Happy first Advent, readers! The best time of the year is upon us: Christmas. It has snow, cold, red warm colors and a friendly atmosphere! In terms of blogging, this means more posts such as “12 Days of Christmas” and also yearly lists featuring the best anime of the year among other things!
In other news, I can happily announce that Anime Viking now has its own domain! When the blog turned two years old, I realized I had come a long way. As such, it would be natural to have my own domain since I knew I would continue to blog for a long time to come.
However, even so, I was a little bit hesitant. If I were to have my own domain, why not also switch to custom blog hosting? I had also come across some odd rumors about custom domains making the SEO worse. With this in mind, I decided to do some research and learn more about anything related to self-hosting.
Then, I came to a conclusion. Yes, I would purchase my own domain. The reason I decided to give it a go was to make Anime Viking a little fancier. In addition, it is a way to assure that the blog will not disappear any time soon. It was, as mentioned earlier, a natural next step to take. Plus, it was cheap.
Everything is the same as before, albeit with a different domain name. In fact, old links actually re-direct to the correct website pages! But if you discover any mistakes, please tell me. Especially when it comes to different feeds and readers, as I do not use them myself.
How does it look?
