About this blog
Get a totally different and somewhat unrestrained perspective from a priest of both the old and new covenants, a naive philosophical recluse, a freelance skinflint and home economist, and an ascetically devoted Mormon, all living fitfully in one mind and obsessed with finding truth and meaning in a sometimes shallow, hostile and increasingly senseless world.

Moving to the Owned Server

by Jason Nemrow posted at 2018-09-23 04:03 last modified 2018-09-23 04:03

There have been a lot of changes to the online world and the security and privacy requirements for public vendors of content are getting more and more difficult to meet. Some services have chosen to be shuttered rather than take the risk of losing money in the new environment.

I have run my own web server for many years and put essay collections there among other things, but usually put newer essays meant for general consumption on Blogger and lately advertised each through Facebook.  It has worked well, but I have been feeling the need (call it inspiration) to publish upcoming essays alongside the collections on a server that I control and maintain. If a vendor like Blogger or Facebook chose to walk away from the services that I use right now, I may lose the ability to get essays to you fine readers.

I suppose I could move to other vendors when my present circumstances fall apart, but I would rather take control of the situation now before I get pushed against some wall.  In the future, my new content will be available at http://ruach.quix.us and still be advertised through Facebook and other venues.

My server has some interesting abilities that Blogger lacks, so I intend to take better advantage of those, especially ones that keep you reading! I hope you spend more time reading even if you aren't responding to a Facebook post.

As always, I thank all of you for being such loyal readers!
