After five years of writing at the NamePros blog, I decided to create my own blog in May 2020. In the seven months since, JamesNames.com has been well supported by the domain name industry’s wonderful participants.

Also, in those seven months, some of the stories, news pieces, and data-driven articles I’ve written have been well received. Here, I’m listing the top ten articles from JamesNames.com in 2020, ranked in descending order by the number of visitors each article received.
