When you’re trying to come with clever brand names that have an available domain name, you’ll soon discover you own a bunch of names that sound good.. but you don’t have much use for them.
One such name I registered a few years ago was Bzuka.com (think Bazooka). I knew it was clever, but had no idea what I’d use it for until just recently.
I’m a big fan of Envato’s site network and one of their sites is CodeCanyon. A place where programmers and developers sell scripts, plugins and all kinds of neat code.
I saw some scripts that let a user create their own “quotes site”. And then found one developer who had not only had a quotes script, but also jokes, riddles and facts.
So I said.. hmm. People on Facebook and Twitter are always looking for content to update their profiles with… so since a Bazooka is something you blast things with, then Bzuka could be a place to find content to blast to your followers.
Anyhow, it was a good enough reason for me so I bought the scripts and then built the entire site in about 45 minutes.

Sometimes nothing makes you feel better than organizing your desk, your closet, your car etc. I know I lead an exciting life, but there’s just something about consolidating your “stuff”.
So I got to thinking… since WordPress makes it so easy to export pages/posts and import them into another site, why not just clean out some of my old personal sites that I don’t really do much with and merge the content into one site.
Now these sites aren’t really big money makers, so I’m not worried about rankings or traffic.
However I suspect that what I did tonight will actually increase the total traffic since it will be easier for me to focus on just one site, and Google may index everything differently then it did before.
I had an old marketing blog at NewbieReport.com, a personal blog at DanielNickerson.com, and I also owned DanNickerson.com.
Since everyone knows me as “Dan Nickerson”, I just decided to bite the bullet and make that my primary branded site. I also use it for my email, so it just makes sense.
If you’ve been thinking about combining multiple sites into one, here’s how I did it.. and it was pretty easy.
It took about 15 minutes.

I thought about inserting a long diatribe about some major life changes this summer, and how I’m in the middle of a personal defragging process. But then I realized that the one sentence above pretty much sums it up and you read that crap all day on Facebook.. Don’t you?
I’ve also come to the realization that creating products and developing ideas on my own is not producing the results that I want in my life. I have so many live projects, projects that I want to do, and try to do that it’s incredibly stifling to my productivity and goals.
When it comes to online marketing I’ve got the skillset to create, develop and launch a product, not in months, weeks, or days.. but literally in hours. I’ve had many, many people tell me no one works faster.
When I work on consulting projects where I get to ideate freely and riff ideas, I often leave clients astounded by the possibilities I’ve presented..
Yet, above all that.. I’m obsessive about my personal customer support for my thousands of customers. And literally someone needs to slap me hard and tell me to stop working 7 days a week, 15 hours a day.
