Laptop or Desktop Computer – Which One do you Prefer and Why?

- July 29, 2017

Laptop or desktop computer? I read a lot of responses to a similar question on Quora but I didn’t leave a comment.

There’s more to consider than hardware. What about the operating system? What about the software you absolutely need?

In some cases, the software will dictate the hardware. In other cases, it’s the other way around.  (more…)

Wi-Fi Data with Cable, DSL, or Fiber Internet vs. Cellular Data

- July 28, 2017

Although I’ve had DSL Internet in the Philippines since 2006, I didn’t start using Wi-Fi with any device in the Philippines until mid-2015. I won’t mention the time I spent in the United States in 2013 and 2014.

Before 2015, we (Josie and me) didn’t have any device here that could connect by Wi-Fi. I was using a desktop tower and Josie’s cell phone was the old kind, without that ability.  (more…)

Tablets vs. Everything Else for Viewing Websites and Everyday Use

- July 27, 2017

I enabled Google Analytics on this website a little over a month ago. I wanted to see how tablets compared to desktop computers and cell phones for people viewing this website.

What I discovered over a 30-day period opened my eyes a bit. Based on my findings, targeting cell phone users more than desktop and tablet users is a good idea. I started with my custom WordPress theme on a hunch but perhaps I can do more.  (more…)

Swimsuits in the Philippines – You won’t see Bikinis at most Beaches

- July 27, 2017

Take a look at the picture I’m sharing. You won’t see swimsuits that even remotely look like the one in the picture at most beaches in the Philippines. It’s a bikini, most likely a thong bikini.

I’ve seen one-piece swimsuits at the beaches but not two-piece swimsuits like bikinis. Of course, I haven’t gone to any of the tourist beaches, like on the island of Boracay. Bikinis are not the norm – this isn’t California or Hawaii.  (more…)

Structured Data Markup – It’s Not Easy to Comply with Google

- July 25, 2017

It’s not easy to add structured data markup to a web page or website. That’s probably why a lot of web developers (and webmasters) ignore it. I ignored it while I was working on my custom WordPress theme.

It’s tedious to add any type of code I’m not familiar with and structured data markup is code. There are two preferred formats. Which one Google prefers depends on which of their pages you read.  (more…)

Guest Posts – You Can Now Send Articles for that Purpose

- July 24, 2017

Unlike my offer to help you make money online, you can now send guest posts. I need to grow my website and I can’t do it on my own.

I’ve had a lot of inquiries about writing to make money, but no takers so far. I don’t want to wait for people to make up their minds.  (more…)

Testing My Custom WordPress Theme – Please Don’t Laugh

- July 23, 2017

It’s only been three days since I announced I was working on a custom WordPress theme. I actually started working on it a couple of days before that.

I neglected a lot of things I usually do during my daily routines. It would never get done if I didn’t. It’s done, but I’m sure there’s a bunch of things I need to fix. I caught errors after publishing this article.  (more…)

A Custom WordPress Theme that can’t be Approved

- July 20, 2017

The main reason I’m still using the Hueman WordPress theme is because I don’t like customizing WordPress themes. After years, I still haven’t removed all the useless crud from the main CSS file.

A couple of days ago, I decided to start working on a custom WordPress theme. I would have to do a lot more to it to get it approved by the WordPress community. I don’t care to go that far with it.  (more…)

RSS Feeds with Mozilla Thunderbird and SpecificFeeds

- July 19, 2017

I’ve had my website syndicated with Google’s FeedBurner service for the last year. I always check my RSS feeds by subscribing to them using Mozilla Thunderbird. Until today.

I can’t subscribe to RSS feeds with Thunderbird if they’re on SpecificFeeds but that’s okay. [See my update below.] SpecificFeeds doubles as a feed reader and feed syndicator. They call them “followed feeds” and “offered feeds”.

I stopped using FeedBurner because it hasn’t been updated in SEVEN YEARS and it’s no longer officially supported by Google. It’s just there.  (more…)

Free Web Hosting Providers – Be Careful what you Wish for

- July 18, 2017

When I was researching static website hosting providers, I wasn’t researching free web hosting providers. Many of them fell into the same category with premium upgrade offerings. Static providers don’t offer things like database or PHP support at the basic level. Some of the free providers do.

Free blog hosting providers are mostly in the same category as the other free web hosting providers. The only real difference in most of them is the word “blog” instead of “web” or “website”. One or two providers (that I can’t remember) are blog only. That means you can’t create pages that don’t fit within the chronology.  (more…)
