.
