How can a website and/or blog benefit your business?

Engage with WordPress. It’s fun!

It's my weekly blog about WordPress, technology and life. Mostly WordPress.

A real mid-week mess!

By Dave Bell | June 26, 2013

The transition to  smaller computer is not going smoothly at all. Digital snakebite by a whole quiver of cobras 🙂 Although everything Google and the support forums say what I am doing will/should work, it is not working at all. I suspect Windows 8 as the culprit, but Windows 7 (the one we know I…

The desktop is dead! Or is it?

By Dave Bell | June 22, 2013

I hope not, because I have one to sell 🙂 Why am I selling? Because it takes up to much space. I am hoping someone who does not care about such things happens to need the pure power this beast has to offer. It will be replaced by a computer that is over ten times…

Who owns your domain name?

By Dave Bell | June 14, 2013

No one actually owns their domain name. They are all “rented”, for lack of a better term. But since they can be rented for an unlimited time so we will use, for simplicity’s sake, the word “own”. If you registered the name yourself, you “own” it. If you had CapeWP.com register it for you, you…

Is your website mobile friendly?

By Dave Bell | June 8, 2013

  Does it need to be? Chances are, if you have a local business that relies on customers visiting your store, whether it be an art gallery or a canoe lesson business, the answer is a resounding yes! Because guess what? People are not searching for you on their desktop computer. They are using their…

Can CapeWP.com take down eBay?

By Dave Bell | May 31, 2013

I have been eBay’s biggest fan since the beginning. Even bought a hat with their logo. I decided to clear out some stuff from the closet (brand new cat litter scoopers) with hopes of raising some cash and possibly gaining some pet food customers. (I operate www.catmandave.com and www.veryhappycats.com among other websites) As I was…

The antithesis to all that is digital is…

By Dave Bell | May 22, 2013

for certain, Mr. Dan McCullough. I could always use some balance in my life so… I will be spending this Friday evening here and invite you all to join me. See details after this paragraph. Dan is a writer’s writer. And at the same time a storyteller in the classic traditional sense. The kind of…

Is the Internet reading my mind?

By Dave Bell | May 21, 2013

Short answer. Yes. And it has been for a long time. But it is getting quite good at it these days. I only buy one type of shirt. So when I saw a 25% off coupon for that shirt on Twitter, I went to that website and bought one. Which I had been meaning to…

Email is… Business!

By Dave Bell | May 15, 2013

Sure, we all email friends and family and that is fine. But where email really shines is business. Think sales contacts, inter-office memos, team work and file sharing, not to mention PDF invoices and receipts for all things purchased online. Email gets the job done every day, while Twitter and you-know-who get all the media…

Be… The Outlaw!

By Dave Bell | May 8, 2013

The Outlaw is fierce and fearless. When the day’s work is done, he lights a fire, feeds his horse, eats his dinner and chooses where to put his sleeping bag for the night. No 9 to 5 boxed in feeling here. Lately it seems Facebook has been getting a little bit to big for its…

Learning by Podcast…

By Dave Bell | May 1, 2013

  My definition of a podcast is a video (or sometimes audio) presentation of something I am interested in (passionate about) presented by someone who has a level of expertise and passion in that field. The Internet is not just for shopping and Facebook. I believe the best part of the Internet is the learning…

Yes, Constant Contact is back!

By Dave Bell | April 22, 2013

As a web professional, I need to be up on the latest stuff. I need to know what works and what does not. And I need to manage my time and expertise so as to not spread either too thin. The move to MailChimp email service a few months ago was prompted by the fact…

If you own a restaurant…

By Dave Bell | April 18, 2013

or you have a friend that does, this Blog Post is for you! You will want to forward it to your friend so they can click on the new ad at the right of this post. Restaurant owners’ prayers have been answered. Just when I thought that WordPress could not be any more impressive, these…
