A Novice Blogger Slip Up. Lost My URL to a Stranger.On March 4, 2018 by prettytildawn
A long, long time ago, a man without a face, collecting popular website domains, was waiting in the shadows for a novice blogger to slip up, and she did. Faceless took something very special from me, my domain “PrettyTilDawn“.
I invested in a professional to design and manage set up of my site. My supposedly knowledgeable expert didn’t set up the content back-up feature and everything was deleted.
Why me? I’m nobody. Who the heck would want my unknown website. then I freaked out, cursed up a storm and damned him. There are a million sites out there, who the heck cares about this one?
Of course I found value in it and thought my content could reach a large audience someday. Unexpected opportunities would occur, such as I was approved to shoot designer showcases at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, including as L.A.M.B., Custo Barcelona and Phillip Lim. I also received backstage access and a press badge to Couture Fashion Week. This struck me a valuable since I didn’t have any industry references, very little content and no connections. I was basically a no-name slipping through the fashion industry cracks.
For years I would check GoDaddy.com just to see if my domain was released. Repeatedly the buy-back price would climb. I was told, since it means so much to you, just buy it back. But Aries don’t play that. I wasn’t letting a thief profit off my naivety! So I did what a true Aries would do, waited him out for what was mine.
On January 1, 2018, at the crack of “dawn”…
I, Dawn Fitch-Mitch aka PrettyTilDawn aka Carmel Barbie aka mother of a photographer/ copywriter and a game designer was reunited wtih “PrettyTilDawn” for $11.99.
Keep on top of your business, pay attention to time and plan for your rebirth and don’t ever give up on what you want.
