My first site was I-NeedtoKnow.com. Now defunct. That domain name cost me $75 / year, back in the day.
Finally. All my sites are on WordPress.com. Happy. Happy. 🙂

I’ve been sending money to Bluehost every month for years. It is still rated one of the best hosts though I’ve been dissatisfied from the start.
Bluehost sites frequently go down.
When you inquire why, they blame the customer. 😦
Seems Bluehost is unable to keep servers shared by many people secure. WordPress.com has almost never been hacked.
One guy at Bluehost is super. Matt Greenwood <firstname.lastname@example.org> If you MUST host on a for profit server, I’d recommend you contact him.
WordPress.com is by far the best of the free web hosting services. I do pay for some add-on services with WordPress.com. Happy to support that excellent company
I updated this site to a 2016 template. And switched the font to Lato, supposedly one of the most readable. AND made the fonts larger so old farts like myself can read them more easily on mobile devices.
I love WordPress and recommend it to one and all.
But like pretty much every veteran user, I hated their new “Beep Beep Boop editor” when it was introduced.
Fish of Gold explains why:
There was so much outcry that WordPress kept in the old editor as an alternative. I use the old editor.

Instead, they decided to launch an app. On Mac first. Here are the highlights:
This is my first post using the WordPress.com app for Mac. Seems to work quite well. 🙂

… what would happen if I uncluttered my life.
A life uncluttered by most of the things people fill their lives with, and left with space for what really matters. A life that isn’t constant busy-ness and rushing, but contemplation and creation, connection with people I love and time for nature and activity.
That doesn’t mean I have zero clutter and zero complications: I’m a part of the world, not a secluded monk. I have possessions, electronics, distractions, and occasional busy-ness. I just would reduce it to make space for things of more importance. …
That’s from a Gymnastics friend of mine, Tony Retrosi.
He’s preaching to the converted in my case. 🙂
One point in that post hit home more than any other:
• Your attention is your most valuable possession. Give it as a gift to the people you love most, not a bunch of clowns on the Internet. Give it to the work that matters most, not distractions. …
1. You can simply assume there is no privacy. No privacy online. None on phone.
2. you can try taking some small steps to discourage the NSA and other organizations from collecting data on you.
On the other hand, Google is responding to criticism, now offering end-to-end mail encryption, to try to make your email private.
