Grab a coffee and a cookie or a glas of wine and … whatever snack you like and have a look around. There haven’t been so many changes from the former blog home. The biggest one obviously was the switch from wordpress.com to self-hosting at my own domain. If you’re reading this in a feedreader you probably will have to update the RSS feed. I transferred the email subscribers, so they should be good to go as well.
Everyone else, just bookmark this new URL http://ctbm.net and visit me here from time to time. In case you haven’t figure it out right away, that’s short for Choose To Be Me.
I had considered choosetobeme.net (or .com or whatever) at first, but that’s so much to type whenever I myself want to leave my blog adress somewhere. If you remember the blog’s title it should be easy to remember the URL, I hope.
I haven’t posted a lot in the last few weeks or even months, but I’m planning to change that. I know I’ve said that several times over the last few months, but I really mean it. Honestly! ;-) In the last few days/weeks this move has kept me busy but now that I’ve settled in here, I’ve got time and hopefully incentive enough to start writing more.
For a few years, self-hosting seemed too much work and effort and I thought it might require much more knowledge of all kinds of technical stuff, so I didn’t dare to take that step. I admit that taking it now might be another issue of procrastinating away from other things I actually should have been doing. I don’t know. It wasn’t that much work and I obviously knew enough to make that move. But I couldn’t have done it without some help from the seriously wonderful Lisa, who answered a lot of my questions and who is still in the process of adjusting the CSS to my specific wishes. Which means there most probably will be a few more (tiny) changes in the “look & feel” of this blog sooner or later. But until then… Welcome ;-)
