    Domain name question for site content

    I have several domains, all with sites attached too them, and a few of them are actually going pretty well... but I do have one that is simply parked, as the initial reason for buying it never panned out.

    I also recently got Netflix, and have been watching a few instant movies a week. I've been reviewing these movies on my blog for an Occult Forum. This match is pretty bad as far as a money maker, so I am pondering using my parked domain to start up a blog for movies I review.

    Which leads me to my question...

    The domain is Rinskins.com (I'm currently pondering selling it: Domain Appraisal: Rinskins.com) but now I'm wondering if I could use it for the review site.

    I don't have the $10 to buy a new domain... in fact, I am not even sure at the moment if I have the $10 to renew this one next month, lol... but that's not why I am here.

    Should I try selling that domain for as much as I can get out of it, or try to market it as a review site?

    I could easily use the name Rin or even Rinskins to write the review... but in your collective opinions would that be marketable at all? Or should I sell it in favor of using the money to buy a new (possibly more relevant) domain?

    Rinskins.com is 4 years old, so it's got the plus of age, and it's pretty easy to remember (but I'm not sure how easy to connect with the content).

    So what are your opinions on this?

    (If this thread would be better suited to domaining, could a mod toss it up there?)

    Thanks!
    Q
    My Homesteading blog is not worth reading
    My Magick site is not worth it's server space
    My Occult forum is likely something you'd not have an interest in
    My wife's Hedgewitch site is worth checking out though...

    The current state of the domain market doesn't make it easy to sell a brandable domainname.

    If you decide to develop this name -for a movie blog for example- do you really want to get stuck with this domain? Perhaps you will look at this domain later and wonder why you didn't use a fresh domain that you really like, for the same price. The danger with brandable domains is that people tend to get attached to it (at least i do sometimes) while often it isn't worth much.

    In your case, I would look for more possible uses for the domain.
    Rinski (name of a character?) NS (abbreviation), Rinski, the Naughty Sorceress
    Or perhaps you can catch a nice $5 domaindrop at godaddy?

    Good points...

    I've kept the name thus far due to the hope I could eventually do SOMETHING with it.... now I have something to do, but it does not fit, lol.

    I'm still attached to it though.

    (as for uses for it, check out my appraisal thread, RIN is almost a popular name)
