Time for Renewal, Part 1

October 28, 2011

So I recently received an email from Go Daddy reminding me to renew a few of the various domain names I’ve registered with them.  I usually only pay for 1 year at a time, and I can be a bit of an impulse buyer with domains, so I get these reminders on a somewhat regular basis, throughout out the year.

Usually these emails are no big deal, but since they glance into my somewhat recent past, they can occassionally strike a nerve.  What exactly was I thinking 10 months ago, when I bought that URL?  Or in this most recent case, why didn’t I follow through with that idea like I had planned?  And the idea I just had last week (and bought the domain for)…will I be having a similar walk down memory lane 10 months from now?

I’ve often said I’m directionless for having too many directions.   I think I’d prefer Go Daddy wasn’t such a strident reminder of this character flaw.
