Dedicated again

I mentioned briefly in my last entry that I had moved hosts, and I wanted to talk about it a little more.

In November I purchased a dedicated server. Before this I had two VPS accounts. One for friends and the other for Giraffe Host. At the time I thought it was ideal to have the two accounts. However, when the VPS for Giraffe Host started to increase ram usage and start to have a lot of issues, I knew I had to make a decision. I contacted my host, Wired Tree and I was able to have a special deal where I could have an awesome dedicated server for just $10 extra of what I was paying for the two VPS accounts. It made absolute sense to do it. Everything has been running well so far!

In my post when I introduced Giraffe Host, I said that I did not want to make the mistake of “upgrading when isn’t necessary” this does not fall under that category. It falls into the upgrading when it makes sense.

I can notice a big difference with website speed and I really feel much more comfortable having a dedicated server, because I know what accounts I am hosting and it is not being shared by any unknown parties. I also love the fact that I know the server I have is good, and I can share that with other people with free hosting.

I have had people say to me that I should charge for hosting. I have tried it before and I just… I feel weird about it. I want it to be a fun thing, and be able to help like minded people in some way. I can understand the logic that there should be some revenue that keeps everything cycling.

Maybe I will sell cupcakes. No. I would probably just eat them all. -_-

Christmas Card Exchange

Hello everyone, my blog had been offline for a little while as I was moving hosts. I plan to talk about that in another post.

I also made a new site called Cute Magic. >.<

Christmas is not far away and I would love to see if anyone is interested to exchange snail mail cards with me?

This year I had a new design printed in postcard form. I am quite happy with how it turned out. Here is a sneak.

 

If you are interested just leave a comment and I will email you, or send an email to kya@love.com and I will get back to you. :]

I may not be able to afford to send a card to everyone, but please ask and I will do my best. :3

Questions:
1. Want to exchange cards?
2. Are you sending cards this year?
3. Do you include anything with your cards? (I usually like to include a note and a little gift, I think it’s fun.)
4. What is on your Christmas wishlist?

Kya
