Saw a post on Ipse Dixit where Dodd said his blog box had gone down* which prompted me to ask a question. How many bloggers run their stuff out of their houses?
I'm one. I use .Text as the blogging software. My server, Ford, is an old Quad Pentium Pro. I use my Road Runner connection and No-Ip for dynamic DNS so I don't have to worry about IP changes (which rarely happen anyway). And now, I am using BlogJet as a way to write and update my site (w.blogger was a little flaky with .Text)
All in all, it's a little more work, but I get a hell of a lot more flexibility in my blogging.
How many of my fellow bloggers out there do something similar?
*Dodd assures me he doesn't run his blog from home.
