Is this thing on?
I’m cautiously optimistic that switching to a new host will have solved the problems I talked about over here. Then again, after 8 hours of setting things up and adjusting and seeing my site crash and about a half-dozen chat sessions with customer service, cautious optimism might be … well, too optimistic. We’ll see how that goes.
(Geeky aside: I was told by my new hosting company that I was “over consuming system resources” — I have a five-page website and this blog. We’re not talking about a complex and process-heavy web presence that places any sort of undue pressure on a shared server. This is pretty simple stuff, about as simple as it gets. I can’t imagine that simple WordPress admin functions constitute “over consuming system resources,” so I’ll keep an eye on things for the immediate future. I really hope it doesn’t go south; switching to a new host is a bigger pain in the ass than losing a wallet.)
In any event, I’m not going back to blogging daily. The immediate plan: Post something occasionally, when it feels like there’s something worth saying. We’ll see how that goes, too.
