Blog Moved To New Server

I’ve finally found a server management system I’m happy with that manages everything I need it to. It required I install from a fresh server install so I’ve built a new server for this purpose. I have moved everything over to this new server, at this point. Hopefully everything is working by now.

Things To Come

One of the things that makes me less inclined to use my own sites is the effort required to maintain it. I was not a fan of the backend maintenance required for Wordpress nor the difficulty to make Plone do what I wanted due to the lacking community around it.

First Post! Again...

So I’ve gone through various bloggin platforms over the years. I’ve used hosted services like Livejournal and tumblr, and I’ve used my own hosting for Wordpress, Moveable Type, and even gone for some CMS software like Plone.
