Will someone give me a break pulllleeeaasssszzz? I’ve had my fair share of crazy this year.
You may have noticed the blog and domain name change this week. Wednesday evening I received an email from Go Daddy stating a Trademark Dispute had been put on my blog and I had 24 hours to remove anything containing the words skinny life on the site. I was told I could keep the domain. But why would I have a site name that doesn’t match the domain? That’s like going to Target’s website and having to type something other than target in the URL.
After consulting legal advice, I had a choice to make – counter dispute or re-brand. I opted for the later because I want to grow into my own business eventually and I do not want my brand to be confused with someone else’s.
So instead of going to BlogHer, I used my vacation to remove everything, re-brand and fix my social media. Those two words, skinny & life were embedded everywhere – in my email address, facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest links, website header, recipes, pictures, etc.
I never anticipated this risk or expected Go Daddy to have a poor process for handling it. Everything is vague & done via email You are told to remove everything or else. The good news is everything is switched over. I can now focus on protecting my new site. eating real food again, sleeping and taking showers.
