Name my personal finance blog/website.

Asking for my boyfriend: This will be a blog about what steps I am taking as I learn to be responsible with money, with the goal of retiring early. I will write about budgeting, saving for an emergency fund, figuring out how to invest in 401ks, etc. While this all sounds serious, I am a young guy with a sense of humor. Some ideas I am considering inside.. [more inside]

Mapping a Domain to a TypePad Blog

Domain mapping to a TypePad blog. For the past 10 days, I have desperately been trying to map a domain name to my TypePad blog. Every solution offered to me by either TypePad or my registrar seems to undo something else. I am trying to: have the domain mapped seamlessly (masked, I believe it's called), but also for the Permalinks (unique urls) to work. I am in over my head! [more inside]

Domain name retention

My current host is closing down, and since I bought my domain through them it will be transferred into my name before they finally close at the end of the year. However, my domain expires on December 12, and they are so far unresponsive to my emails and have not transferred the domain (it has been two weeks since my initial request). I am worried that if I'm not able to renew it, it will be snapped up by a domain-sitter and I will lose it. In case it isn't transferred in time, is there a way I can beat the domain-sitters to it and reserve my domain? What are the more affordable options for doing this? Will I be guaranteed to get it?
