Got a New Place Near Wrigley Field

Posted on 16 July 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

There is no view of the ball park from where I live. If I look out my window I can see down to where the kids wait for home runs on Addison. My place is diagonal from that intersection and it is close to perfect for me right now. It has a security system from ADT in Chicago, but I have to figure out what it costs to get the monitoring service. Obviously it is not that useful without it, but the monthly cost of it has to make sense for me. I am really on a budget and unless the price is pretty low I will do without it. I think the system must be pretty old at any rate. It has none of the really fancy features that ADT advertises on their TV commercials. There are no video cameras or anything like that.

Explaining High Speed Internet to My Older Parents

Posted on 1 December 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I got online on my phone to see if there was high speed Internet in my area. Well, not my area now, but the area where I used to live. Mom and dad still live in the same house in the same rural area. I’m in a suburb of a major city about 50 miles away from them. I have not checked on Internet access upgrades to that rural area in years. I figured they now had it, but all I remember is not having it as a teenager not that many years ago.

I checked to see if there was high speed Internet in my area that I moved to. It was a prerequisite of me choosing this place. Read the rest of this entry…

Just Got Up to Indiana

Posted on 14 October 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I spent the morning up at the campus of Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne. They were pretty much ready to hire me on the spot and that was a surprise to me. I expected that it was going to be a couple of weeks before I heard back, but apparently this is exigent circumstances and they are moving a lot faster than you would expect from this sort of institution. Usually things move at a glacial pace when you deal with these sorts of things. I had to start looking at the local internet providers and they actually found me a place to stay already. The guy knew that I would have difficulty just picking up and moving up there, so he arranged it for me to move in to this vacant studio apartment that belonged to a friend of his. It is far from ideal in many ways, but the price is superb and the location is almost perfect.

I can roll out of bed here, shower, grab something to eat and walk to my office in less than 15 minutes. This is literally the closest place that there is to the office that there is. At least it is about as close as it can be. The guy who owns it is a computer scientist and sort of a wild guy. He is about ten years older than I am and he has this really long pony tail of jet black hair. It goes half of the way down his back. I would guess that the guy probably does not remember the last time that he went to get his hair cut. He is a nice enough guy and quite easy to get along with. Apparently he does not like a long commute though and likes to be this close to his job.

Started Working on the Blog

Posted on 14 July 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

It is not something that I begged for, but I have sort of become the company blogger. It started out rather innocently, because the boss wanted to know if there was some sort of WordPress support services that he could call to help him out with this. At that point it was not really a blog, just an idea that he was working on. In fact the blog is not really there for it’s own purpose. It is there to help promote the stuff that is on the web page. If you are like me and you do not understand how it works, then stuff is confusing.

Customers Prefer Video Production to Written Content

Posted on 6 June 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

If you really want what you are selling to take off on the Internet, have a video made. No, I am not talking about something you slap together and post on a free video site. I am talking about a professional video. Those types of things used to be unaffordable except by the biggest companies. But now small business owners and entrepreneurs can have access to professional video production company experts and their tools. A pro corporate video can be used in anything from training to advertising. I now use them for both.

My first one was for my first product I offered for sale on the Internet. I borrowed money to have it made. It paid for itself in no time after i put it on the front page of my website. It is the first thing potential customers see.

Choosing a Web Host for Your Website

Posted on 25 March 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

Deciding on one of the top 10 web hosting companies can be an overwhelming task if you’re not familiar with web hosting. I recently started a Blog with a focus on everything ‘Internet pop culture’ in hopes that I could drive some traffic to my site by capitalizing on sites like Reddit and other news aggregate sites. It’s quite easy to drive traffic to your site from these websites but if you plan on seeing a great deal of traffic, you’ll want a web host that is going to be able to handle the traffic load. Reddit is well known for sending so much traffic to a website that it crashes under the load! Thus, it’s always wise to ensure that your site is prepared to handle a heavy load. If you plan on making any sort of profit from your website you could lose out on a fair bit of profit should you website crash under heavy load.

It all depends on what you want out of your website.

Best Web Designers Located in Mumbai

Posted on 13 February 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I am going to need a new website for my Internet-based company, and it is a pretty dire concern. My current website is really outdated, and it has occurred to me, that it being so outdated might lead to a decrease in sales over time. I do not want that to happen, and I want to get a more modern looking website for the business. I would like to find a company that does web design in mumbai that can build the website that I need.

I have some ideas for what I want in terms of a new website, but at the same time, I am going to need a lot of input. I must admit that I do not know much about websites, and that is definitely a disadvantage for me, since my entire company is based off of the Internet. Indeed, the quality of my website is of vital importance, since it is the only interaction my customers really have with me.

In the past, I did not pay much attention to the need for a top quality website. However, some things have taken place that have made me change my mind, and now I regard it as a vital aspect of my business. I am disappointed that I have not done more to ensure that my website is better in the past. There are reasons why I did not think it was such a big deal, but in the end, it is kind of inexcusable. I am hoping that my business will be a lot better off once it has a new website, and I really believe that will end up being the case. I need to make sure to hire one of the best web designers around, so that I can succeed at getting a great website.

A Black Hat Method to Marketing

Posted on 12 February 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

Quality ControlMarketing on the Internet can be a very subtle method – the ‘value’ of content has different types of oberservational metrics. Consider Instragram. Instragram is an incredibly popular photo based social service that is utilized by both individuals and corporations to push their content out on the web by engaging with the social base. Each photo can be ‘liked’ – the number of likes that a photo has, the more exposure it can gain within a social circle. Many businesses go as far as to buy instagram likes in order to increase the validity of their content. While this is a smart marketing method that can help a company to gain the exposure that they are looking for it can also be a double edged sword.

