Finally Moving to the .COM!

Back in August 2012 went up for auction. I’ve always wanted the .COM for my site for obvious reasons, so I was ready to spend some money to snag it. I suppose all of the other Adam McFarland’s weren’t interested because I grabbed it for a cool $40.

Since then I’ve been procrastinating. Moving this blog, including the 2005 – 2007 blogger archives, is a bit of a project (and not really a fun one at that). Other things were always a priority these past few years. Towards the end of last year though, I started to get the itch to redesign the blog to make it simpler, cleaner, faster, and responsive. I considered moving off of WordPress and building my own simple no-database blogging platform, partly because I’m tired of the spam and maintenance, and partly because I like the idea of rethinking the publishing platform. After giving it some thought, I decided to put that on hold for the time being and finally just move the damn site.

Over this coming weekend I’ll be migrating the blog over to and launching the new design. This will be my last post on the .NET. I’ve been holding back on some posts lately so I could get the new .COM domain ready. The RSS feed URL will stay the same so if you’re subscribed to RSS or email updates it should all be seamless. I’ll be sure to do a quick post once I’m up and running. See you on the other side!

    Congrats! I had to scarf up a for sale domain from a previous owner a few weeks ago and it was $1400 and deemed a steal – you’re lucky! My name domain is definitely not an option and I can’t even do a .an domain extension (to finish the spelling of my last name) because it’s the Netherland Antillies and they do not allow domains to be registered other than to residents – no proxy registration option or anything grrr!

    Looking forward to the .com experience 🙂

      Haha that stinks about the Netherland Antilles. It’s rare these days to have the opportunity to get your name as a .com so I really was ready to spend some $
