Some awesome gifts from Automattic

Really cool news!

So in case you haven’t heard, Automattic owns the new .blog TLD.



As a gift, each Automattician was able to reserve 1 .blog domain.

Naturally, I reserved And finally received it this week!! 🙂

So from now on my new domain is!!!


I LOVE it because it’s shorter and also I feel more descriptive of my site.

Want a .blog domain? Get one here. Like, now!

Fun fact: you can have multiple domains point to the same site.

So whether you type in,, or it all goes to the same place, here! 🙂
