New Blog Location – Personal Domain!

Yeah, I went ahead and bought the domain name “vankomen.me” (I’d link to that, but there’s nothing there just yet). I think that this will serve my needs much better, as I’ll be able to create a fantastic, professional-looking theme just for my own site and blog. Not to mention I’ll be able to play around with some fantastic plugins and other modifications that can make this blog even better. If you really care, head inside for some more information about what I will probably do with this site.

So, since I have a domain name and some serious hosting, I’ll probably get around to posting here in the blog more often. I’ll probably share a lot more of my thoughts about things that I come across, as I’ll actually be compelled to do so more often. I’ll make my own theme for the blog that showcases some of the awesome web design things I’ve learned and to show off my abilities as a freelance developer and designer.

I will probably get around to making a “resume” here on the site as well, that will show off the things I’ve done, where I’ve worked, and dozens of other things that I’ve been able to pull off. I will also change the name of the site, unless I feel that this could really be more of a personal blog. I haven’t decided. If you have some ideas for me, feel free to let me know in the comments below.

I’ll probably be changing the comment system to Disqus as well, since they pretty much know how to make comments work with some very powerful tools. I’ll add some Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ integration as well, along with probably some other means of sharing stuff that I post.

These are just some ideas that have been running though my head and will probably eventually happen, should I find the time. If you are interested in me building a website for you, shoot me an email at percussivedave[at]gmail[dot]com. We can talk about what you want, and I’ll let you know how much I’d like out of it.

So yeah… That’s pretty much it. Enjoy my blog.

    It’s not as fancy as the one you migrated it from, but I suppose that’ll come with time.

      Yeah, I know. The theme from the last blog was pretty awesome. However, I’m building my own theme for the site that will look professional and stuffs.

          You’ll have to wait until I roll them out. 😉

      Well, I got the theme back! I am still working on the personal one that I mentioned though.
