While I have been working on the Internet for quite a while, for some reason I have never really considered registering my name as a domain name. I am sure I checked at one time to see if leerobertson.com was available but it must have been taken at the time and I never really gave it a second thought. That is until the other day when I was renewing some domain names over at GoDaddy. I get to the check out and there is this little box saying “leerobertson.com is available. Add this domain to your order.” What? My name is available? Well that is just to good to be true.
I did a few other searches and sure enough leerobertson.com is available and so was ericarobertson.com. My wife and son were out of luck, lynnrobertson.com and matthewrobertson.com were not available. So in what qualifies as a spur of the moment purchase I bought leerobertson.com and ericarobertson.com. Not sure what I will do with them, but considering there are people out there that won’t pick a name for their child until the check and see if the domain name is available I thought it can’t hurt to have them.
Anyone have any thoughts I what I should do with leerobertson.com or ericarobertson.com? I have them parked over at NameDrive for now. Not sure if I want to start a personal blog on my domain name. I think I have my hands full already between posting here and over at Epiblogger. Do you have a domain name with your name? What do you do with it?
