I moved the site from a working sub-domain to its own domain today. This should be the sites permanent home. I still have a lot build out and adding content to do but I thought I had enough done that the site would be useful.
I had a number of domain names I considered that would be more search friendly but I did not think they reflected what I wanted to do with the site. The city has a site that is set up for visitors who are just tourist. I want to develop this site for visitors who are looking for the story behind Portland. What makes the place livable. What makes the place weird. What makes it a city that works (well most of the time). So I thought PortlandOrPortlandia.com better fit that idea.
