A New Look
Just a quick note to say that I have converted my blog from WordPress to WriteFreely. I'm doing this for a few reasons:
- I have on-going projects to “de-cloud” much of what I do. The WordPress site was hosted in AWS, which is a fine service but I've been building my own cloud and have begun hosting services myself. It started with my Fediverse Instance, then a few others for personal stuff, and now my blog. It's been a fun project.
- I like the simplicity of WriteFreely. While I'm quite technical and was ok with WordPress, I didn't need all of that and, at least so far, WriteFreely is simple and runs very lean.
- Writefreely federates with the Fediverse very easily. There is a WordPress plugin for it, but I had issues getting it to work. If you want to follow this blog on the Fediverse, follow @firstname.lastname@example.org.
