Getting closer

We’re getting closer to the final goodbye to Shuaism. The post 301 redirects are done as are the category and page redirects. All that’s left is to get the tag 301 redirects, the root domain redirect, the webmaster tools change of address completed, and to write a blog post detaileing how to move your blog from one domain to another and the move will be complete.

I’m a little sad to see it go, but it was a confusing name that everyone mispronounced and held no meaning for those who don’t know me as Shua. It helped me very little with my personal branding and even less with my efforts to rank higher for my name than I currently do on Google (competing with male models and artists is hard work).

I want to take a quick second and thank everyone who has been with me on this journey and I look forward to another couple of years and all the changes, challenges, and opportunities to come.

As always. Thank you for reading,
Josh S Peters

BONUS! Check out this great video by the band Explosions In The Sky. It’s fantastic music for blogging, guideline writing, or even pushing through a mountain of 301s.

      I know… it’s a bit sad isn’t it.

    Did you have to do individual redirects on the posts? B/C I did a site move (same domain, different WP install), and was able to redirect the entire sub-directory to a different one (one line of code on the .htaccess file) and when trying to access an old blog post, it redirected automatically to the new.

    Redirect 301 /blog http://topgunoptions.com/intel-blog (that’s all I wrote)

    And then try to visit the page below:

    Example: http://topgunoptions.com/blog/soft-economic-data-pushed-equities-lower/

    You’ll see it redirects to the right blog post WITHOUT the need to map the 301 individually.

      That is WordPress magical. I did it the hard way. One 301 at a time

    I can understand the difficulty with putting Shuaism to rest. Tough decision but it makes perfect sense. Good luck!

      Thanks Sharon. I think this will be the final piece to the “personal branding” puzzle… plus it’s easier for people to pronounce :)
