Because I Like to Make Your Life Difficult
In addition to the challenges of finding a car and finding an apartment, acclimating to humidity and suffering through New Jersey freeways, I have also dealt with the pain-in-the-ass-ness that is Yahoo! Web Hosting.
A few weeks ago I decided to switch to Wordpress. I thought it would be easy. I have a domain, I'll just get Wordpress to forward it like Blogger does.
Wordpress doesn't forward. It wants the URL to forward to Wordpress.
So that's what I attempted to do.
In fact, in the process of attempting to get Yahoo to forward to Wordpress, I managed to permanently sever the link between Yahoo and Blogger, which is why Lemonade Life suddenly reverted back to the blogspot.com address.
Except, the Yahoo service that I chose doesn't allow domain forwarding, although it's one of the most basic things you can do. Instead, I had to switch service plans.
Which I have been attempting to do for the last week.
Each time I attempt to do it, I get a technical error. It tells me to call customer service, but I'm at work and busy and don't have time. Meanwhile, it has charged me nine times for an order it claims to have canceled.
So I give up.
I have gone to GoDaddy.com and ordered a brand-spanking-new URL that is still Lemonade Life related so hopefully it won't be too hard to remember.
It's: www dot lemonade dash life dot com.
All will work.
I am sorry to make everyone change their links again, but I am fed up with Yahoo and it's crappy service. Besides, GoDaddy is vastly cheaper than the service I currently have, which as a starving entry-level workerbee, I desperately, desperately need.
Apologies again but, uh, deal.
