I’ve been contemplating the name of this site for a while now. While I still like the name – sort of – the hypen in the middle drives me insane. It’s just bad form. I’ve been trying to get foreverdigital.net or even foreverdigital.com for years now but to no avail. I’d love to have a simple domain that has no real connotation to the title, something that I don’t feel obligated to include tech stuff or any other form of geekery (although I probably still would). All the same, I would love to have some sort of specific purpose to this site other than just writing on whims, or even out of guilt all the time.
I’ve lived at this domain for nearly 5 years now. I’ve grown attached to it. It’s become a part of me. A lot’s happened in those 4 years, and f-d has always been here to help me record it. I know I could do that at any site, but I guess it’s the fact that no matter how much as changed, how many times I’ve moved, or whatever else has gone on in my life, f-d has remained a constant. I don’t know if I’m ready to part with that just yet.
At the same time, I feel like I’m ready to move on – to archive my posts from 2002 somewhere that I won’t be embarrased by my outbursts of “omg skool wuz so much fun 2day! =o) ugh but my homework is so stoopid” (Yes, I actually have phrases like that… check for yourself). While they’re great to read through and reminisce about every once in a while, I think it’s time I separated myself from them and started fresh. No one wants to read the ramblings of a 15 year old’s quest to find a summer job, or win a volleyball game, or the random inside jokes I included that I don’t even understand anymore.
I have jennvargas.com and even jennifervargas.com registered, but I don’t really think I want to use those for a blog. Redirect? Maybe. But as the primary destination? As “Jenn’s Blog at JennVargas.com”? That’s not really my style.
So what do I call this thing? In the words of Number 5: “neeed innpuuuttt”.
