I’ve been having so much fun with this blogging – both the writing and learning WordPress – that I decided to buy my own domain name and switch over to WordPress.org so I can get more creative with the design. I’m taking an online WordPress course this summer, and I have so much to learn. Can’t wait to dive in!
Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, as it turns out) my blog’s .com name was snatched up by some dude in Illinois a few weeks after I opened my WordPress account. What he plans to do with fengschwa.com (and .org and .net and .info) I have no idea, but he can have it. The name always gave me a chuckle, but my sense of humor is obviously not universal. When I’d finally get up the gumption to share my blog with someone, the news was usually met with a wrinkled brow and questioning eyes. Feng what? I’d quickly have to explain the Feng Schwa play on words… and always felt a smudge of embarrassment. Not the most resounding endorsement of my own creation!
So I spent the first weekend of my summer vacation with a thesaurus, pen, paper, and some major brainstorming sessions. In the end I decided to change the name to Profoundly Ordinary, a phrase I used in my very first entry. When I think of the purpose and of this blog, it’s simply to write about my profoundly ordinary life. Sometimes it leans a bit more toward the profound, other days are plain old ordinary. But honestly, I’d like to capture it all.
It looks like I have successfully transferred everything to my sparkly new domain: profoundlyordinary.com. Welcome!
