Hello, happy Thursday, and welcome to the Domain Investing Substack 🕺 For those who are new here, the photos I post above are usually from San Francisco along my regular biking route 🚴.

I’m excited to say that my first issue of the Domain Investing Substack this year ended up getting the most reads and clicks ever, so, I hear ya’ - keep it coming, and I will 🥳
As many of you know, or at least you’ll know now, NamesCon is next week and I am really looking forward to it. I’m speaking on two panels and have a handful of domains in the auction so it should be one heck of a week.

I wrote this tweet yesterday which felt really good:
And let me just say again, phew - that poem from Amanda Gorman was absolutely spectacular. All that being said, I know you all came here to hear what non .COM sales caught my eye last week and what you might have missed from my blog, so let’s get to it.
