Should I Continue to Invest in This Domain Name? Is That a Thing? (Was It Ever?)
I’ve been planning to GET RICH QUICK by launching a website for, oh, ages. (Also: THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN, FYI.) (LIKE, NOT EVEN IN THE SMALLEST TINIEST BIT.) (FACEBOOK WAS JUST THIS WEIRD THING THAT HAPPENED, TOTAL ANOMALY.) (ALSO, IT WAS A THING AND NOT A BLOG, BUT LET’S NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN SEMANTICS.)
Anyway: This is one of the many domain names I own and that I now need to make a decision about! I believe this one was purchased during a moment when I thought: “I know, I’ll start a website about helping people and monetize it somehow, and even if I don’t end up doing that, this is such a brilliant URL that someone will surely approach me at some point and buy it.” The “monetize it somehow” part is really the crux of the thing. Also the “starting the website.” Also the certainty that this is worth something.
Really, the easiest part of the whole process is buying the domain name. I was going to just leave it and see what happened (would it auto-renew? Would it auto-cancel? Suspense!) but I just realized that it’s probably connected to one of my credit cards, so I’m logging in right now and getting rid of this thing. (I’ll never let go of FUNDSIES.com though. NEVER.) (But I will switch its auto-renew to my debit card.)
