Back again

A series of events conspired to force me to change my blog. My hosting provider (JumpDomain) went dark. They were also the domain registrar which made it complicated to move my blog to another hosting provider. At around the same time, Blogger changed their publishing model such that publishing to a self-hosted domain using FTP was no longer supported. So I decided to finally make the switch to self-hosted WordPress. After I was finally able to move my domain to a different registrar, I set up a new hosting account with WebFaction, converted my Blogger content to WordPress and here we are. Not perfect yet but getting better.

My old blog is still on Blogger as codingthing.blogspot.com but I plan to remove it as soon as I’m sure that this site is complete.

    Glad to see you’ve freed yourself from the black hole. I dipped my toe in the water with WP recently but am beginning to move further towards the other direction and a full-on host such as squarespace.com. Looking forward to to seeing more musings from another Congdon.
