Stop to WordPress Pingbacks and Trackbacks Spam - Pingbacks and trackbacks spam is generated by spammers who use automated scripts to send millions of trackbacks to websites all over the world. Just like comment spam, trackback spam is not directed to your site personally.
What these spammers hope to achieve is that they could leave their links on a website where trackbacks are not monitored. Most of these spam links point to illegal activities like selling drugs, running scams, distributing malicious code, etc.

The Best Music to Develop Websites to (What the Science Says)

Coffee is always awesome for getting going in the morning. A good night’s rest will ensure you start your day off on the right foot, too. But what do you do the rest of the day to keep your energy levels up, your creative juices flowing, and your focus on your work?

According to some studies, listening to music while you work can provide a much-needed boost throughout the day. They say it helps improve productivity, cut down on time spent on tasks, and inspire more creativity.

If you’ve been struggling with productivity lately, finding the perfect playlist to accompany you throughout the workday could help. Obviously, cranking out Jay-Z’s latest album probably isn’t the best idea, but there are musical genres that have proven to aid in productivity and the creative process. Let’s take a look at what the science has to say and see if we can find that perfect playlist for you.

"6 Mile Pink (at 6 Mile Bend)"
By +Mark Metternich
My "4 Bends in 4 Days" (5 days with one extra day of post processing training) still has a couple of spots open if anyone here is interested. Just email me at for the free PDF and to be on my email announcement list where I also GIVE AWAY FREE QUALITY VIDEO TUTORIALS!
Back story: after almost 2 years straight of living out of my vehicle (homeless by choice) doing landscape only, I began to seriously tire of the isolation. I became extremely excited when a best friend of mine, Andrew and his wife Laurie called me to tell me that they decided to drive all the way from Washington (NW) to visit and shoot with me in the SW in between my workshops. This spot is absolutely one of my very favorite places on the earth to stand, and photos don't even begin to do it justice. Being 300-500ft down looking across and up at this nearly 1000 foot mountain surrounded by water and raging pink color just does something to a person. Only a handful of times in the last 10 years have I seen this place EXPLODE in glowy pink for either sunrise or sunset, and we woke up to it looking great for that possibility. To take two best friends to a very sacred place and then to be treated to one of the most intense pink sunrises I have ever witnessed at this location was sheer joy for me even if I hadn't taken a single photo. Especially because this was one of the first places they had ever seen or photographed in the entire SW. In many previous years I mostly preferred to shoot alone (some "me" time away to refresh and clear the head). Today it is the opposite. I love to be and photograph with others. And the icing on the cake here was being with loved ones. This specific time with them was very instrumental in helping me see the great value of friends, people, family, relationships and community in my life. Since this time my life has taken on some amazing 360 degree changes that I can not adequately articulate my gratitude for.
