Having been frustrated recently by lack of interest in my domains, I just checked out the http://www.acorndomains.co.uk/domain-name-offers-invited.html forum. Looking at the page as it stands at the moment, apart from 1 exception it consists of sales threads where the original poster has either generated no interest or has bumped the thread themselves. It seems like most of us are deluding ourselves by continuing to register / catch mid-range names simply on the off-chance we might sell them on. I already developed nearly 500 of the names into sites, and still earn some reasonable cash through parking. Over the next couple of years I imagine i will be letting go 80 per cent of the rest of my portfolio unless anything changes the market as it now stands. Is anybody optimisitc about the future?
