Some New Projects

Hey folks, I’ve been getting some correspondence from some people who would like to see me keep this blog going, so I’ve promised myself to do that. I thought I’d get folks up-to-date with why I haven’t been back here in such a long time. First of all, my day job as an environmental engineer with Bock and Clark is cranking and occupies the great majority of my time. At this point in my career, I take great pride in helping a company succeed and grow, by maximizing my skills developed from over 20 years of hands-on experience.

During the evening and weekends, I’ve been keeping myself extra busy with several new projects. The first is my new web hosting blog and community forum at Hosted.org. Every website in the world is hosted, so this website is a great place to discuss and critique your web hosting provider! The site has not been easy to get up and running, but seems to be running very smoothly now. It has almost 50 active members as of the time I write this, which is not too bad for being out of the gates for less than a year. I have learned that terms like hosted and hosting are very hard to rank for in Google. As a result, I’ve had no help from the big G getting the word out about this site. I have focused on using social media such as Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest and others. So far, I’m very pleased with the results, despite the numerous hours I have into this project.

Foampix, another side business I started in 2012, has taken a bit of a backseat, although I still get orders trickling in. The big mistake I made when I got this off the ground was limiting myself with the name, product and associated Foampix flash website. It happens to be the first website I ever created and while I’m proud of it, because it is a flash site, it has serious limitations in regards to ranking on any search engines, which has severely limited the business! I have since invested in several alternative domain names and plan to rebrand the business over the coming months. Many people have requested my pictures in different formats such as canvas, metal and different sized printed photos not on foam. As such, I thinks this makes a lot of sense. I have lots of new photographs I have taken, but have been reluctant to print any more inventory in light of the change.

VinsDomains, another side business I started in 2012, has gained some significant legs, earning me an extra 5 digit income a year! This has probably taken most of my extra time, but has begun to pay off in a big way. Hosted.org and many other developed websites are a part of the VinsDomains umbrella, as well as several other developed websites that are generating income, at least as far as the IRS is concerned. I’ve also been very active in both buying and selling domain names, as well as promoting VinsDomains, using various outlets! VinsDomains is also on Twitter and has developed a pretty good following. VinsDomains is also on Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest and I encourage you to follow me in all these places. I recently published another article as a writer for HybridDomainer you may find interesting, entitled An Interesting Lead Generation Tactic. I hope you enjoy it. Since I’m providing an update here, I might as well mention that I published another dozen plus articles that you can find over there, which I wrote over the last year as well, as well as at VinsDomains Blog.

I have dabbled in some of the new gTLDs and you can see the names that I have invested in so far here. While I won’t buy too many of these new gTLDs, I also won’t sit by and miss the boat this time. Babies born today will not be brought up in a dot com world and extensions to the right of the dot WILL be the next way of the internet. I have already had three different offers for my new gTLD domain names, so perhaps I made some right decisions here.

I got another advertiser today for one of my developed websites, with a three month commitment. Residual income is really a good thing and this is just another reminder of what a great decision I made when I embarked in this part time business! I’ll be developing an affiliate website in the coming weeks associated with Halloween Costumes and I’m pretty excited about that (more to come)! I have over two dozen names in auction this month, all with bids, so I think it will be a record breaking quarter for me again, making it three in a row! In addition, I am proud to announce that I have become a mentor for a Domaining MBA class being offer by Morgan Linton.

I keep getting e-mails and phone calls from other domainers seeking advice, so I guess I have turned a big corner. I’m actually am working on another big domaining project that I cannot disclose at this time. I can say that this may solidify me as a player in this industry and I’m very excited about how things are progressing. I am anticipating providing an announcement this spring, with roll out in early summer. The announcement may be accompanied with a billboard!

On both a personal and a domaining note, I acutally launched a new website this week on one of my new GTLD domain names…Dads.tattoo I’ll let you check it out and look forward to hearing what you think about it! I appreciate you looking!

