Some of you may have noticed the Dangling Pentacles blog is down. I had purchased the domain, but wrongly thought that when the subscription ran out, the title would revert to one of the URL’s that included the word ‘wordpress’ in it. It does not. To renew now would cost me more than setting up a self-hosted blog on another hosting company’s server (like my ddsyrdal.com blog on Bluehost). They want $106 to reinstate it. Ain’t happening. I’m gambling on the domain name being released for registration, which apparently may never happen, but if it does, I’ll re-up it then for $26. Failing that, I will be setting up another blog, as yet unnamed, for my Tarot site. Annoying, but what can you do? My fault for thinking it would simply revert the title to a free WordPress blog.
So, danglingpentacles.com may or may not be back. If I don’t get it back, I’ll have to think of something else. My apologies to my readers, and handful of subscribers. With luck, DanglingPentacles will be back, but if not the content will return at least. I’ve exported the files and will import them to the new blog when the time comes.
