The ponderation of the mo' is all about websites. Particularly, the building and maintaining of. I have been contemplating (re) building a personal site with all the bells and whistles. I have no real motivation for doing so other than wanting to a) have a place online with my own domain (which is already registered against the day I need it) and links to all the various things I muckle about with on teh interwebs, and b) something to play with and keep (my very few and sub-par) coding skills fresh.
The thing is, I don't want to pay for it.
I have had blogs on various free agencies, most notably WordPress and Blogger and they each have their advantages. I have had hosted blogs, although not for many, many years, and they too, had their advantages.
There are three projects I have in mind for the next year or so, all of which may or may not happen. The first is a series of essays that I would like to post in a timely manner, but of a longer length than the usual blog postings and with more controlled navigation needed. The second is a podcast and I'll post more about that later. The third, and least likely to happen in the short term, is a comic I have been working on.
All three are easy enough to post up on their own, but I'm left wondering if having a single repository for all projects, aspirations, mumblings, musings, scribblings, rants, and perverse desires is worth the (possible) hosting fees or limited functionality of a "name" site.
