First post on fleminghq.com

Well, this is the first post on the blog. I was getting a little curious about how easy it would be to setup a domain name with some basic collaborative features for free for family. It wasn't that difficult at all.

I ended up buying my domain (FlemingHQ.com) & DNS from EasyDNS who I've used for years. That was about $60 for a 2 yr .com registry as well as advanced DNS services. Really, you could use a free DNS service and a 'cheaper' domain registry for about $10-$15.

After registering I quickly signed up for Google Apps. That will give us email, Google Docs, Google Chat and a basic web page service after making a few minor DNS changes which quickly synchronized in about an hour.

Next I grabbed myself a new blog at Blogger.com - then pointed aaron.fleminghq.com. and ghs.google.com. Easy, right?

Really, that's it! I'll keep adding to this as I think of things :)
