I quit domaining a couple of years ago after picking up a domain that I didn't want to let go, decided to invest all of my time developing that instead. I only dabbled in domaining for beer money anyway, although made a couple of sales that allowed me to 'bank' a bit in the old stakeholder pension..... it was thanks to domaining that I got the bug back for developing though, after a 5 year hiatus (first Google panda obliterated my network of 5 page exact match domain sites, quite rightfully in hindsight but wasn't any consolation at the time!). I've always wanted to build an Alexa top 50,000 website, decided I could do it with this domain in this niche (it would require me to be the 3rd most visited website of this type, I've just broke the top 200,000 and that makes me top 6). Yeah yeah, Alexa is inaccurate etc (actually less true now, can explain why Alexa has a much larger sample size these days if you wish, the 'only people who have the toolbar installed thing' was once true, not anymore). But anyway.... I'm at the stage where the hard stuff is out of the way now with that site, and I've just got to keep adding content regularly and sharing stuff occasionally on the social media accounts. So I've been thinking long and hard about my next project. I just registered HOBBYforum.com (a hobby, not the actual word hobby). And trust me when I say I've registered that JUST as this hobby is booming. Like most of you I suspect, I look back at missed opportunities, e.g. wish I could go back in a time machine to when Bitcoin was $1. Pretty sure for the first time in 10 years of full time internet work I'm finally going to be early stage / a first mover with the category killer. No time to waste. Here's the trend graph for the phrase..... current month off September peak due to it being a 100% outdoor hobby and the weather getting colder. The subreddit for this hobby has gone from 5k to 25k subscribers in a few months. Never thought I'd ever get this excited about a hand reg, well not since 2001 when Godaddy told me that Manchester.co.uk was available and let me pay for it, before cancelling the transaction because it had been registered since 1998 (never forgiven them, I was dancing around my living room for 20 minutes). I mean.... its going to be a forum, which means its going to be tough to monetize, and there's still a chance I'll spunk £500 on a sexy xenforo forum with all bells and whistles and another £250 on facebook ads... and everybody will stay on Reddit.... .... but I don't care, its still exciting, and its a nice feeling to get excited about a domain enough to embark on a development project, after 4.5 years of post-panda depression which even saw me go and temp in a warehouse for 6 months to get away from the computer. Sorry for the massive rant, you don't even know me, but people in my offline world wouldn't understand.
