At long last, I’m going to take the advice of several folks and move. I’ve registered a domain name and I’m looking into a host for a WordPress blog. When the time comes, I’ll leave a trail of breadcrumbs.
This is part of a plan to disentangle myself from as much of Big Tech as I can. Short of becoming a hermit, I won’t be able to totally remove Big Tech from my life, but I’m planning on removing as much as I can.
This ought to be interesting.

So far, not so bad. But I spent over 30 years in IT, so things like server setups, DNS work and the like don't require learning, just refreshing. So far the new site is up, available and I'm configuring it. The big deal will be successfully importing everything from here. The way Blogger gives you a backup is as an XML file, that's one huge XML file. I'll be interested to see how it goes.
Remember to lift with your, um, mouse, not your back. Or something. Good luck to us all.
