Branding Yourself

I’m going to buy this book. And if you are creating a brand for a client, or yourself, I suggest you read Crushit by Gary Vaynerchuk:

SEO What?

I’ve stopped thinking, “SEO, SEO, SEO!” every time I create content for my sites. Simply put, I just write for my niche, make it informative, funny, and relevant. That takes a load off!

Who Should Host Me?

Best website hosting reviews:

I know that before I started reselling web site hosting, I did not know where to find a good place that had done the research for me on a selection. I have found that the best website hosting reviews will contain reviews of the top 10 hosting companies around. The reviews have to be independent from a hosting outfit, with the ratings based on on web surfer’s feedback, hosting tools testing, and the overall usage of their services.

Upperhost.com is the place readers! Here is their mission statement:

Our Mission is to Test, Inform and Inform the potential web hosting consumers and businesses. We accept no advertisements or donations from any web hosting company.

For example, they have a review of lunarpages hosting, which contains all the greatest information you need in order to make a quality decision on their services.

So all in all, I rate them at the top of the review niche for hosting.

I have been using Ubuntu (Linux dist.) exclusively for about what…8 months now…and I have really grown to love it. I love the OpenSource movement, and what it stands for. Not only that, but all I need I can run on Ubuntu fairly easily.

I do run (via VirtualBox) Windows XP – but that’s just for web dev. stuff. My day-to-day is strickly Linux!

Shopping for web standards in design will kill you! I mean, if you look for a web designer that specializes in standards compliant designs, you have to turn over rocks to find them!

If you have been following the latest news in accessibility and retail, then you’ve heard of the lawsuit between the retail giant Target and blind users of the internet. Let’s say you wanted to to buy something online from Target. You could not, and more importantly, you would be discriminated against. All because Targets website is inaccessibly designed. But because of the lawsuit, the Target¬† that’s going to be changed. Target has been ordered by the courts to pay $6 million on the class action lawsuit against them.

Here’s a quote from the ruling:

“Furthermore, the settlement requires Target to implement internal guidelines to make its site more accessible to the blind by Feb. 28, 2009, with assistance from the NFB. The retailer and the NFB have agreed to a three-year relationship during which the advocacy group will keep testing the site to make sure it is accessible to the blind who use technologies such as screen-reading software. NFB said it will certify the site through its own certification program once the improvements are completed.”

Happy 4th!
