I’d been thinking about registering the domain name “streamoc” for my blog for quite awhile. I figured it’s a better domain name than blog.gailoverholt.com. But I couldn’t decide between streamoc.net (since it’s not a commercial site) or streamoc.com (since .com is the more frequently used). So I registered both. And you know what? I got a coupon for one of the domain names, so it only cost the same as registering one name.
I’m not going to set the domain name up just yet. While the limitations of WordPress.com bother me at times, I really like the ability to find related posts. (Yes, I know there are plugins that would allow me to do that on a stand-alone site, but I’m trying to get some other blog things taken care of first.)
I’m really glad I started reading Darren Rowse’s ProBlogger again. He’s starting up another Blog challenge thingie (that’s the technical term for “31 Days to Build a Better Blog”), and I found out just in time, before the project actually begins. It doesn’t start until April 6th, but I’ll be ready! (Unless, of course, I forget about it between now and then.)
