Here we have the second post of the day – very unusual for me. Sometimes two posts a quarter is all I manage.
My previous post mentioned that, having upgraded from a free WordPress plan, I had been able to remove pesky adverts.
Another feature you get with a personal plan is the ability to customise the domain name. You may recall that the original domain name was kevinthephotographer.wordpress.com; I had intended to simplify this slightly to kevinthephotographer.com, but it turned out that kevinthephotographer.com is already registered by someone else (although they don’t seem to be using it).
I could get kevinthephotographer.org, without an additional charge. So I registered that one but also noted that for an additional fee I could register a .blog domain – which seems kind of appropriate.
I was really surprised to find that filmphotography.blog was available, and since it seems to be handy and straightforward name for a blog about film photography, I claimed the name after thinking about if for at least a couple of minutes.
It seems strange to me that an arcane name like kevinthephotographer.com is already registered – even though it’s presumably only of interest to photographers called Kevin – whilst something of broader appeal (at least to film photographers of any name) hadn’t been snapped up.
So now this blog is officially called FilmPhotography.Blog.
But as a sentimental aside, the header notes that it is the blog previously known as kevinthephotographer.
Existing readers need have no fear, as a bookmark or typed address of kevinthephotographer.wordpress.com will redirect you to filmphotography.com
