I took this photo on my iPhone yesterday, crazy how good phone cameras are now! Well, it’s official – I’m old. Today is my 38th birthday which means I am now officially closer to 40 than 35, yikes!

Go Daddy Ups Their WordPress Game with ThemeBeans Acquisition

I’ve been using WordPress for quite a while now, and as such, I have tried a lot of different themes over the years. In the early days of my blog I was a big fan of WooThemes, but over time they pivoted away from making themes for personal blogs like mine and instead focused on […]

I had some burning questions about .inc, here are the answers to them

One of the more recent new domain name extensions to launch is .inc, and I’ll be completely transparent in letting you know I don’t own any at the moment.

Will the launch of .DEV impact the value of .IO domain names?

Well it’s official, .DEV is here, and since the new registry is being run by Google, it’s safe to say there’s a nice marketing budget behind it. I personally think .DEV is a pretty solid extension for developers or anything dev-related and being three characters it’s short and very easy to remember. Before I go […]

Why I’m so excited about Rick’s Asheville Domainer Meetup

I went to book my hotel room for Rick Schwartz’s Domainer MeetUp in Asheville this summer and got an error. It turns out I’m not the only one because he actually sold out his first block of hotel rooms in the first 24-hours that they became available. Luckily another 45 rooms will come online soon […]

Selling domains outbound might provide better cashflow, but it likely means selling at lower prices

For some reason, a lot of the conversations I had at NamesCon are popping into my head this week. Maybe it just takes a few weeks after a conference for your brain to fully digest and process everything, or maybe I’m just weird…probably the latter but aren’t we all. Okay, now onto the topic at […]
