New domain

So I was finally able to go ahead and purchase a domain! I’m so happy!

You might have noticed that the theme is more or less the same. I tried to build a theme of my own but I have been so out of practice (last time I built one was around 6 years ago) that I couldn’t get it figured out right away (I should have done better in trying to back up my themes from all those years ago so I could access them). But I do intend to some behind-the-scenes work so I can get my theme development skills back up to par.

But I’m so excited to have room to run around and spread my wings a bit and be able to have all the tools I’ll need as an aspiring web developer.

I found a good host in Awe-Inspired.com. They were really quick to get me set up and ready to go. Best of all, it’s free. Which is something that I was desperate to find because I’m broke college student.

I decided to go with a .com domain because I figured it would just be easier to navigate to. And now, when I tell my friends or fellow web developers where my blog is, I don’t have to rattle of some long url.

Back when I was younger, I was the proud owner of 3 domains. There was fieldofdaydreams.net (where my blog was located) twentyninesongs.info (where I had a photoblog) and sageleaf.me (where I had my blog concerning the Warriors series by Erin Hunter).

For now I’ll just stick with one and maybe add more as time goes on.

    Oh my gosh, congratulations on getting a domain for you blog! Believe it or not, I just purchased another domain for my blog. You might remember visiting jamiejones.me ? Well, I ditched that domain as I felt that it wasn’t a blog’s name. I actually registered http://poetry-thoughts.com at 1and1.com and I too am hosted with awe-inspired.com. Welcome to the family!

    I believe I recognize your domain fieldofdaydreams.net. I actually have around 5 domains right now. 1 is for a collective, 1 is for a fanlistings collective, 1 is for my blog, and 1 is for my portfolio. I have never ever had 4 domains at once! When I first started blogging, the rule that my dad had on me was “You can only have 1 domain at a time. If you want a new domain, you can register a new one, or if you want to keep the domain you can re-register that one.” Honestly, this rule wasn’t that bad of a rule. My dad’s just one of those people that doesn’t understand the use of multiple domains. I do, but he doesn’t.

    Anyways, I will add your new blog’s link!

    I remember all your old domains. 😛 I suppose you remember some of mine as well (like Heartdrops haha). It’s good to see you back, and nice to see you invested in a new domain. I actually have the same host that I did back when I had my first domain!

    I wanted a .com but I could not think of anything that I really liked where the .com was available. And sometimes it didn’t sound nice with .com either. I had some .com domains over time… but none I would have stuck with for a blog. I actually own heygeorgie.co now, but it redirects to my blog now. Many people said they love the dot between ‘hey’ and ‘georgie’. 🙂

    Most people are familiar with .com as well, so you made a wise decision 😀
