I've been debating this for a few weeks now, but I think I'm about to change my main domain to www.beattie.info and move my weblog to russ.beattie.info. What do you think? Please consider this post a "confirmation" post.
The benefits of moving to the russ.beattie.info url first is that it's a quite bit shorter than my current monstrousity of www.russellbeattie.com/notebook and also allows me to create subdomains for Alex. Plus my email of email@example.com is a bit redundant... firstname.lastname@example.org is so much cleaner, no? (No worries about people accidentally putting in beattie.com because I bought a 10 year lease on email@example.com from NetIdentity like three years ago.) And thirdly 74.3% of the people in the world don't realize that Russell has two s's and two l's . (Count them). I don't know how many times I've told someone to check my site for one thing or another, and after they type my URL incorrectly a few times, just revert to going to Google to look me up.
You tell me: What do you like: russellbeattie.com or russ.beattie.info ?
