No idea what happened to this week…

By Dave Bell | November 18, 2016

  I certainly intended to build a new website for myself. And next thing I knew, it is Friday, which is the last night I can do a blog post. Because whether I like it or not, MailChimp sends out the post Saturday morning. And here is an actionable tip for you: Probably the very…

This is the best time of year on Cape Cod…

By Dave Bell | November 11, 2016

Perfect weather. No crowds, and less noise pollution than usual (although this depends on many factors). If it was not for the entirely unnecessary time change, this season would be even more perfect. I am one of those people who are deeply affected by “the just an hour” time change. The constant back and forth,…

Yup, looking like Fall…

And there is a whole lot going on in the tech arena. Google has a new phone out, the Pixel. I am going to check it out and see what I think. Those with eCommerce websites are gearing up for the biggest season of the year. Can your web hosting handle the traffic? If you…

It is that time of year…

By Dave Bell | October 28, 2016

  when major tech companies make big announcements about their newest products. So they can sell into the upcoming Holiday Season. In other words, my favorite time of year. There were some big surprises this week. And not from Apple. Pretty much everyone on the planet knew that Apple was announcing a new version of…

I was hesitant about attending…

this year’s WordCamp US. It is the biggest get together of WordPress lovers of the entire year. Around 2000 more or less people. At $40, for thousands of dollars worth of learning, millions of dollars in networking, and at least a trillion dollars worth of SWAG, it may be the best deal for anything on…

So how is your Fall going?

By Dave Bell | October 14, 2016

Engaging and enjoyable I trust. I am very grateful for the lack of humidity. And the crispy walking weather. I even took a 12 hour road trip to Chatham. The one in New York. Nothing but rolling hills, open space and trees, along with farms. Many of them. A nice change. I planned on having…

Happy Labor Day to my faithful readers!

Happy Labor Day to you!

  Rock on. Dave

And the Summer of 2016 is a wrap…

By Dave Bell | August 26, 2016

1The good weather is not over. Far from it. We have some of the best weather on planet earth coming right up. But the overloaded traffic and long lines are all but over. Back to school, back to work. I’ll be at Ollie’s for lunch tomorrow. For the very last time 🙁 Ollie’s is sold…

CapeLearnWP.com is being re-purposed…

By Dave Bell | August 19, 2016

into a site that provides links to various WordPress professionals that have one thing in common. They offer help to beginner WordPress users. I have met most in person or on Twitter and have done business with most of them. WP101.com is up first. Owned and operated by Shawn Hesketh, I advise anyone starting out…

It is a jungle out there.

By Dave Bell | August 12, 2016

And for once, I am not speaking of the humidity. Although that too 🙂 I am speaking of the wide range of choices for accepting any type of payments online. It seems almost endless. PayPal, Stripe, WooCommerce, Braintree, Square, Shopify or eBay? When to choose which. And why. It seems that being involved in the…

Like I mentioned, it is all about ecommerce…

By Dave Bell | August 4, 2016

and this week I dove deep into the initial setup of an eCommerce website. In this case, a WordPress and WooCommerce website. More specifically, this exact website you are on. My own. Decades of experience have taught me that it is always better to experiment on my own website, verses a client’s website. Yup, that…

Ecommerce, WooCommerce, WordPress, Square oh my!

By Dave Bell | July 29, 2016

Every now and then a game changer plugin for WordPress arrives on the scene. The WooCommerce plugin is certainly an example of that. Think of WooCommerce as the ecommerce arm of WordPress. Doing business online. That’s what it is all about. And since after a short period of time WooCommerce is used by 37% of…
