I don’t know if you noticed, but typing rarasaur.com into your browser will bring you here directly! This little update is absolutely thrilling to me because it makes it 9 letters easier to type and 3 syllables faster to say.
It helps to have a shorter URL because most people try to run away when I tell them about my blog.
My shortened domain name was Dave’s gift to me at 3000 readers, and recently I clicked right past that milestone and hit 4000.
I love thinking about how that means I’ve celebrated at least 4000 times since opening this blog.
For those interested in the technical details, I didn’t actually buy the premium service at WordPress, though I hear it’s fabulous.
All we did was buy a $10 domain over at GoDaddy and forwarded it here. In non-geek-speak, that means my website is still rarasaur.wordpress.com. As you navigate the pages, you’ll still see rarasaur.wordpress.com up in your browser header.
Rarasaur.com is just a shortcut to my homepage– which for me, and my non-professional blog, is more than enough.
In fact, it’s pretty wonderful.
Just like you.

A specific post is even better than a homepage. Your favorite post is better than a recent one. Then buzz around— visit some friends and send some rawr love their way.
