Well, many people have asked me why I don’t have my own blog. It’s sort of „What? you don’t have a blog“ or „Everybody has a Blog“.
My standard answer: Why would I need a blog?; Who would bee interested in what I write?; I do enough writing in all sorts of forums related to domains, so why a blog?
OK, two weeks ago my youngest son (18) asked me to register a domain and setup a blog for him. He chose the domain uebelstkrass.de meaning something like „tremendously fantastic“ or „Extremely exagerated“. Curious as I am, my first questions were:
What do you want to do with it?
Why do you want to run a blog?
Who would be interested in it?
I got a few good answers like, I want to start my own blog, I just want to write down things I see and find interesting, I don’t really care who else is interested in it.
So I took an example and here I go. I don’t really know who might be interested in what I have to say, but it will certainly be that what I myself consider inportant and want to share. I dont really think I will be bringing anything that will change the world in any way so its just Smalltalk. Since the main subject that will be coming up is domains, my blog just deserves the name Domain Smalltalk. In the next few days I’ll be starting up a few subjects may be interesting to anyone that is related to the domain business.
So at this point I can just say
Welcome everybody who finds his/her way here and welcome everybody who finds it interesting enough to look in again.
