As you may have heard, Automattic recently secured the rights to operate the sale and registration of .blog — a new top-level domain, which is currently in the Sunrise period, where trademark owners can apply.


The Landrush period, where anyone can apply for their desired .blog domains, is scheduled for November 2nd, and public launch is expected on November 21st. However, a few select bloggers were granted the possibility to get .blog domains sooner as part of the Founders Program, and I was very lucky to be one of them.

Welcome to konstantin.blog — a new home for my archive of almost eight years worth of writing on many topics, including SEO (yeah…), AWS, Twitter, robotics, Linux, PHP, WordCamps and WordPress.

I admit I have neglected this place for a while, haven’t posted as much as I should have, and I can probably come up with plenty of excuses. But this new domain comes with a little string attached — I have to write more frequently, which I intend to do, so watch out for fresh thoughts, ideas, tips and hacks, and a lot of WordPress of course.

If you’re looking for your own .blog domain, head over to get.blog for more information and updates.
