Leveling Up

March 4, 2009 at 6:47 pm (Uncategorized)

Its about time I try my hand at the professional blogging thing, so I’m going to “level up” the site to its own domain.

No, I’m not letting the unsolicited traffic go to my head. Its just that WordPress sucks in terms of customization. They give you a bunch of ugly themes, CSS customization you have to pay for, you can’t have any form of ads or money-making tools on the site, etc. I do however love WordPress for some reason. I checked out WordPress VIP hosting, it sounds like what I would like…BUT :

Because of the nature of this program it is not open to the general public, it is intended for existing high-profile publishers, or startups that we have a good deal of confidence in. You may be a good candidate for VIP hosting if, for example, you get more than 500,000 pageviews a month on your blog. Pricing begins at $500/month per blog with a one-time setup fee of $600, but may be flexible depending on your circumstances or number of blogs

Insane. Blogger.com has more features than WordPress, but I always thought it was ugly. So I think getting my own domain is the only option. If I’m able to I’ll install WordPress on the new site. Hopefully the ads will pay the for hosting itself, which so far isn’t as expensive as I thought. If not I’ll have to start sharing stolen porn and charging “verification fees”.

Be on the lookout for the new site
