A few months ago I celebrated 10 years of DomainShane now DSAD.com. It’s been an amazing journey. I didn’t make a big deal about it because I have enough pride in it that I don’t need affirmation or pats on the back. I’ve gotten more out of it personally than I’ve given so in some senses I feel guilty. Some of my best friends are people I met in this industry as well as the only enemies I have in the world. By enemies I mean people that despise me and I have no feelings either way about them because I don’t really know them. I’ve made hundreds of thousands of dollars in domains over the 10 years but more importantly I’ve used this column as an emotional release. I’ve shared the raising of my daughter and her growing up and the rest of my family saga. I’ve brought my Mom to conferences. And I’ve made some good and bad jokes. But most importantly I learned and grew in this profession into someone that knows what the Hell they’re doing. I have missed less than 20 days in 3650 nights of writing. I used to do it all by myself but I know have friends like Travis, Josh, Mike, and Aaron joining me so its a piece of cake.
So thank you all for coming by each day. At some point it will end but not in the near future. I hope you all have gotten something out of it but if you didn’t I don’t really care because you only lost a little time. 🙂 On to the regular scheduled program
