I just wanted to take a brief moment and share with anybody who may have been following our family blog or who may see it on the spreadsheet listing from the 'Follow Me Club' group. Google/Blogspot sold our custom domain name that we bought for the year. We new the time was coming for us to renew our yearly fee to continue using our domain name so we were watching our email and any dashboard alerts on our blog very closely for any reminders on the exact date of the expiration so we could have the opportunity and option to pay for an additional year to keep our name attached to our blog still, but Google/Blogspot NEVER sent us any type of renewal reminder, e-bill, or anything in our email account or even directly on our blog or blog account with them. I even went back and combed through all of our emails going all the way back to two weeks before Thanksgiving, just to make sure we didn't overlook anything, but my husband and I still don't see any notifications from them. This is VERY frustrating for us and we have been trying HARD to get in touch with Google Apps/Blogspot to ask tehm how they could rightfully do this without sending us a reminder or option to renew and continue keeping our domain name, but every time we try to locate any direct contact information for them, it's all been in vain. So on this note, if you happen to have been following us and notice that it's taking you to a new site that is not a blog, but more of a website sponsoring host of various lins than please feel free to make whatever adjustments to be following our blog through our VERY OLD .blogspot URL, which is www.thelopezfour.blogspot.com
. Our old blog (with our custom domain) was: www.Godsnotfinishedwithusyet.com
, which was sold wihtout us knowing or any type of warning to us. Just wanted to let you know...aslo in case any of you have grabbed and added our family blog button to yours I have the adjusted blog button code on our site. If we happen to buy a new domain name through Google/Blogspot I'll let you know of this as well. Sorry for any frustration this may be to those still working through the followers list. Just let me know that you began to follow me and I'll greatly follow you back as well.
My husband and I are still trying to 'fight' Google/Blogspot about this and tryin gto get our domain name back, but again if we can't or are unable to we'll let you know if we buy a different new domain name. Thanks for understand and please would anybody let me know (if you happen to know yourself) if I need to add or adjust my blog address on the Follow Me Club spreadsheet?? Or Tess if you read this would you possibly be able to go in a nd change/adjust my blog address to read the one above that reads www.thelopezfour.blogspot.com??
Thanks!! And we still can't believe this has happend to us; it's been a very big disappointment and frustration to us with Google/Blogspot!!!
This is our blog button which you can find our grab code on our blog if you need to adjust it on your site (assuming you grabbed it awhile back). Again sorry for any inconvenience.
