    i heard a nice saying today and thought i'd share
    " failure is just a rehearsal to success"
    and thus why i am dropping some domains and cleaning out the cupboards of bad decisions on purchases.

    It is always a good idea to drop domains in my view. For reg fee names most will be duds, which only becomes apparent after a few months or a year. Way better to drop them now than in 6 years time, and the money can be spent on better names.

    A few weeks back I went through a big clean up and dropped a heap of domains. Some seemed half-decent, but I'm never going to develop them and the effort to sell some for maybe reg fee each is not worth it.

    Some of the domains (mainly .com) had been on the books for a decade!

    Feeling good after the domain clean out, I then went onto Facebook and unfriended about a dozen people who probably never should have been there in the first place!

    Always good to get rid of clutter.
