I'm moving my blog here, and there is good reasons for it.
To be honest (and in my opinion) there is no reason to keep paying a hosting service just for a blog at these days, there is exelent free services out there like this one I'm using.
Host wordpress in my home server? Don't think so, WP in my opinion requires a retarded ammount of RAM or whatever makes it run so damn slow even on a fresh install.
Then if u are a good programmer why dont you develop your own? Same thing i said before about free hosting services, they are not just 'free' they accually good!; Plus i don't have time for such thing right now (maybe if i decide to learn somthing new, coding a blog app is always a good start).
Anyhoe, Hi tumbr!
