New Year, New Website

So, you may have noticed that my website has been revamped. It was not exactly an easy process, but it certainly was not a complete nightmare…although it cost me a bit more than I had intended to spend. However I am very proud of myself and the fact that I was able to do it…

CPanel

Think Twice Before Using CPanel Script Installers

When you open up a web hosting account and get ready to start on your website, one of the first things that you probably log into is CPanel (or its equivalent). I’ve been using CPanel for years, and I still get giddy when I visit it, and I’m setting up a new website. 5 years…

No Facebook Login Here

This marks weekend #2 of working on my Joomla site. One of the things I’m focusing on now is the user registration and login features.

A Painless Fundraiser For Your Non-Profit

As the national president of the Delta Gamma Pi Multicultural Sorority, Inc., I always had my eye on the infamous “bottom line”.

Social Media Monitoring 1: Reppler and Friend or Follow

Way too often, people just stumble into social media…without understanding it, their ultimate goal, or its long-range impact. My BF is sort of a microcosm of this (to me anyway). When we first met, his interest was a little piqued by my ongoing updates and fiddling with Twitter and Google + (he already had a…
