I just bought a new domain with the idea of turning it into a positive and creative challenge. This whole thing started one morning when I woke up with a brainstorm. I started listing all the domain names I could think of that would have stories attached to them. A lot of them were Seattle neighborhoods I lived in, like west Seattle, Bainbridge Island or Port Orchard. In all came up with something like thirty-five different domain names.
What I wanted was a domain name that would open the doors to almost unlimited story ideas. After searching all kinds of domain names, I finally found one that is all-inclusive, at least as far as where I live is concerned. And, while I wanted to still write about all the smaller neighborhoods of the Puget Sound region, my webmaster pointed out that I could get the same results with subdomains that were connected to the main website, saving me a lot of time, energy, effort and especially money.
I now have a domain name that allows for almost unlimited story ideas and advertising potential. I can now write stories about events, locations and people throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho, since this is where I live. Of course, if a story comes along about an event, city or person in California, Nevada, Utah (or anyplace else for that matter) I can share that, too.
At this writing, the new domain and website is not active. My webmaster is sending me samples of ideas for my review. I am looking forward to launching a few stories on July 4th, 2019, but that is just something on my wish list at the moment.
Why this project? I don’t know how to retire, and I like to write. I also like to travel. I will tell you more as things develop over the next few weeks. Stay tuned.
