I’ve decided to split my Internet presence into two halves: “business” (chromedecay.org) and “personal” (billvanloo.com).

To that end, I’ve set up this new domain, billvanloo.com, to host all my personal stuff – info about me, my personal blog, and family photos. This site is very much a work-in-progress at the moment, but will be added to in the upcoming days and months.

So, why the split? I just switched web hosting providers (to DreamHost, who I heartily recommend), and they offered a free domain regisration. Since I’d thought about having “billvanloo.com” for a while, I decided this would be a good time to acquire it, so I did. The thought of then splitting things up seemed like a natural one.

I’ll be using this blog to post more personal thoughts and reflections, often touching on my Christian faith. That’s something I started out writing about on the blog when it was hosted at chromedecay.org, but I slipped away from it as I began using the blog there more for music-related stuff. There will inevitably be some crossover on both blogs and sites, but that’s OK.

For now, enjoy the links to my family photo site on flickr, or my personal profile on audioscrobbler.
