Dot com Baby!

UPDATE: I accidentally deleted the original to this post and all of its comments :( . Thank God I had it open on another tab so I just copy pasted it and reposted. So if you are reading this twice, Sorry! Also, Bloglovin transferred the followers from the last URL to this one, so if you see a ton of my posts appear on your Bloglovin I apologize for that also.

Just kidding! 

I may not have arrived but what I did do was suck it up and buy a domain for this here blog! I bought it on Thursday and set it up myself which is a small miracle. I'm techy but boy I didn't know what I was doing. In case your are wondering I went with Bluehost for the name and hosting, only because I saw great reviews online. Will keep you posted on how that works out. It's set it to redirect my old blog's link (thekaytimes.blogspot.com) to this new link (thekaytimes.com), so even if you use the old address, it will still work. 

If I'm honest, up until the very moment I plugged in my CC digits I wasn't even sure I wanted or needed to buy it. So much can be said on the topic of whether a blog needs a domain but ultimately, I decided I wanted one.
Just dropped in to inform the peeps of the change. If you are having problems seeing the blog or redirecting or anything please let me know.

Have a great weekend guys :)

  2. Congrats! It's a big blog step and feels so good, doesn't it! I went with Bluehost as well and am so-so on if I really like them or not.

  4. Buying a domain name is a HUGE deal in the blog world! It took me a while to finally get a domain name because a) I'm cheap and b) I was afraid of the commitment. It's actually helped my blog grow a lot since "frikkenduckie.com" is so much more appealing than "frikkenduckie.blogspot.com" and it's also much easier for people to remember.

    Congratulations, girlie, you're too legit to quit now!
