I’d like to welcome everyone to our new blog home, at WordPress.com.
WordPress.com offers free hosting that meets the needs of us at trustfundsforkids.com. The domain name trustfundsforkids.com now redirects here, and the official site is http://www.trustfundsforkids.wordpress.com.
I would have hosted over at blogger since then you get the “Google juice” in terms of distribution but for some, ridiculous reason you can’t embed excel files into the blog posts (you can if you link them to google docs, but that is a pain). I want the excel files here so that I can see the portfolio details from any computer.
My friend Dan and I are both amazed at what’s available, for free, on the internet. I was able to import the blog over in half an hour, and then I re-directed the domain name after I tested it out a bit. One annoying fact is that the media links all are tied to the former domain name and I need to manually fix them which will take an hour or so (I can’t just use a plug in since it is a hosted blog) but, in the grand scheme, that’s pretty minor.
I guess there are occasional ads, I hope that they are not too annoying. They aren’t from me and if they help support wordpress.com that’s fine with me, too.
Another minor item is that Dan’s posts were assigned to me but since our royalties are zilch it isn’t that big of a deal.
Maybe someday I will look at some of the enhanced services but for now it seems like the free blog can do everything I need. That’s great and I hope that you, as a visitor, enjoy your time here at the blog.
