You could make 8,209.47 per month … ya right!

Pile of MoneyWow, it has been a long time since I wrote that article about making money on the internet! Any way with the holiday season and some well deserved time off now over, I can get back to business, and in this article I want to continue discussing the premise that a lot of the internet marketers who are trying to sell you advise or programs about how to make money on the internet are basically phonies. That’s right, they are simple trying to get you to part with your hard earned money but really don’t deliver! If you read the first article, you’ll know that I believe that there is no such thing as a “free lunch”! And what I mean by that is that no one can promise you that you’ll make tons of money on the internet if you buy their system for $197.00 or $ 29.00 or whatever! No one period! Continue reading …

Can You Make Money On The Internet.

No Free LunchSome time ago I wrote an article entitled “You Can’t Make Money On The Internet!” wherein I postulated that most people would not be able to make money on the Internet because they just didn’t have the patience and persistence one required to succeed. Well today I thought I’d revisit this issue and examine some of the propaganda that I’ve received in the last 3 or 4 months. Much of this information leads you to believe that you don’t need the patience nor persistence to make money on the Internet, but I know for a fact that “just ain’t so!”. Before I take a look at this information though, I want to state that I firmly believe that “there is no such thing as a free lunch!“, period. When some one tells me that they can generate “tons” of target traffic to any web site I desire, and all I have to do is punch a couple of buttons, I just know that it’s a scam. Getting traffic to your web site is just not that simple. Continue reading …

Your Logo

LogosA few days ago I was speaking with a friend of mine about a project he was working on and some of the difficulties he was experiencing . He does a lot more freelance work than I do, and he does get himself into some interesting problems. Anyway he needed to get a logo done for his client, but there was one big problem: the client didn’t want to spend any money on logo design. His question to me was, “Did I know anyone in the Graphics Arts field that might like to do him a favor?” Well, I’m not the sort of person that expects someone to do me a favor just because he or she happens to know me. Besides, he was getting paid to produce the site, so the costs should be borne by him in my estimation. Then I found out that he was doing this work for free. Well that was his decision, but I didn’t think that he should expect others to feel the same. Continue reading …

The Beginnings of A Document, Part 2

Screenshot of Simple Site TemplateIn my last article about creating an (X)HTML document, I spend some time talking about the DOCTYPE tag that all documents need to start with. I did give you a couple of examples, but as one reader put it, I really glossed over the idea and I should have spent some more time examining the different types of DOCTYPE values and what they mean. So rather than jumping right into METATAGS, I’m going to spend a little more time dealing with the DOCTYPE tag.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), in their documentation, does define many different types of HTML – XHTML. In fact at the time I wrote this, there were 21 different DOCTYPE declarations listed on the W3C’s Valid DTD list page. And I’m quite sure that you could probable find as many more if you looked hard enough, but the one’s listed on the W3C’s web page are the most common ones currently in use. Now just to refresh your memory, a Document Type Definition (DOCTYPE) establishes what elements and attributes your document will use and what rules you plan to follow in building your page. By using the right DOCTYPE you will ensure that your document will be rendered correctly by a standards compliant web browsers. Continue reading …

The Beginnings of A Document

Screenshot of Simple Site TemplateLast time I wrote about using a minimalistic approach to creating a WordPress Theme. What I meant by that was using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) where ever possible rather than using images to convey your meaning. Well perhaps I wasn’t too clear about this because one of my associates at work proceeded to inform me that not everyone has enough knowledge about (X)HTML (Extensible Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS to do that. And in her opinion it was just that much easier to use a graphic than struggle with “code” to achieve the look you wanted. I was somewhat taken back by her comments because I thought that most everyone that work with the web had a basic understanding of (X)HTML and CSS, but I guess I was wrong because, well she is a good designer, but I never guessed that she had a limited understanding of, in my estimation, what are the key components of any web site – (X)HTML and CSS. In fact, I couldn’t see how you would go about building a website without an understanding of these fundamental tools. Continue reading …
