Your next step needs to be for you to get a domain name, and a managed server. From there, you can redirect your old website to your new one (via a 301 redirect, or a manual redirect).

Interesting concept. I've always suspected that some article sites use the same software (some of the article sites that aren't as popular look like carbon copies of each other).

I would say that anything over 500-700 words should be broken up into two or more articles. The problem that I've seen with articles is that most Internet readers have short attention spans. A...
