Last Friday NIght


Last Friday night

Yeah we danced on tabletops

And we took too many shots
Think we kissed but I forgot


Oh wait, that was Katy Perry. What did I really do last Friday night? 

Well, I bought a domain name. Yay me! I was so psyched that I had finally ponied up, dished out the cash and had my very own domain name. I read all the "how to"s and had e-mailed with Nathan who has some awesome advice on setting it up with my blogger account.

And then the...stuff... hit the fan. While I was (unsuccessfully) messing around with CNAME and redirects, Fynn decided she was sick and not going to sleep. She had had red cheeks earlier, but no fever, so I figured she was fine. Except not. She was all stuffed up and kept waking herself up every time she fell asleep. 

So I was frustrated about the blog not working, and Fynn kept waking up, and I was just plain annoyed. Drew went out and bought a vapor rub nightlight thingy that was supposed to help congestion and some saline.

As for the blog, well when I finally thought it was all figured out and ready to go, I went to the new site... and nothing. So I tried the old URL, and it was gone! I panicked thinking that I had deleted my whole blog or messed something up completely, but I was quickly able to revert it back to the old one so I could play with it some more. 

After about 2 more hours of playing (mixed in with Fynn getting up twice more) I finally figured out what I was doing wrong, fixed it, and voila! The blog now published to my new domain (did you notice it up there?) AND the old site redirects here.

Boom. 

While the old site, www.needmyownshow.blogspot.com will still work, it will redirect you to the new URL; www.myshowblog.com
