The Birth of Lostnorfound.com

So I had wanted to start a travel blog for months. The very immature reason it hadn't happened until today was a lack of interesting and appropriate domain names that remained available. I think the first name I had wanted for the blog/website was Petestreet.com, but I soon found that a man in the US had it tucked safely under his pillow. I had thought of many names since, but they were all either unavailable, or beyond the budget of a 19 year old student. Today I discovered that lostandfound.com is optimistically being used as a global lost & found service. However! I struck gold when I found that the domain name lostnorfound.com was still available for the price of a city bus ticket.

I think it has a nice ring to it, it satisfies me cosmetically, and I think my future self will appreciate the ambiguity. I promise much is to come from this $1.80 purchase.

  1. Congrats on your new baby! And yes, as a random note, I can totally relate to your domain name issue. In 2008 I started my travel blog with ShibuyaDaze.com because I was living in the Shibuya Ward of Tokyo. Of course three years later as I'm backpacking through Central America I've grown so f'n tired of answering the "what is Shibuya?" question that I decided to change the name to HoliDaze....but unfortunately some ski tour company already owns that .com and I was forced to add a "the" to the front of mine. Anyway, point is you're not alone. Oh and you might want to buy petemahon.com before someone else does ;)

    1. Hi Derek! Haha I can see that the questions would get frustrating. I'm hoping to head to Japan next March. I'll have to send you a message and ask you about the best spots. Loving your post on the Rickshaw run. I'll be in touch :)
