I bought my best friend a domain name . Contrary to popular belief that domains don’t make good gifts she was STOKED! Now I didn’t actually purchase the domain name without consulting her, but after my research, I found that HerName.COM and HerName.BLOG were both available. I wanted to let her choose, so I had to explain all of the new domain names like .BLOG to her. This is the part where I get some “OOOOH and WOOOOWs” from her “I didn’t know about any of these!” and where I go “Yeah! Domains are really cool – my job is really cool!”. Long story short, my friend now has a .BLOG domain name and website she is happily sharing her adventures on. Take that skeptics!
