Hey guys. I have a registered domain I use for various purposes. You may have seen it in links like: http://www.hi-izuru.org/forum/ where I uploaded a live copy of the leaked Skeptical Science forum. The domain, (hi-izuru.org) isn’t very different from this site’s domain (hiizuru.wordpress.com), but it is one I pay for and manage myself. That means I have far more control over it than I can have when using a site through WordPress.
That increased control means I can customize the site’s appearance and functionality far more than I currently can. I like that. I also like the idea of only having to manage one domain. As such, I am currently in the process of trying to move this blog to the other domain.
I don’t know if this will work out as my previous attempt failed spectacularly, but the transfer seems to be working better this time. If you don’t mind, would you go over to the new site and see if it works? You can find it here:
Also, if you have any ideas for how to change the blog to make it make it better, I’d love to hear them. I am no longer limited to the pre-installed WordPress themes so I can go with any theme we might want (or even make changes to themes to create something entirely new). It’d even be possible to make any other features one might want on a web page, even ones not related to blogging. It’s just a matter of deciding what to do and sitting down and doing it.
That is, if the site works. For all I know it may blow up in half an hour.
