But I'm still keeping a fairly level head; I'm currently in auction for one domain and have regged two more:
Snark.me (now on a blog)But this will be it for me.
Literary.me (not a clue where to go with this one--maybe it will sink into Sedo hell with Literary.name and Literary.cc.)
"Snark" isn't a super performing keyword, but I just couldn't resist it, and I'm having a good time developing Snark.me. Will it make money?
Doubtful--the story of my life. I love developing sites that have little commercial value.
But I AM puzzled at some of auction prices that some .me domains have been bringing.
Toyota.me = realized $90,000+ (Good luck with that TM nightmare, Georg Kohler of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Did you make a killing in the gemstone biz and have $90,000 in cash just laying around? Are you a Toyota dealership who has plans for it? Even so, will Toyota WIPO it? Unless you are Toyota, expect to lose your investment...)What are these people thinking? Do they know something the rest of us don't know? Or is this simply speculation by a few rich domainers?
Insure.me (still in auction)= 50,000+
I just hope that shill bidding isn't going on--in my opinion, that would be the kiss of death for this TLD (at least in terms of commercial value).
I have been hanging out at Namepros; they have a few dot-me threads going. No matter what happens, this TLD is sure creating buzz.
As I said last post, within a year or so, domainers will have a better idea how .me will fare.
