When I registered for my domain last June, I was dismayed to learn that www.grammarvandal.com was already taken. I tried out a few different titles for the site but didn’t like any of them, so I bought www.thegrammarvandal.com.
I visited www.grammarvandal.com and saw that there was nothing on the page but the Web address. I emailed the owner to see if anything was being done with the site, and I never heard back.
I visited www.grammarvandal.com while at work today, and it has been developed.
Check it out.
I created a logo a while ago, and theirs looks JUST like mine. That sucks. Well, I guess it’s my own fault that I didn’t get it out there.
I am pleased, however, to notice that when you google “grammar vandal,” their page doesn’t show up until the second page of results. My site is first, followed by my NPR interview, followed by the Boston Globe feature, followed by various blogs and informal press over the Internet.
It does make me feel weird, though — like I never should have chosen to include a “the” in the Web address.
What do you think?
