Greetings friends and fellow wordsmiths!
I just need some input here please.
I’ve been paying for my wordpress domain name for a few years now and I’m beginning to wonder why?
This time when the notification came, I thought I might just let it go. Presuming it’ll just go back to the old address I had before I began to pay – thepoliticalvagina/wordpress.com I think it was.
When I began this blog, I didn’t pay for quite a long time. Some part of me was stoked with myself at creating such a cool blog name or something but I didn’t understand (and still don’t) the benefit of paying for a domain name.
The emails I recieve from WordPress, say my followers wont find me if I don’t have the http://thepoliticalvagina.com/ address. Is this true?
I’m kind of ready to move on from this name and begin another but I don’t want to lose touch with the lovely people who come to visit and comment.
There are a couple of reasons.
1. Once upon a time, I myself was squeamish about the word “Vagina” – so when I began this blog it was my attempt to face that squeamishness and to challenge others and understand just why people are?
2. Vagina’s and politics is so ……..(I’m struggling to express here)
3. Some people are still offended and embarrassed if I comment (OK one person in particular, an old school friend) and my blog name is there in their comments. I wanted to make a statement not embarrass or hurt people.
Do you pay for yours?
If so why and can you tell me the benefits please?
I’ve got six day before I run out of time to pay.
What will happen if I don’t?
Will you still find me?
