One of the advantages of having the DomainInvesting.com brand instead of my personal blog brand is that I can easily allow expert contributors post articles offering their insight. I have plans to do this, and I have begun to compile a list of experts I believe could offer valuable information to people who read my blog. If I ask a contributors post articles, it will be related to domain investing and won’t be too tangential.
There are many areas of domain investing I don’t know much about. For instance, I don’t really know all that much about the ccTLD market, nor do I know much about ICANN governance. There are many experts out there who would be able to offer interesting anecdotes, news articles, and other information that would help all of us. Some of these people would be happy to contribute and share.
I am going to advise contributors that their articles shouldn’t be trying to sell something. I don’t want to read a sales pitch, and I assume you don’t want to read that either. Some people might not want to write a blog post that isn’t a sales pitch, and that’s fine because there are plenty of resources for them to do that.
Who do you think would make a great contributor to this website? I would assume that person shouldn’t be an active writer or blogger elsewhere because there wouldn’t be much of a reason for them to contribute here, too.
Over the next few weeks and months, I will reach out to potential contributors to gauge their interest in writing and sharing. Hopefully this will benefit all of us, and your suggestions will be helpful to me.
A few areas I am probably weak in would include:
- domain monetization / parking
- domain sales
- various domain name topics
- new gTLD
- ICANN / Internet governance
- registry operations
- registrar operations
- web development
If you have someone in mind, please let me know.
