Jasetaro.com is one year old today.
I launched this site on March 17, 2008 mainly because I’d out grown the laughable 5MBs of free web space provided by my ISP. I toyed around with free services like GoeCities, MySpace, Facebook and Blogger for a while and I wasn’t crazy about any of them. So after a couple of days of careful consideration this web site was born… The past year has been a combination of fun and frustration and I’ve learned a couple of valuable lessons.
1) Choose your web host carefully – when I launched this it was hosted by Yahoo Small Business Hosting… They were a disaster, in the roughly 4 months the site was hosted with then it was off-line 8 times because of server or database glitches. I moved the site to InMotion Hosting and, knock on wood, I haven’t had a problem since.
2) I you build it they will come – spammers that is… Roughly 95 percent of the comments posted here are spam. It’s never ending battle to keep these pages and the forum free of spam.
