Google is threatening my blog (again)

I just wanted to ask everyone who reads this blog to please follow Michaela's page on Facebook, at https://www.facebook.com/MichaelaJoyGarecht/. I originally purchased the domain name for DearMichaela.com directly through blogger, which is owned by google. This was a long time ago, and google has changed the way they do things since then. I get a notice pretty much annually saying that they are going to cancel my domain name if I don't take various actions, and over the years I have found it impossible to take those actions, because the foundation of my account is different from what they use now.

I will admit, I am no tech genius, but still. The really frustrating thing is that there seems to be no way to contact any people from google. This isn't the only problem I have had with them that I have needed help with, and help just is not available. My newer blog is through wordpress, which seems a bit more user friendly, and if I could I would probably export this entire blog over there, but that would take someone much smarter than I. And the last time I tried to terminate my use of a domain name on one a yahoo site and purchase it for use elsewhere, even though I had placed an auction on godaddy before the expiration, someone else purchased it and put it up for sale for an exorbitant amount of money.

The point is that if anything happens to the domain name of this blog, I will post it on Michaela's facebook so you will be able to find it. The original name of this blog was, I believe, www.thewonderingheart.blogspot.com, and it would probably work to reach this site as well.

Thanks to those of you who continue to visit my blog, and to love Michaela. It means a lot to me, and to Michaela, wherever she is.

God bless.
