So, I called on my brother to develop my site. I don’t know how I forgot he has the computer tech. skills. I did keep a blog through WordPress during my student teaching but after another teacher was removed from the school, due to her blog, I decided I’d rather be safe than sorry and deleted mine. I created a website for my friend’s mother too but it’s still not my strongest area. If it were, I would have developed my own online teaching platform by now (may be a future endeavor, it all depends on what happens once my trip is done).
I have to come up with a catchy name for my site; something easily remembered. The only problem is the names I like are already taken…
www.abroadabroad.com (with it’s double meaning, I thought it would be great) but, alas, it as well as other variations were already taken.
So, I called on the creative genius of my sister but the names she suggested were also taken.
Finally, I asked Jayla, and she said, “How about two Jay’s? You know, because our names start with a J.”
I just stared at her blankly and then decided if it was available we’d take it.
Now www.2jais.com it is.
I suppose it’s easy enough to remember. It means ‘jet’ in French and ‘them’ in Lithuanian, not that it matters but when I feel like getting thuggish I intend on shouting out “2 Jaissssssss” in my 2Chainz voice.
(*Update* My brother called me and was able to get me the current name broad abroad…close enough)
I think I’m going to start plugging my entries in so they’ll be ready to go once I get on the plane. I’m actually starting to get excited about blogging about this adventure and if Trump becomes president I will be extending my trip until 2020.
The next plan is to design and determine how I want the layout of my page. There are my planning entries but I also have some personal entries that I write in my personal journal that I don’t know if I want to share.
I want to post my itineraries and cost separately and then Jayla’s going to have her own tab – we’ve decided she’s going to be “The International Food Critic” (thanks Bob). Maybe, I’ll just be big and bold and post all my entries….
