A few weeks ago, I saw that Dreamhost was offering a free two week trial for it’s hosting services. Creating my own website has been something I’ve wanted to do for quite a while now. I thought it would be a good idea to pull everything I do all under one domain. So ideally I’d like my site to host my blog, pictures/movies, etc, etc, so I thought the free trial would be a good way to test this out. I quickly realized it’s probably not such a great idea.
I’m not a web developer. It’s a hobby of mine that I am not very good at. So I thought, can I provide a better photo experience than Flickr, or a better movie experience than YouTube? Probably not. So, I’d have to integrate those services. While doable, at best it would serve to be a proxy to all of my other hosted-for-free services. I guess that would make it easier for people to keep track of everything. Hmm… I didn’t think about that until I just typed it. My fingers are smarter than I am. :)
