I’m not sure if you can really call it a network, but these are the sites that I currently own and work on. I love all my sites dearly, and hope that I get to keep working on them in the future!
Enchant Me Not, this site, is my blog/graphics/resources/tutorials and “more” place. It’s the first site I opened (from this current batch anyway), and I love it. It started off as enchantmenot.tk, then I won a domain from a friend, and got enchantmenot.info. I kept the .info domain for about 10 months, but then I won another domain contest, this time from 6birds.net, and this time a got a (nicer) top level domain, so I thought I should change it. (It was an economical decision as well, since .org and .info’s cost the same to renew, even though .info’s are only $2.99 to register at first…).
The site used to have a “Written” section where I shared my poetry and short stories, but I decided to take this off for now. It also has a photoblog that I intend to try and update often. EMN also had a “Tech Help” blog, where I tried to update articles on “technology” as they happened. Clearly, this didn’t work out at first… But more about that later.
Just Smile is my way of trying to help people. I suppose you can call it a “charity” site, though I don’t think that’s really true. It’s a site where you can go and both share stories about things that make you smile, as well as read stories from other people. I hope to expand this site in the future, but in the meantime, go and submit a story! I had planned to start this site quite a while before I actually did, I just couldn’t find a domain that I liked, that also used the word “smile”. All the one’s I’d thought of had already been taken for dental purposes. x.x Then I came across Erin’s domain adoption agency, saw the domain, and fell in love! Since the site works, and helps people, I bought the domain off her, and plan to keep it for a very long time!
I won a reseller hosting account sometime in January, and figured I might as well host people and use the reseller account. I started out just giving free cPanel accounts – it was a pretty huge success, and so I decided to “expand the business” so to speak, so I started offering more features. If you ever need a host, you should definitely try me out! The site originally started as emnhosting.co.cc, however I was changing hosts, and thought it was about time I changed to an actual domain as well, so I bought emnhosting.com.
Wow, it looks weird just typing my name there… O_o. Anyway, I got the aashni.me domain as a prize from IceCaves.net‘s totally awesome challenge! (Actually, I won two domains…). I’m using this site to open up a portfolio site, as well as a place I can sell myself. Haha. I should rephrase that – sell my work – my layouts etc. Why the name “aashni“? If you have to ask that question, then leave. LEAVE right now! Just kidding – Aashni is my name.
Ahh, isn’t that such a fun word to say? Scuttlebutt. I first heard this word on the (not so) popular T.V. show NCIS, which I love! Technically, it means “gossip”, which although not a perfect fit, worked perfectly for another project I wanted to start. Remember the “Tech Help” I used to have on Enchant Me Not? Well, this is the new and improved version! Scuttlebutt gives you all the latest (whenever I have time to get online) news and updates on technology, and technology related things around the world. Fascinating right? This is the second domain that I won from IceCaves.net, and I absolutely love it! Scuttlebutt.
