One thing I like to do is come up with a creative domain names, register the domains and then design a website specifically for the domain. Most of the domain names I have are developed and active. However, I do have a few undeveloped domain names with potential to be turned into cool websites. The problem is, at this moment of my life, I don’t have the time or ability or even the motivation to develop the domains. And even if I did come up with a creative idea and found the time to develop the website, I certainty wouldn’t have the time to promote it properly. I’m already up to my ears in social media accounts. And despite all the accounts I’m still not getting that much traffic. Although, that’s because many of the accounts don’t have the followers necessary to deliver meaningful traffic. Not to mention, I have to make getting the three inactive / maintenance mode e-commerce websites up and running a priority before I can get into any new projects.
I hate sitting on good domains, because it takes away the opportunity of potential development. Even so, I only have a few and I’m going to hold on to them in hopes I’ll be able to develop them myself in the future.
As for the time being, my main focus is going to be adding content and promoting News Stop, Wowzers and UpperCut. The great thing about adding content is it’s different everyday. This is an aspect I really enjoy because I come across so many excellent, interesting and informative stories. As for promoting – in general it isn’t my thing. I always had the mindset that a good product promotes itself (at least after a certain point). And when I see to much advertising it’s a turnoff. However, I seem to do ok with social media. Maybe because it is networking with the end result often being promotion.
In a post about a week ago, I mentioned I was going to spend more time promoting through social media – I did. Though, most of the time went to organizing and creating accounts for each active website. Directly below are the social media accounts (at least the major social media accounts) I now have for each website (feel free to network):
If you noticed I don’t have any Tumblr accounts. I’m hoping to change that this week. I’ve heard some good things recently about Tumblr regarding the websites technology and the traffic for which it can deliver. I’ll soon find out if that’s true.

Revamped the main page so only active websites are being displayed. Removed all tables from the entire website; reorganized the “current websites” page and created individual description pages for each website.
All Kinds Of Good Stories were added to News Stop over the past week. Here are a few of my favorites:
After a slow couple of weeks for UpperCut, there were some very cool stories submitted. Here are some of the better stories:
