I know I don’t get a lot of traffic, and I know I don’t post much, but I figured I’d give a notice to the void that I will be leaving the WordPress platform. Why? Well…
1.) Cost of using WordPress itself for what I used it for has went up. I may as well mess around with a VPS for super cheap and run a microblogging platform instead. Shout out to https://1984.hosting/ for decent VPSes.
2.) WordPress has reintroduced advertisements to plans that aren’t $15/month, or pay an additional fee on top of what I am already paying. I can’t really support them playing it both ways.
3.) While wordpress analytics are neat, I really don’t need to see that some dude from Europe viewed my post on Wayland that’s a few years old. To be honest this site feels increasingly like vanity- I just have it, it just exists. I should do more here that is meaningful.
We’ll see where it goes, but I don’t expect to renew my WordPress subscription.
