I Found the Missing D!

Those who are regular readers of mine may have noticed that I make a real effort to keep my sentences within the parameters of proper grammar. I can only blame the unholy influence of Eats, Shoots & Leaves written by Lynne Truss. That book’s corrupting influence upon me cannot be measured.

At any rate, when I began thinking about this blog and registered with WordPress, in a fit of impulse buying I decided to take up WordPress’ offer of my very own .com domain name for $18. However, the only domain option that was available that fit my chosen title was One ‘d’ in the middle.

It’s always looked silly to me.

So I’m very happy now to announce that I have finally discovered the displaced ‘d’ in my domain designation and will now be distinguished with a double ‘d’ at:

So I’m throwing back into the lake for the next lucky Internet fisher to take up. Thanks, you’ve been a great domain but it’s time for me to move on.

By the way, for my international readers who are wondering what a .ca domain name is, that’s the top-level domain for Canada. You can find out more about the .ca here. Interestingly, the .ca is one of the most trusted top-level domains currently available on the Internet.

The old URL will continue to function for the next little while. If you’re linking to my blog, I strongly encourage you to revise your links with the updated domain.

    I’m glad you got your D 🙂

    • Thanks! It is kind of cool to have my own little slice of the Internet.
