I’m a guest on Elizabeth H. Cottrell’s Small Biz Spoken blog

ELIZABETH HEADER

Elizabeth H. Cottrell’s Small Biz Spoken blog shares relationship marketing and customer connection strategies. I am a guest on the blog today with A cautionary tale – do you really own your domain name?

I thought TheWordShark.com was mine – until my web designer died. I did a lot of scrambling, waiting, and sweating while TheWordShark.com went through the expiration and auction block process.

Read my cautionary tale at Elizabeth’s fabulous Small Biz Spoken blog today!

      I’m always glad to demonstrate to others the errors of my ways! We learn by our mistakes, but learn too from the mistakes of others. I don’t think I would have given this all a second thought if it haden’t happened to me.

  2. Sounds like a real nightmare, Karen! Thanks for the practical tips on prevention.

      The whole name-change thing was a nightmare. You have no idea how all your stuff is linked by your name until you begin to change it. It took me months. And yes, worrying about losing TheWordShark…but all better now!
