2018 Sept 05 – 682 Closeout Domains

Really nice having more people slowly contacting to say hello and thanks. Also note that now you can post comments at the bottom of each daily list. If you have any comments on the names or patterns or anything else I’ve discussed, then please go to the bottom and say a word. The first time you post I need to moderate it (an anti-spam feature), but it shouldn’t be too long before I do (and respond). Happy closeout hunting! 🙂

2018 Sept 02 – 307 Auction Domains

I’ve noticed an increase of immediate closeout snipping again on some of the better domains that didn’t get bids. GoDaddy has done some changes and I think the bots have finally adjusted. Or maybe it’s simply a new player (or someone who was on vacation) coming back into auctions who also goes deep into the expiration lists. Either way, what used to be “under the radar” domains that used to slip through that I could grab at closeout, are now being snipped. Maybe it’s a good thing as it’ll keep my portfolio from getting too much larger! lol

Went for a monster walk with Steamie yesterday. Here steamed Hot Dogs are locally referred as “Steamies” (even in French), so Steamie made for a perfect name for a Dachshund! Some of you might already follow him at SteamieTheHotDog.com (forwards to a simple FB Page) .. but his name is a perfect example of a bad domain name .. as whenever I say it to people I have to specify it’s Steamie as opposed to Steamy! Either way he’s the cutest dog in the world though!

All the way at the bottom is a place for you to leave your comments. Please feel free to do so whether it’s to comment on my words here .. or on the domains in the lists .. or to tell Steamie how cute he is! lol

2018 Sept 02 – 655 Closeout Domains

I try to wait as long as possible in the morning to post the Domains at Auction list so that the number of bids is as up to date as possible. But I don’t have that factor with the closeouts list so I can post them earlier. The earlier the better for all of you as you get more time to buy them before anyone else (all the losers who don’t read my blog .. lol). I’m still trying to figure out when to post closeouts, but it’s nice having one less thing to worry about in the morning.

2018 Sept 01 – 336 Auction Domains

Yesterday I recycled my old Commodore 64! I spent hundreds if not thousands of hours on that thing, but hadn’t touched it in well over 20 years. I’ve gotten really good at not acquiring too many new things .. but it still is hard getting rid of old stuff. Over the last few days I also catalogued and tossed out a bunch of old comic books that got damaged in the flooding. Some old 1980’s Spiderman and X-Men and some other cool valuable ones. I hadn’t touched them in just as long as my C64. So moved them all 2-3 times between places I’ve lived since. One part of me feels a little good getting rid of some clutter .. but the other side of me is nostalgic and is upset at losing part of my youth.

I think a lot of us domainers likely have a very similar connection to our domains. Where some of them we know will never be used by anyone .. yet we still hang on to them and renew them instead of letting them drop. I’ve been “officially” domaining almost 2 years now, and let some of my earliest acquisitions drop almost a year ago. It’s getting to the point where I’m still happy with most of my acquisitions from last year at this time and I’m letting almost no domains drop anymore. After yesterday I hope Continue reading “2018 Sept 01 – 336 Auction Domains”
