I'm Dumb and Need Help!

Soooooooo. Guys. How's it been?

I know it's been forever, but I swear I've been thinking about all of you. Mainly at night. When I'm lonely.

But seriously, I have been planning on overhauling (and possibly changing the name of) this blog for the longest time, and I think I'm finally ready. The problem is that I honestly have no idea how technology works [see this blog post]. I'm essentially your 45-year-old aunt who calls it "The Facebook" and opens those emails from a Middle-Eastern prince, who needs her bank account number so he can transfer a bunch of money to her for no reason whatsoever.

Therefore, I need help from someone who knows how this stuff works, i.e. you people!!!

Here's my dilemma: I know I should buy a domain, but I don't know where I should get that from. Do any of you have any recommendations? And when it comes to design, is it better to outsource or figure it out yourself? How much upkeep is it to host your own website? Any other information I should know? Any insight will help! I miss blogging and interacting with the incredible people who read the super dumb shit I write, but I want to start a new chapter and do it the right way.

On another note, I've been thinking about changing the name of my blog (since I plan on doing this long term, but do not plan on being a barista forever), but am kind of afraid of leaving behind all the work that has been associated with my blog with its current name. Anyone more savvy than myself have any opinion on this dilemma?

Now that I have shamelessly begged anyone who still reads this blog for advice, I will leave you with some current cuteness.

After the unexpected loss of our dog in October, we decided to get a puppy! He is a 5-month-old French Bulldog named Wrigley. However, I prefer to call him by his spirit name, Monsieur MeatNugget.

I feel the same way with web stuff. I bought a premade template from here and it was super easy to install. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do it myself but it took like two minutes. Your puppy is so cute!
