10 years old


Today, it is exactly 10 years since I bought the domain It was September 13th 1999 when I registered the domain, before that I was a domain virigin. For most of the time it has been a really bad web site to market my consulting skills, that it was bad didn’t really matter since I had employment for most of the time anyway. For years the only reason I kept the domain was to have my own private email address and not use my work email or hotmail for my private stuff (yes, this was BEFORE GMail, it was that long ago).

There have been versions in Swedish, Spanish and English (even a breif French one) depending on where in the world I were at any given moment and the designs have varied quite a lot, as you can see below. A few years ago I started blogging and since then has been a perfectly OK blog. Here’s a look back at old designs…

Not much to say… it was one of my first web pages and I have learned a lot since then. At least I didn’t have a spinning @ sign or any applets on the page!

I have no plans to let go and it will be my main domain for quite some time. It will be cool to see how it develops during the next 10 years (assuming we still use domains in 10 years that is).

Trying my luck at the domain market…


When one is constantly working with new web projects, as I am, it is hard not to start hoarding domain names. It is a bit of a dirty habit that it is easy to get started with and hard to let go. A couple of weeks ago me and a friend was talking about wedding domain names for an upcoming project of ours, and for some reason we just started to check if domains about Swedish royal weddings were taken. The Swedish Crown Princess Victoria has been seeing a guy for quite a few years, so a wedding should be coming up at some time soon we figured. Lo and behold some domain names were free, so we registered them on a whim. Today the Crown Princess engagement and upcoming (summer 2010) wedding was announced!

So now it is time for me to try out the domain market, not just the buying side but also the selling side. Not sure how to evaluate domain names, but I am taking a rough stab hoping that I am not too greedy and not too naive. Hoping that at least we can get some nice money to spend on Google Ads for our wedding project.

These are the domains I have, all for sale at in 2 portfolios (Victoriasbrollop and Kungligtbrollop):

Let’s see what the domain fairy can bring me…
