Holy crap. I can’t believe all the money I’m spending. :o

You see, I got the editor. So the logical thing to do is to spend even MORE money, right??

So now I’m transferring my little domain with my blog on it to a fully functional hosted web site. I’m currently looking at another browser window that tells me “Your setup is complete! We’ll email you when your account is ready. … Typical wait time – 30 Min. (In some cases, this may take up to 24 hours.)”

Yep, I just bought the Ultimate hosting package on GoDaddy for 4 years. Unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth, 1000 email accounts (like I’ll EVER use that!), unlimited MySQL Databases, and a free SSL Certificate (for use in e-commerce). All of that, plus privacy registration for just under $400.

I guess I’m pretty much set for podcasting, book sales, or whatever else I might want to do in the future.

I just hope I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew. :?

Damn it’s great to have a supportive wife, though.

She’s the one that got me off my hump and got me to look at this as if I were starting up a small business. I’m probably going to end up dropping about $2k on this little startup, and there are no guarantees that I’ll see any profit on it for a while to come. But I’m committed now. I are a bizniz now. Once I got that through my thick skull, the whole thing began to make more sense. It’s a bit frightening, but it’s also a bit of thrill.

Guess this is Sm1ley the Gambler, coming into being. Wish me luck folks, I think I’m gonna need it. :lol:

  1. Well crap!

    “Domain Transfer Failed – Domain Is Too New”. Evidently you can’t transfer a domain unless it has been active for at least 60 days. I just bought that domain name about a month ago.

    (sigh)

  2. Cue the obligatory quote – ‘ What you can do, or dream you can do, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.’

    You’ll do fine. Just keep going like you’re going and it will work out.
