Just want to say to discouraged people whether top earners or newbies, when I hear you guys are discouraged, I found it helpful because well, misery loves company , it was just nice to hear even super good namers go through slumps, and for me I found, a few times, I thought of quitting or backing off, I ended up getting a win. I took at as an encouraging sign from the universe, the timing on the win couldn't have been better I hope you guys get one. AFTER I Get mine, lol, hard times. The first win is like catching your first fish. I do feel it is getting harder somehow and initially for me the splits didn't seem worth the effort, so this thread encouraged me, as links said it was letting us know that there was a possibility here. (I still think we need to cap the amount of submissions we can put in to a lower amount and I tend to agree think it makes the contest holder (and us) have to work way to hard) It made me feel better about losing :), put a little humanness into this. I don't consider it wasted time, because it has opened up a whole new world for me, and I feel like I have my finger on the pulse. I learned a lot of apps, short domains, new places, new business concepts ect. Have a great day everyone, don't let a little controversy put a pin in your balloon.
