So, I am now seriously considering getting back into political blogging, but I have a couple of things left to work out.

For one thing, I can’t decide whether to use this wordpress.com blog or host my own.  The benefit of the first is that it is free.  The drawback is that I can never advertise on it, so I remove the possibility of ever making money from it.

The benefit of the second is that I can have total control over what I do with the site.  The drawback is that I have to pay for it.

I gave this some thought and realized that I don’t want to have ads on the site.  I also don’t want to pay to have the site hosted, nor can I afford to pay for a full year up front.

Besides, I already own the domain name I will use, so I can transfer it to my own hosted site if I want to at some point in the future, without losing people.

Now that that is figured out, comes the hard part.  It was through a great deal of prayer and consideration that I stopped doing She’s Right before.  I need to take the same time and care with this decision, as well.

Things have changed in my life since then to the point where I think I can go back to blogging, I just need to have some boundaries.

For one, I will probably do just one post a day.  And I cannot get bogged down with discussions in the comments.  I kind of have in mind, my answer to VDB, in a sense.  Except, I will allow comments, probably.

I need to figure out if I can do this without it taking over too much of my life, like it was before.  My primary responsibility is to my family and I can’t get involved in anything that will push them into second place.  Keeping up with everything that is going on, enough to blog intelligently about it, can be a full-time job in and of itself.

  3. Funny how you Xtians seem to justify everything after the fact. Holocaust was God’s will too, I guess. Suckers.

    Anyways, how you liking WordPress? I started off on the free one but found it too limiting, so I bit the bullet and bought some server space from Bluehost.com, $6.95 a month, and they have the best tech support of ANY company I’ve ever dealt with.