The HostGator Coupon Got Me to Switch, and the Service Kept Me As a Customer

Posted on 8 February 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

Hostgator Coupon Codes December 2013 | Best Discount Coupons | Best ...I had been displeased with the shared hosting of our old provider. I have a business website, but there is not enough daily traffic to justify the expense of a dedicated server hosting plan. I do small engine repair, and the website is basically a list of services, some prices, our hours and where we are located along with our phone number. People that are local to us find us by our website information. It works kind of like the old phone book used to. I found a hostgator coupon online, and decided I would give them a try for hosting our website.

The old provider we used had a lot of issues with really long lag times on their shared hosting plans. A shared plan is when a bunch of websites are on one computer.

Looking at Some Backup Options

Posted on 7 January 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

Of course you can not have a web page that can not be relied upon, you have to have a system that is redundant and does not fail under any circumstances. I learned my lesson the hard way from the early experiences I had. We rely upon sales from the web, so we have to have it all backed up. After awhile I realized that you could use cheap offshore servers and the best thing is to have things arranged so that they are always awake somewhere. Of course Amazon and those sort of of sites have 24 hour tech support and they have locations all around the world, they have a site for just about every country that matters obviously. At least there is an amazon for any country with a significant culture of consumerism.

We just have one site and obviously our business is mostly in the United States and Canada, although we have done business with the offshore countries in this hemisphere and in Mexico and one of those Central American countries as well. However the site needs to be up and running all day and all night, without fail and even on holidays. We back it all up on servers based in Australia, in fact some little place on the West Coast of Australia which is almost exactly on the opposite side of the world from the United States East Coast. It would be obvious to them if we were not online, and their sole purpose is to make certain that we do not ever go offline. So far they have not had anything to do, but it is because the backup has always been there whenever we had to maintain the site here. We give them notice of course and they make sure we are up.

Moving into My New Place

Posted on 17 December 2013 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I just got the lease signed on the house I am renting. A friend of mine showed it to me and it belongs to a little church about six or seven blocks from where I am working right now. In fact there is a little trail through the woods that makes it about one and three quarter miles walking distance to the front door of my office building. One of the neighborhood kids showed me after I saw him cutting through the woods behind the house. I just got started looking for deals on internet bundles and that sort of thing. I need a few things, like a couch for instance. Read the rest of this entry…

What to Major in College?

Posted on 26 April 2013 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

My son is a sophomore at an Ivy League college and when he came home for spring break last month we had a really nice conversation about the fact that he hasn’t been able to pick a major. It is very hard for him to choose a major as he likes a lot of different things, but he can’t register for his junior year until he chooses a major, even as a web design mumbai agent he will need to pick a major like computer science if he wants to work on computers for the rest of his life. He said that he may want to major in graphic design so that he can arrange marketing campaigns and even do things like design a web page for someone if they wanted to have those services.

His college career center hasn’t done much for him as they are telling him to meet with an advisor to help him pick a major so he can get his future started. He really wants to figure out what he wants to do so he can register and I don’t blame him. I told him that if he doesn’t choose a major soon that all of the good classes are going to be taken and filled up with students who already had a head start on their registrations. I know that it’s hard for a twenty year old to decide what he would like to do with the rest of his life but the pressure is on him to choose. I hope he doesn’t choose what to do in a haste and then regrets his decision but I do want him to consider what he wants to do and how he would like to spend the rest of his life. Choosing a career is very important.

Good Deals on Web Design in Manchester

Posted on 20 April 2013 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I am trying to get a website built for the company that I own in the near future, because I feel that is very important to have a website as a business in order to be competitive in today’s world. I really hope that I will be able to find a web design company that is willing to build a website for me for a reasonable price, and I have been trying to look around for such companies that are located in the city of Manchester. Right now, I am looking at kudoswebdesign.co.uk as a possible solution for my web design needs, but I will need to do some more research before I am able to come to a conclusion on this matter.

I want to find out more info about this company, and I also would like to get a quote as to how much money I am going to have to spend in order to have this website built for my company. I do not want an exact estimate or anything like that, but rather, I am just looking for a ball park figure. Additionally, I noticed while looking at their website, that they also offer graphic design services, and that is something that I am going to have to look into as well.

I need to have a logo designed for the company and website as well. I would really like to have a good logo that will help attract customers, and also one that makes the company appear to be reputable. Another thing is that I am going to need to look at is their portfolio, so that I can view the work that they have done for other websites. I would like to find an example of work they have done for a company similar to the one I own.

Using Small Businesses to Grow

Posted on 11 March 2013 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I wanted to find a person to do some web design uk for me. I did not want to hire one of those large companies that would just kind of throw together my site and be done with it. I had hoped to give my business to someone who was up and coming and would give my project the amount of time and energy that it deserves.

Each time I have something that I have to hire subcontractors for, I do my best to try to find a small business that is just starting out or is struggling to make ends meet. As a small business owner myself, I know how important it is to gain connections and to use companies that are not run by the people that have invested into the company.

I have gotten a lot of the business that I currently have through other small businesses in the area. I do not think that I would have made it this far if it was not for the small business group that I am a member of. We have given each other a lot of work over the past several months that we would not have otherwise gotten.

I was happy to find an independent web designer that I hired to build the site for my business. I was quite impressed with the work that was done and how the finished product looked and performed. I could not have gotten a job done like that if I had hired a big company to do it. You can tell that this designer took the time to incorporate all of the details that I had requested be put into the site. I know that the next time I need work done on my website that I will be contacting him again.
