First Acquisition of 2012…

The year is very young, but I made my first domain acquisition of the year. I purchased on a NameJet auction yesterday afternoon. The domain name has a registration date of 1999.

Little Bighorn is a historical landmark in the United States, and the National Parks Service has a monument there (Montana). You can read more about the Battle of Little Bighorn on Wikipedia or you can visit the NPS website to learn more. IMO, will make a great historical website, although it’s more likely that I will sell it rather than develop it.

Now that I’ve shared my first acquisition, how about sharing yours?
