There are times when you think long and hard about something and then decide what to do. And then there are those times when you are high on caffeine, take a decision and wonder who made that decision. It was that moment for me today when I decided to upgrade my wordpress blog and buy a domain name. If you haven’t noticed already, what used to be https://sadagopangovindan.worpdress.com is now https://sadagopangovindan.com.
While it’s true that I had thought about buying a domain name in the past, I was never seriously into it as I did not know how much I would blog. Today I was casually going through the admin pages and then the message popped up – sadagopangovindan.com domain is available. Suddenly, these express train of thoughts trail-blazed through the neuron tracks in my brain.
- I need this domain to monetize through my blog later
- If I become famous or a significant person by Lady Luck’s gentle touch, I would need this domain. If it is not available at that time, I may have to shell out more to acquire this domain from the crook who was cunning enough to seal this domain name before me.
- Some other person sharing my name could become famous and look for this domain name. I can then sell this domain to him in a good bargain. (Wait. Please read the word Crook as Business Mind in the second point above. We should not judge people. It’s not fair.)
And thus I arrived at decision of buying a domain name in a wink
PS: My bet is on point 3. Fingers crossed.
