During the past few days I have been obsessively working on a website for my soap business. I started out on Etsy. I love Etsy and the community of artists and crafters it connects me with but I began to feel that I needed wings. It was time for me to leave the nest and break out on my own. I will keep my Etsy shop but I am hoping that my main business will come through my website.
Interestingly when I went to register my domain name with google it did not turn out how I expected. Maybe it was the excitment, the speed at which my fingers were typing or because I was talking on the phone with my husband when I actually officially registered the domain name. So instead of registering oilandspicebath.com I registered oilandpicebath.com. I did not notice this until I kept typing in the proper web address only to continually find that it was not a valid website. Upon closer inspection I realized my error and bombarded Google with a borage of e-mails pleading with them to cancel my botched domain name. I'm sure the workers at Google Help got a great laugh as they deleted my pleas and moved on to the next request. They did not respond. Not even to say, "Hey, that's really funny. Jokes on you." Nothing...
So after waiting what I considered to be an eternity I went on with the process. Swallowed my pride and the $10 I just flushed and proceeded to register the right domain name.
So here it is: www.oilandspicebath.com
