Primary URL Description: This website is currently hosted at WordPress.com. I chose this option as the best way to begin building the site without having to learn the processes involved in more independent hosting while creating a baseline of content for the site. I intend to move the site to a hosting service that will allow me to add more features to the website than the current host allows.
