I’ve been giving some thought to whether or not to register a domain name for my chosen pen name. I’m not sure if it’s way too early to think about this or not. I keep seeing articles encouraging it, even if you don’t plan to do anything with it immediately. I don’t think I’m in imminent danger of losing the name to someone else, but you never can tell.
Since I have finally decided on a pen name to use (should the day ever come…) I’m thinking maybe I should just go ahead and at least get the .com address, if not the .org, and .net as well. I’m still debating about Twitter. I don’t think there’s much rush, the name I’ve chosen is not common (although not outlandish either). Eventually I expect I’ll want to have a site without “wordpress” in the title but I don’t plan to abandon my blogs here. WordPress.org even has suggestions for hosting companies. There are scads of them out there, I guess the thing to do is try one for awhile and see how it goes. But, that’s getting way ahead. For now I should probably just worry about getting the domain name(s) registered.
And here’s my ‘weather report.’ The weather is finally cooling down, and the night air tonight seems downright chilly at 68F. Geese are arriving from the north for the winter, coming in noisy flocks over my house and backyard. I even have some bats swooping around the backyard, looks like a pair of them. With my vampire obsession I sort of wonder if they’re anyone I know…
I hope they find all the bugs their little hearts desire. At not even 9:00 p.m., civil twilight, it’s already growing quite dark. The wheel turns. Two months past Midsummer, and I can sense fall. The trees can too, some of the leaves are already turning. After the heat we’ve had over the last two weeks, I’m looking forward to some rain and cool days.
