I've set up a personal domain at samgrover.com. It is quite simple for now. I've also set up a photoblog there called "As It Is". It is about street photography and will have some of the photos I put up on flickr. Other sections remain to be filled and imagined.
I will move this blog to that domain when I've figured out a simple way to migrate it with all posts and comments intact.
P.S. I'm using DreamHost for hosting. Check them out and if you like their services, use the promo code SAMG to sign up with a large discount. Depending on the plan you get upto $97 off making this a really cool deal. I'm paying only $30 for an entire year using their Level1 plan.
