I have been thinking about getting a new domain name for this blog. Years ago, I lost a previous domain name for NewEpistles but didn’t have time to blog anyway. Now, I’ve been thinking it still might be good to have a dedicated one that is free from WordPress’ secondary free domain. I’m debating whether to switch. I really don’t blog much but I’ve have had more time to blog more than usual while I’ve been vacationing here in Taiwan these several weeks (but returning today).
Some of my old readers may not know that I’ve lost the old domain name of NewEpistles.com so they think the blog is down. After not having posted for a period of time, I neglected to renew the domain so I apologize for this. I don’t know if I can get back the domain name of NewEpistles.com. Google told me they emailed me but it was to an old email address that I haven’t checked for years. Someone else has now picked it up and it’s a generic website until they can find a buyer. They said I had to pay another $80 and still go through more hassle to get it back. It might not be worth it. It will be here now at NewEpistles.WordPress.com for the forseeable future, or at least until I can find another domain name that I like.
So my advice if you’re a blogger: keep on top of your domain renewals and renew for 5 years at a time if possible, rather than annually.
