Sorry, Not Sorry
Early in our quest to bring PJP V. 2.0 to fruition, Behind-The-Scenes-Tech-Guru Jason logged on to stake our claim in our very own corner of cyberspace by purchasing the URL for our yet-to-be built website. Except...peggyjeanspies.com was already owned by a person in Japan.
Despite Behind-The-Scenes-Tech-Guru Jason's very best efforts (and a lot of foot stomping on my part), the owner of the URL was unwilling to relinquish it. While I tried to convince Behind-The-Scenes-Tech-Guru Jason that we should fly directly to Japan and settle the matter in person, his common sense prevailed and he purchased pjpies.com and told me to get over it. He knows how to handle me.
Over the past week or so, I have been talking a lot about World Pie Domination and what it means to PJP. On a whim, I suggested to Behind-The-Scenes-Tech-Guru Jason that he log in and buy up worldpiedomination.com before Japan catches on and buys that out from under my nose as well.
So tonight, Behind-The-Scenes-Tech-Guru Jason confirmed that worldpiedomination.com was indeed available and he snapped it up for the bargain price of $22. And then on a whim, he checked peggyjeanspies.com and it appears that Japan has completely fallen behind in their game (or they got the message I was really miffed about the whole URL thing), because peggyjeanspies.com is now an available site. The previous owners let it lapse and their loss is our gain...because for $22, our URL now matches our name. And the people said "Amen."
So then I started to think...how could we maximize the ways Google suggests us to potential clients? I suggested pip.com and Missouripie.com...but someone beat us to it. But then we snapped up bestMissouripie.com, because if someone is going to Google "best Missouri pie", I want to be darn sure that they are pointed directly to PJP...just as they should be.
So now you can find us at pjpies.com, peggyjeanspies.com, worldpiedomination.com, and bestMissouripie.com. Type in any of those addresses and you'll land directly on our homepage. In the end, we spent $88, but how can you put a dollar value on my competitive nature?
Sorry, Japan. Not sorry.
