So to be perfectly honest, I have not gotten that far into a new, self-hosted blog. I got a host, and was nearly immediately confused. FTP? php? MySLQ? My God. This was part of the reason I stopped doing a website in the first place.
Then I sort of realized that I was probably making it a lot harder than I thought, as nowadays, they make it much easier to do a wordpress blog, due to quick installs, etc. Unfortunately, by the time I realized that, I’m about to head out of town for a work trip for about the next 6 days. So I’m not really going to get to work on it at all in the near future.
So in the meantime, I will continue posting here, but with an erratic schedule. I’ll post for a few days, then take a few days off, the post, then not. So continue to check in, because I don’t want the site to go completely stagnant.
I also made one semi-big mistake concerning my secondary blog, Captured Heroes. It turns out that the domain name captureheroes.com is already taken. So I had to create a new domain name. I did that pretty easily, but not at the same place I’m hosting (because I wanted all my domain names registered in one place–that was the theory). That’s fine, but as many of you more tech people already knew (but I didn’t), you have to wait 60 days before transfering a domain name. So I guess I’ll be keeping that blog on blogspot for quite a while longer. But I will work on moving it.
In the meantime, if you see this site go down abruptly in about a week or so, you’ll know I’m working on it. 🙂 But until then, enjoy a semi-random series of updates and posts.
