I’ve continued to buy domains that I consider a good value. Sometimes they are domains that I can build a business on. Other times they are a quick flip. And then there are domains I will hold. I mentioned I bought FreshCutFlowers ( in the com of course) and immediately called Bill McClure to work on a flower store. Then I bought PrairiePlants and inked a deal with Pizzo Nurseries to supply and direct ship native plants. And then there was yesterday’s XTelevision which I bought for next to nothing but I feel will be of good value down the road when Apple changes television as we know it. That and the fact I thought it looked cool. I’ve actually gotten my portfolio up to 400 names, 100 more than I’d like it to be, so maybe its time to start thinning again. It’s just getting harder to thin as I feel I’ve made some pretty good buys and so far everything I’ve thinned over the years is worth twice as much as I sold it for. The entire portfolio is dot com except a few here and there so it’s not like I’m sitting on a bunch of dot nets and dot orgs like many a domain investor. Maybe I’ll set my new portfolio limit at 400. Here are today’s names. A special this week. The first 2 people to list a name in the Book of 10 get a special rate of $20. Remember it’s posted here, the top of Domaining.com and in the Domaining.com newsletter that goes to 18,000 people. Contact me to book

*All names chosen by me, Shane, and the goal of this list is to have all links be paid through commission (click through and purchase a name you like) or paid listing.
