Apart from registering the dot com and hosting EVERYTHING ON THIS SITE WAS / IS FREE. You, when you are ready, can have the same. But my friend Seren has a wordpress.com site for years, is quite happy, doesn’t need the dot com and has over 17,000 subscribers.

Hi, this is me, male and 67 years old. I have two degrees a B.Sc. (Hons) in Psychology and an MA in social work. I spent ten years going around the world largely overland. Part of the story is Here. I started computing in the 1980s and in 1994 started my own computing company. In 1998 I became an ISP offering wireless Internet to my local community in Tullamore. We survived the dot com crash but confidence in the Internet fell and we no longer could obtain funding. By 2006 we were broke and closed down.
The next couple of years were hard, depression (I’m bipolar), liver failure leading to diabetes. I was not well and ended up hospitalised for several months. Starting again I decided to recreate my “Web Empire” and over the months registered 80 generic top level domains (gTLDs). I also had a massive advertising campaign for registering domains and offering computer internet training. This was not successful but I persevered. Then unfortunately I got cancer and lost everything. I was out of action for a couple of years but now I’m back.
One of my hobbies is creating animations. I have used Second Life, an online world, as a platform for them. I also love making videos, you can see them on RavensKiss.org Here is a sample, watch full screen:
