A friend just came up with this “word” as we were chatting about how my service vehicle for work was probably not suited for the blizzard conditions currently slamming us here in the DC area.
I’m not going anywhere this weekend and that’s a good thing.
The dotcom is available… I’m not registering it either. That’s also a good thing!
Some good Maryland Google Voice numbers in area code 301
244-8636 (d - bigundo)
244-9825 (d - bigyuck)
244-9244 (d - big9big)
d = dotcom is also available… bigyuck.com is such a great name… so is bigundo!
I really considered getting agitate. What a great vanity number for someone like… well, not me.
all of my tumblr sites
I maintain other sites (some for clients), but most of my current web experiments are right here on tumblr. It’s just so simple to maintain everything from one dashboard. Other systems are good also and have their advantages, but I see this as the smartest simple and easy route to web publishing.
Here are the tumblr sites I have either created or participate (P) in at some level. Private tumblelogs not shown here:
domain names and great tumblr groups
I finally set up a “DV” account and I’m finally dropping Godaddy as my host for a number of domain names that “seemed like a good idea at the time” (but that I never really put any time into developing. As I shed the stagnant Wordpress installations and move the domains over to my new server, I am pretty clear on the fact that I may never find time to dedicate to web sites for these domains.
I’m thinking maybe some of them may be of interest to this community (please pass this idea along for others to consider). I’ve listed a six of them with a brief summary of my original blog idea for each. I think as tumblr groups, these could be fun.
If you want to add a twist on one of my ideas here or have something entirely different that fits the name, let’s do it!
same-store.com originally subtitled, “indefatigably blogging the demise of traditional retail”, this has gotten a steady flow of Google traffic for searches related to various “same-store sales are down” articles I blogged about.
bankdecay.com was registered when my bank really disappointed me and I realized that they don’t actually value me as a customer. I’ve never done a thing with it since registering the name. I think it can be a very cool statement to the banking industry with the right content.
greedyphone.com is a name I thought of in 2002-3 meetings with Microsoft when we thought $10MM was too low for our six month old, now all but offline startup, textamerica. The idea was that none of the parties involved (manufacturers, software developers, and carriers) play well together and the customer pays the price. Blog posts were focussed on “greed” aspects of various news stories. This one also has had steady Google traffic related to those posts.
n80ie.com is the model number of a barely popular, high end Nokia phone that as now alomst obsolete. It gets a lot of traffic and I will point this one to greedyphone.com if it is used.
gpsjunk.com was supposed to be about GPS devices. Never developed.
waterscam.com could be all about… bottled water!
All of these are now empty (on my new server). Please post here with ideas, etc.
