Day 3 of my new motorcycle blog.
I'm on a roll.
Seat height of the KLR is pretty tall right out of the box. Add a bunch of weight and a wider Corbin saddle and it becomes a little 'taller'.   Which is why Tom lowered his a bit (in the rear shock...

Just completed the remodel of RebeccaBurnsRealty.com - here's what we did and how it all happened.
Rebecca already had a site, what she needed was to make changes to the design, add calls to action and create new forms. We created a list and then made the site look and work the way she wanted it to.

Mise en place means everything in it’s place. You see it all the time on cooking shows. Here's how I use it in my business. Do you use it in yours?
When it came to get 'cooking' on their website I found myself scrambling all over my digital pantry looking for the missing ingredients. Not any more. Now, everything will be in it's place!

I don't LastPass (or Roboform) but if you do, you've heard about the security breech right? Here's what you need to change and maybe a better way to do it moving forward.
You either use a service like LastPass or you use the same password for all your logins. Either way you might want to think about changing your password to something more secure.

For years I was stuck with a horrible Facebook Title on my Page. Someone asked if I could change there's and that's when this happened...
Sharon asked, and I was just about to say, "Nope. you're screwed". Luckily I looked first. Here's how you can change your Facebook Page Title to something better.

One of the best plugins for video may be on your site - it created a wonderful page and you really could "set it and forget it". You might want to go check that now, it's probably broken. Here's why and how to fix it.
TubePress was a fabulous plugin! Are you now getting an error on your page where TubePress should be working? Here's why and how to fix it. (there's a free version and a not so free version)

I had a few people ask, "What the heck is CSS" so I thought it would be perfect topic for this "Question of the Week" Episode. Most every website today is made up of a combination of code (in WP that's .php) some scripts, some html, and CSS to create what you see. But what is CSS and how does it work?

So I recorded the video, and as I was riding home I realized that I completely got one of +Jay Valento's questions wrong. (I totally suck!) Luckily, it's also a blog post so I fixed it. Phew!
Every Week I answer your questions. Sometimes I get it wrong. This week I tackle "What size font should I use on my blog posts?" and "How should I redirect a subdirectory I have on my website?"

Well, there is a 5 year warranty on the carbon frame, and the wheels carry a 10 year (carbon fiber too) so there's that. My original Tallboy (the yellow one) did develop a crack and was replaced with the new blue one very quickly.

I hadn't thought about the other stuff but that certainly explains why "Candy" knocks on my door every Friday. When I ask, Megan always says it was just somebody who had the wrong address.  Oh well. ;)
