So exciting!!

Flexo at Consumerism Commentary has an interesting proposal for we young bloggers who are leashed to Blogger.com. He's got loads of hosting space and is offering it up to us!! All you have to do is buy the domain, and you've got your own piece of the web. Pretty cool I think. I am going to work on setting something up for the Under 30 Honor Roll - unfortunately under30.com and underthirty.com are both taken and it would probably be expensive and complicated to get the name. Any suggestions on what the address for the Under 30 Honor Roll website should be? under30honorroll.com is a little too complicated, I think.

I'm very excited about this - I want to put up real forums, and get a spiffy webpage design with all the doodads and geegaws, and have someplace to host this automated blogroll thing we're working on without sponging off Boyfriend's server. I'd also like to use it to let people "guest blog" without having a regular blog. The main page, I'd definitely like to have a combined feed of all the members' pages, and also have archives of full length articles on different topics so that it can be sort of a one stop shop for financial information written by the under 30, for the under 30. =)

under30honorroll.com is only a little too complicated maybe the first time, then it is bookmarked by users, or you have it as an rss feed.

Is having a .net an option?

Just don't expect to have all of that up and running the same day you buy a domain, setting up forums, blog aggregators, ect will take a while

Well, I bought under30honorroll.com, and yes, it is going to take some time to set it up as I have no idea what I am doing. =)
