Should your business register domain variations?

Another season of soccer is just around the corner. I know this because we recently registered our oldest son.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of experiencing 5 year olds attempting to mimic the adult version of soccer, then you’re missing the laugh of your life.

Nevertheless, as we were leaving from completing registration, the following domain captured my attention as it was prominently displayed via a wrapped vehicle: RainTechGutterSolutions.com.

This week I’m traveling to attend one of the biggest annual conferences for domain investors: NamesCon.

As I await my flight this early Sunday morning, I briefly checked and responded to email and social media notifications.

As I checked Twitter direct messages, I stumbled upon a photo sent from a fine gent living in Australia who knows my fascination, passion, and love for domain names.

.org Domains Takeover Rudy’s Bulletin Boards

Now that things are somewhat quieting down from the holidays, I was able to do a bit of end of year cleaning.

I’ve tidied up my office a bit and managed to wrangle my email inbox into a somewhat manageable state to start the new year off right.

As I clean up my inbox, I ran across old a collage of photos I snapped one morning while at Rudy’s meeting a group of Christian men in our bi-weekly Entrepreneurial Council.

All I Want for Christmas is a .Com…

Indeed, “Christmas time is here…Happiness and cheer[.]” It’s certainly fun for all that children their favorite time of the year.

Christmas is one of the House of Brown’s most favorite holidays to experience collectively.

And just like the peanuts gang sings yearly, we’ve had snowflakes in the Austin air. We’ve sang carols everywhere while keeping to olden times and ancient rhymes of love and dreams too share.

We’ve taken trips to nativity scenes and Christmas light shows as well as enjoy our kiddos participating in their school programs.

A Night Out at Mozart’s Christmas Lights

What a week we had last week when our regularly scheduled Texas weather was interrupted with an early white Christmas for one night.

The snow and ice have long melted, but the ole’ Christmas Spirit is alive and well here in Austin, Texas.

Having a joyous night out at Main Street Bethlehem a few weeks back, my family and I ventured towards Lake Austin to take in the Christmas Light experience Sponsored by Mozart’s and Hula Hut.

A Joyous Night Out at Main Street Bethlehem

Well, it’s that time of year. The leaves have long changed colors and fallen to the ground.

Along with mulit-color lights arrives familiar holiday classic compositions.

And as the House of Brown transitions from Thanksgiving to warmly embracing Christmas and all it has to offer, we took a trip one-hour northwest to the city of Burnet, Texas.

Thanksgiving, Travel, and Domain Encounters – Part I

Many Americans will head out on the highways and byways this Thanksgiving to partake of good ole turkey and dressing, the timeless fruitcake and make a memories (hopefully good ones) with family and friends.

Our family is no exception. It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since we last celebrated Thanksgiving with my side of the family in hustling and bustling metropolis of Sherman, Texas.

My family and I chose to travel bright and early the day before Thanksgiving, hoping to avoid the bumper-to-bumper gridlock that can occur from time to time along highways 35 and 75.

Fortunately our 5-hour trip was smooth sailing and without incident. In fact, I consider the trip a goldmine with the added bonus of all the domain encounters I’ll soon share.

Simply an early morning Splash ’n Dash of domains

A few months ago, our good friend that competed in Austin’s CapTex Triathlon recently competed in the 2017 USAT Aquathlon National Championship, hosted by Pure Austin Fitness at Pure Austin Quarry Lake.

In general, triathlons are a new experience and a whole new world for me to understand.

More so, having a triathlon athlete living with us has opened my and my family’s minds and lives to the importance of healthy living.

It’s not like we didn’t know prior, but actively living life with our “oldest daughter” has brought about a good and positive change in the House of Brown.

Nevertheless, I hadn’t heard of the USAT Aquathlon National Championship, but learned that it’s simply an early morning Splash ’n Dash. 🙂
