.blog the new domain for daveismyname

Today I’ve finally secured the domain extensions I’ve been after since it was first announced over 2 years ago. All was going well for getting a .blog last year until it was announced the .blog extension was bought for by at the time unknown buyer! it seemed that was it for getting a .blog extension. It turns out Automattic the company behind Wordpress were the ones who bought the rights to .blog

A few months ago they announced public registration for .blog domains would be open to the general public from November. 

As you can imagine I was extremely happy with the news! I immediately pre-ordered the extension was a perfect fit for my blog. I used to have a portfolio showcasing my work as well as having a blog and the usual information pages. I don’t do freelance work (I’ve got enough on with my job) so I restructured my site a few years ago to be a blog primarily.

Today I’ve switched over from .com to .blog fully everything that was on is now on I could not be happier that I’ve got a .blog extension for me it’s perfect, much better then or a .com much more fitting to what it’s actually about.

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
