For the longest time I just let my domain sit idle.  It was hosted by a Swedish company, and although they were fairly non-responsive, they offered some very cheap hosting plans.  Caveat emptor, I guess.  Finally, the hosting company stopped responding altogether, and my domain registration was due to expire.  Thanks to some moderately laborious research, I was able to figure out a way to get my domain moved to a more responsive host, and LaughingSquid set me up with a web package in literally minutes.  Hopefully this new-found sense of accomplishment will provide motivation to keep blogging, at least it will give me a platform to tinker with WordPress and graphics.
