My blog is officially moved in! I imported it into the latest edition of WordPress on my Ubuntu LAMP server. I updated it to look its best in its new home. This is the first new post from that local server.
I’m planning on moving this blog to a server that I’ve set up in my home. I want to do this mainly to see whether this is even possible for me, or practical. And also if I have the know-how to do it. Also, I think I might migrate away from the WordPress platform. I’ve been researching alternative CMS’s and platforms and even self-coding. Although the Internet is certainly in deep love with WordPress, it’s not a blogger’s only, or even necessarily best, option.
Blogger and… More?
My needs are fairly simple: occasional blogging, and even less occasional long-form writing. That’s my current menu of interests. However, I wonder if that might grow if I found it possible to be in complete control of my own content, down to the server hosting it. I am following closely the troubles with de-monetization and censorship plaguing the podcasters and YouTubers out there who don’t agree with Google and Youtube’s ever-narrowing definitions of political correctness.