Follow the Leader

Follow The Leader

Follow the Leader – We’ve all heard that phrase since we were little kids…but when and how often have you answered that call? When we were little, most of us were happy to follow the leader so long as everybody else was following along too. You wanted to be accepted and therefore you went with the crowd and got along well, because you didn’t want to be left out. That is, unless you were one of the leaders. In that case, you were either leading the group or were angry because you were not being allowed to be the leader. As we grow-up and gain confidence, we all develop a personality and some independence, but at the end of the day, we are still either a follower or a leader.

Follow the Leader

In any group of people, there will always be those that lead and those that follow. A select few will take the responsibility to figure things out, while others will wait for direction on what to do next. The awesome thing is, both the leaders and the followers are as important as each other. If a leader has no followers, he cannot lead and is therefore not a leader. Without a leader and nobody to follow, very little gets accomplished, except out of necessity.

Another phrase that is often heard is that leaders are born, not made. Based on experience, this could not be further from the truth. Most people have the potential to become good leaders, but leadership takes lots of work, patience and more importantly risk/guts. It is certainly less risky to be a follower, isn’t it? We’ll revisit that in a bit. Like most learned skills, being a leader takes a lot of time, repetitive training, and lots of trial by error. Leaders generally have a sense of purpose, better know as goals. A good leader breaks down a goal into manageable steps and provides direction to those they lead to climb them and reach the goal or mission.

Follow the Leader Follow the Leader | Follow the Leader| Follow the Leader | Follow the Leader | Follow the Leader

True leadership is not based on name, position or rank. It is based on action, results and effectiveness. Some of the best companies strive to develop and create as many leaders as possible. W.L. Gore & Associates, makers of Gore Tex and other products, utilize the practice of natural leadership, “leadership by followship”, just like when we were kids! They don’t appoint people as leaders…they let the true leaders surface to the top. People naturally gravitate to those they respect, want to work with and more importantly, want to follow. There are no limiting job descriptions or job titles, and very few rules and regulations to slow you down. If a person comes up with a new idea, he or she puts a team together of people who have the desire and knowledge to make it work. Talking from experience, this really is the best way to go. These basic principles of the leader embracing the followers and being an equal to the followers, always add up to success and bring me to my next point.

The importance of the followers cannot be stressed enough. Without the followers, little to nothing gets done. Followers are the wheels that hit the pavement and drive towards the direction set by the leaders. The followers are the glue in any operation and can never be underestimated. Followers are very happy to be lead, so long as there is a sense of trust, stability, hope and compassion. In a leadership role, people skills are even more important than technical skills, even in an engineering company. Remember, leadership is about the future and moving things forward. The best leaders gain followers out of respect and their ability to get people to work toward a personalized goal or vision set by the leader. A real good leader helps people become better than they are. A good leader attracts, keeps and motivates its followers.

I recently came across this video posted in a domaining blog and it prompted me to write this article. I have had the pleasure of being a leader in the environmental consulting industry for the last 20 years and know for a fact that the only reason I was successful was because of my followers. The good thing is that I knew it then and let them all know it too along the way.

This is for all of you followers! For those of you who really know me, the dancer in this video may spark some memories. Enjoy!

Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett Rhode Island

Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett

Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett wasn’t nearly as devastating as it was in New York and New Jersey, although here along the edges of Sandy, her power was certainly felt. Let me start out by saying that my thoughts and prayers are with those who have suffered loss and continue to recover from this life altering event. I wish I could do more. In any event, living just outside of the mandatory evacuation zone, my family and I decided to stay around and ride out

Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett

When I was camping with my father as a kid in the late fall, before a predicted storm arrived the next evening, I recall something he thought me and I’ve always found to be true. If it is a clear night and the moon is out the evening prior to a storm arriving, you will see a ring around the moon. He told me that the size of the ring or distance away from the moon, will give an indication on how big the storm will be. We had a fun Halloween party on Saturday night and as I pointed out to many people that evening, there was the most spectacular ring around the moon that night, which was by far the largest ring I have ever seen in my lifetime. It was an incredible sight and a clear sign that a very mighty storm was on the way.

Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett Rhode Island

On the morning of Monday, October 29, 2011, my kids and I took a walk down to the seawall to see how angry the seas were. We found conditions to be very similar to that of Hurricane Irene during 2011, with lots of howling winds, crazy waves and foam flying around like it was snow. We got to watch Stephanie Gosk doing her broadcast on the Today show, which we had watched an hour earlier. At that time, waves were just beginning to against the seawall, creating a lot of flying water and foam. There were also a lot of spectators, catching a glimpse of mighty Atlantic as the storm made it approach.

Something we did last year during Hurricane Irene, was to walk under the archway of the historic Narragansett Towers, located adjacent to the Coast Guard House, which acts as a giant wind tunnel during these storms. As you walk through, the winds are howling so much, that you can virtually stand at an angle with the wind supporting you up. Around the corner at this time, there were actually some children playing in the foam along the seawall, an area that would soon be pelted with rocks the size of baseballs and footballs.

After the tour, we decided to return home and along the way observed numerous tree limbs already down, a clear sign of things to come. When we got home safely, we made some final preparations, fueling the generator, running power cords, replacing mantles on lanterns and getting dinner ready for later cooking. Sure enough, within two hours of doing this, the power went down and night time quickly approached. Having lived in Rhode Island for many years, hurricane preparedness is something you learn early on and some longer term preparations paid off big. Two big things you should get in the off season: 1) a generator and 2) a dual fuel stove fueled by propane. These things allowed us to get our refrigerator up and running and allowed us to cook with both stove-top and gas grill, which beats Sterno any day!

Even though I took a lot of storm pictures that day, the next picture has to be my favorite. Despite the 50-75 mile an hour gusts blowing around most of the day and trees and large limbs falling and flying around everywhere, the trusty United States Postal Service kept up its moto and delivered the mail with a big smile and pictures of the storm’s wrath to show what had crossed her path. Truly loyal and dedicated! She and they get a lot appreciation from me, especially being a philatelist.

Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett

Anyway, after checking out my first fallen tree limb, although it probably wasn’t the smartest thing to do, I decided to take another walk to the seawall once my family was secure and ready for the evening. My wife couldn’t resist coming along. We were smart and cautious in our travels and luckily had no issues, but boy what a ride. By that time, gusts from Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett Rhode Island were topping out at 90 mph. It was very hard to walk and the wind had no problem pushing around my 200+ lb frame. The sound of trees cracking were abundant along the way and the amount of trees already down and the lack of anybody in sight, was a scary sight.

Once we arrived down at the seawall, we really couldn’t believe our eyes. High tide was still two hours away, and yet Ocean Road was living up to its name, with the Ocean relentlessly crashing over the walls and completely flooding the streets and nearby parking lots, condos and well known field gazebo. Water consistently flowing under the arch of the Towers at that time was at least 2 feet deep in places, with a current that couldn’t be crossed, as waves constantly hammered and eventually penetrated the Coast Guard House and flooded Ocean Road. The heavy flow included lots of debris and the mighty sea had no problem tossing large rocks and stones over the wall like they were pebbles. I’ve included some photos here and will be posting some other photos and some insane videos very soon, so be sure to come back! Although I must say, having watched them a few times, while they do convey a sense of magnitude of Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett Rhode Island, in reality it was even crazier, especially since my wife and I were the only two nuts out there, making this probably something you have’t seen yet.

After shooting these, we were happy to get home and dry off, as we were pretty wet, despite the gear. We proceeded to have some dinner and play some cards by candle light (actually lantern light). Loosing power is no big deal if you’re prepared, although being without television, we had no idea what had happened to New Jersey and New York for several days, which was the most frustrating thing. After a restless sleep and a 3:00 AM generator refuel, it was time to wake up and assess the damage, which was apparent in every yard in the neighborhood. Luckily for us and our neighbors, nobody was hurt and everything could be cleaned-up over some time. There were some crazy sights as we went about, a couple of which I’ve posted here.

