For nearly 14 years, my blog’s domain name has been Viper007Bond.com. As of today though, it’s now alex.blog!
The company I work for, Automattic, purchased the rights to the new .blog TLD last year. As an employee perk, we all received a free .blog domain including the option to get a hard-to-get premium domain like this one. Very cool.
I also took this opportunity to switch from a server run by a friend of mine to the managed WordPress host Pressable, a company that Automattic is a heavy investor in. This will still allow me to run all of my custom plugins while taking away any worries about having to keep WordPress up to date or even my site online.
