I haven’t posted anything on here since July, so I think it’s fair to say that I need to do something different. I’m not prepared to just stop, delete everything and forget all about it – I’ve got an awful lot of posts here – but I think it’s time to take a sensible decision.
I’m going to move my blog to a free blog host provider and stop paying for hosting myself. In fact, I’ve already exported all my posts onto my wordpress.com blog. This is a real shame, because my hosts – SiteHQ – have been great, but I’m finding myself blogging less and less and I could do without the cost. There’s also considerably less maintenance with the free hosting option – I just pick a Theme, arrange the widgets how I want them and off I go. I’m certainly more tempted to add in all sorts of extra stuff with a self-hosted blog, and I’m not going to have the time to faff about with it over the next couple of years.
I do intend to pick up the blogging a bit, though. I intend to write about my Open University experiences – I have two more modules starting next year – along with anything else that takes my fancy.
The other blog is up already. I shall back this one up, delete it and point my domain to the new blog. Eventually. My timescales are flexible. I don’t get many visitors, but if you’ve read any of my stuff and would like to keep in touch then you should be able to use the old URL in due course.
See you over at Too Posh To Mosh :)
