I’ve seen it happen over and over. Buying domain names based on whether you might use it or not is a horrible idea!
The domain name shouldn’t be the deciding factor of what a new blog or website should be about.
I’ve been a culprit of buying domain names just because I thought I could do something with them as well. I’ve probably racked up over 200 domains since I started out on the internet.
The proper way to purchase a domain is to have your topic already picked out, and ideally, to have some of the site built on a staging server.
I know that sometimes we see a domain we just have to get, but those impulse purchases will kill your budget.
Plan out the site, its topic and the domain will fall into place.
