For the last thirteen years I’ve been writing almost exclusively about domain names. There’s a good reason for that, the vast majority of my investment focus is domains, and given how well domain investing has treated me, I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
Friends and family always try to convince me to buy a house or investment property but that’s never been very attractive to me, I just prefer digital investments.
I started investing in the stock market when I was thirteen years old. Believe it or not, back then I ran one of the first web design companies in the Bay Area. Yes, I’m old, so back when I was thirteen web design wasn’t really a thing. In fact, part of our job was convincing companies that “The Internet” was actually here to stay and not just a fad.
As I made money building websites I started investing in stocks and I think this started my lifelong passion for investing. While my core investment focus is domain names I also invest in startups as an angel investor and traditional stocks, most of which are tech-related since that’s what I know.
This year has been a stellar year for my stock portfolio and I’ve had fun taking a bit more time to research and throw a bit more money into the market. My portfolio is up 62.91% over the last three months and I’m getting ready to take a deeper dive into a few new investments over the coming weeks that I’m pretty excited about.
So I was thinking, what if I wrote a post, just one post, once a week about stocks. Maybe call it something fun like Stock Market Saturday? Don’t worry, every weekday would still be laser-focused on domains, I know it’s not a good idea to stray too far from what my audience has been reading for over a decade.
What do you think? Interesting idea or would that just mean you’d skip my blog on Saturday?
