Blog Bleg

27 Nov

I’ve messed with the blog design temporarily to try out a new look.  After receiving some great unsolicited design advice from a friend who actually works with websites, I’ve  been considering hosting the site myself and getting a new domain, if only for greater design and feature flexibility. Let me know what you think about the new look (which, coincidentally, shares some features with the design mock-up I’ve been looking at).

And some brief questions for those of you who don’t use a free blog-hosting service: is it worth it? What are the hassles like?

    I use a pretty good, pretty cheap one. Decent servers should not go down with much regularity anymore — I’ve had about five minutes of confirmed down-time in years — and you can put any files you want up without a problem. I use my server to store stuff I want people to be able to download. Don’t know if that’d be very useful to you, but I always thought it was cool.

    Technical idiots like me have trouble installing WordPress, but there’s actually a group of geeks who will install WordPress for you for free — which is how I did it. This is cool.
