Websites for the kids

Today I finally acted on something I’ve been meaning to do for more than a year. I registered both of our kids names as domains.

Now, I don’t know if this is for everyone. But for me it makes sense on a lot of fronts.

#1 I can buy today for $10 what may cost thousands when they are adults.

#2 I got to teach the kids about what I do and how I do it. They got to pick the pictures, tell me what they wanted, etc.

#3 They are so excited about having their own websites. Mom and dad talk about theirs all the time. This is just the beginning for each of them.

#4 I have a few more sites i can practice some skills on, quietly.

Essentially, these are just placeholders. But as time goes on I can see us growing these to something more all-encompassing as time goes on.

  1. Mel- if something isn’t owned, you can register it for about $10/year. I looked up your domain… it is owned by someone trying to sell it for profit. Bummer!

  2. love both sites! I’ve thought of doing this myself – you beat me to the punch! although I’ll probably just stick with the family web site as we already have four girls and are thinking about more. WHEW!
