Recently I desired to have support for ASP.NET 4.0 in my web hosting. Since I currently had an unlimited shared Windows hosting plan with GoDaddy I had hoped that the transition would be easy. So, I looked into what they were offered in the way of hosting that supported .NET 4.0. From my search the only offering they had was a Windows Grid hosting plan which was identical to my current plan except it was hosted across multiple servers instead of one shared server. I thought that this would be great, clustered hosting and support for .NET 4.0, unfortunately I was wrong.
Recently I was struggling with something in WordPress, any time I would try and make a change to a plug in or try and upgrade it would prompt me for a FTP Login. This was frustrating me as this blog was the only one I’ve set up so far that was giving me these problems. So it became my personal quest to try and find a fix for it
Being that I wanted to try and keep this blog as code centric as possible I quickly realized that I needed an easy and effective way to add code snippets to my blog posts. Thus began my search into an effective way tool to do just that.
I decided that it was time to focus on my personal website more and that I really wanted to be able to have a blog that I could post to. The conundrum became whether or not I would write my own blogging software or find an open source version out there are on the market that did exactly what I wanted.
