Confused about domains?

That's understandable.  In today's world, there is a lot of terminology thrown around.  If there's something this post doesn't tackle, please leave a comment or question below.

What is a domain?

A domain is where you can be found on the internet, similar to your home address; some refer to it as a URL.  (example -  (Hip tip:  In 2014, no one really says World Wide Web or "on the net" or "on the web"'s similar to referring to country music as "Country & Western", all you need to say is "online" and 95% of people will know what you're referring to.)

Do I need to buy a domain?

No.  But, an online presence is certainly helpful in today's world.  Whether you're a business, blogger, do-it-yourselfer, etc., the possibilities are endless.

After I buy a domain, how do I get stuff on it?

Good question.  We'll most likely cover that in a future blog.

How do I buy a domain?

Buying a domain name is similar to buying a house.  In most cases, there is a real estate agent or domain registrar involved.  (prindledomains, godaddy, etc)

How much is it?

Not to get really general on you, but they can be free, several thousand dollars +, anywhere in between or higher.  With a premium domain, it's similar to having a valuable coin.  You're holding a valuable piece of online real estate.  Some flip them for a profit and some hang onto them.  An example of a premium domain is and  At the time of this writing, they hold the number 1 and 2 spots of the most visited sites in the world. 

What if a .com in not available?

Search engines (google, yahoo, bing, msn) and individuals put a lot of clout in the trusty .com extension.  2nd best choice is .org, then .net.  Many times you can make the current owner an offer if the site name you want is not currently available.

How do I know if my website name is valuable?

Our site has an appraisal tool that's easy to use.  Start at, hover your cursor over domain names, select domain name appraisals,  and follow the simple instructions from there.

Junk food (shocking!)

Peanut brittle, extra large cyclones (similar to DQ Blizzards), blueberry muffins, pancakes with butter and syrup (not drizzled, but saturated), home fries, toast, cheesecake, bread pudding, and pizza were the stars and co-stars of my treat week blowout at the "29" (our nickname for our place).

Sam Prindle, are you kidding me?  Aren't you the king of nutrition?  Don't you analyze every crumb of food before it enters your body?  I know.  No.  Uh, kind of.

Tomorrow, July 22, 2014, I begin a savagely grueling fitness and nutritional program.  ("Savage" & "grueling" is probably unfair) But, it's the most intensive challenge I've ever signed up for.

My week of junk gave me 7.7 additional pounds, a 3/4 inch increase in my waist, and a half an inch extra on my shoulders. 

Part of my marathon indulgence was to actually see what could be done in a week's time.  The results were absolutely shocking to me.  I knew the numbers would be up, but not this up!  (ouch!)

Today, I'll brainstorm of any treat I've mistakenly left behind (and enjoy it to the fullest) before it becomes Tuesday.  Tomorrow, the eatery vacation ends and it's back to work!
