I’ve gone .com!

This blog will be shutting down in a few days. To be replaced by calumhenderson.com!

There are a number of reasons that I will be doing this, here are some stated below

  • I have more freedom with code on the site, and as I am hosting it myself, I can add whatever I want. (e.g. I can now put in videos from sites other than youtube, and I can easily embed buttons at the bottom of each post to share on social media sites.
  • It gets respect from people online, and as I am interested in being online, this factors in.
  • It allows me to create other websites and host them, I have been considering doing some other small websites.
  • It’s better for search engines.
  • I really wanted to.

It’s been fun blogging here at wordpress.com, but I’m looking forward to the new opportunities created by this move.

The site will launch Feb 2, 2010. The time until then will be used to construct the site.

Thanks to everyone who has read this blog, and I look forward to seeing you over at calumhenderson.com

    Hey Cal – good move.

    Will you still be using wordpress to host the blog though?

    Hey Elmo,

    I’m going to be using bluehost.com to host. They have pretty good prices ($7 per month for unlimited hosting!) and wordpress.com hosting doesn’t allow the freedom that self-hosting does.

    Hope that answers your question.

    (go the Gypsies!)
