Subscribers and bookmarkers — address change complete

The change to my web address (URL) is complete. There’s no smoke emanating from my computer so I think it worked 😉  Again, to be safe, you may want to revise your subscription or bookmark.

A note to my blog subscribers (and bookmarkers)

February 4, 2008

This is a new blog and I’m still working out the logistics. I’m going to make a change to my web address (URL) in the next week or so. I think it’ll still work with your news reader, but I’m not sure, so it’ll be best if you revise your subscription to my new URL (or if you’ve bookmarked the site, revise the bookmark). I’ll do another post when it’s complete.

In geek terms, I’m signing up for domain mapping with my blog host, WordPress. Domain mapping will drop the “wordpress” from my URL and officially change my URL to surviveanukeattack.com, from surviveanukeattack.wordpress.com. My blog has always been reachable by just navigating to surviveanukeattack.com because I use domain forwarding from my domain registrar (GoDaddy), which redirects traffic to surviveanukeattack.wordpress.com. But domain mapping makes it so the URL will never change again, which would happen every time I switched to a new blog host. Better to change it now than later.
