Improvement since yesterday, I have not gained any Facebook friends but I also haven't lost any today! All is well! I was planning on having a very quiet evening with lots of work being done on my brand new Myspace profile, but one of my friends called and I ended up spending the evening with her, eating Lebanese food at the beach. Sometimes it's better to enjoy the sun instead of spending the evening glued on the computer.

So even though I was outside enjoying the nice weather for most of the evening, I still managed to get some work done on Myspace when I came back home. I am very pleased to announce that I improved the look and feel of my profile and I even added 2 songs for you to listen to so please dear friends, go ahead and listen to my music here and feel free to give me any comments you may have! Constructive comments are welcome too of course, I know I'm far from being perfect...

I also want to spend a few minutes to let you know a bit more details about setting up the websites www.claudielarouche.com and www.claudielarouche.ca. If you're not intested in those technical details you can stop reading this post now :)

Like I mentionned yesterday, one of my friends helped me set the websites up and if you try to access them, they will both redirect you automatically to Myspace. The reasonning is that using Myspace is much quicker and cheaper as opposed to creating my own website from scratch. And now that I bought claudielarouche.ca and claudielarouche.com, I'm sure nobody will steal them from me when I start becoming hugely famous. So it's an investment for the future :) Notice how justinbieber.com does not belong to the Justin Bieber we all know... I didn't want anything similar happen to me.

If anybody is interested in setting up a website, here is how I personally did it (actually all I did is type my credit card number when necessary, my friend did all of the work). I'm not saying this is the way everyone should do it, but it worked for me so I'm sharing the method with you. First of all we accessed the following website that enables you to buy a domain: http://www.domainsatcost.ca/

We set up my account there and following the instructions, I bought my two websites. It's good for two years, and it costed me $63 total. On the same domainsatcost website, there is a way to redirect the website you bought to another address, although the change may take a few hours (up to 24 I think) to complete successfully. I don't want to make this post too long so if you want more details about how to redirect, just send me a quick message and I'll help you the best I can. So that's it! This ended up being much simpler than I thought, and if I do want to have a really fancy website built from scratch one day, I can use these two addresses.
