Ok, so for sheer simplicity, I paid for a WordPress account and copied the blog contents over to it, in part because I genuinely am not sure how the current nevernotlearning.com url resolves at all, since it’s pointing to a defunct address that is somehow ending up at my Lightsail install maybe? I am genuinely not sure, because all indications are that it should not work.
Anyway, I directed the DNS to point to this address, and hopefully that will work with a little time. If not, I may let WordPress manage the DNS, but I kind of don’t want to because they seem bad at it (they charge extra for very basic stuff like privacy protection, and if I decide I want to leave WordPress, I don’t want to have to fight them for the domain name). So, the next part is a bit of waiting, which I stink at, but so it goes.
