A full decade of blogging on Acro.net

Time flies when one is having fun, and I just realized that this blog is now 10 years old.

When I started Acro.net back on February 4th, 2008, the domain community was quite different from today.

My primary domain exchange outlet was DNForum, and I had yet to meet with domain investors in the US. Later that year, I did, by attending TRAFFIC 2008 in Orlando. At the time, I was parking domains at Sedo and Parked.com, and I recall how nice the PPC was! My domain registrar of choice was eNom, where I had a reseller account.

The main reason I started this blog, after I purchased it from a fellow domain investor, Claude Dauman, was to complement my business web site, Acroplex.com, with my personal angle on domain investing and other subjects. Since everyone called me “Acro” on DNForum and NamePros, it made sense.

I’m pleased to have been able to present my own insight about domain investing, UI / graphics / brand design, along with other personal “ramblings” by writing more than 1,000 posts this past decade. After all, a personal blog’s primary function is to provide an outlet of sharing one’s thoughts, and I did have quite a bit to share over the years, it seems. 😀

During this past decade, I’ve tried to present information about my “modus operandi” when it comes down to investing, among other things. Quite a bit of the blog’s content references anecdotal incidents, some identifiable some not, from my past interactions with the wonderful world of domaining.

The domain industry is constantly evolving and some of my positions over the years might – and should – have changed since.

In 2009 I launched DomainGang.com, a domain industry publication that became my primary content writing focus. Acro.net remains my personal outlet for ten years now, and this is how I exchange comments on other domain industry blogs.

I’m considering a format change for Acro.net in the near future, along with the introduction of a new publication; as always, I’m grateful to all of you who had positive engagements with me over the years, whether on this blog, on forums or in person. It’d be amazing to be able to list hundreds of people by name, so I’m collectively thanking every one of you.

I appreciate the friendships that formed from these interactions, and I do miss those friends who left this world untimely.

Onto the next decade!
