I don't write this blog to report news tho at times I do. I don't use it for press releases fed to me by others in the industry for their benefit or mine. I don't take advertisements. I am beholden to no one but my thoughts, opinions and truly strong beliefs. It's truly "Rick's" Blog.
So I wrote the majority of the posts to be timeless. Even when I was promoting TRAFFIC I would make sure to include some pearls that had value.
I started RicksBlog.com in 2007. I can go year after year after year and find relevant posts that may have been written a decade ago but still are relevant and current and beneficial. I wrote it to stand the test of time and also be able to look back thru our history.
My blog is my life's book. I have touched on about everything I can think of. I wish I could include the posts I made for the 11 years before I had my blog. One of these days I may fire up my Gateway 2000 Pentium Tower from the 1990's and see what I can find.
Lots of things have been said about domain investing. I have the time stamps to prove I said it first. ;- ) That's one of the things I really love about the Internet from the very first days. It's in ink and it has a timestamp.
Point is I wrote this blog to be read from the beginning for it all to make sense. Hundreds and hundreds of different chapters addressing anything and everything concerning Domains, Business, History and Life itself. And that is what it is all about. LIFE!
Is your soul mortgaged by working for others and having them own your time or do you own your time outright? My last job was 34 years ago when I got fired for making too much money. Working for other people is fine on the way up, but hopefully today people have 2 tracks. A job and a business that can grow and allow you to quit that job and own your time. Own your life!
Why is life important to domaining? Because there is only a short period you can enjoy the fruits of your labors. It will take hundreds of years for the Internet to fully develop. We will all be dead much sooner than that. The key to it all is working smarter. You work smarter by learning from other people's mistakes and history.
And just as important than all of that: My blog is my diary and maybe my legacy. A public diary that I hope proves to be timeless and helps countless people from every walk of life to look at things in different ways and learn to dig deep to find true answers.
Have a GREAT Day!
