So after a year I actually did quite well. My goal was to make at least a post a day and I came in with 657 posts over 2011, which comes out to 1.8 posts a day.
Since I met that goal and surpassed it my goal for this year is to average 2 posts a day. Along with that I want to further document some of my projects I’ve been doing here at home.
Leading off with the above you might wonder why I would title this “Slow Blogging”. Well if you remember a few months ago I started running into problems with the hosting provider. I have since created a small pool of cash and am going to begin the migration of my sites starting today. This will have a couple effects, the biggest is getting the DNS information to change over. So my blog may look static for the next couple days as I migrate it. Along with this will also be some minor hiccups in mail as I move the Exchange hosting as well.
There are a few sites which are going to remain static for a while because the move is going to be quite difficult. I did find a hosting provider who provides Exchange services. Ultimately I think eventually if the sites I maintain grow enough, including a new project, I will migrate to a VPS and find dedicated email hosting at a separate entity, possibly hosting myself if I can get the bandwidth. Right now my goals are to limit my interactions with the hosting side and focus on the web side.
So for at least the next 72 hours expect the site to be silent, probably longer as I figure out how to move everything over. I’ve got to get my email moved as well and the hardest part of that currently is ensuring they use the correct domain for the exchange system.
