    Question Found a good domain name, but...

    I've found a good domain name,
    that's available, but it could be under any category.

    It could be Entertainment, Music, Celebrity-related, Art, Webmastering, Online Movies, Games, or Anime.

    But I don't know what I want the site to be based on.

    Can anyone offer advice to me?

    If I'm understanding you right, I'd do something that interests you. That's always the best start for a website.

    Pick one of the categories that you listed above which interests you the most and start building from there.

    That way you'll enjoy putting it together a whole lot more and won't mind updating it as/when you need to!

    You would really need to divulge the domain name to expect any good advice.

    I'm with simontheak here. Choose something that you are interested in, and base the site around that.

    Anything else, and you'll just get bored updating it, and will probably stop eventually.

    Do you have any hobbies... video games, etc? Perhaps you can make a list of the things you are interested in, and then pick one.

    Hello Rabid

    My suggestion: discover what it is you like the best, then work on developing a site to showcases that interest.

    Pick something from your interest - a character, style, motto, etc. - and highlight that subject. Create your own logo to emphasize your subject matter. Pick topics and content that are relevant.

    What I always do is get out the 'ol pencil and sketchpad and start drawing out ideas. After I get something that looks good I scan it, open it in Photoshop, and start embellishing on it.

    With persistance you can achieve your own unique site.
