50 hours of my blog being down and we are BACK with a new URL. So if you were linking to pinkepost.com you now have to link to thepinkepost.com. pinkepost.blogspot.com redirects now to thepinkepost.com. It’s a long story that I don’t have answers too and I am still working on it. But pinkepost.com supposedly expired…even though I have a receipt that says it is paid for through 9/13/13. Someone else bought it the day it expired 9/13/12. Google has never answered my help ticket. GoDaddy can’t help. We’ll see if LeaseDomains.com cooperates and gives me back pinkepost.com. It shut off on October 25th.
Either way, I am still blogging. I probably will NOT be blogging forever on a blogger platform though and am going to work to switch this blog over to a more reliable format. Until then, we are here. ThePinkePost.com
48 hours of having no blog, no space in the fantastic world wide web made me pause. Do I want to keep blogging? Should I stop? Is this my end? Nearly 5 years of blogging and I just abruptly stop?
I started to blog for my family.

Lately I have been blogging less and have spent more time in offline endeavors. But it has reminded me of why I love blogging. Sure my blog “stats” have dropped. But I have a consistent little group of you that read this blog and it means a lot to me.
Then having my blog just SHUT OFF sent me into a tail spin.
After a few hours of commuting, a couple days of work, a night out with my daughters and husband, I can now clearly think today about my future of blogging.
I blog for family. For friends. Long time friends. Friends I have met through blogging. I blog for farming. To share my love for food. And as I have said before my faith and freedom are still part of my blogging.
My answer is NO to abruptly stopping blogging. No domain name interruption is going to stop me from sharing about my loves of the prairie, connecting with the many of you that I do right here or preventing me from keeping my sanity. Let’s face it. Blogging keeps me sane some days. It’s my outlet. I love it. I live it. And I guess I don’t always own it.
But today, I am right where I want to be. The Pinke Post. (I own that one.)
Welcome Back Friends. Welcome Back. I missed you.
