[UPDATE: 2 Jan 2019] New Year, New Me, right? I’ve finally relented & purchased the WordPress.com hosting. You can now continue to visit my blog at my original domain at WinnieKepala.com
OK. So, here’s an update.
I’ve now moved WinnieKepala.com to this WordPress.com site. The new domain for my blog is now…
WinnieKepalaBLOG.wordpress.com Still the same WinnieKepala.com
Note: Or you can still type WinnieKepala.com and get redirected to this new website.
From when I started this blog as a hobby in 2009, over the years, I have migrated it to a self-hosted dotcom website and became an active blogger. I started attending events, getting products for reviews, and even made some money here and there.
But ultimately, life took over. As per my last post here, you know I’m not as active anymore on the blog.
A few days ago, I got the annual notice that my blog hosting is up for renewal. It was a time for reflection and decision.
Domain renewal, I seldom bat an eyelid. Because I knew I would surely keep WinnieKepala.com for awhile. But hosting is expensive! Keeping a dormant blog alive is expensive. But I’m not quite ready to shut the blog down yet.
Technicality (for the non-tech savvy of you) aside, the blog lives on,
but with a different the same web address. You can still type WinnieKepala.com in the address bar, but this time, it will redirect you to this WinnieKepalaBLOG.wordpress.com website instead. There’s another issue of lag and delay in loading the page – which is a problem I will fix another day with my domain host).
I HAVE to keep the historical blogposts alive. They’re an accumulation of years of research, and producing content that I can’t just let go. I will continue to keep this here for posterity.
Blogposts will still not be too regular, though. I will update only if I have something to say, or longer content to share. And will do so on my social media pages using #WinnieKepalaBLOG hashtag.
[Update] I have also registered a new WinnieKepala.blog domain name
As usual, if you want more regular updates, and to keep up if and when there’s a new blogpost, do follow me on social media:-
- Facebook – for reviews, tech news, conversations
- Instagram – day-to-day Insta-stories, family pics etc
- Twitter – news shares in tech, entertainment etc
Final note. If you’re reading this, THANK YOU for sticking around.
