I’m a dreamer. I have big expectations.
I get these thoughts in my head and think I can do something. And then I don’t.
Jon Bon Jovi summed it up neatly for me in a song called Bang A Drum, that was written and performed for the Young Guns II soundtrack.
I called upon my brother
Just the other day
He said, “John I’m gonna
Die if I don’t start to live again”
I work each day and night like clockwork
Just tryin’ to make ends meet
I could kick this bad world’s ass
If I could just get on my feet
Yup, that’s me in a nutshell.
I could kick this bad world’s ass if I could just get on my feet.
I have lots of ideas and no idea how to make them come to fruition.
This is where you come in. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my year and a half of blogging, it’s that my blogging family will help. All you have to do is ask.
In my Be The Dog post, I indicated I wanted to take this blog to the next level. Well that level is coming up and pretty darn fast too.
I’m planning on moving away from the free wordpress and going self-hosted.
I know, it’s scary.
Here’s the dilemma. http://www.jodistone.com is taken.
I was shocked too.
Go figure. Some chick named Jodi Stone wrote a children’s book about a ….lady bug.
No, it certainly was not me! How could you even think that? Me write a book about bugs!
I admit, when I was a child I loved lady bugs, until I saw a house that thousands of them on the ceiling and did you know they bite? Yeah, I didn’t either.
No, I’m not including the link to her site, but I won’t be mad at you if you go and look. Just come back here, ok? I still have a problem.
So this blog is http://www.jodistone.wordpress.com, but what happens when I go to self-hosting? Isn’t the blog name supposed to just add a .com to it?
In order to take the next step I need to know what’s going to happen to my blog name. Do any of you know? Should I just call the hosting company and run it by them? Should I change the blog name?
Any thoughts you have would be greatly appreciated.
