I’ve had a website for a long time. It started out as a personal hobby site, to learn a bit about making a site and to post pics for friends and family. Then it became a way to keep everyone up to date on my life when I moved to Korea for 2 years. Now it’s for my business.
But I’m feeling like the progression has gone a bit awry. The site, being originally just for fun, was named in the same vein (pixietrix). Now with it being a business it seems off kilter & somewhat random. And, in fact, is random.
I could easily get a new domain and move the site; however, the issue is that my business is run under my name. As a side venture this is the easiest way to go in relation to tax and government issues. Sadly the domain jilliandempsey is taken by the make-up artist, so now I’m left trying to brain-storm other urls.
The dilemma is, do I just go with the dot ca and hope that people don’t mistakenly buy some make-up, or move in an entirely different direction, or just stand by my original site? I like jillianschaos as a possibility, since I make a variety of items to sell. Jewelery interests me one day, and then next I decide I feel like making purses, or baby items…. a bit chaotic, but I prefer variety.
It’s time to stop with the fractal thinking though and make a decision. A thoughtful and deliberate one. Let’s hope my next post comes with resolution.
