Sometimes it seems time really does fly. Like when I get these emails
Each year, it kind of sneaks up on me, this domain renewal date. But then WordPress throws a year or two out there – five and six in this case – and suddenly it seems like it’s been way longer.
They are congratulating me on four years of blogging on AtLeastIHaveAFrigginGlass and looking forward to (payment for) my sixth-tenth. The reason it seems way longer is actually…reality. It has been way longer. I’ve only just been paying for my domain for five years. There were a couple years before that where I blogged on WordPress without paying for the .com – and even a couple years waaay back where I blogged on blogspot.
So there’s some history, to be sure. However, as WordPress sends me a renewal warning, I’m wondering if I should just shut it down or recommit.
My more popular blog buddies swear routine is the key to their blog’s success. My blogging has been rather…haphazard. Most of last year, I think I was lucky to average a post a week – as a matter of fact, most of my posts for last year were likely concentrated in January, thanks to my self-challenge to post daily to start the new year off.
Maybe committing to a posting structure would help?
If you ask Zuckerberg, he’d suggest boosting my posts on his portfolio of social media sites.
Yeah, for sure not doing that.
Then again, that warning email ended thusly
And that left me feeling like WordPress was playing Zuck’s game and really only wanted my money. I mean, if you’re going to send a form letter – could it not come from the CEO and not an Associate?
