Get Your Own Domain

There is a funny email exchange that has been linked to fairly often in the last week in which a law firm sends a job offer for a law clerk position to someone via email. Because the sender typed the address incorrectly, the email ended up in the inbox of a second grader.

Futurelawyer draws some great advice from this story. He says:

“However, the most important part of the exchange for me was the advice to avoid Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, and other common domains. It would be impossible to mis-type the Futurelawyer’s email address, because, since it is my own domain, any email addressed to it comes to me or a member of my immediate family.”

His parting advice is simple but good: “So, if you aren’t in control of your own domain, get one.”
