Just a quick note on some admin stuff for the new blog.
I have found that some blog posts are not able to add comments. I have found that this is due to a setting – close comments after 28 days. This has been fixed and new comments can be added.
I am also in the middle of moving the blog, again. I have found that I can get better prices when hosting with google. Currently it is about half the price of my current hosting site Hostgator and I get 12 months or upto $360 free.
I have set up a micro instance in the google hosting cloud and set up wordpress, I have then backed up this site and restored it into the google site. I have a couple of other things to make sure of like the menus and links are all good before I change my domain to use the google hosting. You as a viewer of this wont see any changes, hopefully.
After that I plan to add some other features like a register page so you can be notified of new posts maybe even by category so you are not bombarded with information you are not interested in. This will also have a log in so you can contribute in some way.
I will also add a donation section to keep this page going, the running cost for it will be about NZ$50 a year for the domain name and I am hoping under $10 per month for hosting with google. The stories are that google hosting can cost pennies, well we will see.
