What’s in a name!
I took the decision today to set up soimasysadmin.com to point to this blog there’s a number of reasons for this:
- Looks cooler!
- Blog could be transferred at a later date
- I needed something to do
It came about a couple of days ago when I was looking at another wordpress based site that was being hosted else where. I do run my own servers at home but I have home broadband and it probably isn’t as good as what wordpress can supply so I made the decision to let it be hosted else where. However, having seen some nicely themed wordpress sites and the versatility of it as a platform I’ve been quite impressed.
One of the other reasons for looking at this as an option is the ability to manage at a greater level the content of the site, such as hooking in google analytics or putting my own adwords in place all things to be considered for the future and as I see this as a long term game i’m better off making the change now.
I’m going to leave it a few weeks before I actually flip over but I wanted to get the domain out and about and make sure that I can get a couple of referrers updated to help with the transition, hopefully it won’t have a major impact, but who knows!
Originally when I started out I wasn’t sure how long I would keep this going but it’s become a bit of a dumping ground for good information that I’ve learnt over the years and hopefully it’s been useful to more than just myself so over the next year I’ll be thinking about and maybe playing with a few other ideas all of which are helped by having the domain in place.
Oh… I also updated my About page to now have a feedback form so you can use this to contact me rather than commenting if you so wish :)
