Moving to a new domain name

It's almost two years since I started this blog, and I feel that it's time to move forward and move to my own domain name and hosting. I just bought (the .com is taken, although not in use, and the current owner doesn't want to sell it :( ). I am excited about the move, as it means I'll be able to use Wordpress with a bunch of plug-ins which I like. Nothing against blogger/blogspot - I think it's a wonderful free platform and highly recommend it to anyone seeking a free blogging service.

Lots to post about, but I prefer to wait till we're at the new place. Hopefully will be up and running within a few days! I'll still post here every now and again to refer folks to the new place. Hope to see everyone there!

So does the move mean that you're going to post more often? ;)

Yesssssss! Well, ummmm, yes, I mean to post more often, we'll see what life has to say about it, I guess! Installing Wordpress on the new domain as we speak!

I agree. Although I’m a committed Blogger/Blogspot blogger, I’ve noticed that the slickest and best looking blogs tend to be Wordpress, either COM or ORG. If/when my blogs become a commercial proposition I’ll also be looking at migrating.

Are you going to be documenting/blogging about your experiences with Wordpress?

I'm using Wordpress across several domains, with other blogs of mine (not about Israel), so no learning curve for me. In that respect, my experience with switching over to WP is probably not the norm.

Do join me at the new site, and if you have any questions about WP whatsoever, I'll be happy to try and engage them.
