So I did a little playing on the Internet today and do you know what I discovered?
I can’t buy the domain for EITHER of my blogs.
That’s right. Now, I’ve known for awhile that streetcake.com was taken (when I started the blog I looked into just buying the domain but of COURSE it was already taken). But do you know what happens when you go to streetcake.com? You go to a GoDaddy page with links to cake-related sites. Some stupid squatter wrecked my hope of getting my own domain with the actual name of my blog.
And then today I looked into getting shenaniganist.com. Shenaniganist, if you’ll recall, is basically a made-up word. I mean, it’s not even on UrbanDictionary, it can’t be real, right? (you’re noting my sarcasm, yes? Good.) And yet, it’s been taken. And do you know where that takes you? It’s a re-direct to a vimeo page and that is beyond irritating. I swear people get online, scroll the blogs, and then buy the domain names before the actual bloggers can just to be irritating.
So again, my message to squatters: I hate you. A lot. Get a life.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go come up with another suitable domain name. Augh!
