I have 3 blogs as most of my 11 faithful readers are aware. One of them deals with Crap. I had it on a domain site because my IT guru talked me into it. It cost me money and then I had a TERRIBLE time with the particular domain which I won’t name (GoBattyDotCom) coz I don’t want to get sued for slander or libel or whatever it is these days.
Anyway…I decided to close down the Crap domain because it was so hard to update postings plus I was getting some horrible porn spam and frankly I just got tired of dealing with it all. I decided to re-start my Crap on a new blog. For some reason I chose Blogger as my platform, even though I have 2 blogs with WordPress. Don’t ask me why; you won’t get an intelligent answer, trust me.
So I set up Oh Crap on a Crutch and it wasn’t nearly as difficult as trying to use GoBattyDotCom. Plus it’s free. Plus it has all kinds of neat little gadgets I can use. I have two posts up so far. Bear with me as I learn how this platform works. I couldn’t believe…I had just put up my first posting and realized I had forgotten to include the “crutch” in all the pictures I used. There ya go – I am the most dysfunctional person on my block today without a doubt. I will try and remember to include the props in the photos from now on.
After all this blathering…the focus of this posting was supposed to be about how difficult it is to deal with these domain hosting people on the phone. I spent over 20 minutes TWICE talking to them just trying to get my domain closed. One person I spoke with I could hardly understand and he kept directing me to the wrong places on the website – gah…
It got to the point I wanted to rip my lips off so I wouldn’t start swearing like a sailor because I was only moments away from saying horrible nasty words….when I took a deep breath….said a little prayer and calmed down. I managed to close the account at that domain and convince them they owed me a $50 rebate (yay me).
And now…all of you who ever visited my Crap on a Crutch – as I mentioned in my last post, please change your links. To see the crap in my world please go to: http://ohcraponacrutch.blogspot.com or just click on the link I provided up a few paragraphs.
I managed to get a pic of EmmaLou, Golden Destroyer on the site – yay me. And I got a good portion of my blogroll transferred over – if you are not there and wish to be listed, please leave me a comment there and I will add you.
I’m tired — this domain wheeling and dealing is a pain in my a$$ and I need a vacation. sigh…