Again, while Hurricane Sandy in Narragansett Rhode Island was nothing like it was in New Jersey or New York, I wanted to post this blog to show just how much of a punch this storm packed, as we were only on the edges of this storm. I really appreciate you taking the time to check this out and would love to hear from you!

Man’s Best Friend

Man’s Best Friend

Man’s Best Friend

This is a hard one to write, but necessary for some healing, in at least my mind. I apologize for not posting lately, but it has been a couple of tough weeks. Anyway, you hear the phrase man’s best friend when you are very young, whether you’ve had a dog or not. However, unless you’ve ever had a dog, you really never get to know how really true it is.

Growing up, I recall having a couple of friends grieving for pets that had past away and I could never really understand it. I’m not a mean person, but always thought to myself, wow, its only dog or a cat. How can that person be so upset about its passing? Well, now I know. Believe it or not, it wasn’t until I was 38 that I got my first and only dog, Lexie. My two kids were about 8 and 10 years old when we got her from a shelter in Tennessee, through an on-line website. I’ll never forget the first day we brought her home and introduced here to the kids. It was truly awesome to see their expressions and joy. That little puppy really got a lot of attention during those first couple of weeks and for five more years to come. She really was perfect for the kids, my wife and for me. Like most family dogs, they do become part of the family.

As you may have guessed, our little Lexie passed away two weekends ago, after getting out of the house, when I left a basement bulkhead open while moving an office. She was a curious dog and always sought an opportunity to get outside without a leash and chase a squirrel, which was her daily exercise, albeit on a runner in the backyard. Anyway, it wasn’t too long after I opened that bulkhead that we had a knock at the door by a police officer, who indicated that a passerby saw the dog laying in the road and called them. Lexie was gone when they came upon her and oddly enough, there was no evidence of any injuries whatsoever. When we first got here, we were told that she did have a heart murmur and would likely grow up to be a mellow dog. Well, she was pretty active and liked to play a lot, but certainly slept the majority of the day and night. I like to think that her ticker just gave out, as opposed to the thought that someone hit her and just took off. Either way, it doesn’t appear as though she suffered at all, which I suppose is a blessing.

Words cannot describe the emotions that ran through the entire family in the front yard that day. It was quite sad time. During the whole thing, while hugging my son and my daughter, I recalled a thought that I had earlier that day, when I had realized that I hadn’t hugged my kids in quite a long time and I had wished that I could get a hug from my kids before the day was over. Wow. If I had known how those hugs would come about that day, I may saved the thought for another time. Although, the moment did bring us very close that day, but I digress and will save this specific topic for another future post. It was a Sunday, so our options were somewhat limited. After talking about it, we decided to bury her in the yard and get a small headstone, so that we could visit her when we wanted and know that she’d always be in our sight and our thoughts.

Lexie brought a lot of love to our home and received an abundance of the same. You don’t really realize how much they become a part of your everyday life and routines, until they are gone, like most precious things in life we take for granted. I recall saying to my wife and kids that day in between the tears that while it wasn’t a great time for a teaching moment, they all needed to realize how precious life is and how fast it can end without notice. Therefore, live your life each and every day, each and every moment, like it could be your last. Don’t sweat the little things. Life is too short. Smile, enjoy life and being alive – all of the time.

My house is very quite now. Lexie was wherever we were, anytime we were home. When we left and came back home, she was ALWAYS at the door. When we were in the kitchen or dining room, she was ALWAYS under us, hoping for a crumb or treat of anything we had. When we were lounging on the couch or laying in bed, she was very close, begging for and providing overwhelming affection. Her clanging noisy dog tag, her little cries, which served as our alarm clock every morning and her laying on her back just hoping you would scratch her belly, are all so deeply missed.

