Blog Opinion

Self-hosting revisited

Back in 2018, I wrote about my reasons for hosting my blog on my own site, rather than having it hosted elsewhere. This domain,, is in fact my second TLD as my first one was poached (but that is a story for another time), and I’ve had it since at least 2008. All of the reasons I listed back then remain true. Complete editorial control, expanding my competency portfolio, and using the site as a learning tool are all just as relevant to me now as they were almost four years ago, and I remain happy to have migrated off of Blogspot back in 2009.
