We don't care who you are 

At The Self-Hosting Blog, we are huge advocates for online privacy. We believe that you should never have to compromise your own privacy, just to use the internet.

Today, in an age where giving up your personal details to randomers on the web is way too common, we want to make a change and give you back your rights.

This is why we've decided that we can make better choices with this blog.

Thank you all for your help and support!

We decided to try and help others on their journey into self-hosting. We believe that when using services online you should never have to compromise on privacy or control.

We also believe that self-hosted applications and utilities should be available to everyone. We have made it our mission to make our posts as accessible as possible, even to those just getting started with self-hosting and creating a homelab.

Emails will be sent throughout the month according to the billing cycle. Haven't focused on this until now so let's see how it affects our MRR.
