When I first launched my blog, it was on blogspot. The domain name was podonomicsexplored.blogspot.com.

I didn't realize my dirty little secret until a colleague told me that all my emails were being dumped into his spam folder. He was the one who pointed out that podonomicsexplored actually had the word sex in it. See it? podonomicSEXplored.

How embarrassing. So, I've made it a point to ensure that all future domain name are clean.
