This BLOG will be GONE in a Week time

Yes... you read it right! Well, sort of.

Yes, I will sooon lose this "domain" address [technically speaking] because yours truly is not a computer savvy.

I blog because I love writing and expressing my ideas and thoughts. But it doesn't necessarily mean that I am a computer genius. Though I know you don't have to be a computer genius to figure out how to set up a blog and buy a domain because I was able to do it in the first place but due to updates and other things that Google is trying to do with "god-only-knows-what" I am going to lose my precious domain because I don't know how to turn the "auto-renew" button.

As some of you [especially my virtual friends whom I met through this blog] I own this domain for more than 6 years now and losing it will surely hurt me because it bears my "name". But what can I do? I don't know how to prevent it because "Google's Help feature" can't help me at all. I find it really complicated and don't know how to sign in to my "Google Admin Console". For Pete's sake... I own 6 blogs that I even find hard to keep up with and 3 different email addresses [one is already dead because I totally forgot the UN and PW] so go figure if I can sign in to the said Admin Console of this blog. I can't even remember if I was able to create a domain email address forit in the first place.

So, yah... this may be my last post under the url address: www.ruthinian.com and after the 20th of this month, it will be back to its "blogspot" domain. hayzzzz. I just need to start over again. And yes, I am worried because I love this domain.

Unless! Somebody can tell me how to turn the "auto renew" button... or SOMEONE FROM GOOGLE CAN ACTUALLY TALK TO ME WITHOUT PAYING THEM!

I wish I know Ruthi, I fear also for my blogs with all these changes google is doing, haayst, no help to access at all, unless we sign up to business google apps which is very expensive. I am slowly thinking of moving my blogs to other host, but I don't know how :(

Hi Ruthi,

I'm in your shoes at this very moment with my domain Wandering Thought..

I've spent 2 days already looking for solution, but can't find any. Upon looking into my account, my domain is on auto-renew, and they had charged my account twice already, but I don't understand why the emails said my domain is expired.

Like you, Wandering Thought is my first blog-child..I'm so unsettling at the moment..
