    Hi All,

    My name is Ed from Perth, Australia. :-D

    I am very happy to find this forum that focuses on .co.uk domains.
    Well done for putting it together.:cool:

    My quick history -

    I have been buying domain names for the past 10 years or so in the .com and .com.au markets mainly for businesses that I own, not for domaining purposes.

    I have only been buying .co.uk domains over the past 8 months.
    I was born is Scotland and my family immigrated to Australia when I was very young, but I have been back to the UK a few times so I have a strong interest with what goes on in the UK.

    I own about 250+ .co.uk domains now, some great, some good and a fair few that are not great. But all are generic 2 or 3 word domains.

    I am in the process of developing some of the better ones and working on some JV projects with others.

    I tend to focus on commercially viable names that have a easily recognizable product or service related to them that can be developed with JV partners.

    I have been running my AdWords Marketing Consulting business www.adwordsmarketing.com since 2003 dealing with clients across the globe including quite a few in the UK.

    Becoming a "domainer" has been a natural and logical extension of that business for me and I also decided to start a blog about domain names at www.ozdomainer.com

    I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing what I have learned over the years with you guys and also learning from all your combined experience.

    Regards :)

    I look forward to 2008.

    I will be heading back to the UK in Apr / May to take 6 months off with my wife and daughter and we will be spending a month or so in Scotland and England.

    So you never know I may get to meet some of you in person.

    Cheers

    Ed

    Welcome Ed..that's a great post to start off

    I want to spend some time learning a bit more about domains myself, since I
    have a few parked somewhere right now..

    Now I have to figure out where I parked them :-D then maybe I can get something done with them. I look forward to your posts Ed.
