How its going.

Okay, so it’s been just over a week since I posted my first article after doing a redesign and relaunch of this blog. It has been an adventure thus far with a few hiccups that ultimately led to me getting behind schedule on my goal to post a minimum of once per week. However, as I am writing this it seems that it will likely only be a slight delay (one or two days later than I hoped for).

As a result of this, I was not ready for the fact that using the custom name servers from WordPress would break all functionality of my e-mail. The joys of not paying for everything in one spot and using Google Domains/Workspace.
