Still recovering from a severe sinus infection. It has been going around where I live in Brevard county, Florida. I got a call last week from a client in Boca Raton. It seems he had a problem with his godaddy account and they pulled his sites. The sites were created in Dreamweaver and were uploaded through filezilla. He said his site was not there or working and could I please fix it for him. I was on a mission. First site had all the file paths askew from his uploading. I stripped the wrong code from the index page and it was fixed. He then had another site and it was hosted on the same domain with deluxe hosting at godaddy which I have just started to learn how it works since I purchased that hosting for one of my clients. That was a little more tricky and I had to place a call to godaddy. I knew it had to be something with the files and the first thing I noticed is that one of his files online in the root folder had spaces. A BIG NO NO! As soon as we renamed that folder it worked. Now there was also flash slideshows that had to be addressed and once again I was on a mission to correct that. All is done. Here are the links.

Social Media No No's

I thought this video on Social Media was interesting. I try to tell clients that if they do not keep up with their social media it hurts them. But do they listen?????

Wordpress or not to Wordpress

I may not agree with this posting on Craigslist but thought it was an interesting point of view.

Web designer/ developer (Palm Bay)
I need a website designer/ Developer immediately to help me with an inrush of new clients. My clients are small buisness, e-commerce and Corporate accounts. This is steady work which can be done remotely after an initial meeting per project until I become comfortable enough to just send you work and design orders.

You MUST be strongly experienced in HTML including HTML 5, CSS 3, PHP and MySQL database development and maintenance. jQuery and JavaScript is also a requirement. Other programming skills are also a plus, especially Java, C++, Cold Fusion and Ruby on Rails. These are not mandatory but a working knowledge is helpful. We work stricktly with Adobe products that are included in the CS6 suite. I will provide the software to the person upon being hired, so experience with Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Photoshop, etc are definately a plus. NO WORDPRESS and NO JOOMLA. We simply do not do these types of sites. We create original, non-template custom websites.

DO NOT respond to this add. DO NOT send me your resume as those will automatically be discarded. Please kindly fill out the form in the link below and in the comments section simply give me links to 3 of YOUR latest completed projects. I can get a pretty good idea of your skills by seeing 3 examples. NO WORDPRESS and NO JOOMLA. Any kid can do that.

I am very busy and need to get someone on board by the start of next week. Once again, I have no problem with designers working from home or their own office as long as deadlines are met. And again, please DO NOT send me a resume. Just fill out the form as stipulated above.

I pay well for quality and experience and this is a long term opportunity for the right people. If I can find two well qualifed people, I will hire both.

Thank you-

Facebook Wants to Be the Internet by Adrienne Erin in Featured

Found this interesting.....

.....But it’s not a new idea, and Facebook has quietly been growing, in more ways than one. In October they passed the monumental 1 billion active users milestone, after the number of users skyrocketed through 2011 and early 2012. For several years now, “facebook”, and variations of the term (“facebook login,” “,” and “”), has been the most-searched query on Google, and Facebook is the most-visited website in the United States as well as several other countries. In addition, just last month Facebook’s mobile population surpassed desktop users.......
.....Graph Search is only the latest in Facebook’s plan to take over the internet. If your business wasn’t on the social platform already, now it’s foolish not to be – your users may not bother going all the way to Google to find you. And Facebook knows it........

And noteworthy also that Google now recognizes facebook for SEO. How many LIKES do you have?
