This isn’t my first blog, but it’s my first blog on my own website. A few months ago I figured I’d better lock down patecardwell.com before either A) someone else named Pate Cardwell got the domain name or B) someone bought the site name before I could then wanted to charge me an outrageous price to buy it from them. People have been known to buy domain names of either famous people’s names, or company names, then when said person or company goes to buy a website, that site name is taken. The owner of the site jacks up the price and sells it to that person or business. The most recognizable case is a from a guy, Mike Mann, who actually bought over 14,000 domain names in a 24 hour period and then sold them all for more as people wanted to buy those names.
That’s what I see this site being about. Not domain names or buying and selling. People. People I’ve met and maybe even people I’ve never met and only read about. People I’ve learned from. Good people, bad people. It doesn’t matter.
I’m going to ask others to help contribute blogs to this page as well. We’ll see how it goes.
I’ll post something soon. Thanks for the support.
