You may have noticed something different around here. Though I highly doubt it because almost no one ever read this blog. I don't know what I need to do to appease you people. I mean I had at least six posts in the three years I've had this domain :)
Yes I've switched from self hosted wordpress to blogger. Why? I did not have any problems with Wordpress. In fact I really love it. I highly recommend it. I consider it the best blogging platform out there. Continuously maintained with a long list of useful addons it tends to kick bloggers patutty.
In 2006 I purchased a hosting package from 1and1 http://www.1and1.com it included five domains and some hosting with access to ftp and mysql. My plan at the time was to invent the next big internet sensation. I never did. All I ended up with were a couple of Wordpress blogs. Recently I checked out how much the plan was costing. It had escalated to almost four times what I was initially paying. None of this was underhanded by 1and1. They had been sending me invoices the entire time and keeping me informed. I just didn't pay attention.
I realize now that I will never build a great internet phenomenon. All I really want is a couple of blogs. So I threw up a couple of blogger blogs (actually re-opened one I had had since 2003), redirected the domains, and cancelled my 1and1 package.
As you can see I am just using a standard theme at this time. If I feel like it I will update it a little bit. Like usual I had grand plans when I registered this domain years ago. I imagined making some money off it. Perhaps having some adds and affiliate links. Now I'll just be happy if I happen to write a post every once in awhile.
