GTI on the move?

Posted by Greg , Monday, September 13, 2010 1:58 PM

Well, friends, we have reached the end of the road...or at least a road.  I had been using Google Sites to host song files, apparently unaware that I had a 100 MB maximum.  I exceeded that threshold with the previous post, and now have no more room to host files unless I start deleting old ones.

Furthermore, I've been advised that Google may not be the best place to host a music blog, since it's been known to shut them down without warning.  I was aware of this when I created Given and Taken in Ink, but I had experience with Wordpress for a previous (non-music) blog and wanted to try something new.  I think, in the back of my mind, I always knew I'd have to switch back at some point in the future.  Now may be that time.

I've also been advised that it's probably safest for me to self-host this blog, which will probably happen as soon as I pick a host.  If you have any suggestions about a good host, please leave a comment about it!  I've heard DreamHost is pretty decent, although it's been frustrating that all hosting sites seem to have very little information available.  I'm sure that has something to do with people's rush to get on the Internet; in our haste, we may neglect to read the fine print.  I don't generally operate that way, and I'm going to take a little time to do some research.

What this means is that GTI will eventually have a new address, although I can't reserve one until I have a host.  Stay tuned for more on that!
