I Sincerely Apologise for Not Getting Back To You

On the back of a disturbing story I heard last week about blogging domain names being renewed by third parties at 12 midnight on the day of their expiry date.  Then the blog's domain name being offered back for sale, to their original owner at a ridiculous price, I thought I had better turn on my old computer to check my godaddy account, as I hadn't heard from them for a while.

I haven't turned on the old computer for some months and it was to my great astonishment that a whole lot of my desire empire emails do not come through to my newer computer as the service provider promised they would, but only to the old one.

So what this has meant, is that I have missed many opportunities in the form of business offers to my small but fledgling styling business and also possible features of my blog and home in various publications.  However,  the most important thing I have missed dear reader, is the opportunity to answer all your wonderful emails and read your fabulous comments that were not posted on my blog.  So to you, I say a heart felt apology and know that I am slowly getting through all the correspondence and will answer you in due course.

For those that have stuck by  me I truly appreciate it.  The Beach House Brats will tell you I'm big on manners so to me this is  important.  I can only again say I am sorry and that from now on I will be checking both computers daily. And if you run your blog as a godaddy account, check its renewal date and make sure you get there before the vultures do. Sad that there are these kind of people out there.

I have just scrolled back through the blogs I follow to find out where I heard this story.  I am sorry again, but I could not find them.  So if you know the blogger to whom I refer to,  please post their site in the comments so others can read the full story.

Hope you are all having a great week.  These are the last of my Hunter Valley shots.  These are a some of the Pepper Creek development in Pokolbin....I hope you enjoy them. 

Today I am linked up with

Post script: After a little research, I have discovered the affected blogger is  so head over there if you want to find out the whole story.

  2. oh how terrible : ( thanks for the warning.

  3. I honored you with an award on my blog. Check it out!

  4. Thanks for the warning, I hadn't heard about this. What a great place by the way x

  5. Well that stinks!

    I love your photos, such a beautiful place, that banquet room gives me an idea to share with my SIL for her reception, it is beautiful!

  6. Oh my! This is such a good point and something I never even thought about! Thanks for sharing this at my blog party today. I am so sorry to hear about your missed opportunities, but am sure they will come around again. You are too talented for those folks to not ask again! I am going to post a link to your site on my FB site sending all my new blogging friends your way. Thanks again!

  7. Hi Carolyn! Great reminder. You can also set your GoDaddy account to automatically renew. I keep the card on file that I used to purchase both my domain names and it renews every year without me having to remember. It always sends a reminder that it's getting ready to renew so IF someone didn't want to renew for some reason they could always cancel. I look at it like insurance for our blog. lol

    When you spend so much time building a blog up you certainly don't want to lose your domain name to someone else. Thanks for sharing this reminder with us at Inspiration Friday!


  8. Hello BHG! Thank you for all your sweet comments and visiting me, I love hearing from you. :)
    The inspiration from these photos fro my brothers reception was the fabric swags, I love them, they are so simple and elegant. I do love the candles too, they are gorgeous. The wedding is 6 weeks away so we need to get moving and see what can work in the reception hall. It is fun though and I am excited.
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Thanks for the warning! Great photos -- beautiful setting!

  10. Love those wedding shots! And thanks for the warning. That would be awful to lose a domain you had worked so hard on. :) Have a wonderful weekend.
