Did you ever have one of those days where you swear you are living a Twilight Zone episode? Well today is definitely one of those days for me, lots of cosmic energy floating around me today for some reason or another. It must be my grandmother who passed away when I was in High School. She probably knows how depressed I’ve been lately and is trying to cheer me up for the holidays, and now on top of that I’m a sick little pup as well. … Continued

How Data Travels Over The Internet Part 1

Leave a comment

What Is The Internet I wasn’t sure I was going to write this post, but the more I kept thinking about this question the more important I felt it was to answer. I’m a firm believer in knowing as much as you can about a particular something, and at least have a general knowledge of how things work especially when it comes to your own business. So after weighing the pros and cons for a few days I finally decided that I would write about it. … Continued

Robots For My Birthday

Leave a comment

Today is my Birthday! Yes somehow I made it through another year, and I wanted to celebrate it with you by talking about robots.txt files. No Wait, you didn’t actually think I was sitting here typing this for you this morning did you? YECK No, I’m taking the day off. What’s the point of being your own boss if you can’t ditch work once in awhile? Who am I going to get in trouble with? Actually some really close friends flew into town yesterday to celebrate … Continued

Do You Adjust Your Pricing

Leave a comment

This is the exact position I find myself in right now. Little background for you – I’m President & CEO of my own internet marketing and software development company. My sister works for me, and probably like most of you right now we have a virtual team of people who … Continued

Are You Prepared For a Server Crash

Leave a comment

I got next to NO sleep last night (a lot on my mind), a whopping total of about 4 hours.So imagine my surprise and frustration when I got up to find that both of my servers had crashed and were currently down, no email no websites no sales, Nada – Zip – Zilch. Exactly what I need first thing this morning. I know this comes with the online territory and shit happens, but it still makes me cringe when I see how much money I am … Continued

Where Are All My Comments

Leave a comment

This one will be short. A Huge SHOUT OUT and my ever grateful thanks to Noelle who tracked me down on Skype (no small task), to bring an issue to my attention that I was not even aware of. Makes me wonder just what my testing and administrative team has been doing these past few months. It seems that as of two updates ago to the ‘all in one wp security & firewall’ plugin that a conflict started with the updated version of WordPress and was … Continued

Algorithms What are They?

Leave a comment

Shhhh, did you hear that? It’s officially the first day of fall. It arrived just a minute ago at 4:21 very AM here on the east coast and this October Libra baby is up (though NOT awake yet), to celebrate it with you. Warning, I’m going to get techie for this one. Actually my birthday is right around the corner and I thought I would celebrate a little early by honoring the computer geek in me. I wonder what Kate Winslet & Josie Bissett are doing … Continued
