After self-hosting multiple sites on and off with Wordpress for nearly twenty years, I am finally done with it. Too much overhead, too many annoyances trying to diagnose broken plugins and version conflicts. In general, I feel pretty done with self-hosting at all, but especially for this sort of thing.
I have decided to move fully over to Micro.blog for this site. It’s something I had been considering for a while, having been active on the service for a few years now. They are good people and I like their philosophy, so I am glad to finally have the motivation to make the switch.
