So Happy Independents Day on Meet the Press this AM, per their information there are more voters calling themselves Independents these days; and yet unless Bernie Sanders gets more awareness then where will this voice of independence get heard?  I remember the movie that had a candidate labeled 'none of the above' and that candidate won, is this the start of something like that, where the 'business as usual folks' will not be doing things as usual?   These are the exciting days we've long waited for.

By Mark Cuban, LinkedIn influencer, featured in Technology group I follow there.
Ah the good old days. Stocks up $25, $50, $100 more in a single day. Day trading was all the rage. Anyone and everyone you talked to had a story about how they had made a ton of money on such and such a stock. In an hour. Stock trading millionaires were being minted by the week, if not sooner.You couldn’t go anywhere without people talking about the stock market. Everyone was in or knew someone who was in. There were hundreds of companies that we...

If it isn't tested, it doesn't work.
Introduction

The first question: What do I do first? (in setting up their new website) The answer might well be this simple: Planning Session All good websites come from a good plan. Sounds redundant, but it's true. If you want to create a good and solid website, you need a good and solid plan. I know it's hard to do, and I know you want to keep poking and playing with this exciting program, but it is time to take a break away from your computer and turn to the old paper and pen. That's right, we're going back in time to when people actually wrote things down. On a piece of notebook paper, or whatever is lying around, describe your site. Take five to twenty minutes to come up with a purpose for your site, or better yet, call it your Mission Statement. Answer the following questions:

  • What am I going to do with this?
  • Who is going to read this?
  • What kinds of information will I be posting?
  • Why am I doing this?
  • Who am I doing this for?
  • How often am I going to be posting and adding information?

Now, compile this information into a paragraph so it looks like this:

This website will be dedicated to X, Y, and Z,

and cover the topics of A, B, and C.

The audience will be __________ ________________ _______.

I will be adding posts every _____________

about ________ _______ ______________.

I am doing this because _____________ _____________ __________________.

Just ask, and I'll be happy to take a look.
