After a bit of a go on my own terms using my own server, it’s been a good run with the server from DigitalOcean but since my servers on there have become exclusively for business usage.

The problem with that, is I have to hand the account over to myself, the business and justify the business expense.

So because bureaucracy is as it is, I have to seperate the personal server from the bank of business ones. And because my DreamHost account is personal, I started up a DreamHost VPS for this site and EC.JE.

During this week, I’ve got to do the manual part, setting it all up, getting the plugins ready and moving the content. At least the images are still hosted on a CDN service.

A while back I registered a domain vx.sg, the name of the blog was Version X (eg Version 10) because it was my first folley with using Ghost as a blogging platform.

I wasn’t really feeling Ghost to be fair, and it was legitimately the 10th incarnation of my blogging activities.

However, since spinning down the old Ghost server, the domain has remained unused. Until today, since the 10th version of my BBS is also now coming to age, it seems apt to use this domain for what it’s designed for. And I do like it myself.

I’ve also put together a small website on there for updates and of course, on the news server we now have a local group called mmn.v10.

I’ll also post to my blog here about changing up the BBS, what I add, etc.

One of the things I implemented last night on my site ec.je happens to be Google AdSense, I’m not going to lie, I am a broke ass bitch and the £53 I made in the past three years be staring at my sorry self waiting to hit the big £60 payment.

I already put WordAds here, since they don’t really interfere, plus I have included a DreamHost ad that shares my referral funds (which incidentally all referral cash goes to my hosting bill). And for my blog that is more than enough.

For ec.je, I can be a bit liberal, but Google has gone FULL ON CRAYLAY. Like I mean, now I understand why Buzzfeed looks like Times Square or Piccadilly Circus. Like I know not a lot of people read my blog, I don’t really write it for that reason, but if hundreds did, what Google is doing on the other site would totally drive you all mad.

I’m not 100% sure that I will keep the Google Ads up there, but I promise you dear reader, they’ll stay up until I get my hard earned 60 squids.

Although in the interim I will see if I can do anything to reign in the old banners. I did also make sure those annoying mobile pop ups will not be a thing. You can at least thank me for that.
