Well, not me, the person. I’m staying put, but I am moving this blog.
I have used Yahoo to host several web sites over the years. In the past, they did a good job at a reasonable price. However, those days are over.
In recent years, with buy-out after buy-out, their services have suffered. Their service is slow for one thing, but for a personal blog that didn’t matter so much.
Recently, they have run into some real troubles. My blog uses the WordPress engine. Changes at Yahoo now make it impossible to update the WordPress engine or any of its fine plug-ins.
Moreover, Yahoo has, intentionally or otherwise, painted themselves into a corner that prevents web host customers from downloading their own content. We all can debate prices or speed or offerings, however these two difficulties are completely unacceptable.
As such, be aware there will be some changes coming to this blog. There may be a little downtime, though I will do what I can to make the change as quickly as possible. It is also possible some links or images may run into trouble. I feel confident I can keep the content in tact, but back-links and images might be a jumble for a while.
Now, back to the moving process…
