5 Things I Hate about Pinterest

So, the last post I made about Pinterest was Pinterest and I on our honeymoon. Everything was perfect, we never argued and we thought we would live on the beach sipping cocktails for the rest of our lives.

Midphase Review – Web Hosting

Midphase web hosting reviewYou may have noticed that Art News Blog was offline quite a bit over the past week or so. Thanks to the lovely people over at Midphase.com for suspending my account three times and a big thank you to the tech support people at midphase hosting.. for your excellent impersonation of a brick wall. I seriously couldn’t pick the difference (I have spoken to more responsive brick walls).

The official reason for Midphase suspending me was the “amount of CPU and/or memory resources used by your account” and they said they want to help me “track down the cause as quickly as possible.” It’s more than a week later and they still haven’t found the “cause” of the problem.Continue Reading

Web Hosting Fun!

I’ve been having web hosting problems the past few days. So Art News Blog is currently being hosted on my friend’s account while I get a new account set up with a NEW host!
So if anybody has sent me an email the past few days, I won’t receive it. I still haven’t set up my email yet as I plan to move the site in the next day or two to another hosting account.
If you’re looking around for a new web hosting company, save yourself some stress and avoid using affordablehost dot com. I used to recommend them to friends until new owners took it over, which is something I now regret!

On a more positive note, I love Yahoo Hosting because it’s always online, and MidPhase hosting is also reliable and offers some good affordable hosting plans.

Update: Midphase hosting WAS good once upon a time. See my newer Midphase hosting review!
