I blame the economy.
The web hosting account for janella.com has come up for renewal. Dotable, where the site is hosted, has been a great web host this past year. Their pricing and support have been great. I have nothing bad to say about their company or service. But money is money.
Granted it only cost “x” amount of dollars a year for the account. But “x”, when factored with “y” and “z”, makes hosting a web site an extra expense I can do without. I must consider alternatives to web hosting.
There are many free platforms to blog out there – WordPress.com, Vox, LiveJournal, MySpace, Facebook, etc. The logical choice would be to go with WordPress.com. I know WordPress well, as my blog ran on WordPress. But I love how Tumblr works. Tumblr is drop dead simple.
Yes, I’ll need to deal with the fears I’ve mentioned in my old blog postings: lack of control of data and loss of data. But I’ll learn to deal with it. I trust in Tumblr. (Now don’t let me down.)
And so it begins anew…here on Tumblr.
