Sunday, Muddy Sunday


I ran in my first “Mud Run” this morning. It was a 5k race in the Bronx sponsored by Merrell shoes company as part of their Down and Dirty National Mud Run Series. We ran through a series of obstacles, like wood hurdles, rope wall, ocean run, and of course two mud pits. Lots of fun!

Anyway, here are some updates:

September was a pretty solid month for my company. I made a few pretty decent sales, including, which had been listed for sale on my blog. I don’t know if the economy is turning a corner, but I do know if you are willing to sell solid domain names at good prices, there are buyers.

Rick Schwartz has been posting quite a bit on domain sales and acquisitions, and I think the articles are good reads. If you didn’t see the sponsored headlines on, you should check out Rick’s Blog when you have enough time to read a few articles. I agree with much of what he says, although I’ve made my living primarily by buying and selling quickly, which is something he doesn’t recommend. It’s something you should keep in mind because there are many different business models in this biz.

I am going to be at the Traffic conference in Miami for a day if you’d like to connect. I am extending a previously scheduled Florida vacation, and I’ll be traveling an hour or so south to Miami for the conference.   I already have a couple of meetings scheduled on Monday, but if you think there’s a reason we should meet, drop me a note and I will try to make some time.

    We both ran 5k’s this weekend! Your race sounds like a lot of fun. And on the business side sales and inquires are starting to pick up for me too.

    Elliot I am sure you read it but I find it funny no one in the domain industry covered the firing of Rick Sanchez from CNN for his remarks about Jews etc.

    Wasn’t he a key TRAFFIC speaker last year?

    Kind of ironic, beyt he loved to take our money.

    Did they implement one day show pass options at TRAFFIC Miami like DomainRoundTable had done in the past ?
