Just updated the domain from elmzarnsi.com to thevisayanblogger.com today. I did all the 301 redirects so that links from the previous domain will automatically redirect to the latter’s pages. Two months ago, I also made a domain change and that was from elmerbalb.in to elmzarnsi.com. I know that elmzarnsi.com was still new but there were a couple of reasons why I had to make the move.
The first reason was Twitter. Because of a stupid mistake I did a month ago, my blog got blacklisted by Twitter. Which means users, including me, can no longer post any link from my site there. elmzarnsi.com was reported to have malware, which it didn’t 🙁 However, because of a certain advertising network and the promise of their “new” format, my blog started showing links to malicious sites. I have since removed their code but the effect stayed with my domain. I couldn’t find a way to whitelist my blog again.
The second reason for the domain change is for the reorganization of my content and personal branding. To be fair, ELMZARNSI was too complicated to remember. My friends couldn’t even pronounce it right and I don’t blame them 😀 So after coming up with new names for my blog, I landed with TheVisayanBlogger – which I think suits me. The logo still needs some help though!
So this was just a quick update. For anyone who has bookmark any of my posts, don’t worry they will still redirect here. Have a good day! 🙂
