It’s great to see the domain investing community come together in tough times

Domain Investors Come Together

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, as domain investors, in so many ways we’re like a big family. Domain Conferences, yeah – those are our family reunions. Just like real family reunions, that’s our time to get together in-person and catch-up, and also there’s always that one cousin who gets too drunk and makes a fool of himself. Ah – family.

When I started buying and selling domains back in 2007 I was really amazed at how many people welcomed me into the community. Today I’m proud to call some of these people my closest friends. A number of you were at my wedding, and one of you cried during our vows…but I won’t say who!

What I think makes the domain investing community so interesting is that it is truly global. Over the last week I’ve talked with friends in Europe, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Canada, Latin America, England, and of course here in the US. It’s clear we all care about each other, and like a big family, while we might have our differences at time, when it comes down to it, we’re all here for each other, through thick and through thin.

Given all the doom and gloom in the news, I thought I’d take a minute to highlight a few positive things I’m seeing domain investors around the world doing.

Michael Cyger held a “Domain Name Quarantine Social”

Johan’s continuing to keep us laughing with some comic relief

Rick Schwartz has been buying supplies for people in need

Josh Reason is reminding us why we’re all lucky to be domain investors

James Booth is finding the silver lining

And the list goes on. As many of you know, my wife and I started self-quarantine two weeks ago. At that time people told us we were crazy, now it’s required for everyone living in San Francisco and will likely happen in New York City any moment now.

While it might be tough to be stuck at home, remember, you aren’t alone, we’re all in this together and if you’re a domain investor, your family is right here by your side. I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this global community, now let’s all stay the f&$@ck inside and stay safe.

Feel free to comment below and share something positive from your life. I’ll kick it off. With the extra time at home I’m tripling the amount of time I study Japanese! Learning a new language is a lot of fun, I’ve been studying for a year but will use this as an opportunity to really take my language learning to the next level.

    Positive ey… OK so a few months back I took 5 months off work & stocked up something shocking, and I was at the doctor a few days ago & thought to myself to bring along a bunch of Dettol sanitisers to give to the doctor to pass along to patients, and I was glad I did as the doctor opened my eyes to the older people who have their systems compromised severely at this stage, with respiratory issues, or going through chemotherapy & really needed it. However what was gold to the staff was the toilet paper. Toilet paper isn’t expensive, but certainly brought smiles to their faces!

    Since I already work from at home, my daily life hasn’t changed that much. But what would really suck is if a foreign power managed to take down the internet or power grid. Now, that would be a change of lifestyle!

    I really do not understand this obsession with toilet paper.

    A faucet like this cost like 10 USD and you can use it for years.
