Frequently updating… Ourselves
I used to say “Frequently updating on all things mobile”. I truly meant it. Things happened though. Things that I probably should have taken care of when I had the chance before it all snowballed. Well it’s finally been tackled.
We finally moved to a new home over at SiteGround. It was something that had been on my mind for awhile, but I never took advantage of the opportunity. When I started aQuickBit years ago, HostGator had the best deal at the time and really helped a newcomer get setup with a website.
It was a good learning experience, but as we grew, so did our resources. MobileFreq started to crawl and it became very apparent that it was time to change. Change is always a great thing. Keep fresh. Stay modern. Be resilient. Change.
So we changed.
SiteGround has what we need. They have the resources that will make mobileFreq a household name…I hope. Maybe. Eventually. Their customer support and tech staff know WordPress like the back of their hands. They know what’s up. They even gave me a call the next day to make sure everything was going smooth and if I needed any questions answered because, “Sometimes it’s easier to talk to a human and not a support ticket”. Completely blew me away.
I also did some spring cleaning on the backend with plugins. Anything that wasn’t a necessity was blown to bits. Ok well it was just deleted, but that doesn’t sound as cool.
I did add one however.
I didn’t know if the $32 would be worth it, but holy moly I’m now a believer. I’m a proud rocketeer.
This simple-to-setup caching plugin makes mobileFreq fly. The tools at pingdom show how great it really is.
Combine these two backend services with a sleek, modern, and lightweight theme and mobileFreq screams. In a good way.
I’m happy that I can now log into the site without timing out or getting just about every 5xx error in existence. I can now upload kilobyte-sized images! Most importantly, I can get posts going again.
So here’s to a redesigned and resilient mobileFreq.
Here’s To Change.
Wait I mean… No… That was HTC’s thing. Um well…
Here’s To Croutons. Here’s To Canola Oil. Here’s To Character. Here’s To Consistency. Here’s To Creating.
Here’s To Content.
