I’ve had so much trouble over the last few months with my websites that I’ve had to take radical action. My sites, hosted by Bluehost, were attacked several times by malware and ransomware and each time it’s taken many hours to clean them up. The image above shows what my site looks like at the moment in Chrome.

In frustration, I’ve decided to move my domains to a different host and buy additional website security. I’m also moving this photoblog from Wordpress to a static site. A few years ago when I started this site, Wordpress was a popular option for blogs so I thought I’d try it. I’ve never liked it for reasons I don’t need to cover here.

It’s going to take a while to re-establish pixelznwords. I have to move this domain to the new host, develop the new site layout, and move my content. If I can do all that in a month, I’ll be happy. More likely it will take two months.
