contentwriting is on a distinguished road

Evening!

New here...

im more of a blogger and content writer than a domain guy so all this is new to me... but im always willing to learn!

Never sold a domain in my life, I have always let ones I didnt want anymore expire.... im sure you guys a gonna slap me round the head for that but have never really known what to do with em! dumb I know!

Im fairly handy with adsense on niche sites so if anyone needs any advice in that direction give me a shout! Although I dont claim to be an expert so prepared to learn also!

Welcome to Acorn!

If you want any info on buying and selling names it's a good place to start to learn.

Do you currently own any domains? If so it's generally customary to say what's your best and worst

I would probably start by browsing around the forum and picking up things as you go. You'll quickly get to grips with what's worth something and what's not - of course the value of a domain is always up for debate but there are 'measurable' search benefits from exact match domains that you should read about if you're not already familiar.

A lot of people use blog.wordpress.com or blog.blogspot.co.uk which are great accessible platforms for writing, but if you don't already have your own domain then I would definitely recommend getting one. Setting up, managing, marketing and monetising a website is a great learning curve and the experience really helps for domaining even if you're only turning over a few pence a month.
