Why Don’t I Use WWSGD Plugin Anymore? This Is Why…

maxresdefault-5WHAT IS THE WWSGD PLUGIN?

I know when I first started out blogging the “What Would Seth Godin Do” Plugin or WWSGD Plugin was a must-have on everyone’s list of top 10 plugins. I have been using it now for the past 3 months, or since I started blogging, but have since found one that I think totally out does WWSGD!

This is so much more intuitive, highly customizable and just looks clean and stands out at the same time without being obtrusive. What plugin am I talking about… The WP Greet BoxPlugin.

WHAT IS THE WP GREET BOX PLUGIN?

How to Stick to Your Ultimate Goal

In my high school years, I didn’t care so much, dropped out, but later earned my GED  after I took a great online (and free!) course. That’s when I developed a clear picture of my dream job. I graduated from college, the very next week I was sending out my resume. I was desperate for a job. Any job. Just give me a job!

Less than a month I got one. Was it my dream job? No. Did it pay the bills?  Yes, somewhat. My friends got jobs. Did they like their jobs? Somewhat, kind of. But it was okay because we were all on the ‘right track’…

During this time, there were lots of happy hours, parties, events, shopping days, gatherings, dinners. Did I want to go to all these events? A few I really did, but the majority …

What is CSS and why it matters

programming-in-css-448x283pxCSS stands for Cascading Style Sheet. Not so illuminating as you had hoped? Well, let’s take a look if we break the definition down to the important elements:

“Style sheets have actually been around longer than the internet.”
So this is about Style Sheet – CSS. This is useful as a starting point, since we have known style sheets already at the time when the web still had to be created.

Back in the old and golden days of the world of business, style sheets were quite literally sheets (or more often, documents) that were describing, in excruciating detail, how all documents created by, a or used for, a specific company should look.

A style sheet dictated exactly the typefaces that need to be used in press releases, what specific colors must be used in the masthead, …

7 Tactics to Increase Your Influance

2016-04-05-1459888488-1105248-5easystepstostartgettingyourblogginghouseinorderSo you’ve started your brand new blog huh?

The excitement may not last long. After a few weeks or months, perhaps you’ve begun to experience burnout. Perhaps you like the feeling to be able to post your opinion on the Web, but writing becomes a chore rather than something fun to do on a regular basis.

Readership may not grow at the rate that you think the blog is worth the effort. Sounds familiar? I guess it is to many of us. It happens to some of my blogs too, in many times.

As with any other venture, it takes effort to succeed. While a blog turns web publishing into a very easy and convenient task, actually writing great content and building readerships — and later relationships — are the real challenges.

Below are my own 7 strategies to find, …

“…and the best is, you can do it in one short week.”

Some of the things they talk about hold true. A blog is a great publishing platform, a great way to get closer and being part of your customers and prospects.

The thing is, success in blogging is not something to achieve overnight or even in one month.
I have seen a few bloggers who could do it in six …

Do You Know your readers?

whats-the-best-blogging-platformYou look at your blog almost every day. You write the articles, you picked/made the design, but how does the blog look and read to your visitors? People with different knowledge and different computers are accessing your web page, can anyone come to your website and understand the blog right away?

CAN PEOPLE UNDERSTAND YOUR WRITING?

A few months ago, I wrote a lesson plan/tutorial for an art class on using Photoshop. I had written lessons in that subject before, but this time I was faced with a far less tech savvy crowd. One person in particular, the teacher had a particularly hard time following my directions.

The things I took for granted, like what the menu bar is, was sudden pushed into the lime light because the teacher couldn’t figure out how to go to File >> New Document.…
