The Activist is going dotcom!

Greetings from New York! It is very hot in here and I do not like their subways one bit! Okay on to other things, I have being thinking (and I should consult Free Flowing Florida on this) that it will be good to have "theactivist.com" blog. I think I need the domain name as well as different segments to deal with different issues that I am passionate about, working on and raising awareness of. I want to still be able to do "cats on Tuesday" series, the "interview Thursday" series all which seem to have gone into extinction at the moment. I need to rekindle these two series. I want also to have a different segment where I can talk about my daily life experience.



All these thoughts keep going back and forth in my mind at the moment because, I am taking on more responsibilities, I need to be able to blog about conflict, security and development, Gender and Development, Feminism and Women's rights, ICT4D, Climate Change and other vital development issues in African and Abroad. I trully believe it's time I took that decision of going "dotcom" or "point com" like my Malian friends would. Taking up the opportunity of having multiple pages on one's blog is hard to ignore. I also want to be able to publish materials from other activists, scholars, academians working on relevants areas of interests.



Still thinking hard about all these. What do you suggest my ever reliable blogshpere/blogsville?

lol...Congrats on that move! Though I don't want to believe you are about to beat me to it. I've been wanting to go Dot come since last year but have dragged my foot about it.
I guess I was too busy channelling funds into other things.

I think you should give it a go. It certainly adds some flavor to the online experience.

LOL@point com, who on earth says that? ...well, about the website, its not a bad idea but its if you can manage it & regularly update all your sections...so what country are you blogging from this time???
& u didnt say again about the Kenya visa for us...? holla

histreasure said...

i agree with the others..but does that mean this here blog will be gone?

Would suggest dot org as this is more of a social justice / activism blog than a commercial one. At the end of the day its not dot com dot org dot this and that its about the content you have the time to write.

anyway talk soon

good move to make.

If you come to Maryland, DC or Virginia give us a shout!

go for it
my sister started out with blogspot and when her readership grew and she started writing more she moved to sicklecellwarrior.com

the downside is that from a technical standpoint you might have to do alot of things that usually where done for you in blogger for yourself

but yeah
if you have a techie in your corner

go for it

Like Afronuts, I have been foot dragging. I am looking for a good web host in Naija!

Well done!

go for it, but you can still have a dot com or @point com (lol @ that) on blogger, you just have to change your template to one which allows you have categories and pages.

Happy Birthday in advance abi is it now arrears.

I'm a big fan of going owning your own domain. The website http://theactivist.com is not available to be bought though. If you want to see if a particular address that you're interested in is available, visit http://whois.net and enter your address (without the .com or .net) in the first space.

My Passion, my focus, the change that I want to see in the world - is my propellent factor.
