Categorized | Domaining Tips Is 5 Years Old!

Posted on 01 February 2013 by Andrei

On the 31st of January 2008, the previous owner (a very nice guy btw) published the first post. About a year and a half later, yours truly took over. Approximately three and a half years later, here we are 🙂

The #1 “perk” being a blogger comes with is the fact that you get to know a lot of amazing people.

I consider myself an entrepreneur as well as a domainer and, without a doubt, helped me get the best of both worlds.

If we ever worked together or at the very least exchanged thoughts via email, I’d like to take advantage of this opportunity and say thank you!

If you were ever offended by one of my posts, I’d like to take advantage of this opportunity and apologize.

It’s been a wild ride and I can assure you that the future will be anything but boring.

We’re involved in an industry that didn’t even exist 20 years ago, history has been written and will continue to be written right in front of our eyes.

The best thing about it? We can and will be a part of it all!

This is, without a doubt, the #1 opportunity of our generation.

Don’t want to turn this post into a novel, so let me just end it by once again thanking you guys and letting all of you know that running is a privilege!

    @Acro: thanks and congrats!

    Congrats and keep up the good work. I can tell you’ve become a little busier though because your articles have become more tweetlike and double spaced. The exact opposite of Rick’s 🙂

    @Shane: one of the weirdest things I’ve noticed as a blogger is that a lot of times, the # of comments and the length of the article are inversely related.

    It’s happened to me on several occasions – I write this huge article, lots of info, lots of data, you name it. The best article in the world, just waiting to be admired in all its glory, waiting to be praised and receive international or even intergalactic recognition. And nobody or ok, almost nobody comments.

    And then the next day, I write a short post and it gets lots of comments 🙂

    Comments don’t make a good article, it makes us bloggers feel better, but doesn’t make it good. Most people DON’T comment even though they enjoy the time and effort that go into those long, well written, well researched, articles. If you ask people for their opinions or comments at the end of the article I can guarantee you’ll get hardly any comments. Ron Jackson writes the best stuff in the space and he doesn’t even have a comment section. I totally understand why you don’t write much anymore, my blog is the same, we’re busy trying to be the article not write it

    Congrats !!!

    @Shane: IMO, a comment can often enhance the article, since people are putting their own experience on the table or contributing with additional info but I agree, it’s not something that makes an article good in and of itself, I’d say a good comment and a good article are complementary.

    I’ve reached the conclusion that a lot of times, making the article longer isn’t necessary and by not constantly thinking that an article always *has* to be very long (in some cases, it has to be long but in other cases like when I’m blogging about a coupon, a long post wouldn’t make sense), writing no longer seems like a chore or something that puts pressure on you, it’s actually a lot more fun.

    Wham bam thank you ma’am 🙂
