Thanks so much, DD! I have found new hosting and he's supposed to have it all set up for me to start blogging in the next few weeks. I am paid up until Sept. 19 where I am. If this guy doesn't get things set up in time, I'll have to pay for another year there, but they can set up WP blogs as easily as anyone, so they say, and my archives are already there. I have all my archives on my own HD anyway, and don't plan to have all of them available anyway. Nobody but me has looked at most of them over the years, but I'll have a rich trove of things I can republish if I don't have anything to say sometimes. HA HA.... imagine THAT. LOL
If you know of decent hosting for under $85. a year, I'd be interested. Infinology has done a good job for me the last nine years and I'm not complaining, but my budget is small.
My domain name only costs me $15. a year.
