I upgraded my blog to the Personal Plan on WordPress.com today. This means more storage (6 gigs instead of 3 gigs), ads will no longer appear on my page and my domain is active until November of next year. All of that cost me under $16 for the year, you can’t beat that. As a person who runs a personal blog I have found that I don’t need every bell and whistle and I have no plans on making any money from my site. Having the fine folks at Automattic/Wordpress.com take care of all the heavy lifting behind the scenes is something I am happy about. What this means is that I am extending my presence here for the long term so you get more of my special brand of nerdiness and dorkiness. Upgrading is a good thing.
