OK, so what’s going on at HoodaThunk?
OK, so the combination of being out of town for a few days and a decision about the blogging here have made for very light posting for the past week or so. Time for an explanation.
The part about being out of town is self-explanatory, but there was an additional twist to this one. I was doing some serious electrical work at my Mom’s house which involved me crawling around in the attic for a couple of days and cutting holes in the bedroom ceilings. Given that I also want to put in an attic fan in her house this year and the high degree of confidence that it’ll be me doing the electrical work on that project as well, I made certain additions to my design to make it easy on me the next time i show up. That takes time. And, when you’re crawling from joist to joist in the attic, you’re not banging keys for a blog post.
The other issue is this: I’ve been doing some research into moving this blog to a hosted server. The reason for this is simple: I’ve been wanting to add functionality to this blog for a long time that I’ve been unable to add due to it being hosted at wordpress.com. Please don’t get me wrong – this is a great service and it’s handled my needs for at least 3 years. But there are tools and widgets I’ve wanted to use that I can’t unless I move. So… I’m moving.
I am in the process of setting the new place up. At first, I was working to make the new blog location look as much like this one as I could. I’m still working on some of the basic functions (which I do like and do want) but I’m taking the opportunity to rework the page a bit and see what I can come up with to reflect the new status.
Lastly, I’m going to be playing around a bit with some of the monetizing features to see if I can get this hobby to actually generate some capital. We’ll see how that part goes but I can assure you I’ll not sacrifice the readability here. So again, stay tuned and see what comes.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
