For over six years, I had my own website associated with my domain I had initially installed WordPress and posted my blog there. Then it got hacked, and I cleared out the WordPress installation since I just didn’t have time to maintain it. I shifted my blog to WordPress itself instead.

I was wondering what to do with the space. I toyed with the idea of hosting my own magazine, running contests, creating a forum, and God knows what else. It didn’t cost a great deal, so while I sat twiddling my thumbs, time passed.

This year, I got fed up. I decided to let the registration lapse. So what if my domain name was not going to work any more? It wasn’t as if I had millions of visitors who would get affected. The last day passed, and I waited and waited, but didn’t feel even the slightest twinge of regret. In fact, I felt relieved that it was all over.

And then, out of the blue, I got an email that said my domain was being renewed. I quickly checked and damn! I had forgotten to disable the auto renewal facility for the domain. So there I was, with the domain name still alive and kicking and very much my baby, whereas the website was all gone.

I did what I do best the next few days — I procrastinated brilliantly. Finally, I felt energized enough to look up mapping my WordPress blog to my domain name. And then I procrastinated again.

I am glad to announce that I have reached the goal post at last! My domain name is finally mapped to my WordPress blog, so if you do type in, you should come to this blog.

They say, Bhagwan ke ghar mein der hain par andher nahin.

Well, at least I got this done before Diwali! 😀
