I was Emptormaven

When I first started this blog in 2006 I called it “Emptormaven” – from Latin emptor (buyer) and maven (specialist) – and I bought and hosted it under the domain name emptormaven.com. I had intended to write about lots of products, but the majority of my posts ended up being about firearms.

By 2020 I was dropping my pseudonym across my online content, so I moved the blog under my david.bookstaber.com domain and set up a 301 redirect for the last year I owned the emptormaven.com domain.

I recently discovered someone else bought the domain name and is hosting gun-related content on it! I guess I had created significant SEO value. So to whoever is using the name now: You’re welcome.
