Deprecated Stuff

Note about this site

Most of the content on this site is old and may or may not be of use. I don't like to break the internet, so I leave these articles here for historical reasons.

Enjoy and there is some stuff that is still current.

Automatically Post To Twitter

This is now deprecated.

I no longer recommend feedburner if you are using WordPress or another blog platform that has a feed built-in. I also no longer recommend automatically posting to any site, including facebook and twitter. You are better off on any of the social networks, including Twitter, to tailor the message to your audience, not just use the title like most automation software does. If you want to use the power of social media, you are better off hand-crafting your messages. Sure, it takes a little time but, in the end you will give your readers a better experience.

Simple Wordpress Fix For Security

Well, technically not Wordpress, but your hosting is probably vulnerable.

From http://www.darkreading.com/database_security/security/attacks/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=224300052&cid=nl_DR_DAILY_2010-04-13_h if you want to read the whole thing.

There was an attack on Wordpress blogs hosted at Network Solutions, but your host is probably guilty as well.

Amazon Collections

We're going to talk about a little feature that Amazon has included in August of 2013.  In August 2013, Amazon quietly released a new feature that will be of interest to marketers called Amazon Collections.  It's a direct competitor to Pinterest.  There's some significant differences though.  Why Amazon even matters.  First, a quick recap for those who don't like or use Amazon.  I know you're out there.  One reason Amazon's very important, especially to the men reading this, is that Amazon has a very diverse audience.
