That Time I Was Finally a "dot.com"...

It happened. Finally.

Every few years I would go on a domain-sellling site and search for "laurenofalltrades.com" and see if it was available to buy. 

And then because it wasn't available, I would visit laurenofalltrades.com and see who/what was keeping me from having my custom url. I was laurenofalltrades everywhere else. Instagram, Facebook, Gmail. YouTube. Probably more I'm not thinking of. I couldn't be laurenofalltrades on Twitter because it's too long. But no one can be laurenofalltrades on Twitter. 

I settled for ".blog." Bleh. 

But then this year, I randomly checked for laurenofalltrades.com when I was reviewing a renewal of a different domain. And then it magically. didn't say. TAKEN. 

And it wasn't ridiculously expensive. 

So welcome, FINALLY, to laurenofalltrades.com! 

laurenofalltrades.blog links and bookmarks will redirect here for the next year, and then they will stop working. Sorry in advance for that. Although, it's unlikely you will be able to read this if you don't notice your bookmarks not working until its too late. Whomp.
