Back in August 2012 AdamMcFarland.com 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 AdamMcFarland.com 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!
