Great Day Today!

5

It’s been a really great day today, and I want to share a bit about why it’s been so good… BTW, it has nothing to do with St. Patty’s Day, although I plan to celebrate later on tonight.

– While writing this morning’s article, I tried to find my friend’s obituary. Sadly, I not only didn’t find his, but I did find his mom’s, who passed away last year. Using information in that obit, I was able to connect with my friend’s sister who lives in Austin, and we had a nice chat over Facebook this morning. First time we ever connected, and I hope it was able to make her feel good.

– The auction for 2 hours of private domain consulting ended today, and the high bid was $700, all of which will be donated to Ronald McDonald House by the bidder. This surpassed my expectations, and I was excited when that bid was made. In addition, over $300 was donated to my RMH fundraising page today… thank you. Almost there!

– This morning I finalized a deal I’ve been working on since December. I was able to buy BikeTours.com, which goes along with a name I already own – BikeTour.com. The reason it was difficult was that the owner had his registrant email @BikeTours.com, which had no hosting, so the email bounced. Since the owner had semi-retired and was spending his time traveling, I had to do quite a bit of research to track him down. Since he has limited Internet access and had never used Escrow.com before, it took a long time to close the deal. I now have the name in my possession. It always feels good to close a deal.

– I have two advertising deals in the works on a couple of different websites, and I had three paid listings for another website today. These might be small deals in the whole scheme of things, but it shows that the sites are working and people want to be a part of them. It’s almost as exciting to get a new sign up as it is to close a big domain deal.

Hope you guys are having a good day today.

    Not quite as good as your day but, had a few payments come in and won a name or two today.

    But the best part for me is that todays begins my 2 week spring break!

    Hope tomorrow is just as good

    Fantastic stuff Elliot. So glad your bid got so high, I’m sure it will be greatly appreciated by Ronald McD House and put to fantastic use.

    BikeTours.com is very nice indeed. Much better than the singular version IMO. It can be frustrating when owner’s are hard to track down and then even harder to tutor on how to complete a deal, but so satisfying when it’s all done and you get a good deal. I wish you all the best with the domain, I’m sure you’ll do great things with it like you have done with others.

    Well done on BikeTours.com – very nice domain.

    Will correct you on one thing though. It’s St Paddy’s day, not St Patty’s day :)

    Hope you had a good one.
