After blogging at my own domain for so long, blogging on TypePad, a hosted service, took a little bit of getting used to. I'm all settled in now, but to complete everything, I bought a bunch of domain names that I can't believe I didn't have already - kmcgivney.com, .net, and .org, which redirect here, and kathleenmcgivney.com, .net. and .org, which don't yet, because I might put a photography portfolio up there. Don't hold your breath, though, because between designing my husband's website, putting together our wedding photo books to send to family, and doing a little prep work for some upcoming adventures, I don't have the time to do much more than redirect the URLs. Any volunteers for free website design will be happily accepted, as long as you don't use like, FrontPage or something.Part of my reasoning for doing this is that kmcgivney.com is way easier to remember than kmcgivney.typepad.com when I'm telling someone about my blog. Of course, now I'll have to change the backs of my Moo cards when I order the next batch, because they all have the TypePad address on them, but that's no big deal, since they are dirt cheap - $20 for 100 mini cards. I use them to hand out if I'm taking a photo of someone on the street, or just for non-work-related contacts - if I am hanging out with Tim Gunn, I do not need to give him an IBM business card. I'd rather give him one that shows my creative side, and that's what I get with the Moo cards. Plus, they're easy and fast to create (bonus! see: lack of time, above), good quality, and I got them very fast, considering they're coming from the UK. I also ordered some stickers and postcards with my photos on them, and I like the quality - and now have fewer excuses for not sending my mother anything in the mail. A picture on a postcard is worth a thousand words, mom!
