After writing a status update, as usual I decided to throw up a blog post, mainly to solidify my choices here.
I’ve bounced between a few options to break sus in to different subdomains that focus on a particular topic or do the smart thing and run it off one install of Yellow.

Easy peasy. Here we goooooooo
