What happens when you paint with CMYK instead of the traditional primary colors?
I live in Jacksonville, Florida. With six military installations in the region, there are a lot of veteran owned businesses (VOB). While working on a small VOB site I needed a VOB web badge. Sadly, there did not seem to be any freely available graphics that weren’t promoting something else. All I wanted was a simple […]
This weekend was the inaugural WordCamp US. I was privileged to not only attend, but to actually be a speaker. What an amazing experience! It was two days of non-stop talks about development, design, business, and the impact using WordPress has made in variety of ways. I met lots of internet friends in real life for the first […]
This has been an incredible year! Since May I have spoken at WordCamp Miami, WordCamp Tampa, and WordCamp Orlando. I am part of the organizing team for the first ever WordCamp Jacksonville coming in April 2016. And I will be speaking at WordCamp US in just a couple weeks! Thanks everyone that has supported and […]
You may have heard of style tiles before. Samantha Warren introduced them at SXSW in 2012 and then wrote about them for A List Apart. Creative Bloq has written about them.

When Jonathan and I were both selected to speak at WordCamp Miami, we were asked if we were the first married couple to speak at a WordCamp. I tried to confirm or deny it ahead of time, but didn’t have any luck. So, relying on the power of the internet I posted the claim on […]
How appropriate that this old presentation should be dug up on a Thursday. When I worked for Ball State’s Department of Physiology and Health Science as the Multimedia Specialist, one of my jobs was to give a presentation each semester to the digital media class. As health science graduates, they will find themselves working in low-resource […]

You know the rules: Unique password for every account Include letter, numbers, uppercase, lowercase, and characters Make sure it doesn’t use any memorable words, numbers, life events, etc. Don’t write them down THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE! I’ve broken […]
Winged messengers soared through the skies, shouting the news: “The Messiah is born in Bethlehem!” Word spread across the globe, from flock to flock. Convening their councils, the birds commissioned delegates, dispatched them with songs of praise and gifts of fruit and berries. From all over the world representatives came and paid tribute to the […]
I have a friend that just became an officially licensed Crossfit affiliate. He launched a website and now we’re working to make it the best it can be. One of the things I always need to do is learn about the target audience and find out what they’re looking for, their visual interests, etc. All […]
Sometimes you see something so simple, yet so far from the norms that all you can do is sit there, mesmerized. That’s what happened when I visited a website for the new Nissan Note. The site is in Japanese, but words aren’t necessary to be awestruck. Go take a look for yourself.
What is SEO? SEO. The abbreviation is thrown around a lot (usually while a lot of money is being thrown around). It stands for Search Engine Optimization. But what does it mean? SEO is all about increasing page rank. This means using our knowledge about search engines and humans to get web pages to the […]
