I kid around with the title of this post, but in all seriousness, I want to make sure that the people reading my blog know that I wouldn’t be in the position I am in today without Frank Schilling and his Seven Mile domain blog.
Not only was Frank one of the first people to really go “all in” with domain names, but he was also one of the first domain bloggers who shared news, insight, and opinion with all of us – and he was happy to talk domains with anyone who commented. Looking back, it’s pretty cool that Frank was willing to take the time to share with all of us.
Not only that, but Frank was kind enough to link to newer bloggers that he didn’t even know, myself included, and every time he did that, my traffic went through the roof. It was such a trip when Frank linked to my blog, and it was an even cooler experience when Frank added me to his blog roll without my having to ask for the link.
Although Frank hasn’t blogged in quite some time, I urge you to look through his past posts – even if you’ve read them all before. The passing of time changes perspectives, and you might be in a different place now than you were in when you first read Frank’s blog. I still haven’t met Frank in person, but I appreciate all he has done for our industry, and my blog still receives traffic from his blog (The #6 referring site in August). It really is the gift that keeps on giving!
