I recently discovered that a blogger has taken to using the “Geek in Heels” moniker for her own site. (Thank you, Google Alerts, for giving me the heads-up!)
The blog is relatively new and does not seem to have many readers. However, the writer is Asian like myself and our blogging topics are bound to overlap sooner or later.
It is precisely for these reasons that I began to wonder if I should protect the “Geek in Heels” name by grabbing all the popular top-level domains (.com, .net, .org, etc). Currently, I only own geekinheels.com.
I don’t think my site is that popular, but it has been featured on popular sites such as BoingBoing and Neatorama. I hardly ever get many comments, but I do get a decent amount of visitors and have a Google PageRank of 3. I receive at least one email per week regarding advertising and/or promoting products people would like me to write about on this blog.
I don’t know if this site will ever become very popular, or if I’ll make decent money from it. However, I do know that I love the “Geek in Heels” moniker and plan on using it for a long time. I also plan on blogging for as long as possible.
Based on this information, do you think I should invest the money in buying new domain names with different top-level domains? What about variations of geekinheels, such as geek-in-heels.com?
