A wise woman once told me:
Boys will come and go, but blogs are forever.
I didn’t need much more persuasion after that! I decided that one of my first new paycheck gifts to myself would be purchasing a domain name for this little blog where I’ve made my home. I’ve been blogging since 2001 but having my own domain name has only been an idea for a few years. I was nervous because I change my online username about once every 5 years.
Basically, when it comes to blogging, I’m afraid of commitment. What if I get sick of being sipofstarrshine in a year? In a month? A week? A day? What if I’m sick of it now?
Oh well. If that time comes, I’ll deal with it then. But for now, I have a shiny new domain name, whoo!
It took a while for me to actually sit down and purchase it. I don’t know, I wanted to have a special occasion for it, like how I want to have a good day to start my new diaries on. (Usually birthdays, calendar years, big holidays, school years…)
… I guess Revenge of the Fifth is a good enough non-reason as any! (I had a great May the Fourth post ready but didn’t get it out in time. Next year!)
