Engage with WordPress. It’s fun!

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

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…

What is managed WordPress Hosting?

By Dave Bell | April 12, 2013

To begin with, this is the type of web hosting that CapeWP.com provides. It means that as a CapeWP.com client you receive a WordPress website that works. And is updated regularly. And is malware free. Ready for you to dance with. I cannot speak for others, but with CapeWP.com you also are hosted on a…

Welcome to Spring…

By Dave Bell | April 2, 2013

Well, we can always hope that Spring might arrive early here on the Cape. It is a rare occurrence but it has been known to happen. Let this be the exceptional year. I will be back with a regular post next week. Family and fun are the order of this week. I am surviving my…

Einstein’s email methodology…

By Dave Bell | March 29, 2013

It was Einstein who once said, “Fix the problem in the simplest way possible. But no simpler.” He and I think much alike. Being in a business that relies heavily on email (not Twitter, not Facebook and not Pinterest), I, like you, have had to deal with Spam, junk mail, malware emails, phishing emails, and…

As you may have noticed…

By Dave Bell | March 22, 2013

CapeWP.com is a big fan of Twitter. It changes fast and I get that. Roughly every 10-20 seconds there is a new tweet. (My interests are many and diverse; I follow over 330 fellow Tweeters!) Many people think they need to have numerous intelligent things to say and that they need to Tweet these thoughts…

What is a WordPress Theme?

By Dave Bell | March 14, 2013

Not unlike a soap opera, this blog expands on last week’s “episode” in which I addressed both the growing pains and the ultimate usefulness of WordPress themes. So what’s my plan here? To explain what a WordPress Theme actually is. WordPress itself is just a bunch of files that look like typical programming mumbo jumbo.…

WordPress Themes and you…

By Dave Bell | March 8, 2013

WordPress Themes are usually wonderfully fun and productive. But sometimes, even in WordPress, things can go awry. Mostly, WordPress themes have come to a point where they work – and work well – about 99.6% of the time. But that does not mean there cannot be a learning curve and/or a few digital “snake bites”…

What about Email?

By Dave Bell | March 2, 2013

  Here at CapeWP.com, email is still king. Facebook is, well, popular for sure. And Twitter is, well, short and to the point. Both are fun in their own way, but email is still the best way for businesses to communicate – a direct line into any employee’s inbox (or client, or friend, or family,…

What are all these things?

By Dave Bell | February 24, 2013

Mow the lawn. Clean the bathroom. Eat dinner. Watch TV. Play with cat. Go for a drive. Shovel snow. Do email. Vacuum entire house. Gas up the car. Clean windows. (OK, maybe that last one is a stretch.) Well, in case you have not guessed, these are all things I would rather do than log…

What a storm!

By Dave Bell | February 16, 2013

The weather report was pretty much spot on. All was amazingly smooth here at the corporate headquarters of CapeWP.com. At the previous location in Brewster, the story would have been quite different. Gratitude was foremost in my mind the entire time. The readers of this blog had various reports. From no power for 4 days…
