Does Blogging Work For Business?

Although I find blogging to be a popular subject for many people to talk about, there are still a lot of businesses trying to figure out not only if there’s any kind of return on investment in doing it, as well as whether they have the time or the inclination to do it.

Do You Need A Contact Page?

Over all my years of creating websites, visiting websites, doing a bit of SEO and generally checking people out, one of the things I tend to believe is useless is a contact page. I touched upon it years ago when I wrote a post titled SEO & Common Business Sense, I said that I probably needed to write a post on my belief on contact pages since I stated it all the time.

Let’s start with blogs just to get them out of the way. If you look at the left side of my blog, you see individual pages I’ve created. The most important page over there is my About page. If anyone’s really interested in reaching out to me for any reason that doesn’t pertain to a particular blog post, all the information needed is in there.

Should You Have A Website?

There are a lot of people and businesses that have websites (or webpages) around the world. There are a lot more of each who don’t have websites but probably should. When it comes to being or trying to market a business, a general question that has to be asked is whether it’s viable for the owners of that business to have a website or not.

Can You Make Livable Money Online?

Over the years on this blog I’ve talked about how I’ve made money here and there. I’ve tried a lot of things, some successful but most of them not. Because of this, I want to address the topic of making money online because it’s a major industry, lots of people talk about it, but you need to understand how insecure it can be.

12 Things You Need To Address On Your Website

I used to create websites for people until more people started buying templates. Since I’m not really a designer and I don’t do fancy, I gave up that line of work some years ago. I still take care of my own sites though, and I wrote 3 articles about working through the problems of increasing my mobile speed.

blog and website maintenance

tiring but necessary

This time around I’m updating an article I wrote in 2015 talking about websites and what NOT to have on them. Because I still see a lot of websites that do things most of us would find irritating I thought it was time to revisit the topic of what website owners need to look at when it comes to the user experience.
