For the last 16 months, the 101 Books main URL has sucked. I realize that.
The URL has a thousand letters, including Lord knows how many “O”s, a bunch of periods. There’s like 38,000 different ways to say “One hundred AND one.” It’s just a pain in the butt to remember.
When I started the blog, all the obvious URLs under the WordPress domain were taken, so did the best I could–which means if you didn’t have the blog bookmarked, you’d have a hard time remembering how the heck to get here.
That is, until today! Last week, you may have noticed that the URL at the top of your screen says “101books.net.” Thanks to a little domain mapping upgrade, I now have a much easier to remember URL. The old URL will still work, but it just automatically routes to 101books.net.
So, hopefully, if you’ve had a hard time remembering the URL, you’ll now have a much easier time. The one catch? It is a .NET, not a .COM.
If it’s important enough to me to make an entire post about the URL change, then you know I’m quite happy with it. If you’re on WordPress, for $17 a year you can do the same thing. I’d recommend it.
For fun, what’s the most difficult-to-remember URL you’ve ever seen?
