Where do folks host their professional websites?
I had a really nice dev plan on Wordpress, which they of course discontinued 2 months after I paid for a year. I’ve been ignoring upping to the new suite because it’s $400.
@afterthehyphen What sort of requirements do you have for your hosting?
@bgcarlisle honestly, just something consistent, more flexible than squarespace’s layout, and doesn’t cost a billion dollars a year.
I really like dreamhost. I reeeeally don’t like trying to make sense of their constantly changing plans and fee schedules.
@thelibrarian ooooh I will look into this today!
Scholar Social is meant for: researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
