This blog is now hosted on GAE, Github Pages, and Heroku. This means that I am using three free cloud hosting providers hosting my content. They all allow the use of CNAMEs, which is important for using a custom domain. It costs me no money. I don’t have to provision, configure, or maintain a single server. And there are speed benefits and even more redundancy from using three rock solid auto-scaling hosting providers. This should provide me with sufficent resources in the unlikely event that any of my content ever becomes popular enough for the so-called “Slashdot” effect.

If there is enough interest in how I did this I will write up a how-to. Suffice it to say that it is fairly simple and straight-forward. I just wanted to brag a little. :-)
