Announcement: Sophisticated Dorkiness Has Moved!

Just a little bit though.  I finally made the leap and bought my own domain name.  Sophisticated Dorkiness can now be found at sophisticateddorkiness.com!

All the old links should still forward to the new domain name, but from now on please link to the new address.  And just to be sure, if you can go into your RSS reader and change the address to sophisticateddorkiness.com/feed then if I do go to self-host I think the feed will be ok.

The next big step in my personal blog improvement is self-hosting and moving from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, but I’m going to tackle that animal another day 🙂

    Wow, congrats! Your own domain name is your first step to mastering the beast we call the interweb. I hope that it all goes well for you!

    Christine: Yes, and quite the beast it is. I feel like having a better domain name makes the blog more legit, which is a little silly but oh well.

    Congratulations! I started out self-hosting. Is that why I my blog comes up really high on search engines? If so, it is well worth making the move.

    – and now I am quite curious to see what you are going to do all on your own domain 🙂

    Congratulations! I’ve been pondering a move myself, but only because I’m tired of typing out my whole address. I’m so lazy.

    Yay! I’ve updated my Google Reader. I’ll tell you, I made the move to self-hosted (wordpress.com to wordpress.org) this fall. The sooner the better, missing links and keeping everyone updated (and not losing them!) is a lot to catch up on. Well, it was for me, anyway; you clearly have a better handle on this tech stuff than I do!

    Jackie: I’m not sure yet how domain name works with search engines. I think that’s something I’ll be figuring out as I go through the process of upgrading and moving around.

    Dorte H: Me too! I’ve got all sorts of ideas for my blog, just no time to implement them 🙂

    softdrink: One of the reasons I wanted my own domain was because I’m putting the blog on my resume and having it’s own domain looks cooler than the entire wordpress address.

    Dawn: I might have to pick your brain a little bit soon! I really want to self-host, but I keep getting intimidated by the whole idea of doing it myself. I keep doing web searches for tutorials or something on how to do it, but none of the resources I can find make me feel any more confident 🙂

    Congrats on the move! I will update my blogroll!

  • Kim February 24, 2009, 8:38 am

    Jenners: Thanks!

    I think I’ve changed it to the new feed…lets hope I didn’t screw up.
