Assignment #8 – The Domain Name Game

When first thinking of domain names for my site some of my first thoughts were what would symbolize a community based site that promotes the expression of ideas. After running through names like thinktank, ideahouse,  my namesake lcollins and a tie in with my clothing site safehavenblog. I finally settled on the simpler With this site I wanted to have an open source chat feature and I’m also exploring options on the submission of user creations.

My worries are of course potential bugs and possibly the need for moderation or restrictions. I’m excited about having a domain but, when you have so many options on where you want to take it its difficult to stick to one focus. I don’t want my site to end up cluttered with adding to many things.

The Pages I frequent the most right now are youtube and instagram. Of course Instagram being my ultimate time waster and for no reason I’ll just find myself scrolling though it just to get a five minute update.
Youtube probably tops the list for me though as I still find myself going through rabbit holes of information I never thought I needed to know. Plus things I’m generally interested in usually have around 500 different people talking about it so there that. A lot of my learning comes from youtube (for better or worse) as it is my first stop for every how to. For My site I actually wanted to borrow elements from both youtube and instagram to make like a user friendly creative factory lol.
