Moving my blog to Silvrback  

I have been using Svbtle since it opened up to the public and in general I have enjoyed it. It’s has a very clean design and you get to blog in Markdown which is great when you typically talk about code.

But I have been wanting to set up a custom domain for my blog which typically requires paying for blog hosting (which I’m fine with). And if I’m going to be putting money into something I want to make sure it’s the best I can get for the money I’m spending. And that’s when I found Silvrback.

Basically Silvrback does everything that Svbtle does in terms of features from custom domain to letting people subscribe by email. I still do prefer Svbtle’s overall look, Silvrback isn’t far off. And then there is the fact that Silvrback is USD 30/year while Svtble works out to USD 72/year. Look quibbles aside, I just couldn’t ignore the difference, especially when I have Damian of Silvrback so responsive to questions/suggestions I had.

And so my blog/bio page is now at http://www.snarky.ca/ and is hosted by Silvrback (if you prefer HTTPS access you can get it through https://nothingbutsnark.silvrback.com/ but obviously that is not as stable as the custom domain).
