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.
