Last week I had some issues with my site.  Since it was going to take a great deal of work to get it restored and configured correctly again, I decided to use this as an opportunity to change hosting services.

I had been on Earthlink.  I had some issues, such as their version of WordPress not being the most current.  Also, no matter what I tried, I could not upgrade to the latest version.

I also had issues with certain Plugins I wanted to use.  Some I could not install, others could not update.  It appeared that though was my site, and I was paying for the files on that site, I did not have access to all the WordPress folders and files.  This was very frustrating.

Today I changed to BlueHost.  I am still in the process of configuring the site, such as adding Plugins, deciding what widgets to use and so on, but it is going great.  For example, there was a Plugin that needed to be updated and I was able to update automatically.  And it actually worked.

Once I have the framework of the site set I am going to put up some of my previous posts, including my reading list page.  Then my plan is to post at minimum once a week.  I have a list of things I want to post about, so it may be more than once a week,  but we will see how it goes.  Though I plan to be much more active on the site, my writing priority is on some scripts and a novel I am working on.
