Word Press

Okay, just a quick note before I hit the sack.

If you have been reading this for a while, you will know that I have been stressing about losing my domain name and consequently the blog because I had no idea how to pay for it. I should have known, and I suspect that I did know at one time, but for the life of me I just couldn’t remember.

Last year I got numerous notices that the bill was due and I had prepared myself to lose the blog. Somehow…miraculously, after a couple of months I was notified that I was all paid up. Cool! I don’t know how or why, but you should never look a gift horse in the mouth.

Wait a minute. I think you should look a gift horse in the mouth. If the good people of Troy had taken a peak, that historical battle would have had a totally different ending.

A month or so ago I started to get these messages of doom once again. I want to pay, I really do but I just don’t know how and there is no way to contact Google to get that information. Today, I lost it and in the space at the bottom of those help answers I told Kelly (bullshit name) that I had wasted enough of my life pissing around with Google’s Blogger and I would take my business to Wordpress. I knew that no one was going to read it, but it did give me closure…sort of.

I was kind of excited about the move, and really I would only have to notify Brian, Mars, Karen and Kathy who are really the only people who read it semi regularly. Maybe this time I would just do one blog a week and make it quality. The obvious problem is that there is a good chance I am incapable of quality. Oh well, I will take my time and figure it out.

For some reason I tried one final time to make a payment. Wouldn’t you know, I figured out how to get to the administrators page of my blog. The problem with the payment is that the card I used had expired and I was sent a new one which had different numbers than the one on record. Anyways, long story short…I changed the card number and paid for the blog. Now I am waiting to see if I was too late and they will cancel it anyways. Then the problem will be how to get my money back.

You will know what happened if the blog continues or if you start to see the blog on Word Press.
