steal domain name ideas!

Steal my domain name ideas!

This is a short list of ideas I’ve had –usually in the middle of the night– for niche blogs. Like most things with me, the idea makes me immediately think of words to frame it in, so over time I’ve come up with a whole list of potential domain names for niche blogs that I could start but probably never will.

So, if you want one of these, take it.

DontMakeMeRead.com

My idea was a reviews site for software tools & other products suitable for visual thinkers and dyslexics (my partner is dyslexic, one of my favourite clients is a very visual thinker, so I see a lot of relevant stuff). Someone already has the domain name registered, and is using it to encourage visual communication online.

SexWithRobots.com

…is the homepage of the band of the same name. So I registered RobotSexTech.com instead. It’s a project I’ve sidelined for now, but I’ll come back to it.

CrashTestBlogging.com

I got as far as setting up a test site, then decided to create Invisiblogger instead.

CrashTestBaby.co.uk

I did actually set this up, but never added content because I decided to keep it all on machiavelliid.com because I couldn’t handle managing one more blog at that time.

LateForEverything.com

Hasn’t happened yet. This domain was available a few months ago, but now redirects to “cantgetstarted.com”, which IMO is not the same thing at all. They’re selling an ebook for $27. Gutted.

AskForWhatYouWant.com

Dedicated to the fact that you rarely get things without making it clear that you want them. This domain is parked with GoDaddy, so I hope someone will develop something nifty on it.

GetUsedToColdCoffee.com

A snarky BFF for work-at-home parents, specifically those who attempt to work and parent at the same time. In fact, I’ve changed my mind about this one and I’m buying it for my househusband to develop into a fantastic image-based blog.

  1. Ach! I’ll never get used to cold coffee…

  2. I love the idea of AskForWhatYouWant – it’s something that so many of us fail to do. And then we wonder why we’re putting up with second best!
