Sigh for the woes of an all-too common name in a world increasingly based on recognizable bylines, because I get a lot of wandering internet traffic from California of people most likely looking for this guy (with whom I did exchange e-mails once while working on a minuteman-related story in South Carolina).
But a reminder to all aspiring freelancers, writers, solo musicians, artistic people or anyone who hopes to have people find them easily in the post-SEO age: buy your domain name, and don’t. let. that. ish. expire. EVER. Seriously folks: even if you don’t do anything with it right away, it costs $10 a year. You’ll regret it if someone else snatches it up, especially if it’s some pesky Right Coast freelancing journalist foiling your campaign for state assembly.

It’s because when we unveiled the Brokelyn Beer Book back in February, the colorful coupon packets for 25 beers at 25 Brooklyn bars (for $25) sold out in a matter of hours. For those who swooped-in early, it’s been six months of beers on the book. For those who missed out, it’s been one long wait for this moment: the announcement of the second Brokelyn Beer Book!
