This might be a really fun BLOG.
I'm letting you all in on the ground floor. I'm trying to come up with the name of a business that can also be a dot com (Emphasis on dot COM. It can't be .net or .biz). If you come up with something better than what I have below, I'll buy you a $10 meal.
Here's the RULZ of the game. (If you don't follow them, you are not eligible for the prize.)
First, it must have one of the following words (or variation of the words)
- graphic (but don't be crude)
- typeset (typesetting is also a possibility)
Second, it can be no longer than 18 characters without dashes or other symbols. Letters and numbers only.
Third, you must check to see if it is available first. Go here: http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/index.jsp. Type in your ideas for a domain name like "super.com", if it does not have an "X" in the .com column then post it to this blog. If I like it I add it to my list. Should I choose your idea as my business name you will get credit on my Website and a $10 meal on me. The meal will be in the form of a gift card of your choice (if I can buy it online) or PayPal deposit.
Fourth, when you post your ideas, send me a separate e-mail with your entries to charlesmccown(at)charter.net. Replace "(at)" with @ symbol. This is my only way to get back in touch with you to send you your prize.
Fifth, if I come up with a variation of something someone else posts. Partial credit will be given on my site, but no gift card or PayPal credit will be givien.
Sixth, contest ends May 31st at 5:00 pm Central time. Check back on June 1st to see the winner.
Here's what I've come up with...
These three play on the idea of typesetting paragraphs and graphical layout:
I just like the sound of these:
These are other possibilities:
ENJOY THE GAME!
