Adding Ads To Your Website Without Looking Terrible

The reality is that ads are not native to the internet, and those that appear to be, are not honest content. I am referring to native advertisements, advertorials, or other names which are really just paid propaganda. Look, I get that running a website costs money but that's not why the internet was researched and developed. Marketing ruined much of our online experience and after the first check was written we just accepted that ads were normal.I always tell people

Starting A Successful Blog and Building Website Traffic

Building any site can be a very daunting task. Most people don't have the time or desire to learn the basics like HTML, CSS, Javascript, or other programming languages like Python. This is why they turn to services like Squarespace or Wix so they can streamline their message without the learning curve.I personally don't like these "easy builders" because of their inherent limitations. For some, it's just a convenient way to get a website up quickly and not worrying about

Clash of Autoptimize, Cache Enabler & WP Rocket WordPress Plugins

I stumbled upon KeyCDN’s plugin called Cache Enabler a couple weeks ago and decided to disable WP Rocket and give it and Autoptimize a go for a couple weeks and report my findings. I did just that and I couldn’t believe how much of a difference it made being free plugins. Now, Cache Enabler plugin makes static files so it should be expected to display HTML files quickly.I decided to message WP Rocket, in private, telling them about my findings. They

Local SEO & B2B Website Services In Angeles City

If you know and understand SEO then you will see by the title alone that I am tracking a specific phrase for our new transition (moving) here in Angeles City, Philippines. We are still in "hotel mode" but this time gives me something to chew on that I hadn't considered until I needed to search for a hotel. I had planned on only focusing on my 3 websites and not to search out for other opportunities...until now.I had planned on

Goodbye South Korea, Hello Philippines

It's time to say goodbye to 5 years of living in South Korea. This is where I completed the last quarter of my career serving in the Air Force. There was a visit in 1999 and two tours prior which gives me a grand total of 7 years & 6 months if my math is correct. My first trip was when I was a young airman in 1999, then as an non-commissioned officer in 2003-2004 & 2009-2010 and finally as a senior non-commissioned officer in

The State of Podcasting In 2017

What is the state of podcasting? That is a very large question and one that is constantly discussed all over the internet. There are many considerations that go into a true picture of what is to come. Areas like location, genre, levels of production, and what listeners want to hear can be so sensitive to change. My goal is to try to discuss this in several parts and covering where it has been and where we are headed. Of course, this is an opinion

Meet ARMember, the New Plugin For WordPress Membership Sites

I have tried several plugins in order to create a membership site here and all of them had a feature that I wanted missing or the support was absent. Others were too difficult to set up and I moved on after frustration kicked in. There are many plugins, forums, platforms, and everything else that you can use to bring in money to offset costs of servers and other expenses.I haven't tried every single one, but I will absolutely review all the

A Cool & Catchy Name For A Personal Blog

Name your blog before reading anything. Go ahead and do it right now! No, no, no...hold on, let's not do it that way. Some of the readers might be able to come up with the perfect name on the spot. Others will struggle with it for a long time and there is no right time to brainstorm. There is no expected time to come up with the perfect domain that all your readers will want to remember and visit. When

How Do You Promote An App Or Company Without Connections

If you are a new startup in Silicon Valley or working out of your garage and hoping to make it big then you better have a lot of hustle in you.

Google’s Participation In The Podcast Medium

Google has finally followed suit this year, and joined Apple in the podcast directory world. Why not? After all it's even more data collection for their servers. This may even have amazing impacts on shows that didn't have a way to expand and rise on the iTunes platform like the pro's. Perhaps we will see new shows finally catch a break, or maybe it will just be another Android app in the Google Play store. Even though it's been months now, we

Postmatic Deserves a Spotlight & a Full Review

To start things out I need to clear up a couple things that might be confusing upfront. This post is about Postmatic Basic, the free version of their plugin that you can reply by email to comments. They also have Postmatic that is a subscription service that I am not covering in this review because I feel that the majority of people wanting to know more will be Basic users until they bring in the revenue to justify the cost.

Meet My Dad, Guy W. Mulholland

Before we jump into it, I want to say upfront that this is certainly the abbreviated version for the blog. I intend to detail as much information as possible until I can't think of anymore memories to add. I am initially publishing this 3 years after his death on the day. I plan to detail the beginning until the split in a future update. Let's start from my most vivid memories. From the Split at 8 in 1986 I come

Convincing Friends & Family Your Passion Is Greater Than Money

I can answer this with a couple of personal stories that are relatable. Someone asked this a few months back on Quora and I wanted to expand on it more and have some fun going through some of the best times in my life. I am a lucky dude by all accounts, but I am surrounded by people who love structure, money, or have no clue on what they would do with freedom to do what they like. It's mind boggling to me,

Should You Create A Podcast Jingle, Or Just Buy One

Before we jump right into the in's and out's of adding some cool royalty-free music to your intros, I want to point out that there are many ways to edit and improve your episodes. You can start by having good equipment, working on tighter scripts, or even polishing the audio levels in Audacity. This piece of a podcast or even a video makes a difference, but not an overwhelming piece of the puzzle. This topic is geared towards the end process and

How To Build An eCommerce Website For Free

I have been building eCommerce sites for years and it couldn't be any easier for someone who doesn't code (like me). There are many free scripts out there that are open source and we will dive into them shortly. I want to outline everything you need to build a path from start to finish without spending a ton of money. There is a new world in shopping online today and you can be a part of that if you want to build
