So, I need to upgrade the blog soon, because I am running out of disk storage space (can you believe it? It feels like yesterday she was just a wee babe… <sniff>) and I decided it made sense to register my own domain name at the same time; easier than all that .wordpress.com jazz. Naturally, because this is the way that my life goes, www.localkitchen.com is taken. Not that it’s a website or anything; someone just has the domain name, and though I love the blog dearly, I am not prepared to shell out hundreds of bucks simply to get the best domain name. (Interestingly, local-kitchen.com, thelocalkitchen.com and all versions of kaela.xxx are also taken. Do I know my branding or do I know my branding?).
So a question for you, my loyal readers: if I register my own domain, which of the below choices do you like best?
- A localkitchen.net
- B localkitchen.us
- C localkitchen.org
- D alocalkitchen.com
- E localkitchenblog.com
And for amusement factor, these are some of the funnier “alternatives” suggested by the domain search engine:
I think “localgalley” cracks me up the most, because I can only envision me dressed up as a pirate and trying to cook in the galley of an ancient wooden boat ship schooner. Avast, me hearties, and avail yerself o’ me toothsome local grub!
So, what shall it be me hearties? Please place your votes in the comments below. (I’m just warming you up for the real vote coming up in a few weeks. But of course, I think my choices are better….)
