I put this under the personal category but it really kind of it isn’t. No, this is just a quick little update to make my few steady readers aware that I now have a custom URL. That might not mean a lot to some of you and that’s okay, but it means a fair bit to me.
Before when you accessed my site you did it through tsgproductions.wordpress.com. That was actually an old blog I created years and years and years ago and never did much with. It was intended as an umbrella site for all the stuff I made; movie review, game review and the occasional Let’s Play. It never really materialized as I fell out of love with Youtube during a particularly low time in my life an I never got back around to pick it up.
When I returned to writing on my blog, oh, two years ago now or something, I simply picked the old one I had already created and refurbished it, as it were. To fit my new needs. I never really intended for this to be anything but a quick outlet for me to write. But recently I’ve been thinking the site is worth more of my attention and it was perhaps time to invest a little bit more in it. The price wasn’t terribly high and it felt like the most natural step to take. One could say I kicked it up a notch on the “taking it seriously” scale.
So from now on my URL is thatswedishguyscorner.com. I’ll be honest, it was my second choice as the first was taken but that’s okay, although a bit long it’s pretty much just my blog title so it fits.
What does this mean for you, the reader? Well, not much, really. If you were already subscribed then you’ll receive the updates just as normal. The old link still works, it simply redirects you to my new URL and as far as I know, all old links still work as well if you have them bookmarked somewhere. So for you, the biggest difference is merely cosmetic.
For me, however, it’s cosmetic and also a chance to become slightly bigger in terms of exposure. Unique URLs show up higher in Google search results if your site is indexed properly and people in general take you more seriously.
I’ve found that I enjoy this writing more than I thought I would and though I’ve ended up in areas I didn’t expect, reviewing and critiquing HOPA, it’s none the less been a fun journey so far and I hope it’ll be even more fun down the line.
Look forward to an expanded range of topics over the next few months as I continue celebrating all things nerdy.
