Did a complete site redesign including new hosting and a new theme. Working with a blog site hosted on WordPress.com was a pain in the butt and it was costing way more than it should. In order to go from the ”personal” to the next plan up would be something like $150/year up-front and that would be to just get the basic WordPress functionality. You cannot even load plugins in the personal plan!
Anyways, the new hosting is done as a droplet on Digital Ocean which is a great VPS provider that I have been using for years. Everything is much faster and easier to manage using their hosting. They also have a wonderful knowledge-base with walk-throughs on most everything you would want to do.
On the personal side, things have been crazy so hopefully I get back to posting here. Working on my back-end notes and currently reading the Shrimad Bhagavatam and the Narada-Bhakti-Sutra which I am really enjoying. If I can, I will try and post insights gained here soon!
