TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
According to goddaddy.com, that URL is owned by Tracy Pearson. I think that what happens is, the register agency fills the page as a placeholder. I have a couple of domains registered, too. I also have not yet put up a useful site, and when I look at my URLs I see the same kind of thing, a page full of links that are not of my making. I think you don't really have a worry. I looked at your site, and it looks to me to be just placeholding stuff. If going to your URL took you to an actual web site where someone else was trying to sell jewelry, then you'd have a worry. I believe once you put an actual web site on a server and link the URL, you should be fine.
