As I do every Sunday, I made my way over to Mosaic Church Austin to share corporate worship with fellow followers, and brothers and sisters in Christ.
One of the first things a typical domain investor learns is to stay away from alphanumeric domains and to strictly focus on .com domains.
This is not to state that there are not alphanumeric .com domains worth investing in. In fact, there are a few alphanumeric domain combinations, albeit a small pool, that are worth investing.
However, most alphanumeric .com domains are not worth purchasing as domain investments, depending on the letters and numbers used, and their respective positions.
It was another fun-filled weekend of Town and Country Soccer. If you remember in my last post, I thought summer had passed.
Boy was I wrong about that! It was quite hot this past weekend, especially for a 1:30 pm soccer game for 4-6 year olds. Nevertheless, our little team did well.
I meant to make the post a month ago. But as usual, life events took precedence and I simply had to hang on for the ride, snapping pics along the way.
I’ve lived in Austin for the past 13 years and counting.
I originally lived in Pflugerville, a suburb just north of Austin, for 4-5 years when I first arrived. However, my wife and I (and our growing family) have called Northwest Austin our home base for the last 9 or so years.
Austin has grown quite a bit over this time and still growing. In fact, many hope that folks will stop moving to Austin to curb soaring real estate prices and reduce the economic constraints of congested traffic, to put it lightly.
Nevertheless, it’s been a fun experience watching Austin burst at its seams in exponential growth.
It’s heating up in Texas, and things are getting quite active around Volente Beach.
As I work the days away, I often see party buses to and fro with intense beach laughter and frolicking.
There’s a bit more loud music playing throughout the day than the norm, and the marina island is always packed with a party barge or two in full effect.
This past Friday, I had the pleasure of attending the our church’s last day of vacation bible school.
My wife, as well as a number of volunteers, had faithfully served throughout the week in various capacities.
Across the United States, and likely throughout the world, Vacation Bible School is one of those events that kicks off summer in a special way.
This past weekend was another fun filled weekend for the House of Brown. We ventured downtown to attend Bubblepalooza!, presented by The Long Center and HEB, on the City Terrace at The Long Center.
I didn’t really know what to expect or how our two boys would respond (our little girl is only 11 months and just goes with the flow for now). Fortunately, Bubblepalooza! was a hit.
I encountered another billboard while on my home that made me think about the importance of defensively registering domains.
I was able to quickly and safely pull off the road to capture a snapshot as the billboard stuck out to me for a number of reasons.
The billboards’s blue, white, and black hues are simple in design and layout, having an appealing white call-to-action text on a blue background.
Next, the billboard contained the logo and blue text describing its services placed on a white background.
Finally, at the bottom of the billboard in white text on a background was the domain name and phone number.
Welcome back! As I was in search of a sporting event the night we arrived home from the hospital after the arrival of our beautiful baby girl, I encountered MLB game.
Not much of a baseball fan outside of the Texas Rangers, I decided to let channel surfing rest and watch a few innings.
As innings progressed, I took notice of a billboard behind home plate.