Looking back at my thoughts when I was kid about my friends who had lost pets, I know realize how stupid and naive I was. I’m a grown man and the loss of that dog had me blubbering like a little baby. I feel I could now be an actor, as I could make myself tear up anytime I wanted, just by focusing on the whole thing for a bit of time. No offense to my wife or my good friends out there, but I also now know what “man’s best friend” really means. Pet dogs are always forgiving and they don’t hold grudges. While they need food, water, shelter and care, they take nothing from you. They just love you and hopefully you love them back. I know we did and we’ll never forget her! I’m sure that once some healing has taken place, we’ll rescue another. It was the best thing we ever did! If you are interested in doing the same, check out the State by State listing of the great majority of all animal shelters and rescues in the USA that I have put together here at www.pussysqueeze.com, which I’ll also write about in a future post here, since it was an idea that stemmed from my first pet. Thanks for reading!

About At Vin’s – A Personal Blog

Personal Blog

AtVins.com is a personal blog that I have decided to create after long contemplation. Many of my friends and family have encouraged me to write a book over the years, as I have been fortunate enough to have had a lot of interesting experiences and learn a lot of things, mostly in part to surrounding myself with interesting and knowledgable people (which is another post all together). Anyway, despite everybody doing it, in order to stay with the times, I decided that writing a blog may be a better idea. As I let life change and adapt while time rolls along, as it sees fit, it seems to make better sense to share it as it’s happening. When when it becomes boring, I can periodically reach back and pull up plenty of stories, tales and anecdotes that will surely entertain and hopefully even educate somebody somewhere at sometime reading my personal blog.

personal blog – Me Yesterday

personal blog – Me Today

If you’ve read this much of my personal blog, then it’s probably time for you to learn a little about who I am. Here is a third person perspective:

Vincent L. Jacques is a Professional Engineer in the Environmental Engineering Field, an entrepreneur, business owner, writer, photographer, angler, gardener, wine connoisseur, investor, philatelist, domainer, web-site developer, collector, diver, leader, husband and dad. Vincent has started and sold several different businesses over the years such as Kenyon Environmental Inc., New England Geotech, Alternative Technologies, Kinetic Capital Management and AvoidLines, and has had presence on the internet as early as 1993, when domain names were actually free. Boy, I missed the boat there, although that’s another great story I’ll tell in a future post. I don’t do well with that third party perspective stuff, but I like telling stories. Visit my personal blog often…You’ll be glad you did!

I currently serve as the New England Regional Manager for a large national environmental firm, which occupies approximately 60 hours of my time in any given week. As there are actually 168 hours in any given week, that leaves my plenty of time to do all of the other stuff I do, including this blog. As you’ll learn, I’m big fan of many artists and all kinds of music. One of my favorite songs is from Warren Zevon, “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead”. Life is very short folks and you really are only here for a very small amount of time in the grand scheme of things. Therefore, why are sitting here reading this? Get up, get out and Live! Just kidding. Poke around my personal blog first, then get up and go! Just kidding again.

Besides my personal blog, my latest business launches include FOAMPIX and Vin’s Domains. Both are new and while both are still evolving, they have each already had some great success.

Personal Blog | My Personel Blog | Vin’s Personal Blog | ATVins Personal Blog | Vin Jacques Personal Blog |

Capturing beautiful images and making them available for home decorating is what FOAMPIX® is all about. FOAMPIX® are quality, light weight, easy-to-mount, original wall decor photographs, that are GREAT to look at. FOAMPIX® wall art make great gifts and simply make home decorating easier! Each original FOAMPIX® picture is personally titled and signed. You can visit this site and also learn how to take digital photography.

VinsDomains.com has a wide variety of creative domain names for sale that are perfect for a many different types of businesses, organizations and people. Whether you are taking your business online, starting a new business, launching a new product or starting a new personal blog, we can help.

Instead of playing X-box at night after work, I decided to spend some time on-line in the right places. I was able to learn how to develop my own websites very soon I was using what I had learned and started developing and monetizing some domain names. While I won’t retire anytime soon, I have developed a residual income, which is always a nice thing. Keep in mind, that all of these were created very recently with domain names I bought before I knew what I was doing and are all still being worked-on. Nonetheless, some interesting websites currently managed by Vins Domain’s include the following:

