.com vs .org

I could have started writing again long ago, if not because of the pain of having to come up with a blog name and decide between .com and .org.

Yes, I didn’t have to find a host and shit but I’d look as if I’m a serious blogger if I had my own domain, advised SP.


So I finally came up with a name and within seconds, my second problem became non-existent.

.com was taken.

Mixed feelings I had. On one hand, I was relieved – one real life dilemma solved; on the other hand, I was annoyed – who in the world thought of the same name as I did.

Turns out, Programs for Troubled Teens owns it.


They specialize in Troubled Teens Programs, Christian Boarding Schools, Teen Help, Military Boot Camp and an array of other products and services.

Now you know.

I’m non-profit but I think we really should swap domain extension.

Totally unrelated, just wanted to share a quote from an interview I read today

(on the failures of people who are delusional about their prospects) “…I feel worse for the people who are not delusional. They just miscalculated. They tried.” – Glenn Fogel, Priceline Group’s Head of Worldwide Strategy, Planning and Corporate Development in an interview with Skift

Delusion is a survival mechanism. I stand by that.
