Beartoons.com instead of bearmancartoons.wordpress.com

Some of you may know that I have been doing my cartoons for about 3 years at the Cincinnati Beacon website.  Wanting to expand beyond just simply posting editorial cartoons, I started this blog about six months ago.  Knowing that I could still host my blog here but have my own domain name, I went to register bearmancartoons.com. 

What???? It’s not available.  Some dude had taken it six months ago.  I think he found me on the web and thought I would be an upcoming famous sensation that would make him rich by owning the domain.  All he had done is bought the domain and parked it so don’t bother seeing if he has a tribute to me on there. Well the jokes on you, because you are still paying for the domain and I am still not famous.

So I waited six months until his domain was set to expire and of course he renewed it.  Of course I could have gone with bearmancartoons.net but eh.

So lucky for you and me, I got an even better URL – BEARTOONS.COM.   Think how many characters I am saving on twitter posts. 

Now for those of you linking to me, don’t worry, bearmancartoons.wordpress.com still works.  However, eventually I may want to put advertising on my site so I would have to host it elsewhere.   If you are one of those who have kindly linked to me in the past, if you have time to update your links to point to Beartoons.com (you can leave the title of the blog as Bearman Cartoons), I would appreciate it.

  1. No! I absolutely refuse to do it! Just playing, Bearman! Of course I’ll change your link information so the world can continue enjoying your wonderful cartoons.

    For a nominal fee. In large, marked bills.

    • Well you don’t have to change it. Just a year or so down the line when I host my own blog and bearmancartoons.wordpress.com doesn’t work anymore, YOU my friend will have to answer to your readers who wonder why you post broken links.

  2. It has been done. I’m digging the new logo.

  3. Consider it done my good man.

    Will tweak my following and the links on my two blogs for ya.

  6. Cool! I think it’s a great idea going with a domain name for your blog. The link on your comment worked perfect. I still need to find that hammock…
