I have written numerous small articles and personal posts at penguinmeetpython.com over the past year. Jenna originally registered that domain for her use; however, I eventually hijacked it since it sat dormant for what I considered too long. The domain never really seemed to fit for my personal use and I was yearning for a more personalized space.
A few weeks ago I decided to consolidate my online presence - I had a collection of user names including schrierc, chrisix, chris.schrier and many others which was too cluttered in my mind. I forced myself to rename and move all of my utilized web accounts into a single username with great success. I lost a few twitter followers and will undoubtedly loose some RSS subscribers but I feel that the change will be worth the potential loss.
A part of this effort is moving away from penguinmeetpython to schrierc.org. This website will be more of an experimental playground for me. Since I was using DreamHost for penguinmeetpython I felt confined into a painfully limited box. Dknowles suggested that I investigate SliceHost a few weeks back and upon investigating their service I was excited to try them. I decided to wait for my DreamHost account to expire so I could utilize the service I had already paid for. Since my DreamHost account expires in December I decided today was finally the time to create my SliceHost account and transition to my new home.
