I made the switch to Scribefire

Since I never found any good information or reviews on AirPress, I decided to go with ScribeFire since that seems to be the current favorite wordpress blogging tool.

Anyone using Airpress?

I read Matthew Mullenweg’s mention of Airpress and am wondering if anyone has used it and what they think of it?  Please.. leave a comment if you have.

Me and My foot

In game, people have been asking about my recent hospital stay. I am posting this in response.

A little over 2 weeks ago I was making my first visit to my new Doctor, I was changing because I was interested in being treated as a person instead of as an annoyance which is how the old doctor office made me feel. My provider was great but that was where it stopped. It took me almost 9 months of waiting for the new doctor had an opening for new patients.

What site do you use to host your WordPress blog and why?

I am seeking opinions and comments on what site is working best for you with your WordPress blog?  I think I will need more than what wordpress.com can supply and I am to technically challenged to do a lot of coding stuff. I am hoping to find a site that offers more than an installer. The one I use now has that but the installer doesn’t make the software work without going in and making manual changes. Plus every time there is an upgrade, one must go in and do this manually. I have heard of some sites supposedly that have scripts or whatever to even automate this part.

Basically, any and all comments would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance 🙂
