Blog stuff & sunflowers

I realize that I keep doing this and that & going back and forth around here and I apologize.   I am ready to go on posting normal posts and not having to worry about all this blog stuff.  (And I’m sure you are ready for me to do that too!)  This blog feels like an extension of my home and I am trying to find a way to preserve it instead of starting a new one.  I really do not want to start a new one. 

Tonight I was doing some research on changing my URL.  You see, the problem is not the current name of my blog, it is the former name which is also the web address.  If I can change my web address, then there will not be unwanted links for me and I could continue on without doing a big blog upheaval.  However, changing my URL is going to cause a bit of a disturbance because you all won’t have links to it.

Then I found that I could purchase my own domain and change the address AND have my friends & family automatically forwarded to my new URL. 

I know that I would still have to make some changes around here to make it a bit more anonymous but I would not have to totally reinvent the whole blog. 

And that makes me happy.

I seriously do not want to start another blog.  Have I said that too many times all ready?

So what do you all think?  Have you ever purchased your own domain?  Do you have any advice? 

And if you aren’t sure what I’m going on and on about, here is my post about my blog problems.

So there may not be as big of changes going on these next few days!  Yay!  But if you have any advice, please share.

(And I’m going to stop moderating comments because some seem to be getting lost.  Sorry again for being wishy washy there.  I just can not bear that someone would think I would not publish their comment.  If you see spam on here that I’ve not eradicated, please ignore it.  :)

And because I love pictures and sunflowers and I’m tired of having to post these blog issue posts, here’s a few of the sunflowers after a rain.  (Totally, unrelated, huh? :)

  4. Lovely Sunflowers.
    The water dripping so slowly off them is amazing!
    I relate to what your saying about your blog being an extension of my home.
    It very much is for me.
    I would go back and forth in my mind and just say that I would stop posting so many family pictures and write more, but I'm not a writer and photos is what I do, so that wouldn't work.
    You will make the right decision for you and your family.

  6. I am very much lost when it comes to anything technical. But I can understand not wanting to start over. Perhaps you can contact blogger and ask if they have any suggestions.

  7. I love the raindrop photo! Awesome!!
    I purchased my domain name (www.kkesslerphotography.com) a couple of years ago. I thought that by paying their "fee" at the beginning I was good to go. The next year, they asked for it again, plus more. So my advice is to really read the fine print of whomever you go with. If you can talk with someone about it, better. Make sure you are not going to be buying it every year! I use www.bludomain.com (for business) I am not sure if you can use it to blog with, but they are a great company, very helpful...
    Good luck with everything!!
