You may be noticing that there are a few things different on the site. Primarily that the site is now at a new web address, and the names and titles of everything have changed.
The site is no longer Adventures in Husbanding, and we are no longer at Adventuresinhusbanding.com. I've renamed the site Idiot Tantrum, and moved the web address to Idiottantrum.com
As we are right around the one year anniversary of the site, I'm doing a little re-branding. I'm not going to get into a whole long thing about why I'm changing it as I can't imagine it's all that interesting.
For the curious, the highlights of why I've made this switch are basically the following:
1. Now that the site has had a year of activity and I've had time to see the form it naturally took over a little bit of time, I realize that calling it Adventures in Husbanding is a little more narrow of a category than what the content of the site actually is. While I'm still continuing to write about being married and generally being a giant infant in adult clothes, I've found that the stuff I'm writing about isn't so much directly about marriage and being married as it is just about life in general. There is some sort of metaphor in there about discovering that marriage is just the name of the thing while the thing itself is the act of sharing life in the real world with someone, but we're more about fart jokes and jetpacks here, so let's just move on.
2. I felt like the site name and the web address Adventures In Husbanding was clunky and didn't fir with what the site's contents had. It didn't roll off the tongue all that well, and it was kind of long as a web address. Idiot Tantrum just sounds nicer to me, and I think it's easier to remember. I also felt like it fit the spirit of the site a lot better. I wan't people to know what they're getting into when they come here.
That's basically it. Long Term the goal is to make everything a more cohesive thing, with a certain look and feel that is uniform. Nothing is really changing about the site besides the name.
If you primarily come here through Facebook, which my analytics tell me is where most of my traffic funnels through, the original Facebook page will remain "Adventures in Husbanding" for a little while and then eventually change as well. Links from old posts on the old site will still be clickable on Facebook and will redirect to the new address, as will going to www.adventuresinhusbanding.com.
Right now, as far as I can tell, as long as I don't edit the URL slug associated with the blog which is still /aih none of those old links will break. I'd like to be able to change it to something that matches the new site name eventually, but until I can figure out if there is a way to do that without having to go in and edit the URL of every single post I've made since last year on Facebook, I'll be holding off.
Look for new posts coming soon, I've got some stuff in the works.
