This Blog runs on WordPress installed on a Windows Server that runs in Azure. There are obviously cheaper and easier (probably?) places to run a WordPress blog. But I work in a Microsoft centric environment and I work in Azure (a lot) and doing it this way allows me to tinker and test things. I… Continue reading Another Blog?
Azure CDN Endpoint Certs Bummer
I have a site (Michael’s World) that uses an Azure CDN Endpoint. I have shared here before that you can use this to share static web content. I had it setup with the apex/root domain and went to update the cert. (You have to bring your own cert or pay for a cert for the… Continue reading Azure CDN Endpoint Certs Bummer
Redirect Http to Https using Azure CDN
In my recent efforts to move my one page, static content website, I have had a few challenges. First let me say, those challenges were most certainly due to my ignorance, and not due to the technology in use. Also, some of my issues are related to trying to make a simple task more complicated… Continue reading Redirect Http to Https using Azure CDN
Finally got it all working
I have been on a quest the past few days to move one of my websites to Azure. Overall, it isn’t really that difficult, but it also isn’t very clear. First, I created an Azure Storage Account, and enabled it for static website capability. Then, because I don’t like easy, I enabled it for HTTPS/TLS… Continue reading Finally got it all working

Revisiting my Blog
I have spent a decent amount of time over the years, trying to convince myself to spend some time on my blog. I have updated the OS of the VM that runs it. I have migrated from whatever platform I started on (I think I had two different ones going at one point.) I have… Continue reading Revisiting my Blog
Still not there
A while back, I said I was making progress on migrating this blog to Azure. In case you care, I didn’t. I was really interested in doing so for a little while, but got busy on other things, and … lost interest. I am interested again, so maybe this time I will make it. The… Continue reading Still not there
Not quite yet…
So the other day I said that I was moving this blog to Azure. I have tinkered with that, and am actually making a little progress. (This happens when you put little effort/time into something). I decided to bring it back up where it was in order to do an easier transfer of the image… Continue reading Not quite yet…
Migrating to Azure
So, at the time of this writing, my blog is down. If you are reading this, then I must have succeeded in migrating it to Azure for hosting. If I didn’t succeed, maybe I will be the only one who reads this. I am an “on again/ off again” blogger, so anything is possible. I… Continue reading Migrating to Azure
Express Route Provisioning Error
We have recently decided to invest in an Express Route circuit for Azure. It is supposed to be helpful with Azure and Office 365. There are two ways to provision the ExpressRoute circuit. Both require PowerShell. There is the classic: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/expressroute-howto-circuit-classic/ And there is the Resource Manager: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/expressroute-howto-circuit-arm/ Here is the note about those… Continue reading Express Route Provisioning Error
