Much like the Apple Universe Podcast re-launch resulted in, Daniel’s Blog will be underoing many fun changes. You are probably reading this from either the new site, or the old one. When I mean new, I mean at 1:00 AM PST, I was up with Michael Yurechko setting up WordPress (Thanks Michael!). After about 5 minutes of Yurechko magic, the site was up and running under a new domain and hosting!
In case you didn’t notice, I am still on the amazing WordPress platform, just using the self-hosted version (currently up to version 2.3.3). I have been wanting to make the switch for a very long time, and I had the chance to get 2 more domains with my 1and1 Package for Apple Universe.
The main reasoning behind the getting the domain name is quite simple. Raise your hand if you can spell “Brusilovsky” without having read it here. Mostly, only my really close friends know how to spell my last name (and even sometimes my editor spells it wrong, typing “@dbrusilovksy” in Twitter replies), and cutting down the number of letters to type was the best idea I could think of. In the end, danielbru.com fit the bill. “Bru” is certainly a lot easier to type regularly than Brusilovsky.
Additionally, I get more power! My WordPress.com sub-domain has been in service for over one year, and alas, it’s time to up the ante. On a self-hosted installation, I get to customize my web site as much as I want – I can upload my own themes and plug-ins, giving me more options to make your experience better.
If you are curious, the theme that I have up as of press time is GlossyBlue from NDesign-Studio. Its a great theme, and I’ll probably stay with it for a while.
On one last note, I have a new email address for this blog. If you would like to contact me regarding this blog, being on a podcast, starting a podcast together, or even just to say hello, drop a line either through the Contact Page or email me directly.
Thanks for the support,
