When GoDaddy Doesn’t Call Anymore

No one from GoDaddy called like they promised today.
It’s like a bad date.

I am working on a re-design, so don’t give up on me yet.  It’s an ongoing saga to which I am sure my face is on some dart board in the GoDaddy design room.  Nothing like testing your product releases on the end user.

Adding HTML in my Sidebar is not working with the new GoDaddy redesign, so I must apologize to  my MyBlogLog readers as HTML changes are not showing on Godaddy’s sidebars.  I’ve recreated the widget and GoDaddy can’t recognize the HTML code.  Hopefully they will have this fixed by sometime in 2009 and I can actually show your faces again.

Keep checking back as I am sure I will get this all fixed at some point.


(Update: In early 2009 Catherine moved her blog off Godaddy to her own hosting service.  Godaddy didn’t send flowers or dark chocolate)

    I only use GODaddy for my websites, not for my blogs beacuse they are very limited. You should try WordPress or Typepad. I just switch to WordPRess and they are great.

    Thank you for all your comments. Since GoDaddy cannot bring back their portion of my old design, they have worked with me to come up with a solution. This current design is my own temporary fix, as GoDaddy is trying to bring me into a WordPress design. This would be great if the tool wasn’t so complex and followed the WordPress instructions. To say that I am completely lost in GoDaddy’s WordPress interface is a great understatement. At this point I don’t know what is going to happen as there is just no way I have the time or the programming engineers background to modify only in code. You’d all roll on the floor at my end result. My feeling is that GoDaddy’s developers “wag the dog” so to speek and there is no QA department of AVERAGE techies testing to make sure their interfaces are user friendly. I doubt they even have a “power users” group of clients willing to try their re-design and give feedback like many softare companies do… but then I am speaking from years of experience as a QA software person who trained loan officers. I know how bad a rollout can be with developers running the show. It’s where we coined the phrase “bleeding edge” technology. I have found so many bugs that it makes me glad I am not in GoDaddy’s customer support these weeks…
