Back from Vacation at the Dominican Republic

Written by Zac Johnson

I’m sure you noticed there hasn’t been a new post on the blog in over a week. That’s because Reena and I just got back from a 5 day vacation to the Punta Cana Excellence Resort in the Dominican Republic. The whole vacation was fully paid for by Sponsored Tweets and the resort was all inclusive. I won the vacation as first prize in the Sponsored Tweets Referral contest a few months ago. To say the least… the trip was awesome and a million thanks to Sponsored Tweets!

So what else has happened over the past week.

Oh yea… I’m Engaged! :)
Yes, our trip to Dominican Republic was a special one and will always be remembered. Reena and I first met in high school and have been together ever since. After a nice romantic private dinner on the beach, I finally popped the question and we are now engaged! I finally made the best girl in the world an honest woman and I’ve never been happier!

I Purchased a New Site, Should You?
In my last article on the blog, I wrote an article asking users “Should You Buy an Established Web Site?“. The comments section has a ton of input and opinions on the topic, ranging from how much to pay for a web site and where to find the best sites for sale. Before leaving for my trip, I actually just completed a big site purchase. The site was established and has been online for over 9 years. I paid roughly 23 times monthly earnings. This may seem like a lot, but I feel I can greatly grow the site and it’s a great investment to add to my portfolio of sites. I’ll do another write up in a few weeks on the web site and how it’s performing.

  1. Congratulations on both.

    Is it rude to ask how much did it cost you to buy that site, because if it has been around for 9 years damn, probably cost a lot of money, eh?

    The site was purchased in the low five figures range. It continually makes two figures daily, but I'm confident with the site purchase.

  3. congrats on the engagement Zac. and good job on the sponsored tweets contest. vacations are always the funnest when they are paid by someone else aren't they.

  4. Congratulations to you and Reena!!!

    I've always wanted to go to Dominican Republic and a lot of my friends have told me about a city in DR called "Punta Cana". Did you get a chance to go there??? Heard really good input on the spot!!

    Also on your big site purchase, just out of couriosity would you mind saying what niche is the website??

  5. <a class="replyTo" href="#comment-112199" rel="nofollow">@Gabe | freebloghelp.com:

    No doubt about it, the engagement of course! I was going to write a separate post on the purchase site, but decided to throw it in.

    Yes, we went to the Punta Cana. It was amazing there. The site is a daily news / resource type of site.

  7. Best of luck on the big move to getting wed and the new site. Now you can find out if all that stuff those married guys said is true.

  8. Congratulations Zac,what a beautiful place to ask your favorite girl the most important question of your life.

  9. Congrats Zac! Wish all of you happy and have a next succeed for your new site. Vacation is my favorite too 🙂

    Regards

  10. Paying roughly 23 times monthly earnings isn't bad, especially if you have immediate ways to increase monthly earnings for the site.

  11. Zongrats Zac. I'm not really a guy that supports marriage but you think that will make your life better, why not try.

    One advice though…you should answer more on the contact forms 🙂 Sent you 2 messages and I feel like I'm talking to a wall when I use the 'contact us' button on the top…not a very comfortable feeling.

  12. First time on your website Zac and liking it already. Some real good resource for webmasters here. And yes, a huge congrats on your engagement.

  13. <a class="replyTo" href="#comment-112237" rel="nofollow">@Dare: Agreed. Gmail keeps tossing these into the spam folder and I forget the keep checking/responding to them.

  14. Great to hear man! Congrats! I look forward to hearing about the site you purchased more. I actually have a few sites I plan to put on the auction block soon :p

  15. Congrats Zac, I wish this moment will make both of you happy than before, I am married with 2 kids and I always support everybody who want to make a family. See the world through your children eyes will make you be a better man.

  16. What can I expect? What kind of tips do I leave? What is it like on the outside of the resort? Are the people there friendly?
