There have been a number of domain industry blogs that have come onto the scene and disappeared shortly there after. I seem them one day on Domaining.com, and a few months later, the blog is nowhere to be found. Writing a blog regularly isn’t all that easy, so who can blame people when the pack it in and decide not to write any longer.
Jamie Zoch wrote the DotWeekly blog for quite a while. He had a unique insight, and you could regularly count on Jamie to write something interesting or thought provoking. He was always looking into registration patterns and things he found to be interesting, and quite often, I found those things interesting, too.
It seemed like he wrote his blog because he enjoyed it rather than as a means to earn income. Of course, when you’re spending a great deal of time blogging, you should have something to show for it, especially if it comes at the expense of spending time with family or working on other projects.
In any case, I miss reading Jamie’s insights, and I hope he returns to blogging.
