Folks: I am hoping that over the weekend I can come to some solutions for the server overload problem. Because of your gracious help, your generosity, I have very good options now. I can upgrade with the same service or I can migrate.
In the meantime, I am restricting access at certain times of the day which I have found to be the peak hours. My goal in doing so is to keep the hosting company from suspending the blog completely because heavy traffic crashes the server again and again.
