Master of My Domain
Yesterday I registered a couple of domain names. One was under my own name, because I plan to set up a job resume site. The other was phantomobserver.com, which I tried to set up to head directly to this Blogspot site.
Testing the link last night got somewhat panicky, because Blogspot went down and I couldn't figure out if I'd accidentally disconnected something, but by midnight I was able to get the link working. (I later found out it was a system-wide thing, which was a relief.)
I decided to register this domain because I have some long-term plans for this blog, and I don't necessarily want to be tied down to Blogspot. (If anyone can recommend some alternatives I'd be glad to hear about their experiences.)
