My weekly newsletter is back

So a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I started a newsletter. For those who have been reading my blog for the last decade (damn I’m old, and I guess you are too!) you remember when my newsletter was a very regular thing. I kept adding new features, exclusive content, all kinds […]

So I officially suck at sending #Domainer shirts in the mail

For any of my readers who went to NamesCon this year, you got a shiny new #Domainer shirt. It was a blast connecting up with so many readers in Vegas and a lot of fun to walk around and see people wearing the shirt. For those who didn’t make it to NamesCon, I told you […]

A few birthday reflections and the one gift I really want

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!
