Today, I purchased the web domain lauralohr.com. We are planning on establishing a few business ventures to supplement my staying home with the baby. I have no idea what I am doing. That makes two things I have no clue about: 1. childrearing and 2. creating a web domain and subsequent “stuff” on the said domain. You can go there if you like now, but there is nothing to see yet.
My evil plan to compute from home may finally come to fruition. I have some things I want to dabble in and I might as well get paid for my time already spent on the internet to begin with. I would like to expand my blogging into something more substantive and publishable. I would like to do some web design. I would like to do some different blogging. I would like to “sell out”
(Selling out-From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Selling out is a common slang phrase. Broadly speaking, it refers to the compromising of one’s integrity in exchange for money or other personal gain. It is commonly associated with attempts to increase mass appeal or acceptability to mainstream society. A person who does this is labeled a sellout.)
I would like to utilize some advertizing to pay for the above projects, Allison’s college fund, and for my own college degrees that are not being used.
Google is an evil, evil search engine. Am I addicted to Google? I must look up a thousand things on Google in a day. How many different strains of viruses can a person think they have? Thanks to Google, I am supplementing the lack of care my providers have time to give me these days. Like I said before…I am not a doctor and have only the training of an EMT (yes, scary thoughts, I was once an EMT. Just think, ME, driving an ambulance to your rescue. OH, THE HUMANITY of that unsuccessful career).
Point is that we own a domain now. I think that is pretty damn fucking cool. Too bad there is nothing up there yet.
I will likely be moving this site to that domain once I figure all this shit out. Word Press? Moveable Type? What will I choose? How the hell do I use MySQL? Why is it pronounced, “my sequel server”?
