My blog is painfully slow for the last few days, and I would like to pay someone (anyone?) 15 BitCoins to optimize it for me (I would do it myself, but I'm not sure I have the time right now).
It's currently hosted at GoDaddy. What I'm thinking is giving him a snapshot of the filestructure of my blog, and asking him to setup an Amazon EC2 image that will run it.
After I test his image, I will switch my domain to point to the new EC2 instance and change the admin password. My blog is rather small (only 80 readers), and I gather I don't have anything vital/precious/secret there. The private information I could think of that I wouldn't want leaked is perhaps a few emails addresses from some of my users (not that happy about it being leaked, but I assume that email addresses aren't that expensive, and nobody will have the incentive to do anything interesting with them).
Do you think it's a viable option? Or instead, should I absolutely not do, in order to protect my user' privacy? What are security risks are there?
BTW, I don't yet have anyone specific in mind. If you're interested, ping me at [email protected].
