Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday, Feb 2nd, 2018

Finally sold a domain yesterday.  It’s been a while but I figured if I keep making good decisions and doing good things then eventually I’ll sell something.  I did and one sold.  I’d tell you what I sold but I’ll save it for Sherpa.  Call it what you want Karma, God, whatever it is, I’ve been taken care of this week.

Someone emailed me and wondered with all this Africa talk if I was going to start trying to raise money for my charities.  The answer is no.  Not at this point. I have never asked anyone to donate money. The only time I ask is for someone else’s cause, not mine.  In 20 years I have never asked one person for a cent to help my causes.  I won’t let my daughter sell anything for a school or organization because I don’t want to impose on others while she tries to raise $25 for a field trip.  I have never felt right asking someone to give to my cause, to support my endeavors.  I feel like I am using my friendship, my relationship, or my position to force them to give.  If they don’t they feel guilty.  I have never wanted anyone to feel like they have to.  Putting my kid in the middle is even worse.   I always just bought whatever my daughter had to sell to avoid asking others.  And buying everything was a bit of a strain back in the early days.  I remember selling some stuff on eBay to try and buy 30 containers of cookie dough.  I cringe when I see my wife’s boss bringing in sales sheets to her place of work.  That’s as bad as it gets.  Asking subordinates to buy something.

I’m not saying that someone raising money or asking for money is bad.  I just struggle doing it.  I guess I have always hoped I make enough money that I can be like Gates or some other wealthy guy and do it on my own.  I know its not realistic but it’s worked so far. Just on a much smaller scale.  I’ve been able to give my time and some money and made my own little dent.  I’m not doing a good enough job myself so I see no need to ask someone else to help when I’m not doing all I can personally. Once I’m tapped out financially and time wise,  maybe them I will ask others to chip in.  Until then I will keep plugging away and like I said in the beginning paragraph, I feel confident that good things will happen as long as I keep running hard on a good path. Here are today’s names. They don’t work if you don’t click on them

Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   If you are going to own the .io you should own this    “Need capital?  Let Financing Solutions help you with your money needs” Free slogan     There are a lot of ways to make money.  Show them how here    No bids.  Good name to start an info site on forming and LLC   1 bidder.  Name says exactly what the site or company does   Lately it looks like the journey is to zero.  But the names are a good investment so far  Met reserve at $600    I get it that it is MBA’s but reserve is crazy    Cute.  Just how it sounds K-U-H-T   Met reserve and it’s not an unfair price  Great name but opening bid is a bit too high for me

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Its a dot net but a gorgeous keyword   Japanese word and name.  Also a nice   Figured this would be the biggest name on the board given the crowd   Getting great bids but just not sure anyone can spell it    I think the 11 is driving the price but not quite sure

Godaddy Names With Bids

All names chosen by me Shane, or Josh . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing. Everything I say is based on my own research or is opinion. Do your own due diligence. That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct. I hand choose my names but I am paid to make this list by the auction houses, individuals that are auctioning names, and Godaddy affiliate links. Keep that in mind and only buy names that YOU think are good

    I usually feel the same way for that sort of fundraising. But to be fair .. it really depends on the type of fundraising. There is a huge difference between asking for your daughter’s field trip .. and asking to help support doctors in Africa. Your daughter actually is somewhat your cause (otherwise you would have to spend the money) .. but helping the health of Africans is not “your cause” .. it’s a cause you support. I really don’t see the harm in say, after your full write up of your trip the other day saying something like “Click here to go to Doctor’s Without Borders” type of thing.
    Back when I had my huge DJ/Music community I didn’t really have much in terms of ads as I was focusing on growth (which actually is what killed me because of the monstrous bandwidth needs that just exploded too fast as I grew) .. but I did put up charity links .. I think it was to “thehungersite” and “therainforestsite” .. or something like that .. they certainly made many thousands from the traffic I sent them of that time.

    OK .. now on to the on-topic stuff. I deliberately didn’t say anything in the comments or discussions until after the auction .. because I DID notice how even though it was listed in the NameJet list on the last Sherpa .. there was (too conveniently) no discussion of .. lol. But now that it’s over .. when are you going to spill the beans on whether you got it or not? I’m thinking at the price it hit it wasn’t a bad buy .. but that you likely would have passed it up as not being a super bargain (Drew just skews all semblance of realistic pricing with the insane 1-word for $5k buys he’s shared on Sherpa .. lol) .. and more importantly that it was above the threshold you’ve mentioned in the past that you usually have cash-on-hand for. So my guess at first would have been that you didn’t get it … buuuuut … you did say you bought a domain with partners .. and I did see a certain “like” somewhere .. so I’m not so sure anymore! lol
    Either way .. based on your hinds and posts, you clearly don’t intend to keep it a secret for that long .. so I don’t feel bad posting this publicly .. lol
