HughesFamily.com finally expired (someone let it drop) and I was able to pick it up from the GoDaddy auctions. For any other other bidders who may visit here to see who ended up with this: It’s in good hands. Don’t feel too bad- I was ready to go into the thousands to get this if I needed to (and Dave, if I was bidding against you again, man… I swear… I’ll kick your butt).
My plans for this domain are simple. I’ll optimize it for keywords like “Howard Hughes” and sell ad space thus netting millions! Nope. I’ll probably just use this as a hub for my family. Most of them are tiny now, but soon they will be using the Internet and, instead of actual family gatherings, we can meet online (virtually) here at HughesFamily.com.
I’ve popped in some links if you want to learn more about us, what we do, what we like (so you can send us gifts, of course). Yes indeed- very pleased to get this domain.
As the former registrant of this domain I’m glad to see someone putting it to good use. I had similar plans for it but could never get my family to use it, so it ended up being just used for email. Eventually my family stopped using that to so I figured it was time to let it go. Good luck with your blog!
Good to hear from you! I don’t know if I’ll have much success either, but I’m going to give it a shot. It seems like this would be a hard domain to give up, but I certainly appreciate the opportunity it presented. Long live the glorious name of Hughes.
I’ve been wanting this domain for a while but never could seem to get a hold of it. If you ever want to get rid of it let me know.
I don’t think I’ll ever want to “get rid of it.” Unless it turns out to be cursed or something…
