A unique opportunity (time-limited offer!)

Just over a week ago, I registered the domain name a-unique-opportunity.com for a specific reason. It has served its purpose; I no longer need it and intend to allow it to expire in a year.

I’m not one to let things go to waste. I no longer need this domain name, but perhaps someone else does. Might that someone be you?

There are two options:

  1. I could transfer the domain name to you, either for a mutually agreeable fee – or for free, if your intended purpose for the name appeals to me.
  2. I could give you appropriate user access to the site to allow you to develop it entirely yourself. In this scenario:
    1. I would reserve the right to editorial control; I wouldn’t allow the site to be used for any unethical purpose.
    2. I would be happy to help with site development – but if your plan for it is profit motivated, I would want a cut!
    3. We would need to come to an arrangement regarding the renewal fees, as I would be responsible for those.

If you’re interested, please do get in touch with me using the form on my contact page.

    Intriguing. Are you willing to disclose the purpose of having registered this domain name?

      I don’t think there’s any harm in revealing that. I used it as the name of a microsite I built to submit an application to the Nielsen Norman Group for the post of ‘UX Specialist’ that they advertised last month. My application was unsuccessful, but I knew it was a long shot, as I didn’t really fit their requirements. (Part of the job specification was, paraphrasing, ‘a charismatic presence, able to speak confidently to large audiences’ – which is decidedly not me – ‘and willing to travel internationally’ – also not me; I vowed years ago never to travel by air again, as a measure to minimise my carbon footprint.) I had hoped to impress them enough that they’d find some way to shoehorn me into their organization, but it was not to be. C’est la vie.

        Fortune can be kind. It is SO lucky you didn’t get the job (whatever it was — I have not the vaguest regarding the meaning of UX). I am certain you would have been most unhappy globetrotting and addressing the multitude.

          Fortune has not been kind, either to myself or the world at large. In a different life, I would have enjoyed the globetrotting (I miss traveling, I enjoyed it), and only the non-pug-ugly are destined to be charismatic presenters.

          As for ‘UX’, it stands for ‘user experience’. I put an HTML <abbr> element on the ‘UX’, which should have been rendered with some kind of highlight; in a standard browser hovering the mouse over it reveals the abbreviation expansion. Of course, dumbphones don’t have mice; that feature doesn’t actually work properly on my own dumbphone. The dotted underscore is shown, but there’s no way to actually reveal the expansion – making it utterly pointless revealing the dotted underscore… technology: /eyeroll

    Very clever. I suspect you might make a pretty penny selling this domain name. Keep us posted on how it goes.

  3. Having read your reply to Dr. Bob, I think that the name of the domain was perfect. Suck that they didn’t see it that way (there’s too much focus on the amount you post and how many followers you have).

    At this point in time, I am ok with my free WordPress domain.

    Reblogged this on Wibble and commented:

    WordPress.com has begun reminding me that the domain name ‘a-unique-opportunity.com‘ is coming up for renewal, urging me to renew so that I don’t lose the name. I don’t intend to renew it. If you’re one of my genuine blogging buddies and can use it, please get in touch ASAP so I can transfer it to you.
