Every site like this has a Reviews section right? Honestly, I don’t know the answer to that. I know that I enjoy reviewing different things as I get to use the technology. I want to review content management systems like Drupal, Wordpress and others. I want to review plugins and addon’s along with reviewing some new hardware of computer I built. I even film my PC builds when possible but to date the lighting has always been terrible to use the footage. I swear I am working on that though.

I also reserve the review section for how-to’s because a lot of the times I will learn something that I think others might benefit from me writing about it. I could be completely wrong, but I am always interested in reviewing something you might want me to take a look at. Feel free to email me and let me know.

2017 Office Computer Build: Xeon E5 2650 V3 ES 10-Core

I am always looking for upgrades when it comes to my computer and I figured that sharing my current setup can help others looking to build something fun or functional. I manage a lot of websites, work on designs for all different applications, and I want to focus in on recording audio and video this year more than anything else. Knowing this upfront drove me towards Intel for this build. I have a couple AMD FX series rigs from the

Earning Google Adsense Money From Any Niche

Adsense can be used on any type of blog except for ones that have gambling, adult content, or anything illegal. It's a straightforward ad revenue stream that Google has banked everything on. I think we can all agree that they have been highly successful in this area for the past 17'ish years. They outline all of their terms here in case you want something to read before bed.Before we break things down we should probably talk about ad blockers. They

My 30-Day Review Of SSDNodes Web Hosting

It's been a bit over a month now with my payment for $240/year to SSDNodes on April 14, 2017. My last host, which was Wiredtree, cost almost $750/yr so I was able to cut two-thirds of my annual costs and got 8 times the server. I knew 2017 was going to be a budget year for me. Trimming the fat where I can wasn't really much of a choice as I move into starting my own business and living on a

R.I.P. Wiredtree, No To Liquid Web, But Hello SSDNodes

It's "host choosing time" and it only took 4 months for me to make a decision on the future home of my websites, apps, and whatever else I want to host. My hosting company sold out to a bigger competitor at the end of 2016. Hosting companies come and go and this is just the technology "circle of life". Technology moves fast and as startups come, they go just as quickly which is why we get a new Apple or

Where To Learn Web Development and Professional Tools

There is no shortage in finding websites that are filled with pointers on becoming a full stack developer. Maybe you don't want to be a full stack dev? No problem, you can learn HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL, MongoDB, and countless other technologies instead. I can't list all of the places to learn these languages, tools, and classes, but I can help point you in the right direction on where to start if you have admirations to become more capable.YouTube is

Clash of Autoptimize, Cache Enabler & WP Rocket WordPress Plugins

Update May 29, 2017: I am deciding to rescind my advocation for WP-Rocket. They haven't done anything wrong and they made a difference in the past. After switching from Wiredtree (Now Liquid Web) to SSD Nodes, there is almost no difference in the sites speed with or without WP-Rocket. Even though my license doesn't expire until December 2017 I plan to move to another solution that is free and lightweight. No bad story to give, no bad blood, or anything

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

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.

Self-Hosted Email Software: Sendy Review

I have been desperately trying to find a solution to building an email list that didn't cost a fortune to send an email to my readers. I have tried using MailChimp which is fine, but expensive if you grow out of the free tier which is always the goal. I have not used any of the other big named ones so there is always a measure that I might miss.Note: I am not being paid, asked, or compensated by Sendy.

Great WordPress Themes That Are Worth Buying

I have seen this question a lot across different social media communities for podcasting and the answer is usually the same. Frankly, the days of "themed" Wordpress themes are on their way out. This is because more theme developers are putting more flexibility into their products than ever before. Generally, this might not exist for a free theme, but I don't use free themes any more. I will not be covering free themes in this because I am not actively using

Postmatic Basic & Subscription for WordPress Comments!

It's time to run through the plugin that changed the conversation...literally. This one was saved for last because it was the most important of all of the other offerings from Postmatic. Postmatic is the single most important thing that has changed the entire way we see comments from just a quick "hit & run" to how Google engineered Google+ and Gmail for fast and easy communication. This is the only plugin that I know allows you to subscribe to the

I will not alter the original review to reduce any confusion.Upfront, this plugin is my favorite out of all the plugins I have ever bought or used.

Authors Can Leverage YouTube & Win With Patreon

If there is one thing that people want in life is money. We equate money to a worry-free existence and many paths have been well traveled to get to that point in life. All creators want is to stay at home and work online so they can express their gift for writing, painting, blogging, photography and the rest of the talents that one could use to make money. In the beginning of the internet, massive amounts of people flocked to

Elevated Comments FTW

Have you struggled to find a way to sort better comments from the ones that are just, meh? Postmatic has yet another plugin called Elevated Comments and I truly think this one is special. I wanted to take a bit of time to see if I can do it some justice now that I have used it for well over a month. It's normal for me to use something for a while before passing judgement in a blog post. My
