Today I started building a website. Since I’ve had this blog I’ve not really taken much stock into what it looks like, or how much I can customise it or whatever, I’ve just typed in every day, clicked the ‘new post’ button and then babbled in the text box that appears for 500 or so words.

I changed the theme once, I think. And it does the job that I need it to do. Basically it’s just a place to store my diary that is easily sharable for the people who want to read it. But I’m going to try to start being more official with it. I want it to be a website, not just a blog. I purchased a new domain name, as well. I’m going to go through the process of creating the website and then find a way to install this blog within the site. I know that it can be done, I just don’t have a clue how.

To be honest, the main reason that I bought a new domain was because I liked the idea of having a personalised email address. I mean, I’ve had this email address since I was eleven, and it’s so long to type, and it always needs spelling out over the phone. Fortunately, eleven year old me had the foresight not to choose “” or “” as my email address, so I’ve never had to change it when I’m trying to represent myself professionally for work, or study. But idk, I just like the idea of having a personal, email, which required a new domain. And if I’ve got the domain then I may as well do something with it, right?

So I’m going to design a website. I know that I’ll eventually be able to host this blog on there. I don’t know what else I will do with it. Or rather, what else I want to do on it. I feel restricted within this blog, because it’s just a daily post about what I did today. And that’s fine, because that’s the point in it. But I want to be able to do other stuff as well. Like, I’m sitting on a football article that I wrote, and want to share, but I have no where else to put it because I want to keep that kind of thing off of this blog. It could go on my new site no problems, in fact, I could have a whole bespoke section for sports. Or film. Or travel. Or photography.

There’s loads of options.

The benefit I have, too, is that I work at a company that literally provides these kind of website hosting/website building services. I guess that’s what has spurred my interest in building a new website.

I don’t know how a migration to a new website/platform would affect my current blog situation. I assume that I’d just be able to continue blogging from here, and that would load the posts onto the website. I don’t know though.

Until tomorrow, I should probably ask.
