Changing web hosts and all that complication
I’m in the process of changing web hosts, starting with MrsDoF’s blog. Once she’s comfortable in the new host, I’ll be moving this one as well, to DreamHost. So if you notice that Diane’s site is down, don’t fret. She’ll be back with beautiful creative crochet projects, insights on education, stories of her days and vignettes of church life in a day or two.
But hey, never change only one complicated variable at a time, right? Les Jenkins is also exporting both blogs from Expression Engine to WordPress for me. I suppose in a month of Sundays I could have figured out how to do that export but he is the go-to-guy since he did it for his much larger blog, Stupid Evil Bastard.
In fact, I’m changing two hosts at a time; we initially tried to move Diane’s blog to a host I had on GoDaddy, but it wasn’t a flexible enough plan to handle multiple domains. I called GoDaddy to cancel the host and I must say, their phone service is always great. They are fast and courteous and they get it done, whatever it is. I have nothing bad at all to say about GoDaddy, but their web control panels are made for someone with better eyesight than I have. So the proposal of multiple domain hosting on even one of their upgraded plans gave me eyestrain just thinking about it. Thus the change to DreamHost.
There will be changes to this blog as well. I’ve been restless lately, even thinking about taking a long break to re-group, but I realized that what I really want to do is up my game. How could I quit blogging with an election coming up?
