June 2, 2013
June is our third birthday and we've been so thrilled to have our readers' continued support. We have been planning several celebratory giveaways for the month of June too.
However, yesterday we found out that this blog's domain name has been up for auction at godaddy for a few weeks and we might lose blogguidebook.com. We have been in contact with godaddy and hope to be able to resolve this problem. (Kind of freaking out!).
There are many hoops to jump through, however, and a rather hefty price tag to boot.
Of course, this was no one's fault. I changed my email and was not getting the renewal emails, so it completely flew by me. So, learn from me...mark it on your calendar when your domain is set to expire. If you're not getting any emails warning you to renew your domain name, then look into it. If you've purchased your domain through Blogger then you should set up an automatic renewal. (My credit card date expired so it could not be renewed this year)...dummy!
We will still be here, we just may not have our domain name anymore...so I hope you stick with us. We'll keep you updated. This should all come to a head in the next few days.
Then, just maybe, we can really celebrate our three years blogging at The Blog Guidebook.
Blessings all round,
