WordPress or Website Builder… I help you choose

Isn’t WordPress a Website Builder? No, WordPress(.org) isn’t technically considered a “website builder.” It is a free and open source content management system that you can download and use to build your website or blog. You don’t run WordPress as an application on your computer. Rather, you install it on your web host and then login to build your website. Even though WordPress is free to use, you will have to buy web hosting to use it which can be anywhere from $3-10/month.   Advantages of WordPress More...

Optimizing Images for the Web (Speed & Size)

Optimizing images was important in 1997 when internet speeds were barely at a crawl, but it’s still just as important today. Internet speeds are blazing fast but images are becoming massive.

Vistaprint Website Builder – Any Good?

Vistaprint is known for business cards. I bought my business cards from them myself. But even though they are a printing company, can you really blame them for getting into the website game?
