Moving Day!

Posted on Tuesday, January 30th, 2024

Dave!Hosting this blog is expensive. And difficult when you pay for it annually in order to save money.

When I was notified that my annual contract renewal was coming up, I decided to look around and see if it was possible to save some cash. I'm really, really trying to save every cent I can so I can afford to finish my home repairs and finish the work I want to do on my yard.

And so tomorrow I'll be moving things over to a new hosting provider. Hopefully it will all go smoothly and I'll see you on the flip-side.

If not, well... I'm not deleting everything off my current host just yet.

UPDATE: Well, that didn't go well.

Could I have persevered and eventually gotten through the move? Sure. But it ended up being far from easy, even after purchasing the tools that I thought would make it a cake walk. Ultimately the time it would have taken wasn't worth the money saved, so I abandoned ship and stuck with my current hosting company (which has been pretty great, all things considered).

Oh well. I had to try.

    There was a point in time when working to maintain or improve my blog was something I’d happily do and I often did. Now? I don’t care enough and I don’t have enough reason to do so. Very few people read my blog so why should I put a lot of work into it? The $10 I pay per month is fine enough for the customer service I receive plus the hosting and security they give me as well as the deal I get on domain renewal. But nothing more.

      I just don’t want to have to put ads on here. It’s not that I have anything against the idea… but I don’t like to have to think about what I write because there’s somebody else sharing my space.
