I want to wish all our readers a very Happy New Year. May 2020 bring you all you need in your life with much health and happiness.
I am starting a little awards post on New Years Day looking back on the previous year and with the intent of helping a good cause.
So I am doing our Best in Domaining awards ( BID) for 2019. I will be donating $100 in the name of each winner to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Best Brokerage 2019 – VIP Brokerage – When you take 2 of the top 4 spots on the yearly sales charts, the largest geo ever sold, California for $3 million, you get my vote.
Best Blog 2019 – DomainNameWire I obviously have excluded TLDinvestors and TheDomains.com from consideration. I think Andrew did an excellent job in 2019 with his podcast.
Best Domainer 2019 – Chad Wright I am going outside the box and giving it to Chad Wright. I think what Chad accomplished with Free.games and a bunch of other new gtld sales was outstanding.
Best Domainer Resource 2019 – Namebio Michael Sumner provided paid memberships in 2019 and added a lot more data for users to peruse.
Best Contributor – Bob Hawkes this award is just about contributing to people and companies in the business with an upbeat and positive attitude and just being a really good person. Bob gets the inaugural win.
I want to thank all our readers and all our advertisers. I want to thank Alvin Brown and Kassey Lee for contributing excellent articles. I want to thank those that sent gifts over the holidays, much appreciated. Sara I never even knew who you were and as I said in my email, much too kind.
This blog is now 9 years old and my domaining career (If we can call it that) is now starting year 24, damn I am old. A few new things to be added this year hopefully, I need a boring business to become more exciting.
May each of you have the best year ever in all aspects of your life.
