Greetings from Lake Placid, Florida,
Welcome to all. It doesn’t matter if this is your first visit, or if you’re a regular, everyone is welcome here.
Again, my best-laid plans of updating this page monthly have fallen by the wayside, and my only excuse is the same as it’s been all along, and the same one everyone else falls victim to – BUSY. For that, I apologize.
About the website. When I fired up the website back in September of 2012, I never dreamed a little one-horse operation like this would see the number I see. The page views are amazing, nearly 600,000 to date!
That said, I’m at a crossroads with the website in the hosting department, and I could sure use some help. I’ve reached the limit of resources in my hosting plan. The next step is to go commercial – which is astronomically expensive, something I simply can’t do, now that we’re both retired.
The performance of the website is suffering – slower load times being the most obvious. Decision time is at hand, but what do I do?
Here are my options …
|1||Cut the number of pages||I don’t want to do this, plus as I finish my next 2 books, I’ll have more pages to post, so in the long run, I wouldn’t gain anything.|
|2||Condense the pages||That doesn’t work as there is pretty much the same amount of information, whether it’s ten pages, or five.|
|3||Start eliminating posts (early, selected, or graphic intensive)||Another something I don’t want to do. Like most people, I’d like the information to be available now, and in the future.|
|4||Remove key sections from the website (Posts by Dayna, Reviews by Dayna, DIY Interviews)||This option would end up being more expensive because I’d need one (or more) additional websites for whatever function(s) I remove. The site is a package deal.|
If someone out there has any ideas, I’m very interested in hearing from you – Dayna@DaynaLCheser.com Just remember, I’m not a computer guru.
That’s about it for now. See you next time.
