@Joeguy1014 A very true and inspiring post for new domainers like me. Thanks for this article
Hello! So if i find numeric domain with 6 or less numbers in hand search i should get it?
I'd recommend doing your research before buying any name. I'm personally not very knowledgeable about numerics. I know that any 6N used to have at least a little value, but I'm not sure that's still the case.
Thanks @Joeguy1014 for the great information, I hope you did your first sale by now, me not yet, still learning, reading a lot and watching videos. Thanks
What a fantastic and honest write up......and as you said, I'm actually sat at my kitchen table on my own reading this!!
I'm really new to domaining and have simply fallen in love with it!
Like you, I've rushed into some purchases but hey ho!
You talk about about finding your strengths.....I honestly think mine is imagining up new domain names and not buying up expired ones but I have that type of brain.
Thanks again for taking the time to write this up for newbies like me.
Really informative and well-written article! Thanks a lot
Eye opening post, thank you very much.
Any chance I could be added to your beginner domain group? I am chomping at the bit to soak up as much as possible and learn. Thanks so much for considering!
I am interested in being added to the discussion grp
NIce post Joey, Best of luck to all of us
Great post Joe.
Good article for newbies and experienced domain investors alike.

You need to follow your own advice!!
"Kettle chip" is common terminology for a kettle cooked potato chip. Not sure I follow...
@MR PACKER - A reference for you, from a January 2007 court ruling:
If you have some evidence that contradicts the above assertion that "Kettle Chip" is a generic term, I'd definitely be interested in seeing it.
Additionally, I don't appreciate the off-hand, accusatory way in which you implied that I was guilty of trademark infringement. Certainly there are a lot of other domain names that fall into more dangerous, legally gray areas... maybe even some that I own. But if you'd like to have a discussion about them, please do so in a constructive way that can benefit other members.
Thanks for the comment, @SamDam. I had sold a few domains back in April when you posted, but was still in the red overall (losing money). Since then I've been fortunate to sell some more names, including my first few four figure sales. Nothing crazy, but its enough to say that I've actually made a small amount of money from domaining.
I tend to be a slow learner in general, and domain investment has proven to be no different. Planning to keep plugging away and build slowly. Hopefully in a couple more years I'll have progressed even further.
Hope you've also done well in the past year!
Ťhank you so much！
Dear Sittingducks -- thanks for the invitation to you beginner group. A couple of hours on Namepros and I think I might need pre-K
Thanks for sharing your perspectives, Joe. I had never considered numeric domain names, and thanks to your candor I'll stick with words. Having said that I assume that US postal ZIP codes are reserved words. However I haven't found the specific documentation of that point. Perhaps you have?
