I Heart Domain Names

I can remember when I purchased my first domain name.  It felt a little foolish at the time (and still does, to be completely honest), but it was still neat to purchase kylegilbert.com.  I’ve used it in different ways over the years, but I’ve always been glad I made the purchase when I did.

For several months lately, I’ve considered purchasing a particular available domain name.  I’m happy to say the pondering is over.  I’m now the proud owner of kyle.fm.

My plan for now is to use it as a shortcut url to this blog, but I’ve also installed YOURLS on this domain so I can use is as my own url shortener (like bit.ly) for posts on Twitter and Facebook.

PS – There’s no significance to the .fm extension other than I thought it was the coolest sounding option available. :)
