It's funny how these words have an entirely different meaning today. In the Middle Ages one might think of one's "domain name" as one's lands. The king's domain name would be "England." No "dot" anything. Today, we can all find a little corner of the internet to call our domain. And so, too, did I with this blog. Oh, sure, as soon as I got the contract I finally bought the domain name of my own name for my website (www.JeriWesterson.com) Actually, I recommend you do that before you get that contract, just in case someone already had it. "Jeri Westerson" is unique enough that I didn't worry about that. And yes, it's my real name. And then I hurried out and got the domain name of my character Crispin Guest for his own blog www.CrispinGuest.com.
But I dragged my feet on this blog. Why? I don't know. I've had it as long as the website. One of my crit partners bullyied me into getting it (she was right, of course. She has an absolutely fabulous blog that got her so much recognition she got two book contracts out of it. See her at http://laurajames.typepad.com/clews/) So this is my roundabout way of saying that I finally got off the stick and bought the domain name for this blog. You can change it in your favorites or on your blog rolls to read www.Getting-Medieval.com which will put your right here. The old one will still work, too, but this is cooler.
