Back in January, I announced that we would be moving away from WordPress.com and would be venturing off on our own to the world of self-hosting. In early February, we did just that as Vortex Effect moved to being hosted on DreamHost. At the time, it was a good move. We were established and had what had been a nice follower/subscriber base.