Mixed Drinks Weekly

Mixed Drinks Weekly Now as this site just launched, we hope you will bookmark us and check back often to see the various mixed drinks that you can experiment with on a weekly basis. Our goal is to publish a new article every week featuring a group of mixed drinks or a specific mixed drinks recipe that you can make and help yourself unwind, responsibly of course! A mixed drink is defined as a beverage in which two or more ingredients are mixed, with some containing liquor, creating alcoholic beverages, while others are non-alcoholic.
Interestingly enough, a cocktail is defined as a mixed drink that is typically made with a distilled beverage (i.e. vodka, gin, whiskey, tequila and/or rum) that is mixed with other ingredients. Now, as you may be aware, you can have the same drink in two different places and the drink can actually be quite different. This is because individual bar tenders typically add their own twist to a particular mixed drinks recipe, which causes variations from bartender to bartender and region to region.
There are so many different cocktails in the world and typically contain one or more types of liqueur, juices, fruits, sauces, milk, cream, honey, spices and various other flavorings. As such, it is unlikely that we will ever run out of mixed drinks recipes to share with you all.

Flickin

Flickin This is one cool website that took a long time to create. This is the internet’s best place to waste time! It includes hundreds of LOL pictures, drawings and other interesting things to occupy your time. Check it out and share it!

Pussy Squeeze

PussySqueeze – A website devote to the love of cats, pussycats that is.

As you browse our site, you will also find interesting links to recommended products from reputable and reliable pussycat loving companies, Being the cat lover that you are, I’m hoping you will assist us in making this the most awesome pussycat website on the internet! Send your pictures now and help us go viral by sharing!

Trout Weekly

Trout Weekly Trout Weekly is new community for anglers who enjoy trout. Trout Weekly has been created for those who have an interest in trout fishing.

Trout Weekly will strive to post a fresh article every week! Our goal is to provide you with the latest news, proven fishing products and information from experienced trout anglers, so that we all can catch more fish (especially trout).

Underweight

Underweight.info A website devoted to educating the masses about being underweight. Hate being lean and thin? I can understand how you would. Everyone thinks you’re unhealthy, it can really affect your self image. Not only that, there are various health problems as a result of being underweight. Underweight is a fairly generic term, which can mean different things to different people, but there can be no denying the fact that being underweight is not a healthy weight range to be at, and something should be done about it.

One Direction

One Direction Love Created this one for my daughter, but it is getting popular. If you haven’t yet heard of the boy band sweeping the world, you obviously do not have a 10-13 year old daughter. Just kidding. In any event, one Direction is quite popular, with 3,350,000 [exact] global monthly searches!!!

Page Rank

PageRankImprovement – Search engines love constancy and that is THE feature they seek in domain names. They believe that a website only becomes trustworthy if it has been around for a long time. Google’s little bots analyze each individual page related to a domain name or website. The quality that ranks the highest is the exact age of the web “page” being evaluated. On the other hand, the age of the domain name is equally important. So, seriously think about purchasing an older domain name if you’re going to begin a new project. Even more seriously, think about rebuilding the old pages that existed long ago. You can get a lot more information on how to rank highly on popular search engines by checking out this site!

Okay, I’ve many more websites, buy that’s not what’s this personal blog is about. This personal blog is supposed to be about me. Now that you’ve read all of this and have explored some of my websites, you may have a little taste of what I’m all about. Not really. As can be seen by the pages I’ve created, this personal blog will be mostly about my hobbies, interests, lessons learned and of course close encounters. Would you believe I own a naughty corkscrew collection, baseball card collection, stamp collection and post card collection? Did you know I’m in a wine club, Vino Rosso, meeting at least once per month since 1997? Did you know I’ got to see exactly 150 Grateful Dead concerts back in the day, and I still have the tickets for the next six nights they never got to play? I’m sure you didn’t know I’m a certified PADI scuba diver or that I made a quick $10,000+ last year on Ebay selling “stuff”? Better yet, how about the fact that I’m currently working on a children’s educational app that will ultimately be my very best success story so far? Anyway, lots to say, pass along and share so I better end this one and begin another. I really hope you enjoy this blog and I really do appreciate you stopping by my personal blog, AtVins.
