Ok hopefully last blog move around for a while.

Last time a few months ago I lost over a year of blogging because I let my wrong server hosting package auto-expire. This go around it was a JSON issue for the life of me I couldn’t fix, though I didn’t lose my prior data just the layout which I had done little to improve since the forced redo last time.

I am not big on fancy, I blogged for over a decade using straight HTML tags so blah on fancy. Auto scheduling post is good enough for me usually. That said managing WordPress on my own sites has become an extra headache I don’t want with all the security issues one has to keep on top of. So this go around with a good coupon in hand I moved the blog away from any of my own hosted services to WordPress.com.

Of course nothing ever goes easy, even more so when you’re trying to do this stuff feeling bad so I had all kinds of issues with my SSL certs and whatnot. At the end of the day where this has left me is the site is technically pointed at https://nitwhitt.com for now and the other domains are being forwarded however depending on the route and browser attempting to come here by https://michaelwhitt.com or https:// to mlwhitt.com or mwhitt.com may or may not work.

Plain http will get you here but you may get the security warning. Of course once you get here you are back in SSL land. Not that it matters as I don’t do any sales or user login things anyway. But wanted to explain in case you attempted to come in via one of those ways. For now just use https://nitwhitt.com to reach the blog. Shouldn’t be any issues that way.

Site update

I finally have moved from hosting my own WordPress blog to WordPress.com. Been having too many problems with my own web host lately so decided to just try it. I had a good coupon so figured it was the time. I haven’t really messed with the theme yet or any CSS changes but after the last time I had some hosting issues I didn’t really do much.

Mostly I just post Song of the Day post and usually those are scheduled weeks or a month in advance so I can go a while without touching the blog depending on how I am feeling. As I haven’t felt great lately I haven’t done much with it and let my SotD schedule get behind to the point I almost was not going to have new content. Anyway hopefully I can work on this some here this week or so and start blogging more.

Ice, Snow and now Sun

Its been a crazy couple of weeks between ice storms, snow storms, zero degree temperatures and now back to 64 degrees. Glad we don’t live in Texas, feel for what those people went through.

I have been dealing with the usual here, my MS has been really bothering me. I am keeping off balance, nauseated, having troubles with my right side and thinking straight not to mention my normal forgetfulness and aphasia issues. Think stressing about the weather hasn’t helped.

I go in about a month for my next Ocrevus infusion so maybe it will help some. Other than that not a lot going on. I have been trying to read when I feel like it and spend time with the lovely wife and daughter but more often than not I am in bed most of the day.

Hopefully the weather will get nice soon and I can force myself to do some yard work I want to do. I haven’t messed with any new Raspberry Pi or Single Board Computer projects or coding as my mind hasn’t been clear enough to do so though I really wish it was because I wish I felt like doing something, anything, useful.

Well that’s my update for now. Everyone take care.

Stuff

I haven’t gotten around or felt like doing much to spruce up the website yet. I hate that it is so drab at the moment. I usually don’t have it too over the top anyway however it is plain even by my standards. I am planning to link in some of my Raspberry Pi projects to the page pretty soon when I feel like it. I haven’t done anything yet with https://www.libertygeek.com since I had the accidental page deletion. I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet since I have it separate again from MichaelWhitt.com and my main blog.

I do have a few of my other domains forwarded to https://www.michaelwhitt.com such as mlwhitt.com, and mwhitt.com. I just picked up the domain NitWhitt.com because it was free and I thought it was funny, and I am nothing if not a nit wit, lol.

Anyway between my MS, migraines and trying to help my daughter with what homework I can I just haven’t had the chance to do anything else yet with the site other than schedule Song of the Days. I hope to change that soon. Hopefully in the next few days I will be adding some new content.

For now if you want to reach me I have updated my contact to be michael@nitwhitt.com (got to take use of that new domain) LMAO.

Stuff

Well as usual I maintain multiple server host. Back a while ago I started mainly blogging using my domain Https://Libertygeek.com and scheduled most of my Song of the Day post there. Since I didn’t post frequently on Https://Michaelwhitt.com I ended up deciding to just redirect MichaelWhitt.com, mwhittt.com and mlwhitt.com to Libertygeek.com. I hadn’t thought much about it and when it came time to renew the hosting package for what I thought was the one tied to Michaelwhitt.com’s old content I decided not to because I wasn’t using it.

Well I made a mistake, I mixed the packages up instead it was Libertygeek’s package that was expiring. I went to login last night to add some new content and saw it was expired and was like “oh crap”. I didn’t have any of the content backed up so I lost a years worth of postings. Not that there was anything major but still that sucks. So now I am having to start all over again. So this time around I am just going to use Michaelwhitt.com for all my main postings and my Song of the Day stuff.

Phew
