Restarting the blog

This is my new blog, now being hosted on Blogger.com.

I used to host my own blogs because I was concerned about losing control of my older blogs. When I had my previous blog (http://ronsrants.editthispage.com) it was being hosted on one of Dave Winer's properties (www.editthispage.com). I was happy with the interface but I never counted on it going away.

Blogger has been around a long time and is owned by Google. I don't think we will see blogger go away anytime soon. This is a fair exchange for my time, since keeping WordProcess up and running with the latest versions was easy enough but I was never on top of it as much as I'd like, particularly from a security and spam-management point of view. This gives me the freedom to blog without the hassle of owning the infrastructure. Cloud at its finest.
