Not really, though. It seems like there is always something new to do in this industry. I, however, have gotten very fast in my daily investing activities. Lately, you might’ve seen a lot more of me on the domain name forum NamePros. However, I first started on the now infamous DNForum. I’ve also attempted to contribute to the discussions of other fellow bloggers… with no avail. That, though, is another story for another day. Don’t worry, I will get to it, though.
Since I have my working hours down to a tee, I can focus a lot of time and energy elsewhere. I love being behind the computer and interacting with people. More so, I love helping people realize and achieve their goals in the domain name industry. Additionally, I am a strong advocate for those just beginning to invest in domain names; you can see that from my earlier harsh postings directed towards Troy Rushton and others.
There are too many people out there trying to make a quick buck off of you, and that, I don’t like. At all. These are the people that I will call out on this blog as I am censored to do so elsewhere; it’s considered antagonistic to object to another opinion or idea these days.
If you’re new to the industry, just be aware, there are many types of investors. There are those who also invest time to try to rip you off.
Nothing on here will ever be censored, unlike some other blogs. Say what you want here, the comments won’t be rejected if you have a differing opinion. Maybe, just maybe, I can learn something new from you.
Even though I purchased my first domains in the late 90s to early 2000s – which have since dropped, been picked up by Michael Berkins’ MostWantedDomains, and subsequently sold to GoDaddy’s NameFind – I started heavily investing in 2008 after my time in the Armed Forces. I learned my way around the ropes quickly. I had to. Because of my experience, I have a lot to share, so bear with me.
I will most likely do it through this channel as it seems as if investors are turning their noses away from forums and focusing on what bloggers have to say. That, and there is a very thin line of what I can, and can’t, say on NamePros without being censored – despite whether NamePros agrees to it being censorship or not.
Some time in 2013 to 2014, I wrote a couple articles for DomainGang and was known there as the Gaijin-san Domainer due to my locality of Japan. This series was a blend of domain names, humor, and investing from abroad. Soon thereafter, Eric Lyon of NamePros invited me to write for them. I ended up writing several dozen articles, to include beginning their Top Topics series, for them beginning in late 2014 before finally throwing in the towel to focus on other goals.
As time goes by, and this site develops and matures, I may introduce a unique series of my own here. It seems like every blog has their place, and in time, I will find mine. So, stay tuned.
