Thoughtless Thursday: Big Deal Thursday

Yesterday I jumped back into blogging (head first, no less) after a four month hiatus (if you'd like to know what Olivia and I were doing during that time please check out the post and I promise it will get you all caught up).

So, anyways, back to the whole jumping back in head first... I had read many months back that having a blog that used a URL with wordpress/blogspot/etc at the end of it was kind of cheesy, it went on to say that not paying for your own domain name detracted from the legit-ness of your blog. I found that to be offensive! My blog URL ends in .blogspot! And my blog is awesome... even though I have, like, 3 people reading it.-- I had thought, insulted.

But yesterday I decided one way I could keep myself writing and from abandoning my blog again was by investing money (not just my very limited free time) into it. If I paid money for some aspect of it I figure that I'm less apt to make excuses for why I'm not writing. So I looked into how I could get a domain name. And I bought one. 

I am now the proud owner of www.oliviashuman.com-- and I'm really quite excited! While I don't think this is a step that will make or break my blog (who knows, I could be very wrong) I am pretty pumped about this big step/decision I made for my blog, my writing, and my brand. I know I haven't been so good about any of those things lately but I want to change that.... starting...now. 

Olivia is also very excited about this next big step. As you can clearly see:
