At the beginning of 2013, I started a new job which actually took me out of the Windows/.Net/SQL Server world into the Unix/Open Source/MySQL/Cassandra world. It has been extremely exciting and a great deal of fun. However, what this means is that it no longer made sense to run a blog in .Net as I wanted to have something that more reflected what I was doing on a day-to-day basis. So, when my domain renewal came up I made the move from Winhost.com (a decent option for those who wish to run an inexpensive .Net website) to Dreamhost. This also meant that I moved to WordPress.
The thing I will say about Dreamhost, is that it was extremely simple to spin up this blog and to configure it. Furthermore, I had a HUGE amount of options for plugins I could use on the site, including a large amount of anti-spam options that were all free.
As an aside, I never really got the editor to work well using BlogEngine (my previous blog software). As I said, this was very simple and works very well.
Short post this time I know, but I wanted to officially welcome you to the new home!
