Luana.me Is On an Open HiatusUpdates · July 12, 2016, Tuesday
I’m planning changes for my blog — namely, I will be moving all the strictly personal posts elsewhere and the new blog will include:
- Updates on freelance work, fiction and artwork
- Updates on new connections and blog friendships
- Round-up posts from blogs I read and whose that I feel is worth sharing
- Anything about my fields (marketing, blogging, art, technology) that I feel are worth sharing
Thanks for stopping by!
7 Luana.me Things I Want to Change In 2016That Luana Me, Updates · March 30, 2016, Wednesday
How long since my last post?
Way too long. Months. 🙁

Why I Went From 270+ Domains To Only 28Kids, That Luana Me, Updates · October 16, 2015, Friday
NOTE: This entry is dated 16/10/2015 because it’s the time it had to go online. Unfortunately I had some problems that didn’t allow me to spend enough time on this blog, so the entry remained here as a draft. It finally goes online today, 10/02/2016. Coming back to blogging soon! ^^
Last year in September I posted about how and why I cut down my domain number to 270 (from 340+) and in January this year I posted a domain sale announcement because I was getting rid of several domains from my inventory.
Now I cut further down — I only own and manage 28 domains overall now. And the ones I cut off are all for sale here:
You may wonder why, as I’ve been telling how attached I am to my domains for years.
Well, it was a tough decision to make, one that costed plenty of tears, but I had to.
It’s simple: my child comes first.
One of my spiritual children has been in need for months and I felt awful knowing I could do nothing to ease his financial discomfort.
Believe me, it can be heartbreaking for a mother to feel so powerless (and useless) in front of her son’s suffering.
So I decided to cut down on my domains to have a bigger monthly budget to send to him.
Also, since I don’t swim in gold and I have lost two clients over the last months due to sickness and other work-related issues, I needed a bit of savings for myself as well, so cutting down helped.
Most important amongst these things for myself — I need money to buy textbooks and materials for my robotics projects.
There’s no way I can progress with my dream project and all the schemes unless I study the right materials, and textbooks and professional books are expensive.
So that’s it: my personal budget goes to these books and materials I need — with the seldom “self-gift” of a novel or two when I can rely on good deals and discounts, and a nice dinner with my fiance.
I think it goes without saying that I won’t give up on the blogs connected to those old domains — that’s what subdomains exist for. 😉
Thank you for sticking with me through everything, including this important change!
