My New Website Bites the Dust
No, I haven’t abandoned this blog, but my heart hasn’t been in it …. The last time I wrote, I mentioned that I was having a new website created.
The truth is that I was fleeced … the “new” website was a dummy – with just enough functionality to get paid. In other words, it was inoperable.
The strange thing is, I wasn’t as upset by the loss of money (although it was a significant sum — for me), it was the loss of faith in my fellow-man.
Two Things I Learned
My new hosting company suggested I use Elance to hire someone to do the work.
Looking over their site, Elance implies that the providers of services are vetted — they are not. It implies you are safe … you are not.
Second, they are powerless to do anything if the company you hire is dishonest. I hired “bc group” from India to do the work … and began a 6 week journey into misery.
Why Am I Telling You This
By sharing my naive wanderings into the world of website re-do’s, I hope you will never have this experience.
The Future Starts Tomorrow
It has taken a week to try to finish my business with Elance and decide what to do. By this time tomorrow, I will have hired a company to create my new website.
By this time tomorrow, I will have moved on … this is just an ugly bump in the road. Tomorrow will be so much better!
Come back tomorrow to see!
