ConciergeWP is No Worry WordPress Security & Backup

ConciergeWP is my trusted WordPress security and backup resource and I recommend it to anyone that has a WordPress website. WordPress is great because it is an open source based website software platform that is constantly developed and improved. Plus, it really works well with many aspects of the social media world. I like to say they go together like peanut butter and jelly or fish ‘n’ chips. So, with that said, anything that is constantly refined and developed needs to be updated and backed up on a regular basis. Not to mention...

CSS Help for WordPress Websites

Helping clients with social media often leads me to WordPress. My believe is that social media and websites go together like peanut butter and jelly. A business needs to have both working together to maximize online exposure. This is where WordPress comes into the situation. When developing a digital strategy it is important to have a working website that can be easily edited to add or adjust content on the website. WordPress enables this because it is a content management system (CMS). The other perk to WordPress is that is has plugins that...

Motorsport Brands Embrace Social Media to Engage Racing Fans

I’m a motorsport fanatic! And, I love seeing racing brands using social media so much!! Social media enables all elements of racing and fans to come together. Now, for the first time on any scale, brands/teams/drivers/crew/sponsors/venues/etc. can all easily contact one another and interact around the motorsport event(s). This rang so true for me during the month of April. I am in Long Beach, California, and this town fully embraces racing in varied forms on its streets. Starting just after Valentine’s Day, the City of Long Beach...

How to Live Tweet An Event

Live tweeting is a big part of covering an event and to getting maximum exposure on the Internet. In order to be successful, a plan needs to be in place so the event activities don’t become overwhelming.

InMotion Hosting is My Go-To Web Host

I mentioned having a website hacked a few months ago and how much Desktop Server helped me get everything alive again. Well, I want to give a big shout out to InMotion Hosting also.   InMotion Hosting To The Rescue!   InMotion Hosting came to the rescue after my former web hosting company denied me access to the hosting dashboard AND refused to help with fixing the hacking issue. I realize that web development is not the responsibility of a web host, but a little help (at least point me in the right direction) is appreciated and goes a long...

DesktopServer Saved My Hacked Website

A few months ago I had a major WordPress website catastrophe. The shared hosting plan that I was using was compromised and the web host (Network Solutions) decided that ALL the websites associated with the account needed to be suspended. That meant that none of the 10+ websites using the shared hosting account functioned. Essentially, they went away and NS made it my full responsibility to get things fixed before they would allow ANY of the sites to be visible on the Web again. With those words of encouragement from NS, I set off to get...
