40Tech
40Tech

@JeffPerry I don’t know that there’s a right or wrong answer. I guess you need to think about what you want to accomplish - promote yourself, or promote your site. If the latter, I’d push the Tablet Habit brand and stick with that. If you’re more concerned with getting your name out there, then the former. I often think it would be smarter, for promoting myself in my industry, if I were evankline everywhere instead of 40Tech, but I started my site in 2009 so inertia just has me using 40Tech everywhere. And somebody already has evankline on Twitter (I have it just about everywhere else though).

@40Tech see my issue is I don’t know which one to choose between personal name and a brand.

@adiabatic I’m not sure I get what you’re saying about that last part. It somehow got turned into a code.

@adiabatic I’m gonna take a wild guess and say you meant to have it just say a quick blurb on how I’m on Tablet Habit and that be the entirety of the site?

@adiabatic I guess what I’m saying@is I want one username. My microblog is JeffPerry, my personal Twitter is iamJeffPerry, my website it TabletHabit and I have social media accounts for it as well. I just want to know if moving my site to something like JeffPerry.xyz and making my name jeffperryxyz for everything is a good idea or is I should just have different names and let people figure it out on their own.

@JeffPerry I also own iamJeffPerry.com which could be an option as well.

@JeffPerry As far as exporting your WordPress stuff over to Blot.im, David (the person behind Blot) has scripts you can run yourself on the exported WordPress XML file, or he can run it for you. David has been very quick to respond. I’ve been very pleased with Blot.im

@JeffPerry If you really desire a personal branding, and domain then by all means go for it. I started way back in 2004 and used names, nicknames, and domain names that were all over the place. By the time I realized I wanted everything streamlined and with Abraham most of the domain names and social media URLs were gone.

If what you want is available, then get it. It's very easy to change domain names and keep the search engines updated with your new virtual address.

Personally though I would keep the sites separate. Depending on the content. I wouldn't club everything under a single domain. Your microblog can replace your Twitter, but if you blog or microblog about various topics, then having separate domains/websites for the different topics would be my preferred choice.

@jmreekes how did you get the titles of your posts to be links to the permalinks of the specific post?
