A nice side benefit is that now the Simple Location data I’d like to use will now self-populate when I make posts relating to location!
So, apparently some time in October and unbeknownst to me, my website got (was given?) an SSL certificate so that it would resolve via https. I accidentally discovered this today and spent a few minutes setting up the appropriate redirects so that everyone is forced to use https links to access my site. I may still have a few administrative redirects and some bookmarklets to tweak along the way, but the whole process was far simpler than I would have expected.
