This time last month, my wife and I had were afforded an extraordinary opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.

The first bird was attending GoStrategic’s Transforum Event — a conference aimed at bridging the gap between spiritual truth and practical implementation.

The second bird was getting to spend time together with my wife and somewhat invest in our marriage together. 😍

And what a weekend we had commencing Thursday night and convening late Saturday evening.

Welcome to Texas Emoji Stickers Have Arrived!

Reading Time | 3 Minutes

While meeting a friend for a long overdue lunch at good ole’ Rudy’s BBQ here in Austin, Texas, I stumbled upon an interesting advertisement.

As most of you know, emoji have nearly hit every corner of the earth as one of the hottest forms of communication, especially amongst Gen-Xers, millennials and younger.

In fact, emoji have not only found their way into email marketing for businesses, but are even making a splash as domains. Yes, emoji domains are real!

But as for this particular ad, it appears that “Talkin’ Texan Just Ain’t Gonna Be The Same” with the latest release of Texas Emoji Stickers app (released February 22, 2018).

Out with .com and in with .pizza 🍕

Out of all places on earth to have found a company using a .pizza domain name as a primary digital presence, imagine how surprised I was to have had this encounter happen in my hometown.

In the mid to late 90’s as the world was coming online, Sherman, Texas had just crossed over 30,000 population mark.

Back then, the Chamber of Commerce, Yellow Pages and Sherman Democrat, now the Herald Democrat, were a business’ advertising staple to reach more customers and generate greater revenue.

There were not many businesses, if any back then, touting a web address of any sort.

I’m certain most businesses owners had no clue of what a web address was nor did they ever imagine the Internet would be what it it today, some 20 years later.

20 years later and having adding another 10,000 folks in population, I often don’t think of Sherman as a city of progressive technological advancement, especially for businesses using new top-level domains.

🏠 Keller Williams and The Moats Team Debut a Real Estate .ForSale Domain 🏘

I’m back with another domain discovery, and this time it’s a real estate domain using the .forsale new top-level domain extension.

I was driving east bound on Anderson Mill Road in Northwest Austin on my way to get a haircut.

I tend to be very observant of my surroundings while driving, on the lookout for domains being advertised on vehicles, billboards, and buildings.

As I was making a left turn at the intersection of Anderson Mill Rd and Parmer Rd to head Northbound towards Toll Road 45, my eye quickly made out Keller Williams and what looked to be a .forsale domain name advertised via a yard sign.

We’re heading into one of the longest week’s of preparation for most churches as they prepare for Good Friday services and Easter this coming Sunday.

Most churches deem this their “Super Bowl” Sunday in terms of attendance, having an uptick in guests since most opt to attend church with their families this special day of worship.

As I was preparing for this Sunday by getting a haircut, an Easter sign caught my eye on the way back to the office traveling westbound on Grand Avenue in Pflugerville, Texas.

Businesses Thrive Using “Down Under” City Top-Level Domain

Reading Time | 5 Minutes

When you’re into domains as much as I am, then you tend to value and study the use of all sorts of domains — no matter your preference.

As most know, I started this blog primarily because I often filter the world through my daily interactions and discovery of domain names used by all walks of life.

One of the things I cherish most about the domain industry is the various, diverse relationships that make up the industry. Talk about all walks of life. We, the domain industry, are that and more.

Today’s story is no different other than the fact that the domains I’ll share with you today come from the great down under.

Forget to register the .com with that .tv domain…?

From time to time, I stumble upon churches making good use of domains to promote their church and share their ministry with the world.

This past weekend, I was invited to sit on a panel at my church, MosaicChurchAustin.com. Mosaic hosted Every Nation’s 2018 Conference here in Austin March 2-3.

Impacting Media Through Conscious Intention

Reading Time | 3 Minutes

We’re all impacted, whether positive, negative, or in between, by the media in which we consume and produce. No matter how small or large our platforms, we’re all producing and consuming media powerhouses.

I was reminded of these very thoughts as I strolled by a poster tacked to a Rudy’s Bulletin Board on my way to consuming some breakfast taco goodness. 🤤
