A brand new domain!

I've been meaning to buy a domain for this blog since I've started it, but I've been putting it off primarily because I'm tinatamad. There, I said it. Actually before, I was hiding behind the reason that domains are expensive, but when I saw that somebody already bought bisikleta.com.ph, I knew I had to immediately pull out my credit card and buy this one before someone else beats me to it.

So welcome to www.bisikleta.ph!

What now? With the new domain, do I have to take this blogging thing seriously? Well, not too serious that I blog just because I need to have content. That definitely won't happen. It's more of pushing myself to get off the couch and discover places with my bike together with you. It's a new year, anyway.

So strap on the helmet and get ready for adventure.

    ey, i'm thinking of buying a domain myself... would appreciate some tips :)

  4. Roy,

    Here are some of my tips:

    1. .PH domains are expensive. They cost $35 a year. Get the .COM, .ORG and .NET if they're available. Those cost roughly $10 a year each.

    2. Get a short domain versus a longer one so that it's easier to remember and to market. For example, if your content is on mountain biking, try to get www.mountainbiking.com rather than www.mountainbikinginthephilippines.com
