Yes, I have relaunched an art blog. I’m running it on WordPress again, but I’m not providing the hosting this time, I’m using Gandi.Net’s simplehosting service, and the SSL certificate I get with a domain purchased from them.
This will probably be slow to grow, it takes a while to back fill all the posts and things from the previous incarnations. I don’t know how much that will happen, other than images. I’ve lost a lot of commentary along the way, especially from the previous WP incarnation, even though there were backups.
Hoping I can keep it going this time! Wish me luck!
