Everyone Seems To Be Moving

I've noticed lately that everyone seems to be moving. Greta, the Hooah Wife has moved to Wordpress, Doug, at Below The Beltway has done it also, along with getting dot com addresses. I'm seriously considering it, and have even got a nearly finished template for the blog should I decide to move.

Any suggestions on hosting services would be appreciated from those who are doing the "dot com" or "dot net" thing with their blog. I'm not looking for much, just cheap, reliable and easy to deal with... You know, like me :)

I do have another move to make in the near future. Since I've gotten the letter I think it's safe to announce that sometime in the next month or so I'll be moving from Virginia and back to Illinois to live with my family.

I'll be leaving the comfortable employment of "Mega-Corp" and going to work for a smaller company. This will also be a career change, as I'll be leaving the full time training world to go become a field service engineer, and part time trainer. While I enjoy educating people, I miss the mental challenge of troubleshooting things that don't work, this gives me a chance to do both, and work on a bunch of stuff I haven't before. (New toys, ahhhhh!)

That's actually the hold up with me moving from Blogger to a dot com address, I'm not sure how much time I'll have to blog when I start the new job. I'm cheap, and don't want to spend a bunch of money to get hosted, and then find out I can't keep up on this thing.

Congrats on the job Bob. I'm sure your family is very happy to finally be getting you back home. I hope you don't give up on blogging. I've learned so much from reading your blog. Before you decide to do that, maybe you could team blog with someone else.

It is about stinking time. Go to http://amomandherblog.com and look at her hosting packages or http://familynethome.com (what I have) with Danny Carlton aka Jack Lewis.

LP, it's not my thought to give it up, but if I can't keep up a 1-2 article a day pace, I don't really want to pay for a "dot com" address.

Greta, couldn't find anything on amomandherblog about hosting, but I have looked at Danny's hosting packages, along with some others. Still in the early decision making stage on that issue.

I use Modwest. It's $9/mo. for starter and $1 for MySQL DB.

Bob, I've told you to host yourself! We've talked about this on a few occassions. But, hey, if you don't want to host yourself, I'll host you for virtually free (you pay for domain name) once I make my move down to the Norfolk area. I could start now, but it might go down for a few days in a few months when I make my move.

I know you won't take me up on this, but what the hell, I thought I'd offer again.
