Do you get a ton of emails every day from places that you ignore? Like if you buy one single thing on a website, then you constantly get emails from them every day? I bought cigars for my dad over a year ago and if you looked at my inbox you’d think I was a chain-smoker cigar addict. Then, of course, the cigar website passed my info to other smoking sites because I gets emails for pipes now. But not cool hipster bong pipes — more like old-timey pipes with the subject line of the emails saying things like “Buy two corn-cob pipes get one free!”
I let these emails go for a while because I find unsubscribing so tedious. I wait until my inbox is stuffed with nothing but ads like “Fruitcake sampler 40 percent off!” (a Christmas gift, don’t ask) and then I spend an hour of my precious time on Earth unsubscribing to these sites.
This brings me to my point — I totally ignored the “It’s time to renew your blog” email. It just looked like another annoying email to me and the more I saw it, the more I ignored it. Who is this “Go Daddy” and why are they bothering me? I don’t remember buying anything from a Go Daddy website.
Oh wait, I did buy something from them — my entire Riot Ranch website!
So they just ripped my site off the internet. I don’t blame them, of course. I blame the cigar website. They took me over the edge.
Oh well. I’m back. I’m kind of embarrassed. I’ll just have to smoke my corn cob pipe until I feel better.
(Talk to you soon.)
