Changing My Blog Address

So I have decided to change my blog address. It will be the same blog with the same content. The only thing that will be different is the address, i.e., the URL. I just thought I made the announcement here before carrying out any changes, which all take effect this weekend. Do check back Sunday or Monday.

The new site address will be www.walkflypinoy.com. As for the old address (www.lakadlipadpinoy.com), I will create a new blog for it. I did pay for the domain for one year anyway. I will use it as a redirect site, i.e., all past posts there will contain a link to my new address.

For RSS subscribers, no adjustments necessary as I am not changing the original feed address. Though you might have some trouble accessing past posts. For Blogger followers, no adjustments necessary as well. It's still the same blog on Blogger. Only it has a different URL and name.

Why am I changing addresses? I guess I just really want this blog to be accessible to both Filipinos (in my mind, they are the ones I am writing for) and non-Filipinos (that is, the international independent travel community, which exists, by the way).

So, I thought I should change the address to the de facto international language of travel: English. That way, it will be easily recognizable. However, I am keeping the "Pinoy" part. Everybody has got to learn that word at some point.

I was hesitant at first about this change because I noticed that when I bought my own address, the site traffic increased. Not astronomically, of course. Still, I was concerned about the possibility of losing all the traffic I have built up. Then I figured, it will be harder to change addresses should traffic continue to go up. So there.

By the way, just so you know, I am doing all these in preparation for something big. Details soon!
