Well having my own website didn’t work out to well. I had great plans but lacked some skill to make it happen. After talking to Dad, we decided I would go back to Blogger. My domain forwards here rather than having it being self hosted. There is a less chance of malware and being hacked. Plus Blogger is easier to use.
So dad helped me set it up, find a template I like, a mobile version that works (simpler the better), and helped me get the blogroll set up. Finally he helped me import all of my old posts into the blog. That is an ongoing process.
