Few years ago I have signed up for a Digital Ocean account. I used one single droplet for my private needs, like hosting my private Git repositories and my blog. However, as I didn’t host anything else there except my blog, I decided to shut it down. From now on, my blog is on GitHub Pages, as it provides just everything I need (except automatically converting my resume to PDF. But I can live without that.)
I’m really sorry, Digital Ocean Guys, your hosting is awesome and I’ll keep recommending you to others, but paying for a droplet for one single blog is overkill.
