From today you wont find any new posts at Atariboy.wordpress.com.
I’ve had a great time with wordpress.com, the past 5 months on here have taught me a huge amount about blogging, the web and computers in general. I’ve had over 300,000 views, upwards of 400 subscribes and a top 5500 ranking on technorati.
I feel that I have outgrown wordpress.com, i feel very limited by them now; long and frequent downtime, a crappy and buggy editor and the lack of customisation. WordPress.com blogs are perfect for people who are jsut starting blogging or dont have much in the way of technical knowledge (we cant all be supergeeks!), but for me its just not enough anymore.
I’ve spent the last couple days setting up my new blog called Fishbitt.com
Its a wordpress install with a custom theme called Yellesh which i have modded to my own needs. Hosted on Dreamhost so i shouldnt have any bandwidth troubles either.
This will be my personal blog. Photography, geeky stuff and whats going on in my life, my geeky articles and tutorials will be put on GeekLimit.com.
I won’t be deleting this blog just yet, it has a good google ranking and gets a lot of hits which i can forward to my other sites now.
The only thing with Fishbitt at the moment is that the logo is a PNG and IE6 does not like PNGs!! The logo looks pretty rough, other than that it works on most browsers i think.
