30 Days of Blog 2017 – Five

So year before last I was short on cash and let my domain name expire. (It was stitchedinlove.com) It got swooped up and held hostage (not being used) as a premium domain for the price of like $300.00. Nope. Not going to pay that. If you’d been realistic and done like $50.00 or maybe even $100.00, I might have bit my lip and taken the hit. But that much is ridiculous.  You don’t have me over the barrel that you think you do here.

So I tried biding my time, figuring it was worth a try.  It was set to expire on June 1st, but of course they renewed it, and now the premium domain price is $783.00 with a minimum offering price of $509.00 required. <Insert maniacal laugh.>

So I did some brainstorming and some collaborating with my crafty friends and finally ended up wondering why I hadn’t used StitchedInLoveCrocheting.com in the fist place. The only thing that I can think of is that it’s a bit long, but it doesn’t seem too bad to me now.  It’s more specific and clear what the website is with this URL anyway. I like it better than the other URL, so there!

As a result, I’ve had to go back and update my watermarks with the new address.

    My only concern would have been that a lot of people can’t spell “crocheting,” but then I realized… anyone who crochets is going to know how to spell it.

    My old domain, heith.com, has been held hostage since 2001. I didn’t have the money to renew it and it got scooped up by profiteers. Much good may it do them. No one knows what the hell a “heith” is anyway.

    • I had a domain expire once before and it got held hostage for a year. But after that year I was able to get it back. I will probably keep an eye on it and get it if they ever let it go and just forward it to the new one, just in case anyone with any of my old marketing materials happens to try to get there. But I’m not going to spend several hundred dollars on it, ever.
