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

And the Internet grows up…

By Dave Bell | April 28, 2017

You heard it here first. In the next version of WordPress, version 4.8, Internet Explorer versions eight nine and ten are no longer supported. This is huge for the folks who have had to spend countless extra hours making their clients website design work properly on this browser. Two questions pop up. 1. Why would…

My cat Happy

T G I F

By Dave Bell | April 22, 2017

What a week! Major fire at the house next to mine. No one hurt, dog rescued, Happy and I are safe (we bugged out). Moral: Smoking is bad for you and your house. Best to quit that insane habit. The rest of my week was taken up by working on websites. I was so focused…

Wild turkeys

And it’s Easter. Well, close enough 🙂

By Dave Bell | April 14, 2017

Happy Easter to you. It has been a week for sure. Mostly deep in the land of the web and technology for me. No one ever said it would be easy 🙂 I wish all my readers and their friends and families a good Easter weekend. Me, well, I do not like ham and I…

Windows 95 launch party

What a long strange trip it’s been…

By Dave Bell | April 6, 2017

If you look closely, you can see me in the photo. Not really, but I could have been. Because that fateful night when Windows 95 was launched, I drove to Egghead Software in Weymouth (where I was friends with my former manager) from Truro Cape Cod. I was like a kid in the candy shop!…

Here are two tech/Internet tips you can use.

By Dave Bell | March 31, 2017

Sometimes the deep intuition comes to me and sometimes not. This time, not. So I am keeping it simple. Chances are if you buy a new computer at retail, it has a bunch of what is called “crapware” on it. You know, all the Dropbox, AOL, eBay, Amazon etc. icons all over your brand new…

Which WordPress for you

It just so happened…

By Dave Bell | March 21, 2017

That last week, about a few hours after my blog post was sent, I stumbled across an article on the same topic. Basically, What are the two types of WordPress and which is for you. Here is a link to that article. It is the best I have seen on the subject. As a refresher,…

WordPress websites

So you want to start a blog…

By Dave Bell | March 17, 2017

I recommend not calling me. And here’s why. There is no need to. Because, after the initial call/meeting for learning what you need, I will charge for my time and expertise. Why not go free? Well, I got a couple of reason’s, not the least of which is “There is no such thing as a…

WordPress is not perfect. But it sure comes close.

By Dave Bell | March 10, 2017

Here is why. Over the past few weeks I had the opportunity to teach a client or two some things about how to work with WordPress. I have, over the years, taught a few folks about the magic of WordPress. But it is not something I do all that often. Usually, I design, build, host…

Lately I have had the distinct pleasure of…

By Dave Bell | February 24, 2017

working with some clients and businesses long enough that the original owners sell the business to the next person. One company I am sure you faithful readers know is Carved Home Signs. After working with the previous (original) owner and creator back around the year 2003 or so to develop the initial website, I hosted…

Use Google, but only if…

By Dave Bell | February 17, 2017

you want to find what you are looking for. If you want to find everything else except for what you are looking for, use Bing. And Yahoo? Yeah, when was the last time anyone ever used that? And so there is a reason that Google is number one. And it is a very simple reason.…

What a game!

By Dave Bell | February 7, 2017

If I did not see it happening, I never would have believed it. Well played Patriots! OK, back to business. If you are setting up a business, do not ever make the mistake of printing any marketing materials with any email address that doesn’t not include your website domain name. That way YOU are in…

It’s Super Sunday. Go Pats!

Enjoy your day. Enjoy the Super Bowl. Go Pats! Back to regular blog schedule next week. Dave
