Can you do whatever you want with your business?

Have you ever played the game Cards Against Humanity? It's a card game where each turn one player will read a card and the other players will all play one of their cards that they think the first player will pick as ‘the best.' As an example, the first player might play a card that…

Getting past first impressions

The year was 2008. I was in the process of organizing a conference centered around WordPress and was reaching out to some people who I wanted to speak at the event. I really wanted somebody to talk about eCommerce, so I reached out to the guys at Instinct. At the time, they weren't just the…

Watching it click

With WordCamp Vegas less than two weeks away, it's pretty much on my mind 24/7 at this point. Just making sure I've got all the details sorted out, food and shirts ordered, schedule sorted… It can be a bit overwhelming. But there's only so many times you can go over a list of tasks, right?…

The VegasGeek top 10 movies of 2013

December is such a great time of year. You get the holidays, of course, but something else I always look forward to is the ‘best of the year' posts. Best movies, best albums, best celebrity meltdown, sports team, goals, assists, saves… I could go on and on. I freakin' love the top 10 lists. I…

How I eliminated 100s of emails per month

Yesterday when I was thinking about my post for Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to do a list of my favorite Thanksgiving themed movies. I knew my #1 was going to be Planes, Trains and Automobiles, that was easy. But for the rest, I would just hit up the interwebs and see what…

Peaks and Valleys

On my company site, we get a fair number of people filling out our contact form looking for help with a project. Believe me, I consider ourselves very lucky to be in a profession where there doesn't seem to be any shortage of work. As the forms come in, we do our best to review…

Refining my blogging process

Did I mention that I'm really enjoying blogging again? Well, that makes it sound like there was a time when I didn't enjoy it. Not true. I've always enjoyed blogging, but have typically been too busy to do it. Recently I've made an effort to move a couple of the things I LIKE to do…

You are marketing to me all wrong

Last week my company was listed in an article on VegasInc.com titled Eight Las Vegas tech companies you probably haven't heard of. I always find it interesting to get listed in articles that aren't directly related to the WordPress community. The attention they garner is very different than, say, being mentioned on poststat.us. What I…
