Coyoteblog Finally Has SSL/HTTPS

After a few false starts, and prodding from several readers, I finally got this creaky 16-year-old blog (yes, started in October of 2004) onto SSL and HTTPS.  Hopefully you will not get security and safety warnings any more and will see that comforting little lock symbol by the URL.

There was one advantage to waiting so long -- the process is now ridiculously easy.  Cpanel will provide free auto-SSL certificates for all the domains on my server, but I went ahead a splurged for a paid key and that can be done entirely automatically now too.  Then, I installed a little WordPress plugin called "really simple ssl" which was in fact just that -- installed the plugin, pressed a button, and all the work was done.   It detected my certificate and did all the setup and without doing another thing, we were good to go.  It doesn't seem to have blown anything up like comments, but email me or DM me on Twitter if you see a problem.
