Domain Name Change

Personal-Development-Rocks.com is about to undergo a name change, a surprisingly complex operation. If I have done my part correctly, the only thing you will notice will be the new name and new RSS subscription options, which are already available.

If you wish to do so, you can re-subscribe - or subscribe - now. Your subscription will carry over to the new site.

The serious part of this name change operation takes place via Solo Build It!, and SiteSell’s servers. Personal-Development-Rocks.com will be off air for approximately 24 hrs to allow all the technical stuff to slot into place.

When complete, the new site name will be – https//www.pdthinkersrock.com. This will take place soon.

I will advise you in advance of the switchover date.

A Domain Name change is the last phase of a massive time consuming technical process for Webmasters who metamorphose from a solid but rather clunky system to the fast and responsive Web experience we are taking for granted today.

The proliferation of Mobile Smart Phones has transformed the nature of Web Surfing and the construction of Websites. What was once cool and required, such as dashes and a long descriptive Domain Name, is now a hindrance to effective searching.

The Search Engines are building an environment whereby searchers can easily find what they are seeking. The Engines are accomplishing this by setting commendably high standards for Websites to meet.

In turn this encourages Webmasters to lift their game, and at the same time makes it very difficult for a cheat to feature on, let alone dominate, search engine result pages. In this new world being created, cheats will be weeded out and Merit will rule.

These complex technical, and behavior changes are for the better. We are all beneficiaries.

Technology companies came to the party with technical solutions to vexing problems. Such as responsive design platforms that host almost every device that could interact with the Web.

Taking advantage of these changes for the better, Website designers are showcasing their awesome expertise, producing everything from purely practical work stations, to works of art.

From my perspective of being both a Webmaster and a consumer, I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to each and every individual who has made, and continues to make, the Good side of the Internet what it is today.

In particular, I wish to express my deep gratitude to Ken Evoy and his dedicated team at SiteSell who have guided me on every step of this demanding journey of technical metamorphosis. These folk are a credit to themselves, their industry, and to Humanity. I am delighted to have met them through the very medium they are helping to shape for the better.

To be continued . . .

We are all the same - except for one darn thing - we are all different
