Digital Marketing and Social Media Strategy

How a homemade colon cleanse taught me a lesson

Dave Made This

When I started blogging in 2005 I was going to use it to promote my web design skills. I thought I was a good designer, but in retrospect I had lots of room for improvement. Lots.  I decided to call the blog Dave Made This, which was the name of my mediocre web site design business.

I decided to take blogging more seriously and start writing about interesting things I found on the web with an emphasis on marketing.

I recently missed the boat on renewing my domain. It’s not the end of the world to me, because my content is still live on and archived in the Way Back Machine.

I really should have paid attention to the domain renewal reminder emails. I should have coughed up the coin after the first reminder, but I didn’t.

The moral of the story is easy. Don’t procrastinate making payments for your domain renewals, you never know where the URL will end up!

UPDATE: The punch line is in the link kids, you need to click the link ;)

    The Headline was incredible – the problem – the content was a disappoinment. I was hoping to read a funny story of you, an object, and ….well you get the point.

    Keep writing, just make sure your headlines don't make your content a let down.

    Sorry, I had to comment again. I'm still laughing so hard at your Title for this Post.

    A better opening line could have been –

    “Today, the shit hit the fan..literally. Not to mention the carpet, my bed, flip flops, my dog, my girlfriends favorite CD, her hairbrush, and completely ruined my ability to clinch my sphincter when needed. Warning to you, an amateur colon clinse can result in a mess.”

    The Title was so good, I think you could write a short story.

    HAHAHAHA – thanks for the laugh Dave, you're the best :)

  • I aim to please :)
    Thanks for the feedback Rodney. I'm glad the post wasn't about the
    subject so much.


  • I agree with Rodney here – the content didn't justify the title. I'm left wanting and a bit confused. Although, if I chose to think about it hard enough, I'd probably eventually come to understand.

  • Good to hear from you Daniel. Clearly you didn't click the link at the end of the post.

  • Just saw it, buried down below. At the very end… um, okay. ;)

  • Tsk tsk tsk. :)

  • sometimes waybackmachine are great, you'll see internet revolution on there.
