I just wanted to infom you folks that I will be switching servers to T35.net anytime within the next ten days. By doing so, I hope there will be:
1. no downtime
2. no e-mail downtime
3. the correct date
4. no excessive spam on my side (I think they have a much more decent filter on the server side)
The switch is for sure, but I am also thinking of changing names. The Daily Rundown has been running for more than year now and within this time, I have discovered:
a) what blogging and networking is all about
b) that blogging can be a major part of your life once you’re an experienced blogger
c) what this blog and my interests are about
It’s like every post that I wrote made a clearer picture of the things above. When I started this blog, and as this is my first actual blog, I had a few plans for it. First of all, yes, I was supposed to reflect on the name and blog daily, but when I witnessed how hard it can be sometimes, as you could see, I got off-track. Second, yes, there was also supposed to be a “rundown” which was posted “daily”. As you can also see, this did not happen.
So a thought came to my mind recently: the name of this blog means nothing to what I write. “The” is just there to make it sound like a newspaper. I don’t post “daily”. I never post “rundown”s. Then why do I need that name? Why can’t I change it? Well, since this is a time where I’m switching servers, I was thinking of doing exactly that. Don’t worry though, I won’t start all over, I have backed up the database so all the old posts but this one will remain. The only difference would be that this blog would be identified under a different name. That’s it. I’ll redirect www.dailyrundown.com to whatever the new name will be and it should work fine.
Oh god, look what writing without planning does. When I started this post, I had only slight intentions of changing the name, just thought I’d mention it in this post. Now that I read the post again, it looks like I am going to change the name for sure!
Anyway, any suggestions are welcome. Comments are at the bottom. firstname.lastname@example.org is my e-mail.
