So I’m already aggravated with the wordpress.com limitations….which really sucks; because it’s an awesome software set. But the lack of widgets and theme’s I can tack on/make changes to and link issues are enough to get to me to move on and move up.
For example; I’d like to be able to add this to a post but due to “wordpress.com software security issues” I cannot. (well i say that’s what I want to add, there’s actually a coded embed link that will give a quick look at what I did: map; distance; time; etc that I can’t even externally link too off of wordpress.com)
I am also wanting to add a couple widgets to the side bar that automatically updates for mileage ran; total distance; etc… kinda like this
i’m about 80% sure i’ll end up using the wordpress.org software; but I have to (ugh) buy a domain. not to mention I would probably choose one better than “thriftruns.com”
I just dunno about using my name in a domain….I wish i could do something like “varunner.com” or “runva.com” …but they aren’t available.. “sovarunner.com” is available; but I’ m not sure it’s easy enough to remember/figure out. (southern virginia, for anyone slow to the catch) It makes sense to me because of SVMBA here in town (southern VA mountain bike assoc).
cool domain names that you aren’t already trying to buy?
widgets aren’t worth a dollar a month and just stick to wordpress.com?
