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.

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.

A Christmas Pie Worth Talking About

Well, Christmas has come and gone just like that, in a twinkle of an eye.

The Christmas tree sits bare with gifts no longer underneath it, and discarded boxes and wrapping paper are not far behind.

Toys have been played with and meals have been had or soon to be. And oh what meals we’ve had with dinner soon on the way.

What a joy it’s been to celebrate the birth of Christ with family, friends, and neighbors this season.

Speaking of neighbors, one of my neighbors so graciously shared a gift that has me writing at this at this very moment.

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.
