Thesis Theme for WordPress

Thesis Theme for WordPress

Among premium WordPress themes, Thesis is one of the best I’ve seen. Thesis looks clean and professional right out of the box.  But what really sets Thesis apart from the others is its focus on my four pillars of good theme design; seo, speed, usability and productivity. SEO I’ve discussed these criteria in a previous […]

Best Free WordPress Themes

Best Free WordPress Themes

The other day I wrote this post about WordPress themes. Today I wanted to mention three themes that appear to meet all the criteria for a quality theme and are free.  All three look great, but the only one I’ve tested in an SEO capacity is the first one.  Each of these themes has been […]

The ABCs of natural niche ascension

The ABCs of natural niche ascension

In every niche there exists a hierarchy of voices competing for the attention of the people that subscribe to that niche. Within that hierarchy there’s a very natural positioning that occurs. Quite often (and not surprisingly) this positioning favors the individuals that have the most seniority in that niche. That seniority and positioning isn’t always […]

Why you don’t ever need FTP again

I sat down to write this post about FTP and figured I would make a video about how to do it. But like any good (lazy) engineer, I went first to see what I could find on youtube.  All the videos sucked.  That’s not because they didn’t show you how to FTP. Instead it’s because […]

Increase the perceived value of your eBook

eBooks have long been a popular and effective way to deliver information to a target market.

Stop trying to win the Feature Race

Stop trying to win the Feature Race

We live in an age where we think that computers can do anything.  In some ways that’s not too far off.  We’ve begun to outsource much of our lives and internal processing power to computers that keep track of where we are, who’s important to us, and even what we should do to stay healthy. […]

The Real Cost of Open Source Software

You get what you pay for! While that’s true, there are some pretty great things that we seem to get for free, especially here in America.  For example, we have a magnificent freeway system that allows me to travel from one state to another, uninterrupted and at very high speeds.  What a marvel!  The best […]
