For nearly 10 years, I ran WarrenErnst.com off of a server in my office linked via a very high-speed DSL line to share my thoughts, my photos, my comments on products I reviewed for CPU Magazine / PCMagazine / Windows Magazine that couldn't make it to print, my Blog, and other stuff.
And while I learned lots about about server management and security, Drupal and other CMS's, and was able to control spam to my domain better than commercial providers for a while, let's get real: anyone who wants to know what's going on with me is going to check out my Facebook and Twitter pages, the magazine publishes pretty much everything I'm thinking about products these days, and Gmail handles Spam like it's psychic, so there's no need to blow $300 a year on electricity running a server 24/7 unnecessarily.
So now my stuff is here on Google. Let's see how well it works.
Finally, if you want to read from The Book of Thrustmaster, or read my thoughts on Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) or Schatzki's Ring, that's still here too.
