I woke up earlier this morning to do some blogging. When I checked my blog, all the blood drained from my face.
I forgot to pay my hosting bills!
It was bad enough that my favorite blog was down. (Love your own. haha!)
But I got scared when I realized even my favorite online store was down. You know what I meant.*wink
So I hurriedly paid for the invoice, panicked some more when that didn’t fix it, called for support from my host, which finally restored all my sites. Whew!
The technical agent told me it usually goes back live ten minutes after payment. If that was true it was probably the longest ten minutes of my life.
So reminder to myself, always pay your hosting bills on time.
Same goes with your other bills – electricity, water, rent, GMF health insurance, etc. You might not like the feeling of paying bills but these are important in maintaining our quality of life so we just have to do it. Imagine not having to pay for electricity but enduring brownout. Nuff said!
