The thing about domain sales is they can come fast or they can come slow. The life of a domain investor can be rather lonely at times. Lately some people have been feeling the blues over a sales drought that seems to be lasting months. As Brad Mugford pointed out to this domain investor, it’s the nature of the business and things can come in spurts and then slow down.
