In Which Blogger Has Totally Pissed Me Off.


My blog is going to disappear in two days.

Why? Because it's time to renew my domain name, and when I sign on to my Admin settings to renew it, I get an error message.  It's a KNOWN bug, but Blogger isn't bothering to fix it.
(check out these forum posts about a 'newly identified bug' - and they are from MAY.)

I do not have the time, energy, or patience to fight with this.  And while stressing about it a couple of weeks ago, I suddenly thought to myself, "Do I really care?"

And the answer was, no, no I really don't.

I think it's time for a change.  My life has changed dramatically since I started this blog, and maybe it's time that my blog evolves with me.

I have already exported my blog to my computer so I won't lose it, and if I choose to, I can upload it to my new blog, wherever that might be.

But yeah.  I think it's time to retire this one.

I'm not going to drive myself crazy trying to get the new blog up, but I will keep you posted.  Most of you know how to find me (I'm on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter), and I'll still have the email address if you're interested.

This is not goodbye!  It's see ya soon in another location.  Oh and BLOGGER/Google Apps, you suck, you have lost a long standing loyal paying customer.  Peace out.

So sorry for the issues you're having to deal with! I, like Debby, never bought my domain name, either. Don't be away too long, my friend!

I paid for my old domain for Pampers and Pinot, and then someone hijacked that one (it still exists as a blogspot address at least). I was on the phone with people, called Go Daddy, they said talk to Google. Talk to Google?! Ha! There's not even a way to email about a concern. Gah. Tech issues.

:) Your domain will still remain at the blogger address (xxx.blogspot.com). And if you need any help with your new one... oh wait, I hate wordpress. :D

Talk to Google? Isn't Blogger owned by Google? I hate it when people give me the run around like that!

I have my own domain name. I didn't realize I could switch to something else. So far (knock on wood) my blog is still working. If I run into trouble, I'll be giving you a call to help me move on over to WP. xo
