Yesterday I added my first names to Brand Bucket.  At first I was like everyone else and thought I could do my own version of Brand Bucket.

I feel like I’m starting to get a crush on the two girls in the Uniregistry ad on all the domain blogs.

I Bid A Dollar and Raise You Some Intelligence
Contrary to what you see on at some domain auctions, there is some strategy/skill behind a listing. I read through the auctions over at Flippa and see countless auctions that have starting bids of $500, $5000, even $10,000. There is absolutely no point to starting an auction for more than a $1. I get it why people may do it at other... - Tuesday, July 22, 2014 - 17:14

This has to be the worst list I’ve ever done.  I wouldn’t even have done a list but I didn’t want you to think I skipped a day.  I might as well have.  There is nothing but a lot of junk.
