Oh, hey, I got both of my websites working properly again. I only understand about 75% of why they weren't working and what part of what I did fixed them vs what was futile and a waste of time, but they're up and running and now come with SSL certificates for HTTPS, which is a nice bonus.
Part of the problem, I think, was that I initially may have set up the SSL certs incorrectly. I'm not actually sure about that, though. Either way, they're both working and I can now focus on rethinking the focus on my "portfolio" site. Do I want to keep it mostly as-is? Do I want to reduce it to a simplified "about me" page that points elsewhere for things like my blog (on the other site) and maybe fediverse accounts?
@keithzg When I finally got the site running again I was surprised how effective it is at it's boring purpose (basically being a resume/portfolio). I even have a "professional" blog that I haven't updated in literally years.
I feel like the portfolio idea works OK but a more interesting blog, that's a bit more personal but not my personal blog (which exists elsewhere) could be interesting/fun. But trying to maintain two blogs isn't easy when I barely update the one that I do "maintain."
