2017 Blog Update

Whew, it has been awhile since my last post ..blows dust off the RSS feed.. My little blog needed some attention in both routine maintenance and content.

First, I deleted all the pending spam comments. Annoying, but easy.

Second, I backed up the website and applied pending WordPress and plug-in updates.

Third, I enabled and forced HTTPS everywhere. This was inspired by the growing trend of HTTPS everywhere and particularly Troy Hunt’s blog post on setting up free SSL for an Azure website on a Shared plan. This was fairly easy, involving a little DNS knowledge, enabling a routing rule in my CloudFlare account, and changing one setting in the WordPress admin settings.

Finally, I just need to resume posting regularly. Should be easy, right? =P
