Notice anything different. How about a change in the URL for this website? Bingo. Well over this weekend, I have finally migrated Watson Inc from the old URL http://www.www.roshawnwatson.com to www.roshawnwatson.com. I know it is not original to use your name as the domain for your website, but it is certainly pragmatic. Len Penzo mentioned that the name is secondary to content anyway, and I tend to agree. However, that doesn’t mean I didn’t experiment with other names (i.e. your wealth builder.com, yourfinance.com, Richdad.com and Dave Ramsey.com) weren’t available. (Incidentally, yourfinance.com apparently was available for the nominal fee of $25,000, but I decided to pass on it though Thus, I chose to migrate the site to roshawnwatson.com, which I had purchased a couple years ago. All previous content is still available, all subscriptions are still active, and all of the old URLs still work! Probably the biggest disappointment is that some of the background work I do in terms of marketing, SEO, Alexa ranking all have to be readdressed. It’s sort of like restarting again. Unfortunately, all of your past RTs, Digg votes, stumbles, etc. are not displayed on this new URL. I still have tremendous gratitude for all of your generous help. It’s been a phenomenal ride so far, and I am so excited about upcoming projects and the increased appearance of professionalism this domain change will afford.
Now, it’s time to do the weekly Uncommon Money News and Yakezie Round Up (interestingly, the first phase of Yakezie ended on Sunday).
Uncommon Money News and Yakezie Round Up
In preparing to write my posts, I often come across noteworthy and sometimes bizarre financial and business news. Below are links to some of these sites. Enjoy!
Recently, I participated in four carnivals: Festival of Frugality hosted at Funny about Money, First Yakezie Milestone Carnival hosted at My Journey To Millions, The Economy and Your Finances hosted at One Mint, and Carnival of Financial Planning #148 hosted by My Wealth Builder
