And this is why I don’t run my own blog server…
..the maintenance is a killer. Every piece of technology I own requires some amount of sysadmin time. It’s not that I’m not a competent sysadmin, it’s that there isn’t time to deal with it all and do it well.
Case in point: My Chef’n pepper grinder and Pakistani diaries entries. The photo links for those have been broken for months, and the diary entries haven’t even linked to each other correctly for as long as well. I just spent an hour fixing it. (In case you haven’t read the diaries, it’s worth a bit of your time).
If, on top of this, I also had to admin the server, that would suck. Right now I’m just using TypePad’s hosting, and frankly, that’s all I can handle.
