My Own .Com

I've been working all morning on doing the one thing I vowed I would never do! I'm so illiterate in all things technical, that I'm amazed this blog has been up and running as long as it has. My sister got her own domain back in February, and I've been dragging my feet. In March we found a site that would let us register our domain names for free, so I thought what the heck, I'll take it for free. But then we realized that it required hosting with the company that gave it to us, which was fine since that was free too. The problem came when we realized that we couldn't put a blog on the website. So we needed to cancel our domains, and wait for them to come available again. I chose my nickname as my .com back then, and here we are 4 weeks later and my name still hasn't been released for re-purchase yet. I'm bummed, but I will either come up with a name kind of like the .com I want and then get the one I want when it opens up-or just sit and wait until it does. As of right now, I think I'm better off waiting just because I'm clearly not proficient enough to do this myself!
