Rick Schwartz, aka the Domain King wrote one of the most-read blogs in the domain name industry, aptly named “Rick’s Blog” and also not surprisingly located at RicksBlog.com. Throughout his career Rick has had more blockbuster domain sales than you can count on your fingers and toes. One that really made waves was in early 2015 when Rick sold Porno.com for $8.8M, a domain name he bought from a college student for $42,000 back in 1997. On December 26th, 2015 Rick retired his blog with a pretty epic post that you can read here.
That was it, and for more than a year Rick stayed mostly out of the public eye, except for mentions that rippled through domain name blogs as he made more blockbuster sales. Now over the last couple of months Rick has jumped back into the public eye and started sharing more, but this time through Twitter, and he’s really enjoying it as you can see from this tweet he made earlier today:
I have definitely been enjoying Rick’s tweets, and like his blog posts there are some really good nuggets in there. Let’s face it, there are few people on the planet that have been as successful as Rick when it comes to domain names so I think we’re pretty lucky that he’s still willing to share with all of us, and for free which is hard to beat.
I’m glad you’re enjoying Twitter Rick, keep em’ coming!
