I’ve owned this site now for more than 5 years and at the time I had big aspirations and plans for the site. I wanted to educate users on how to use a computer, focusing on security and maintenance but then the focus changed. I choice the domain name because I wanted a brand name I didn’t want something specific to anything. I wanted the brand to grow and be able to use an umbrella name.
Being young and naive now I just use it to post my content that I produce on the internet and having other domains which better fit my content is going to be my biggest problem. I like http://stuschronicles.co.uk because that is what these posts are but there is something holding me back from dumping this domain, apart from the obvious of I have email addresses here it is my first domain. The one thing that hasn’t changed over the years, and it would be weird without it.
Don’t get me wrong I am not that sentimental the major factor is the email addresses as they aren’t all mine and I am not 100% sure what to do about it. I am thinking of putting a hosting package on http://stuschronicles.co.uk and move away from Tumblr a little and then adding this domain to Zoho to get the mail sent there. But is it really worth it?
Although http://stuschronicles.co.uk would be a better fit it just seems like it’s too much hassle to be sorting out for something that is just a hobby (Especially after my outage on Tumblr for more details go here). Do domains matter to you? Would you change?
