My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

Blog technical issues and costly alternatives.

After fighting with my web host over a newbie blog, I'm pooped. I mean it was to be simple. Set it up like my other blogs, exactly the same way. Then I get the 'this blog is under construction blah blah' holding page. Then days later the page loads up – but it became a www.myblog.com/defaultpage.

I have no idea why it did this as I never typed this anywhere. So began the days of calling them and getting no help, talking to Google and getting no real help, finger pointing and arrrgh! So much annoyance. I'm totally thinking of moving up to a monthly virtual web host.

I mean, right now I'm merely paying for the name, and blogger hosts the blog. I do want to move over anyway – when I make just a shooch more as $30 per month per blog would really hurt my pocket book – as these varying plans like virtual hosting stacks are rather tempting. Instead of redirecting and making sure both places talk to each other correctly, it would be easier to have it all under one roof. But gurr. This situation is making me consider all this down time in dealing with the alternative.
