Desert Rat Preppers is no more.
« on: June 09, 2019, 12:27:57 PM »
 I just wanted to notify everyone that my website desertratpreppers.com no longer exists.  After a whole year Iíve pretty much been dead and no activity, I decided not to waste anymore time or money on it.  All I have left is a small  Desert rat preppers group on Facebook which consists of mostly West Texas folks.  I plan to start livening up this website and coming over here more often now.

 So for those of you that were advertising my website on your sites and blogs you can go ahead and remove it.  I thank you all for the support and Advertisement of my website.

Sorry it did not work out, Drago. I noticed you went dark a week or two ago, so I changed the link on Off Grid Ham to send readers to your new Facebook page.

I know from personal experience that it can cost big $$ to run a website, so if there's no action, then yeah, decisions need to be made.

This past winter I shelled out about $300 to upgrade Off Grid Ham to add security features and automatic backups. This is on top of what it was already costing me to run the site. These will be yearly, recurring costs  :o

I don't mind so much doing it as long as OGH continues to be successful. I found out the hard way that the more popular your website is, the more security you need.

Thanks for all your efforts. We'll see you on the other side.

Yep been there thinking about that.

Trying to come up with some cost-effective means of getting traffic back here.
The only dumb question is the one that did not get asked!!

 Well itís clear to me that social media sites have killed the private website.  I just remembered you have a Facebook page for prepared ham.  Maybe we should start using it.  I know the Ham Radio Go Box group on Facebook is full of activity.

You may be right about FB.
