I believe I wrote a thing or two about that on the other site ...
But as I finish that last “don’t build websites anymore unless it’s REALLY something that pays me WELL and the client is someone I’d like with me long term” – I gotta say this.
And this will be of interest to said client “from Rwanda”, I believe, if I have got it right but I might not have ... who is no doubt reading this as I type this almost.
I have not one, or two websites. I got PLENTY, bro.
And I just got a new one up a while ago.
Anyway, on another front, I missed a payment for one of my BUSINESS websites.
The due date was around the middle of the month. My credit card wouldn’t work. It often doesnt due to a technicality that I had to contact the bank to sort out (Which to their credit they DID) ... but in the meantime I requested those guys to keep my site up and operational for 2 weeks more.
(to give me time to pony up)
(funnily enough or perhaps not – they gave me a discount that month for a great review I wrote for them. It was nice of them and entirely unexpected and the review was TRUE, so I wrote it. I certainly didnt expect any monetary return from it. Of course, life being what it is, I got the discount, but lost the ... ah, but we’ll get there).
They couldn’t give me the extra time.
Which I completely understand!
And AGREE WITH.
Let me repeat this.
I AGREE WITH THOSE GUYS.
And they, along with the folks I host THIS site on are the best damned host I’ve had the pleasure to work with in a long, long time. For many reasons! Oustanding support for one ...
So what did I do?
I didnt rant or rave. Piss or moan. OR whatever.
My card issue wouldn’t get sorted until the next month.
Waiting a month for the other site to be online would incur business losses.
I took it on the chin
Took a complete backup of my site BEFORE the account was “auto deleted”. And thats how to do it, my friend.
And bear in mind, this was just 2 weeks, not SIX MONTHS AND counting as a lot of these guys emailing me are delinquent for.
I have no idea why, but people seem to think “online = easy and turn on / off”.
If it were that easy?
Why not do it yourself, bro?
Ah I know.
How dare I say it?
But I did, because it’s TRUE.
Its about taking responsiblity, my friend.
And ignorance of the law (though honestly speaking there was no ignorance here – there was just you being “cheap”) does NOT mean you can openly flout the law and demand the right to do so.
Ain’t how it works pally.
And thats what I gotta say about that!
Before I go – taking responsbility for your PERSONAL fitness is obviously another major YES – or should be. Start by investing in the best damned fitness system (completely home based, and ZERO equipment of any nature required other than a floor) right here – the0 Excuses Fitness System.
PS – As for my own other site hosted with some other guys? I made a promise to the hosts that I’d be back with them, and I am. And I – as usual – cannot say enough good things about them. Professional and courteous – and great, great service. That is how it should be!
PS #2- The SAME Thing applies to those who “forget” to renew their SHIP membership, or “their card suddenly stops working”. Hey, I get it. Life is what it is. But life isn’t emailing me and demanding to be let back in without even a “mea culpa” of sorts. And guess what, chances are if you’re not genuine in the first place you will NOT be let back in ...
