From May-September 2014 I traveled 4,200 miles from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast by bicycle. We rode through 12 states, and across 5 mountain ranges. This slideshow is an FAQ presentation I created to share my experience with some of my co-workers.

Enjoy! And if you have questions: Ask away!

Server talk: How to configure a custom 404 error page

So you've designed your custom 404 error page... now what? How do you get that UX masterpiece out of Photoshop and into the Internet?

It's all about the .htaccess file, baby.  

Did I lose you? Come back! You can do this!  

Getting your custom 404 error page configured is a pretty straightforward process; think of it like baking a cake, and think of this article like a recipe. Just put all the ingredients together as outlined in the recipe and you're on your way to 404 configuration success!

Read: How to Configure a Custom 404 Error Page (Apache Server Edition) >> http://bit.ly/1BQyjwh 

(I wrote this article! Ask me in the comments below if you have any questions.)

#TechnicalSEO   #Apacheserver   #404errorpages  
Getting a custom 404 error page up and running on the Apache Server is a four-part process. In this post we cover parts three and four of this process; determining what type of server you're using and amending your .htaccess file to tell your Apache server to deliver a custom 404 error page.

It is my pleasure Chelsea.
 I've just had a look through your cycle tour photos, seems like it was a wonderful trip. Love the shower cap idea, very fetching as well.

#Storytelling = smart marketing. 

This minute-long video falls right in line with this #Contentmarketing curation I put together earlier this year: "How 3 Big Brands Use Storytelling to Make Everyday Products Exciting" >>  http://www.bruceclay.com/blog/how-to-use-storytelling-for-content-marketing/ 

I love this type of marketing. Does it sell products? Well, I'm talking (and thinking) about it right now... so it sure doesn't hurt.  


(A sorry in advance to YouTubers who are reading this comment thinking I am shamelessly plugging my own content. While I AM shamelessly plugging my own content, it's for a post on my Google+ wall -- for my fellow interested marketers -- not for YouTube.) :)

A thousand times yes!! 

"The employees are committed to something more than a paycheck, and the customers have found more than a vendor, they have connected with a 'tribe'."

Company culture is infinitely more important to me than a paycheck. I want to be part of a tribe that works together to create brilliance; to make an impact. 
What does your company culture look like? Here's what it could look like if you do it right. Brad shares some challenging thoughts.

I like this: +Google is assisting Hollywood to raise girls' perception of computer science-related careers. Two Disney-ABC television shows, "Miles from Tomorrowland" and "The Fosters," feature young female characters who are science-minded. Google acts as consultant, advising the show creators on computer scientist personalities and even helping write code sequences that would work well in the TV-show format.

Google is advising Hollywood studios and showrunners who are eager to promote female characters who have a passion for computer science

Yes. 
 
Every year Japan hosts the world's biggest (and most competitive) snowball fighting tournament, and we went. 
When you think of snowball fighting, you think of a few children outside having fun. Yukigassen, on the other hand, is a sport that's like a combination of dodgeball and capture the flag.

Yes!!! An excellent pedicure experience. The standard pedicure is excellent; nice massage; gentle handling; great ambiance. I'm tipping 25% and I'll definitely come back again.

The best dentist!! I went to Mission dental for years and never knew what insufficient dental care I was getting until I started coming to Camarillo Dental. They THOROUGHLY clean your teeth every six months and you can tell the staff genuinely cares about your dental health; they're not just trying to get you in and out to collect the insurance money. I've had two teeth crowned by Dr. Yum and I have no complaints. Dr. Yum is personable, thorough and detail-oriented. He does great work and he makes you feel comfortable. He's not in a hurry, either. He's happy to answer questions and do whatever is necessary to make you happy and Informed. I started coming here because it was recommended to me by a coworker, and now I recommend this dentist to everyone.

This was the most disappointing dinner I've ever paid $32 for. I ordered the grilled chicken salad; it arrived looking like two-day old bag lettuce (iceberg) in a half-filled bowl with topping you had to scavenge to find. I also ordered a baked potato -- this was the smallest $4 baked potato I've ever seen!! My table mates ordered veggie burgers. One burger came out cold and both came with about 9 french fries. Everyone at the table left hungry and disappointed. Plus-- I could hear the wait staff fighting with the kitchen staff from my table. That really set the mood.... If you're in this area, go anywhere but here.

I rated this motel 3 stars because it's close to downtown, the man at the front desk was nice and it's really cheap; $60 after tax for two people in a big room with two beds. For someone traveling on a very low budget, this is a plus for me. If you're someone who is squeamish about cleanliness...... You might want to skip this place, though. On the surface it looks pretty ok, but lying on the floor stretching I found myself looking right into two really long toenails (!! Gross !!) and this morning -- after sleeping in the bed for two days -- I looked down and spotted a crusty, caked brown spot on the blanket that I am really really hoping was old melted chocolate. ( it wasn't a stain... It was a caked on brown matter...) I sleep in a lot of pretty gross motels since I'm bike touring on a tight budget, but toenails and brown caked on (please please please chocolate) whatever crud on the blanket is really...... a tad over the line. Ugh. Won't be leaving a tip for my less than conscientious housekeepers...
