One of the biggest tests I see in every individual fight is his decision making. There’s this flaming need within us to abstain from committing an error regarding the matter of picking one over the other. They key is to know when a decision truly matters. I, too, have had a lot of restless nights over the “yes or no and this or that” of life. Choosing the right domain name is one of the most crucial decision making a blogger can encounter.
If you’re going to read back in my first few months of blogging, you will discover that I frequently changed my blog name and some of my post about how I was so undecided of what to choose was also deleted. I think, I already had 5 different blog names created. But today I’m glad to announce that I already have my own registered domain name. Yehey!
In my one year (active) experience as a blogger I never thought that I need to buy my own domain name. Until I realized that there were many opportunities escaped on my hands because I only have a free domain name under blogspot. Because of that, step by step I planned and made a decision to buy my own domain.
Of course, for a beginner like me it’s not too easy to take a step without knowing where you gonna go. When struggling with a decision, reaching out to mentors and trusted advisors will help a lot. Having a solid, success-oriented group of trusted advisors like a group of expert pinoy bloggers, just one question away will makes your decision making about blogging will be much easier.
So I started asking my blogging friends on how to and how much to acquire a domain name. Fortunately, they were a lot of them helped and guided me with these steps. My previous blog name The Imperishable Beauty is a little bit long, so there were 2 weeks of research happened before I finally came up with my short and unique blog URL rizanoia.com. Oh, bythe way Riza is obviously my first name and -noia is a suffix word which means mind. To sum up it all, rizanoia.com is a personal blog about my thoughts on travel and lifestyle. Well, I hope you understand my point *laughs*.
Well not everything is good. The bad side of acquiring a new domain is that my social share counts were all back to zero. Aside from that, I also need to update all of my social accounts. Ginusto ko to eh. So I need to boost up again my blogging activities the way I did before.
What can you say about my own domain name? I hope you like it. I won’t promise that I will blog daily starting from now. But as soon as I came back to blogging as a full time, promise kakaririn ko na.
And before I end this post, I want to share this quote with you,
Money likes speed and good things come to those who harness the power of decision making. Anything is possible. Everything is waiting for you.Joy Chudacoff
