There are times when you think long and hard about something and then decide what to do. And then there are those times when you are high on caffeine, take a decision and wonder who made that decision. It was that moment for me today when I decided to upgrade my wordpress blog and buy a domain name. If you haven’t noticed already, what used to be is now

While it’s true that I had thought about buying a domain name in the past, I was never seriously into it as I did not know how much I would blog. Today I was casually going through the admin pages and then the message popped up – domain is available. Suddenly, these express train of thoughts trail-blazed through the neuron tracks in my brain.

  1. I need this domain to monetize through my blog later
  2. If I become famous or a significant person by Lady Luck’s gentle touch, I would need this domain. If it is not available at that time, I may have to shell out more to acquire this domain from the crook who was cunning enough to seal this domain name before me.
  3. Some other person sharing my name could become famous and look for this domain name. I can then sell this domain to him in a good bargain. (Wait. Please read the word Crook as Business Mind in the second point above. We should not judge people. It’s not fair.)

And thus I arrived at decision of buying a domain name in a wink

PS: My bet is on point 3. Fingers crossed.
