Tech Mommy Move

I just completed my ultra geeky mom certification today, I promise. No, it’s not an actual title, but it SHOULD be! I actually cant believe I didn’t think of this earlier, but you can blame it on my late-start to the ultra tech world.

What did I do? I just bought domain names for my 1- and 2-year-old.

Yup, that’s right. I’m paying $9.95 per year to hold domain names for my kids until they’re ready to use them. And with me for a mom, they’ll be ready to use them sooner than later! I was kind of bummed that they didn’t have .coms left for my kiddos names, but I did end up with .orgs which are good enough.

I’m worried about their safety with the phones. I’ve been reading FlexiSpy reviews 2017 to determine whether it’s the right app to use to track my kids. But that’s a story for another day.

I actually plan to help my kids build their first sites when they get a bit older – I’m not going to use the domains to build them blogs right now where I blog about each kid, but want the domains to be used for sites THEY create eventually. I’m seriously not leaving the tech education of my children up to their schools, well do this as a fun mom-kiddo activity.

They may not use these domain names for a few years, but my kids will be thanking me laterthey WILL, stop doubting me!

 

I’m also excited because my .com name was FINALLY available and I just managed to grab it – yay! Now, if you will excuse me, I’m going to get my nails done at the closest nail salon to me.

And yes, the total of my domain purchases this year is well over $100 – kind of cringeworthy, but buying them is addictive..

Anyone else do this? Anyone? Cmon, I KNOW some of you did, since you told me about it on twitter!

Note: I bought the domains at DreamHost because I love DHs easy install of WordPress for when I finally end up hosting something behind the names.
