After much searching and consideration for a domain name with which our kids' friends can't make fun of our kids, we've arrived at a new domain name for our family. We decided to use the new .me extension as a representation of a personal domain. We thought about using .us, which would sound great for a "family" domain, yadayada.us, but .us stands for United States not "us", so we chose the more semantic .me for our family. Did any of that make sense? If you're not very "techy", probably not, but don't fret, in the next paragraph I will reveal our new domain.
Our new domain name is thehallway.me. It represents the Way of the Hall, which includes peace, love, and lots of things technical, but also has a nice PUN about a hallway, with which we could go in a few different directions. The .me extension gives our domain name a personal touch. Once we setup our email accounts, we'll have cassie, matt, dante, and xavian @thehallway.me in case anybody was wondering. This will allow us to monitor our childrens' email usage within the bounds of parenting, which includes keeping them out of trouble! Of course, once they figure out yahoo mail and google mail, our plan will have to be adjusted.
So, what happens to the matthalldesign.com domain name. I'll keep it and use it for business related work if I ever get around to doing more of that. For now, I'll make a useless, highly graphical splash page and park it. This will replace my current useless, highly graphical website for matthalldesign. I'll also make a useless, highly graphical website for thehallway.me.
In a few months, visit http://www.thehallway.me and see what is cooking in... The Hallway!
This hospital room is apparently starting to wear on me.
