After all these years, I finally have my own website, and furthermore, with a blog.
In some ways, I find it amusing–ironic, even, that I’ve never really had a website. I’m not a great web designer, but I know enough about code that I’ve served as the webmaster for a site or two. People even consider me enough of a nerd that it surprises them when I don’t have one.
Also, each time I’ve considered creating one before, I’ve run into some . . . issues setting it up. When I say “issues,” I’m referring to obsessive-compulsive tendencies to have it all done correctly. 😉 I thought about starting a blog through Blogspot or something else . . . but I didn’t want to have some company’s URL in it. I thought about using a site I frequented (like CG Society‘s blogs), but I had the same reservations.
Okay, so buy my own domain name . . . but I also ran into problems with that. All the various Jason Scott websites were already taken, and I didn’t want to come up with some cute (or not-so-cute) domain.
So, the time came–once I was on my way to getting married, I figured it was time to buy one. But that also took great mental exertion. Finally, Laura and I settled on http://www.thescottclan.org/ . . .
. . . and then it took me more than half a year to get the two of us set up on it. Again, I wanted everything right.
But now, with this beautifully-rainy/cloudy St. Valentine’s/President’s Day weekend, we are finally set up.
Last quick note: I have a very high number of internal ramblings going on inside my head at any given time, so I will be sharing them here, along with other thoughts on the topics highlighted above. But–many of them will involve a plethora of my friends and family . . . so keep an eye out for your own name. You’ve been warned.
P.S. Steinbeck had it right, didn’t he?
