My official, paid for, custom designed blog and website randomly disappeared a few weeks ago. With no warning, Wordpress highjacked it because I choose not to update to the latest WP version due to my fear it would totally mess up my custom design. So, they placed a disable code into the html. The WILL restore it if - I agree to update and I PAY THEM a restoration fee of $50.00.
NO WARNING. just poof! gone. No apologies, no pity, no consideration that it is a business site. I cannot access my blog posts to repost here on Typepad. So, while we are figuring this whole thing out, I've redirected my www.brendapinnick.com to this site. I may just stay here... I would like to get my content back but the whole $50. to do so does not sit pretty with me at all. In fact, it makes me very, very angry with WordPress. I think they've gotten WAAAAAAAAY to big for their britches as my Mom used to say. So, if you are blogging or webhosting with a WP format - beware. ( I have always loved Typepad but wanted my site and blog together in one place so agreed to WP as the format ).
Here is a video I posted on the old blog. It wasn't necessarily done as a teaching class. I made it mainly to show my artist friends what I had discovered while trying a new product by mixing it in with existing work. There was a snarky comment left on youtube which reflected an attitude of entitlement to free information. Not all videos posted on youtube are meant to be a free class....hmmmmph. Anyway, if you enjoy this, please comment. thanks!
