Additional evidence that my sister-in-law is all sorts of awesome

Did you notice anything new when you visited this blog yesterday or today? If not, may I suggest glancing up at the URL?

Yep, this blog is now, officially, thegaygamer.com--thanks to my awesome sister-in-law, Jan. (Those of you who have been coming here for a while may recall that she made the snazzy, sparkly header image that has greeted anyone who has visited this site since last summer.)



Here's how it came about: Jan recently asked me why I didn't have my own domain. I responded by saying that thegaygamer.com wasn't available. (I swear, the last time I looked--and I've looked semi-regularly since I started the blog in early 2007--it was owned by someone else!) She did some digging, discovered that it was, in fact, available, and promptly bought for me as an early (very early) birthday present. She also did all the behind-the-scenes wizardry that allows the blog to show up at both thegaygamer. blogspot.com and thegaygamer.com.

Isn't that awesome?

Again, that's so great! Congrats! What a super sister-in-law

I've thought about getting my own domain too, but I don't really see the point until my blog is a little more established, heh

Makes my sister-in-law look like a pile of puke! Congrats on having your own domain; that's amazing!

Thanks again, Anne! Yeah, she's definitely a great sister-in-law :)

As for needing a domain, etc. -- I'm not sure *I* need one, to tell you the truth. I'll be good to have in the future, though, I think -- esp. if I ever run into problems with Blogger.

Oh, don't say that, Justin! I'll bet your sister-in-law is fab :) As for your congrats in regards to this domain business: Thank you!!

Hey that is awesome!! What a great sister in law.

My sister in law on the other hand....well, don't get me started. Suffice it to say she would never do anything that cool.

Thanks, Sean! Oh, I'm sorry so many of you are down on your sisters-in-law :( I guess I should feel even luckier than I already do to have Jan in my life :)

A little late, but congrats! Between the header image and the domain name, I think you definitely lucked out in the sister-in-law department ;D

Thanks, Kamiwoo! Yes, I certainly lucked out when it comes to sisters-in-law :)
