When I decided to make a new website, I came up with a bunch of different domain names. It’s hard, because nearly all good (and bad) names are already taken. Even a seemingly obscure domain name such as BazingaPunk.com (a Sheldon quote from The Big Bang Theory) is occupied.
I showed a few of my suggestions to my friend Nellie and she thought I should pick ASmoothSea.com, so I decided to follow her advice. The name is the first part of an old English proverb: “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.” Or maybe more accurately: “A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner.”
Yet another popular variation of the quote is “A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor.” I prefer the first version, though. Perhaps mainly for SEO purposes, I collected some of the top images based on this English proverb. It’s a saying I enjoy and can relate to.
