Site

Hosted by: OfBlue Hosting | Domain Registered With: DreamHost | Since: August 13, 2015

I have been blogging for many years, since roughly around 2004. I was a huge fan of subdomains and premade layouts, as I still am right now. I can’t remember all my previous sites, but the ones that I do were called Kage no Kokoro and Artificial Night. At one point I purchased hosting from Parade Hosting, which came with a free domain, so gekkostate.org existed for a time. However, I was very unhappy with the service they provided and my interest in blogging, and the wicked cool domain, waned. I chose not to renew either.

In 2014, after having been hosted by Kya previously under Bubble Hosting, I decided to give blogging another go when she opened up Giraffe Hosting. After having problems with FanUpdate, I begrudgingly switched over to WordPress.

In August 2015, I began thinking how much I’d like to have a domain and perhaps space of my own. With Tara holding my hand via Google Talk, I made my registrations and purchases through OfBlue Hosting and DreamHost.

Quick shout out to Siobhan for letting me know the domain was available! 

About the Domain

Sectumsempra” is a curse from the Harry Potter series. Its background lies with Severus Snape, who created the curse when he was a student at Hogwarts. While weighing my domain options, I knew I wanted one related to Harry Potter as it’s my absolute favorite thing in the world. Eventually I settled with Sectumsempra, since it just so happens to be my favorite curse out of everything mentioned in the books!
