Top 5 Ways To Tell If You Were Meant to Be a Domainer

Sometimes you can tell if you were meant to be a Domainer. There are little things we do that make us all quite unique and it’s clear to me that Domainers are cut from a different fabric than most.

So if you want to know if you’re a Domainer just check the list below – if you exhibit these qualities you know it was meant to be!

1) Every time you watch TV you come-up with ideas for new domain names you want to buy

2) Your browser homepage is

3) You would be more excited to bump-into Rick Schwartz in an airport than any A-list celebrity

4) Your girlfriend/wife/significant other actually has to tell you “No more talking about Domains” on a daily basis

5) You occasionally dream of buying or registering domain names

That’s my top five – comment and share your own!

    6. If you had a time machine, instead of going back and warning the world of impending problems you’d go and register thousands of one word generics.

    You wake up in the morning and have dents all over your face from your computer-keybord.

    #4 is definitely the biggest indicator.

    heres another one: when talking to someone you accidentally add “.com” onto a sentence.

    Those points are very true, I’ll add one point to that list. Reading domain blogs on your mobile phone. While I dropped my car off at the mechanic I popped open a browser on my blackberry and am typing this message. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have you been stalking me? All of the above are a part of my daily life…..and Yes, I was happier to meet Mike Zappy then I was to meet the New York Islanders…..

    In terms of my wife and three kids, they ask me EACH morning at breakfast which domain names I bought while they were sleeping, LOL

    There are a few more I would add to the list such as constantly keyword search volume to see what might make/break a good domain and also tracking new trends that warrant domains to be registered and so on and so on….I’m sure most people reading these posts “get it”

    Waking up in the morning while still sitting at your desk and then making your way to the bathroom and looking in the mirror just to finde out you have dents all over youre face from the computer keybord which you used as pillow.

    That’s great stuff… My girlfriend has just learned to tune me out when I tell her about my next “venture.”

    I check keyword search volume as well on just about anything and everything I come across daily.
