I'd been hosting my website using WordPress on Arch Hosting. They just sent an email stating they're shutting down in a month, which meant I needed to find a new host and migrate my website.
I had two options
find another WordPress host, run a backup on the current host, restore on the new host and re-point my DNS switch away from WordPress and take greater control over my content Option 1 is the easier by far.
I've been working in the same place for over a decade now. In all that time, I've always worked on the same technology. While my work has been quite varied and rewarding, it has meant that I've atrophied in many ways. This year, I've started work on refreshing my tech skills again. It's been a hard road so far because I don't have a lot of time and because it's been so long since I've done that.
