Moved my blog to AWS Lightsail

Hey all! It took 6 years but finally a new post.

I went to AWS re:Invent earlier this month and it inspired me to play around with AWS and the first step was to move my blog. I moved my DNS to Route 53 and spun up a WordPress instance using Lightsail. In theory it’s only going to cost $3/month which is much better than what I was paying before. We’ll see after the first free month if that’s the case.

I hope to start blogging more again. I’m playing around with creating an image uploader using S3 buckets and Lambda functions. Once that’s working, I’ll post details. And re:Invent was great and I hope to go again. This was my first time going and I learned lots of tricks to make scheduling my next visit more efficient.
