Should I move my blog from blogger to a self-hosted blog?

I have been blogging on this site for years and I have some faithful readers (thanks to all three of you! haha!), who have stuck by my blog through thick and thin.  There were times when I haven't even written a single post for two months and yet, they still come back.

I thought about moving this blog over to a self-hosted blog but I kind of like it here.  Blogger has been good to me and there's really not much maintenance I have to do except in making sure that content is fresh and that the blog at least has one new post every month.

While looking through my options, I found Fatcow Review, which is site where you can find web hosting reviews.  It provides you information about anything and everything you need to know about web hosting.  And the best part that I loved?  The coupon codes!   Imagine finding the best option and pricing for a web host and then get a coupon on top of it for another discount?  How much better could it be?

For now, I will remain with Blogger but if ever I do think of moving off my blog to a self-hosted blog - - I know where I should go for better price, better reviews, and coupon codes.

Do you wear sunblock? You should.

Most of us don't even think about it.  It's not something that is on our minds when we leave the house.  It doesn't matter if it's winter or summer.  The effects of the sun knows no season.  It can leave damaging effects on our skin if we don't take steps to prevent them now.

When I was younger, I loved getting all tanned and bronzed up during the summer.  I would lay out under the sun for hours just to get that glow.  I had no idea about the effects that had on my skin until I got a bit older.  I now have spots on my face as a result of this.  It is noticeable and I wanted to get rid of it.

I've tried several products that advertised sun spot removal from my skin but I have had little or no effect.  There are very successful products out there and I think a very familiar infomercial has now jumped on the bandwagon for their own dark spot remover because they know that there's a big need for it.

So, if you are being careless now -- I say, don't.  Take care of your skin and put sunblock on because you will suffer the consequences eventually.  Just saying.
