Old web links will still work and display the correct page.
The redirection of socialpanic.org has some minor issues but https://social.coldstreams.com works fine. For some reason, some images on pages viewed via socialpanic.org address do not display the images on their pages but display a clickable link to the image (Update – I think I have fixed this).
RSS News Readers – Important!
Why the change?
- I have about 10 to 15 times more visitors on this server than on the WordPress.com hosted blog. I assume search engines down rank WordPress.com hosted web sites – or something.
- Cost. I already have this server so no need to pay twice.
- By self hosting the web site more features are possible that are not available on WordPress.com.
