It is GONE! My mothermade.org website has vanished into nothingness! Talk about depressing, Zoloft stole my domain name (that is one way to get my business) Really. They did. They had it back ordered and stole it right out from under me the minute it expired.
MotherMade.org is gone... Done for good!
This is so weird and sad and pitty in my stomach--but I also kinda think it is weirdly perfect at the same time.
So here is the story.
Just yesterday I registered the domain name RobinCarlisle.com because I was going to have a weby all to myself for my art, to be a bit more profesh all on my own... And that was it, that is all I did. I was on there... Do-did-de-do... Everything seemed FINE my mothermade HOSTING didn't expire until June so I thought we were good to go until then and I still had a bit of time before I had to renew it. Unannounced to me, the domain name it's self had just expired I mean JUST EXPIRED! Like I was on the MM site just minutes before hand and all was well! Because it had just expired there was no alert or any indication that I no longer had possession of said domain name. I thought because I had the hosting for it, I must also have the address it's self.
WRONG! (if you go there, to MotherMade.org) you will see this was not the case.
I had no intention of getting rid of MotherMade, I had planned on doing both the MM and RC websites.
I was a little bit dreading that, another spoon another pot feeling, but there was NO WAY I could just start RobinCarlisle.com and terminate MotherMade. To be honest, I was not fully invested in MM, but I did still love it and thought I could hack running both sites. Mainly I just didn't have the heart to walk away from MotherMade. It would have been like putting down an old horse.
But clearly my true intentions were made very clear! The day I ordered up my own website... Mothermade expired out from under me! I actually think it is truly amazing! Because it is what I knew I wanted. But couldn't quite do yet... And I didn't have to. The universe (and Zoloft) did it for me!
With a little help from Zoloft I know I am going to be much happier!
