Moving to WordPress.com

After running my wp.zacgordon.com site on a shared SiteGround server with several other WP sites and having this site (and the others) hacked 3 times now in the last few months, I felt it was time to make a change.

I have thought about moving my WordPress blog to WordPress.com before, but never pulled the trigger because I appreciate the additional plugins and customizations I could make with a .org install.  However, after the recent hacks, for ease of mind, I’m moving over to WordPress.com.

I’m actually excited about this because it lets me keep up to date on changes in the WordPress.com interface and feature offerings.  This site is now live on .com, but I do have some work to do converting the Courses section over to Portfolio post type.

Alright, so back to work we go 🙂  Thanks WordPress.com for an infrastructure I don’t have to worry about.

Loving the New Academia Theme for WordPress.com

WordPress.com just got a lot more helpful for schools looking to have a great site while still leveraging the benefits of using a .com site instead of self hosting. A lot of schools put huge resources into running their own sites and servers, but for the right schools now, they have a great alternative: The Academia Theme.

Great job to WPZoom, who created the theme.
