Welcome to themodernausten.COM! (+Goodies for you!)

I can't believe I did it! I finally bought a domain name  for my original blog (http://themodernausten.wordpress.com) via Blue Host (see my thoughts below) and I am SO glad I did. If you followed my "old blog," you may remember I was feeling pretty burnt out after a few months of blogging. Well, I realized that much of this was due to me being unhappy with not being able to "control" my blog as well as I'd like. But now that I have my own domain name and a shiny new Thesis framework (see my thoughts below) that I have been working diligently on for the past few days, I am really happy with it. I still don't know if I'll be able to keep up with the blog as much as I'd like once I start teaching, but at least it will be how I want it.

To celebrate my new domain, I have a few goodies to share! The Modern Austen is open to advertisements and I encourage you to check out my Ad Shop. But before you go, here are two promo codes you can use, including a FREE Spot Swap and 10% off any other ad!

My thoughts on Blue Host:

Blue Host has been a great tool so far! It is easy to use and it is affordable. While there are several other hosting sites to choose from like Hostgator, Blue Host offers some unique features like a Free Domain Name.

My thoughts on Thesis:

I am IN LOVE with Thesis! I don't know a stitch of CSS or JavaScript and only some minor HTML and I still created a blog that I am happy with. Any questions I had were answered via Google or Thesis's fantastic help forum. This theme is completely customizable and can be altered to fit your needs. This was an absolutely necessary purchase and worth every penny. Interested? Please click the banner below!* Thesis Theme for WordPress:  Options Galore and a Helpful Support Community
