Welcome to A Boy and His Blog!

7 Feb

Welcome to my updated, fresh, and clean blog!

I spend a lot of my spare time on my hosting company helping people with their blogs and getting them all set up with various items from google such as Analytics, AdSense and even GSuite (Google Apps for Domains).

I plan to cover a wide variety of geeky topics surrounding setting up blogs, getting the most out of your hosting, and what to look out for when maintaining your blog.

I’ll also be going into more detail on when you would need a dedicated server VS when shared hosting will do the job.

If there’s anything specific you’d like me to cover or that you’d like to learn more about, please do leave a comment and let me know. I have access to a wide variety of experts in a lot of different spaces and circles so if I know what the burning question is but don’t know the answer, I can get someone who does!

I’m really looking forward to getting this blog moving and shaking! See you on the internet!

No Frills

I think people are starting to notice just how simple this new blog of mine is. There’s no user registration, no comment section, no links all over the place, just pure content!

I don’t think people understand just how time consuming owning a blog can be when the internet is so heavily populated with spam bots raging war on every part of your web site imaginable.

Fortunately for this blog I don’t really need a comments section or links /ads for a couple of reasons.

  • I don’t have a lot of active commenters
  • The content is generally FYI and not really debateable
  • I own the server, domain name, and hosting company

Really this is a place for me to vent frustrations, offer up helpful information, and talk about things I am passionate about.

I may actually build this teeny tiny blog into something more simply out of boredom but for the time being, I am simply overjoyed to not have 20 spam comments an hour to deal with and the simplicity of this blog makes me happy!

Small Blog Format

3 Feb

This blog was always a place where I would post quick thoughts and maybe tutorials on how to build a blog, how to muck around with WordPress or how to set up different kinds of servers.

This place will still be home to all of that, however the format will also allow for me to post shorter little posts with quick thoughts.

I am really enjoying experimenting with new web site systems. Going forward from today on I want to begin to write more about writing code, and help teach others how to code.

I look forward to writing another post for anyone who reads this blog soon!
