Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Should I continue my search for a .com, even if I have to settle on a less than preferred name, or are my feelings just plain silly and I should be happy with a .net?
Thanks for any advice!
Probabaly better than the .com version.

I know how it is, though; after you type in your 500th domain name, and it's already taken (invariably by someone who is doing nothing with it), it can start to seem a little ridiculous. But if you keep at it, eventually you'll find a good .com that's available.
The main thing is that it has to be a domain name that you really like, one that you'll be happy with 5 years from now. You don't want to have to change domains after you start getting some success.
Another thing you could do is go back and make a list of the top 20 or 30 domain names that are already registered and parked. Contact each of them and offer them $100 for the domain, take it or leave it. A lot of people register domains and never make squat from them. I bet you could get a domain that you'd be happy with for a small investment.
