Still slow but coming back
First off, my apologies for not posting more this month. Been a bit of a slog with the web host that I use having a brain fart. Every time that I want to check the blog, it takes more than 30-45 seconds to load (if not longer) and no one wants to wait as if they’re connected via dial-up for something to load. They’ll lose interest and go somewhere else.
Earlier this week I took one of my domains and moved it to a different adult-friendly server with the hopes of moving this blog over to there. Of course, nothing like that is easy either. Between gaps, I was able to back up the blog here and try to move it, but for whatever reason, it wasn’t going. It would transfer, but wouldn’t load on the new server. Even yesterday when this blog finally came back up, I attempted to use the ‘IMPORT/EXPORT’ feature on WP, but the new version of WP wouldn’t accept it, so I finally gave up.
This morning, there’s possibly good news. Traffic on my various websites is up again (it had been down below 1 GB for over a week now) which means that people are able to get to them, and when I attempted to come here, it loaded after about 10 seconds. Still, an eternity when you’re on a 100mbs hi-speed connection, but at least it’s way better than it has been.
In the interim I’ve been reading others’ blogs and commenting on them, getting the occasional follow-back and spending time doing other things around the house, around the grounds and yep still buying toys. Made a few missteps in that regard in the last week, which I’ll be detailing in the next couple of days. There’s something to be said about ‘measure twice, order once’. Fortunately, I didn’t outlay a few hundred dollars for that mistake. Whew.
Anyway, just thought I’d post an update here. Have to work, to pay for the ability to do all this stuff, so I’m outta here for now. Be good everyone. Well, not too good.
