When I build your site, you'll be assigned a real human. (Me!) #NoDaddy
Don't let fear of the unknown scare you away from WordPress. The whole system was designed to put incredible power in the hands of people with little technical skill. Here is how easy it is to "WordPress".

This new thing that’s going around Facebook right now called “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” should have one more thing added to it. The 26th thing should be

“Are you willing to allow scammers and thieves access to your banking and other personal online information?”

And if you completed the first 25, your answer should be “YES!”
The latest cool thing happening on Facebook could also be the doorstep to your next identity theft. Let's try to be smarter, eh?

I recently came across two posts that challenged what most people think they want in a web design. One was the false importance of putting content above the fold, the other suggested that sliders are killing your home page. What do you think?
Two posts, somewhat in contrast, somewhat similar, both thought provoking. Is the concept of "Above The Fold" and Sliders really DEAD in website design?

I don't care what the analytics say, common sense sometimes has to trump that. I know that if a page doesn't give me what I want right away, I usually bounce. I don't scroll, I don't "look for it". I just leave.

How do you refer someone? Make the most of your referrals by putting in just a little extra effort. It can make a massive difference not only in connecting the two but in how that person approaches their new client.
