Goodbye Dianny Tees

Goodbye Dianny Tees

After five years in business, I decided to close down Dianny Tees permanently.

This fall, the guy who hosted both DiannyTees.com and PatriotRetort.com passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.

Charles was a good man and a great web partner.  He was unfailingly kind, very patient and extremely good at what he did.  And the five years I worked with him I wouldn’t trade for anything.

After his passing, the sites he hosted were automatically transferred to his business partner.  We had the option to remain with him starting in 2019, but at the hosting rates he offered. 

Charles gave me insanely low hosting fees for both my sites. Like I said, he was unfailingly kind. And it was inevitable that those low fees wouldn’t last going into 2019.

As a result, I decided that PatriotRetort.com will remain with Charles’ partner.  But given the increase in hosting fees, I really can’t afford to continue Dianny Tees as well.  It also seemed illogical to continue the site since screen printing has become increasingly difficult for me because of my Lupus.

Over the last year, I really dialed back on advertising or promoting Dianny Tees because of my health.  And since I stopped promoting it, the majority of hits on the site were webcrawlers from Google or Amazon Technologies.  So instead of waiting until the end of the year, I asked that Dianny Tees be taken offline today.

I’m a little bummed.  But it’s for the best.

If I’m lucky, I can find a buyer for my screen printing equipment and supplies.  If for no other reason than I can get my dining room and spare bedroom back.

I do want to thank the PatriotRetort.com readers who have ordered T-shirts from Dianny Tees over the years.  It was very much appreciated.

And as a last hurrah, I will be offering a Dianny Tees “Team Deplorable” shirt as a raffle prize during PatriotRetort.com’s End of Year Fundraiser at the end of this month.

    Hey Dianny, is the shutting down of the diannytees.com website in any way linked to the [email protected] email address? I tried reaching out last week regarding the upcoming Christmas Holiday and haven’t heard back from you. It’s not like you not to respond, even if it were just to give me a piece of your mind (as I’ve occasionally deserved!), unless there’s a problem with the email address or you’re (hopefully not) otherwise overwhelmed.

      No, the Dianny Tees website was unrelated to the PR email address. But I don’t remember getting that email. Maybe you should send it again.
