I noticeded that your domain "gamingtrend.com" expires in a few weeks, which means that it is going to be publicly available soon. I'd like to buy this domain name before it expires.

I assume that you are not interested in keeping it for yourself.

I can buy this domain for $60 plus any renewal related expenses. What do you think?

It'll be hard to resist, but I'm going to stick to my guns and ask for a little more than that for the site.  I don't think I'll be retiring any time soon. slywink

On the other hand, imagine my delight if I were to open up my web browser to GT as I do every morning...but instead of being greeted by gaming information and random discussions of Canadian beheading incidents, I was instead met with "CHEERLEADERS WHO DO IT ALL!" and "GROW 4 INCHES OVERNIGHT!". 

thanks for taking that away from me, KD.  just...thanks.  i needed that 4 inches.  icon_evil

i love the 'what do you think?' question.  what does he expect you to say, "yeah, that's a great offer for an established domain name which i've run for years.  if i had to put a price tag on the work i have invested into this site for years, that and the out of pocket expenses would equal $60."  :rollseyes

How is that possible? He said he was sending it to me once I gave him my address, bank account info and SSN.

No no no...you got it all wrong.  He was an Asian Prince, deign to rule - but got kicked out.  He told me that the Nigerian prince was something he made up so that you guys could send in your $100,000 (each).  He's collecting all of that to give me my percentage for pulling it out of the bank for him.  I only had to pay $50,000 - and I'm expecting a nice return and get $8 million. 

So my offer is $70.01 for the domain name  icon_twisted

I recently saw a site that looks at your web site or blog and tells you how much it is worth and how much ad revenue you could get per day.  The result was pretty depressing.  I think Popehat was worth about three quarters of an hour with an Elliot Spitzer girl.
