My post about my favorite things turned out to be a dud. Actually most of my posts turn out to be duds if you look at them from the comment standpoint. It’s part of writing to a small group. It takes something controversial or particularly interesting to a reader to have someone comment. But I never let it bother me. After doing this for over a decade I realize that people can still enjoy what you do without necessarily saying that each day. I know people are reading because months later someone will say something in reference to what I wrote. I also get texts and emails commenting or asking questions about posts as well. But I know I babble on at times and I’ve lost my interest in calling other domain people asshats by name which takes away some of the commentary. The problem is everyone knows who the asshats are so its not necessary to say anything anymore. Things have been established.
Looking back at the year with a month left, it was an unusual year overall. I lost 5 or 6 sales over $500 -$1000 because I wouldn’t budge. It was over $50,000 in sales I could have had. I’m comfortable that I’ll sell all those domains later at even higher than I asked later but ending the year with an extra 50K in the bank would have been nice. Godaddy reduced commissions 33% this year so our commissions were way down this year. Add in the fact that we just didn’t have the click through purchases that we usually have. Enough to keep writing, but not quite the incentive of the past few years. It doesn’t help that many of the Godaddy names are now going for much higher than the average person is going to spend on a domain. And commissions come in ebbs and flows so we’ll just keep trying to entertain the best we can. I’ll keep writing about where I’m going and what I’m doing and you can figure out if its interesting enough to read . You can always just scroll down to the names and see if there was something you missed during your checks. And heck, maybe I’ll call someone out and kick up the comment section again for old time sakes.
