Where have all the domain blogs gone? As everyone knows, May is a tough month for me to write and I don’t have much time to read the blogs. But lately it really hasn’t mattered. We’re pretty much down to DomainInvesting, TheDomains, DomainGang, OnlineDomains and DomainIncite. Morgan is busy with FashionMetric and has written more about Python than his domain buys and sales. Raymond Hackney writes for everyone else and his home blog is down to a daily sales list and now a Godaddy affiliate list. Mark Hershiser has gone on long hiatus. Jason Thompson is now pure cybersecurity, and the rest pop up every once in a while but nothing consistent. This isn’t a criticism of ANY blog. We all get busy. This blogging stuff is hard. Especially if you’re looking to try and make a living at it. And why wouldn’t you build a business instead of blogging? Aaron wrote a post yesterday about his acquisitions and it reminded me that it’s been pretty much down to Elliot and Konstantinos when it comes to acquisition, sales, and overall personal daily life domaining stories now. Francois of Domaining.com never said this directly but it had gotten so sparse that he added 3rd party domain articles to fill the feed with stories. I don’t know that is really the reason but I bet it had something to do with it. Yes, there are some that come out every once in a while and write some fantastic stuff, like Eric Borgos, but they aren’t as often as they used to be. Maybe I was newer 7 years ago and had more to learn so I found everything more interesting. But I do think some of the people that wrote the great articles have gone on to other things. It’s also why Aaron and I joined together. Because we both have other careers we knew that together we wrote an acceptable site where solo we didn’t provide enough quality content. But as long as Elliot and Michael keep it up I’ll keep reading. Here are today’s names
