Tundravision now has its own URL! Yes, I ponied up the money and you can now access TundraVision directly at tundravision.com (removing that whole "blogspot" deal).
Here are a couple of Frequently Asked Questions about the name change:
You now have your own website name! Are you going to be expanding Tundravision?
I probably could, but I really don't have any need to get all Twittery right now. There are a lot of great websites out there that are already "one-stop shop" sites for Packer news. I think PackerChatters does a great job in doing that, being a central location for draft news, and has a solid, well-moderated forum. CheeseheadTV has great rim-shot commentary of daily happenings and is slowly becoming the hub of the Packer Blogosphere. And I don't miss a day of Railbird Central's Daily Links, which sums up the mainstream and online jewels nicely.
All these sites are places I go to see what is going on there and elsewhere. And sometimes, they will cite Tundravision as a place to check out, which is always appreciated.
Why don't you want to become a "one-stop shop" kind of site?
Well, I have a lot on my plate...job, wife, kids, coaching. I really don't want to spend any more time in front of a computer than I already do. Someday, when Tundravision is bringing in six figures a year annually for me, I may expand it out a bit. But right now, I'm just going to focus on what I do best, which is a good long feature essay every couple of days.
So, why the domain name change?
Well, I was getting tired of these conversations:
Buddy: So, what is your blog called again?
Me: Tundra Vision
Buddy: So, I just go to Tundra Vision dot com and look at it?
Me: Well, no. You have to go to Tundra Vision dot Blog Spot dot com and look at it. Or you can just do a Google search for Tundra Vision and...
Buddy: Wait...Blog Dot Spot Com?
So, it makes it easier. And, I suppose, it also makes me feel a little more legit as a true Packer Blog site.
So, you think you're all that?
And a side order of fries.
Now, I have some of your old blogspot articles linked on my site. Will I have to change those links?
Nope...the old blogspot links will redirect to their respective links on TundraVision. Pretty slick. I like "not a lot of work" for both you and me, trust me.
Will your stuff still be on PackerChatters?
You bet. PC gave me my start at writing and I appreciate all their support with that.
Anything we can look forward to in the future at TundraVision?
I've always wanted to podcast...in fact, I think I had brought up the idea at PackerChatters before they merged with Packers Therapy. But again, it is time and energy that I would need to find and stay consistent with. Maybe someday soon!
Thanks to all those folks who check in and leave comments! It's great to be a part of such a great online Packer community!
