MaAnna I'm really sorry to hear that you've taken so much heat. I admire you greatly and have turned to you for advice more than once. I refer you as well.  I'm happy to read that you're finding your path again, doing the things you enjoy. Life is too short to do otherwise. Things change so fast in tech. Today's darling can be tomorrow's albatross.  I'm often amazed at what you know and understand.

I'm also appalled time and again at the bitterness and backstabbing that flies across the web. You are such a kind, honest human being. I'm saddened that you had to go through this.

Great post!
Have you ever felt like you stepped in dog poop with an online project or vendor? It stinks. It’s messy. And the cleanup isn't a pleasant task. I’ve done that three times in the past few years and it’s taken a toll on me and my business. Two of them you have never heard about, until now. One of them you may have. This is my story and my experience of how my zeal for some vendors and my duty to clients caused me to run right into piles of dog poop...

Being away from home has its advantages. There's lots of time to do things that usually end up on the to-do list, only to be shifted to a future date. One of the things that I yearned to have more ...

Anecdotally speaking, some of my most popular posts show the date, but have turned out to be evergreen content, a term I wasn't familiar with before following you. It's hard to know if they would have more hits or less based on the date. Written in 2012, another blogger recently shared the post, doubling my traffic that day, and last week it was picked up by another site, and quadrupled the views. It was fun to see it all unfold.
Get the facts about whether to display dates, how it affects your SEO, and tips for how to add or remove dates.

Wow, +Alys Milner. Doesn't sound like dates on your posts are hurting you at all! But, there's only one way to find out. Take a snapshot of organic clicks vs. referral clicks, then remove the dates and check those stats again.

While the east coast and mid-west are ready to be rid of winter temps, I'm mourning the winter that never was. #californiadrought

#juvenilefiction #DearOpl

Teachers, this is a great book for your 10 to 14 year old students. Self esteem, body image, loss, finding your voice, nutrition, yoga...it's all here.
My pre-ordered copies of Dear Opl arrived this week. It was great fun opening the box. I finally had my hands on this gem of a book, penned by Shelley Sackier of Peak Perspective. My 15-year-old so...

First off, I'm really sorry to hear that anyone, anywhere, would blame you or hold you responsible for the behavior of a hosting site. It's part of the bigger culture, in my opinion anyway, of blaming someone else whenever something goes wrong. I no longer recommend vendors for my business either. I simply suggest. It's a slippery slope, isn't it.  

I know that I don't give my site the full attention it deserves, nor is my business big enough to ever contemplate some of the other, non-self hosting you refer to above.

I'm so glad you are here, MaAnn and hope your business continues to thrive and grow.  
Hosting is one of the most critical elements of site success. And yet, it’s the one thing site owners tend to neglect researching and paying a little more for good service. Uptime is far from all there is to good hosting. It’s always been difficult to find a host that suits all of my client’s needs, has superior support, and remains rock steady in the service they provide. But now, it’s becoming so difficult, that I’ve decided to stop publicly en...
