Scattered Thoughts —
Yes abandon hope.
And WordPress com may be a path.
For me —
I’m going to explore micro.blog
I got 60,000 words stuck in posts and expect over 100,000 by the time I reach my 100 post goal. By the time I get there I’ll know if micro.blog can act as a path for new folks on my site. If yes. fine. If no, I may have found a new interesting communications channel.
I’m toying with the idea of making a niche raise bed veggie gardening site. I’d want to build a base of many readers and offer items for sale.
When I searched for garden on micro.blog I got a big zero. First glance not much of a straw to draw enthusiasts to my site.
I planning on staying with Cloudways. No because they are the new sliced bread (Best thing since sliced bread). For my low volume site, $10 a month and some money for akismet, donations, and jetpack.
My migration from another host to Cloudways was accomplished with minimum disruption but I’m not planning on doing it again. Definitely not planning…
My understanding with Cloudways is I can add anotther site to my server or buy another box to try to fill up. They advertise, “Your managed cloud hosting platform.” I appreciate their bot that looks at my site and suggests how to make it faster… They also provide security from attack. Disclaimer, I’ve only been with them for three or four months.
I own a license to all StudioPress themes and have been pleased with them. But they have been bought by a another company. Don’t know if the will continue to update…
Almost enough rambling…
Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.
