    For people who want to ensure that they secure their .Blog domain name, the .Blog landrush period started today, and it runs for one week. .Blog general availability begins on November 21.

    Don't see much in the way of "blog" domain sales nowadays, it's almost as if the word is out of fashion.
    That said no doubt many will be sucked in to yet another gtld money maker.

    I actually do see them sell regularly on Godaddy, but in the low to mid $xxx range. I do think .blog will be a success for Wordpress/Automattic in the sense that people starting a blog most of the time aren't going to care particularly about the domain extension, and may well buy a .blog domain, particularly if it is bundled with other "blog services". But for domainers, I don't see much upside.
