I hate to hear domainers are drowning in their renewal bills. But they are. Many of them. More than we could count. In fact, MOST domainers are probably drowning in renewal fees.
So what to do?
Well if it were me, I would cut my losses and start over armed with whatever new knowledge I might have.
Rick, are you suggesting we drop all our domains?
Yes, that is exactly what I am saying. Pick out your 10 best if there is such a thing and start again without the burden of paying for pure pigeon shit that has no value now and won't have value in 1000 years from now. So just drop it! Drop the crap. I see so-called "Portfolios" without a single domain of value. Hundreds! Sometimes thousands and not a ONE worth even a registration fee.
Sorry, but just because you have domains does not make you a domainer. As I have said before, it resembles more of a Pigeon Shit Farmer.
Now I don't say these things to hurt your feelings. If your feelings are hurt, get over it! My words are more valuable than somebody patting you on the back and telling you what you want to hear.
All I can say is this: There is no reason whatsoever to buy crap. NONE! There are so many great domains that are a fraction of your renewal fees. But you can't buy those cuz you are stuck with shit! Let it go! Start a new path right now. You have that power.
Just remember, less work getting good shit than buying pigeon shit. And believe me, there is no other word or phrase for it. Your domains are meaning challenged. Meaning your domains have no meaning. And if they have no meaning, they have no use. And if they have no use, they are a liability and not an asset.
So you need to learn two things. The difference between a liability and an asset. The difference between a domain name and pigeon shit.
If you are not willing to do that, go look for a job. Nobody can help you until you help yourself.
