August has been a fairly bad month in terms of domain sales for me, as I mentioned before. Thankfully the rest of the year has been (somewhat surprisingly) very good. Maybe it’s the summer doldrums, the economic slowdown, or perhaps I am investing more cautiously, which generally yields lower results.
I really shouldn’t be complaining though. I read that a whopping 309 people recently applied for a Library Assistant position in Tacoma, Washington, an hourly job that pays a wage of between $15.81 to $19.23. This one position had over 300 applicants, and the post had to be taken down a week or two earlier than normal.
Each time I’ve thought about this month’s sales figures, I’ve seen articles like the one I mentioned where people are desperate for work. Domain investing may not be easy any more, it has significant risks, and it’s not always exciting. However, investing in domain names can provide a very good steady income and opens the door to other opportunities.
If it wasn’t for these economic conditions, I probably wouldn’t have built many of my website, which are poised to become independently operated businesses and revenue streams.
This month might be a bad one in terms of domain investments and sales for me, but it certainly could be much worse. Last year over 1,600 people applied for one meter reading job in Tacoma.
