To show my support to block the SOPA and PIPA bills along with Google, Wikipedia and others I have blacked out my profile picture today.

As many of you have read on this blog over the past year or so, in an attempt to reduce my financial overhead as well adopting a generally minimalist lifestyle, I opted to relinquish the monthly costs associated with having my own web server. One of the aspects I’d not considered replicating, however was online backup.
Probably the biggest reason this didn’t occur to me was the fact that my Slicehost server never had more than a few moments of down time in the 4 plus years I used them. And I’m not overly concerned with WordPress.com or its services either, however, being prudent with ones online content is definitely a smart move.
In addition to checking out those reviews for online backup services, I want to see if WordPress.com might offer similar. On the Upgrades page I see that I can purchase additional storage space for very reasonable pricing, however, I’m not immediately finding any sort of backup pricing.
Whether I opt to keep online backup in-house with WP, if you will, or decide that another company might better serve my needs, I know it is something I don’t want to not do. This is a sort of insurance that from past experiences, I know I’d rather pay and never have to use (but have it there) than not pay and need to replace lost data at some point.
Will keep all updated on the progress of this task.
Plummets, I say! And that’s fine. The nearly 300 or so RSS subscribers were probably wondering if I was ever going to get around to writing on some sort of a regular basis. Well, I’m going to be but it will be less and less about technology, social media, and other online related stuff.
Instead, I’ll be focusing BoldyGoing.com on food. The real stuff, according to Michael Pollan. I cannot wait to jump in with both feet on sharing my thoughts, feelings and maybe a video now and then showing the crazy things I plan on doing in the kitchen!
So, unsubscribe if you must. Un-follow me on Twitter. Do what you have to do. But those that stick around? You’re in for some yummy fun times.
And I’ve been playing with this tag line. Drop me a comment and let me know what you think,
“What are you cooking for?”
(Some of you will know what that’s a derivative of. If you think you know, leave a comment with your guess. If you’re right I’ll send you a cookbook from my overflowing collection! Cheers!)
