I’ve been using Edublogs to host this blog since October 2006 (almost 3 and a half years!) and a couple of people have recently asked why I’m still using them.
The truth is it’s probably 60% habit and 40% avoidance of hassle plus having to redirect people to any new hosting solution. On the other hand, the adverts, nag screens ever-approaching image-hosting limit and lack of customisation are all motives for moving on.
In particular it’s definitely time to sort out my categories (as my focus has shifted massively since my M2 year!) and a redesign is probably long overdue. This I could do here easily enough, but maybe it’s time for a fresh start…
I’m not really wanting to spend any money on hosting, so as I see it I have a couple of options:
- Leave things as they are
- Install yet another PHP/MySQL CMS on the school webserver and redirect
- Use WordPress.com
- Something else…
I already host 2 Moodles on there that aren’t strictly part of my schoolwork (although I do consider them helpful as part of my CPD) and don’t want to overload bandwidth or annoy TPTB if I can help it.
Thoughts, as always, very welcome!
