    I just wondered what some of the people do for a crust here
    ...... me i just drive a truck and collect donations for charity and deliver sold items , plus go to the tip with all the crap that cant sell , (we are so wasteful)

    Sad to say i am not of the computer generation , i still remember playing pacman for 20cents at the local pinball parlor

    But i think domaining is great fun and a very good way to invest for the future , the internet is only 20 yrs old , so many good years ahead i think

    The reason i got into domaining is that a friend works at a registra here in australia , he told me about how people make money off typos , i said but why not just register a good name ....... and then the bug bit me , no regrets
    and i am hoping to trademark one of my names in the future and then develope ......... good luck to us all

    Hey nice idea.

    Isn't it funny how you make assumptions? I just thought you were about 23 for no apparent reason.

    I started out online like so many - looking to stay, a stay at home Mum ( I was actually almost sucked in to some shockers - thank God I found Profit Lance - much recommended for anyone completly new to internet marketing).

    I have a two and half year old boy and its every bit as challenging as it is rewarding.

    As for buying domains - can't really call myself a domainer yet - it was always going to grab at me because I love words, and have a million silly ideas - lethal combination it seems :)

    yes good luck to us all - now who's up next?

    Robyn

    I'm studying health science full time at uni and I work at a bottle shop. When I'm not selling alcohol I'm drinking it, and when I sober up I like to make money on the internet!

    I work as a Web Developer and Search Engine Marketer for DDNS.

    I've spent a lot of my spare time over the last 3 years researching various search engine optimisation strategies and during that period i've built countless websites for both clients and internal projects which has given me ample opportunity to test and refine my SEO techniques.

    Having the ability to devise strategies to bring in large quantities of traffic by ranking well in search engines has lead me to start purchasing a modest portfolio of domains i plan to develop.
