2019 PMC Jersey Raises $12,000!

0

I am really excited to share the final design for the 2019 Pan-Mass Challenge jersey that John Berryhill and I will wear when we cross the finish line and on our July training rides. The purple and pink jersey design won the voting by a slim margin of fewer than 10 votes. The winning design was created by Amy Brown, the Creative Director from our lead sponsor, XYZ:

2019 Pan-Mass Challenge Supporters

logoLater this Summer, I will be riding in the 2019 Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston. DFCI is one of the leading cancer organizations in the world – both in terms of cancer treatment and cancer research, and my family proudly supports it. Since the ride started, the PMC has raised over $660 Million for Dana-Farber!

This will be my sixth year riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge. With the help of supporters and friends like you, we raised over $50,000 for Dana-Farber and its Jimmy Fund in the first five years of riding in the PMC. My fundraising goal for 2019 is $12,500.

Beautiful Gift from a Reader

A couple of weeks ago, I went to my business PO Box expecting to see a few letters, a magazine or two, and an assortment of domain name renewal notices and other junk mail. When I saw the yellow slip in the box indicating a package awaited my attention behind the mail counter, my heart skipped a beat in excitement.

Wishing You a Merry Christmas

As the year is winding down, I want to wish those of you who celebrate a Merry Christmas. Hopefully you are spending time with family and friends and are able to stay away from work today (especially when you are bidding against me in an auction that closes today!) Kidding aside, I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas.

I hope you have been able to achieve your domain investing goals this year. There are a few days remaining in the year, so perhaps there are still deals to be struck.

Doing a Bit of Maintenance This Morning

Good morning! You may have noticed some CSS issues on the website last night and today. I am working with my developer to try and speed up the load time for the website and to optimize the viewing experience (for you and for me).

In the course of doing this maintenance and upgrades, the CSS is a little bit buggy looking and will be until this maintenance is complete. Thank you for visiting and thanks to the people who emailed me about it!

Now Using Jetpack Comments

When I relaunched DomainInvesting.com on a new WordPress theme, I began using the Jetpack plugin for commenting. This plugin is operated by Automattic, the company that owns WordPress. I use several Jetpack features, but the one that is most noticeable to readers is the comment section.

Jetpack allows readers to easily comment, just as they had before. There is once again a subscribe to comments feature, allowing people to receive email notifications when other comments are made on a blog post. This is helpful in keeping a conversation going, especially if people comment over a longer period of time.

I appreciate it when people
