After what I announced last night, after coming across my email regarding the price for personal plan this blog is currently set as, I felt I needed to email them at WordPress. I have never emailed them before, but after sleeping on what I discovered and announced last night, after making my decision that wasn’t hard to make, I felt I needed to air my thoughts to them. This was my email:
When I first signed up for a domain at £36, although this was expensive to me, I was happy to pay for my own domain for a blog that I just write for personal. Especially when I have been happy with WordPress. But after an email yesterday that it tells me it’s going up to £58 when I add the total combined, I wasn’t able to condone or afford that price for something I don’t earn money from.
If the price was reflected from the start of what it goes up to, I would never have bothered and kept it just as a free domain. I feel I have been duped and I am not happy. This should have been clearly explained from the start, like other websites do. And no, I am not paying to avoid the hike when I don’t know what lies ahead in price. I don’t want to be airing a new domain for nothing.
As you know, I cancelled my subscription the minute I received that email and my readers have been informed what will be happening to my blog.
