About 3 years ago I did something a bit crazy, I moved all my content from geeeek.com over to JohnHawkinsUnrated.com. The old domain just didn’t feel like home to me anymore. During the past few years I’ve built up a bit of an audience, so making the switch again is a little bit crazy since I have some pretty decent search engine rankings on JHU. But here we are, starting all over again back at square one! Welcome to VegasGeek.com!
VegasGeek has been my online persona for the better part of 8 years. The domain name was already taken so I had to go with another option. Over the past 5 years or so I have made several attempts to purchase the domain as it switched hands 2 or 3 times. Finally, a few months back, I was able to get my hands on it and I can tell you right now, I’m not letting go of it any time soon! Finally, a domain that FEELS like home!
Switching all your content from one domain to another is no small process and not without it’s share of obstacles. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed a bit of spam I sent out yesterday to the tune of 125 tweets in about 2 minutes before Twitter put me on time out. I had exported the content from JHU and forgot to turn off my AutoTweet plugin for new posts on the new site. So as I imported 500+ blog posts, well, you see where I’m going. If you caught the full brunt of my twitter-splosion, sorry about that!
If you were already awesome enough to be following my RSS feed for JHU, you’ll need to switch it over to the new RSS feed. I also created a new FaceBook page where I’ll hook up the auto-post if that’s the way you are most used to finding my posts.
Oh, I should also mention that I’ve moved the photo-blog that was taking up residence at VegasGeek.com for as short time over to http://micro.vegasgeek.com/. This is a project I’m really enjoying. I take the photos and write the entire blog post from the iPhone. It’s kinda fun. That site has it’s own RSS feed if you’d like to check it out, you can follow it here.
Thanks for sticking with me as I bounce around the interwebs a bit. This should be the last time for quite a while.
