Not that you should do this painfully easy hack often, but … why do things come up so high in Google searches if they’re just going to ask you to subscribe?
Here’s the situation: You’re Googling something, and the top article seems spot-on. So, you click it and it’s some news site or something that loads the page, but then a “subscribe” popover comes up preventing you from reading the piece. Invariably, it’s for little things, too, like you just wanted to read a quote or something.
And, look, I get it. Everyone’s got to make a buck. It’s tough…
Focusing on a hypothetical case study involving art museums.
Articles on non-fungible tokens (NFTs, sometimes referred to as “Nifties”) have dominated tech headlines in recent months. What might this mean opportunity-wise for nonprofit and public sector fundraising?
Below, I’ll offer a brief summary of what NFTs are, using artwork as an example (including links to additional reading). Then I’ll jump into a hypothetical NFT-based fundraising scenario involving an art museum. I’m choosing art museums as my subject primarily because they’re prime examples of immense NFT profit potential.
A simple, actionable, measurable SEO plan for web site owners.
I think everyone agrees that 2020 was a strange year for web sites. As a web development agency, Array Web Development saw all sorts of weirdness from the pandemic. Some clients closed up shop; others decided to redo their sites during the “down time” that came along with the changed business environment. I welcomed new clients from out of the blue, and even got ghosted by a long-term client. So yeah, weird!
Some tout them as low-interest rate loans, others as “free money.” So, which is it?
This is a massively dry, boring topic, of course, and unrelated to web development. But, as a digital marketer, I find it interesting, as it’s a fine example of the intersection between advertising technique and ethics.
You see, for the past few weeks, I’ve been seeing ads for PPP loans — especially in my Facebook feed. At first, I ignored them, as I didn’t think they applied to me (as a self-employed individual). …
… with direct links to their career portals!
Let’s face it: Well-known brands look good on resumes. I was thinking lately that it would be useful to gather lists of well-known brands and link out to their career pages. Sure, you could find these on your own. But, for me, a nice well-thought-out list would come in handy. (Besides, as a web developer, it’s interesting to me to compare and contrast UX design on major web sites.)
So, for starters, I threw together a list of some highly well-known, well-respected brands that I’d love to work for as a writer…
Here’s a roadmap for you to downshift into less intense television, freeing you from “Breaking Bad prison.”
⚠️ Note: This article contains a few spoilers regarding the shows Breaking Bad, Ozark, and Good Girls. Also noteworthy is that this article was written on Bryan Cranston’s 65th birthday (3–7–21). Somehow, I found a suitable royalty-free image, above, to go with this!
Well, yes, but you *could* argue that it doesn’t!
I hesitate to share this article, as I’m neither an astronomer nor an astrophysicist, though some have called me a lunatic. But, years ago, curiosity got the best of me and I went in search of some specific information — and found it! So, in the name of Vocal’s “(Un)Common Knowledge” challenge, this is my contribution. (To clarify: I certainly didn’t come up with the following! It’s pretty basic science and well known by those in the field. Yet, most normal people I’ve met definitely don’t know this.)
The question in…
… and now I can never visit Russia.
I always suspected they were watching, as my frequent and fevered Bejeweled Blitz sessions routinely push the expected limits of gem-chasing intensity. Where newbie and casually mainstream players swipe at painfully obvious three-tile matches, aimlessly passing the hours of their simple lives, CIA analysis of my historic (and continuing) gameplay clearly demonstrates an uncanny propensity for setting up powerful three-plus-gem matches, exploding the board into impossibly endless cascades and prompting unparalleled, nonstop deep-voiced adulation from the game’s narrator.
Oh sure, other noteworthy (and even “great”) players exist, as I’ve been told (albeit…
Wearing cat t-shirts and rock & roll t-shirts into executive offices.
On my way to an online meeting this morning, my wife stopped me. She seemed downright concerned and asked, “You’re not really going to wear that cat t-shirt on video, are you?”
I definitely, 100%, was going to wear it, I assured her. “I mean, it’s an internet job, isn’t it? What kind of internet guy would I represent myself as if I didn’t wear a cat t-shirt? That’s the real question.”
Will it be an update or a full-on migration? And, what kind of planning should you be doing now?
At some point in the fairly near-ish future, as of this writing (March 2021), the next major release of Joomla! (Joomla! 4) will come out. If you’ve already got a current Joomla! site, it’s hopefully a Joomla! 3.9.x site, as Joomla! version 3 has been out since September 2012.
It wasn’t long before that when I got into specializing in Joomla-based web development, a choice that’s kept me gainfully employed the whole time. (I’ve told many others: Joomla!’s …
