Today marks the fifth anniversary of my blog being posted on the WordPress VIP service, and once again (as I do annually on the anniversary) I want to commend the WordPress VIP for those folks who want and need absolutely bulletproof service. It’s been so long since I’ve had any sort of backend or server issues that I literally cannot remember when it was, except to say it was definitely before October 8, 2008. There are very few things in the world I can recommend without reservation, and the WordPress VIP service is one of those things.
I’ll also go ahead and note that the standard-issue WordPress service works pretty darn well, too. If you’re someone who wants a blog but doesn’t want to deal with hosting, it’s a much-better-than-decent alternative (and if you do host yourself, you can get the WordPress platform for installation on your server).
Thanks again to the WordPress folks for doing such a fine job keeping my site up and running, year after year, five years straight. I really do appreciate it. And I’m happy to say so, to anyone who wants to know.
