More specifically, let me explain why this casual blog is different from other blogs (casual or not). First, the domain is mine (flyingsalmon.net). Then all the modules and underlying techs and supporting files are hosted on my own site (developed by me with a manual meat-grinder) on the same domain. Finally, the blog platform which does the rest of the magic (WordPress) is hosted on the site…I just duct-taped them together.
By the way, you may be wondering why “Flying Salmon” as domain name? Hint: Visit Pike Place Farmer’s Market when you’re in Seattle…you’ll see them flying and is a signature of the fishing heritage of the market.
P.S. If you need help with blogging set up (with or without having your domain), I can help you but will require a nominal fee for my time+effort. Same goes with any Internet-related assistance such as having your internet presence, obtaining and configuring domains, design, search optimization for your site, etc. etc. If you're interested, use the Contact link to discuss. Thanks.
