Writing is a huge part of building a great website and also the point where most sites fall short. Writing content isn't easy for most developers, they are good with the technical end and years ago with Visual Basic, I remember contests where it would challenge developers to write a function with less words last guy. Kind of like the show Name That Tune, where contestants had to identify a song within a few beats. Writers do a similar thing with landing the hook in the first sentence of a book. The challenge is can you grab the reader's attention and hold it with the first sentence. I've come up with a great one for a book I'll finish someday so I'm not going to reveal it here. One of my favorite comes from British historian and author Stewart Colette in his book Mumba. Here it is, "When you fall in love after the age of thirty, it's usually with someone else's wife." And, the Snoopy classic, "It was a dark and stormy night".
I enjoy writing without all the syntax and code sometimes, simply just to paint the picture with words is a true art, almost a lost art. Programming is art form, too. It's satisfying building a site and seeing it all come together, both form and function. The only drawback to coding is that the language changes often and web programming is an incorporation of many languages. For people outside the industry this would be like having to do your job in Russian and Italian starting next month. It has stabilized in the last 7 years and that's made development very productive.
I've gotten off on a little bit of a rant, point being, well two points, first I'm giving TechnologyGroup.com a new updated look to show a little of what I can do while I'm looking for a new gig. And secondly, I'll be adding a bunch of tutorials and code snippets to help other developers. Here's my portfolio and the rest will be under the Resources menu item I'll put up shortly with the others I'm working on. Please excuse the 404 if you get that in the meantime, I'm working on it live.
When you think about it, you learn everything from other people, so why not give something back. There's a lot to learn in web development, you have to be a designer, graphic artist, software developer, marketing professional and author to make something worth going to. I am a one man band that enjoys getting it all done. If you're looking to have some work done, I'm looking for a good client. Feel free to call or send a message and let's see what you have in mind.
With Escrow.com and others following suit, you can purchase a domain name in monthly allotments.
It's called Secure Domain Name Holding and what it means is the buyer gets control of the domain at the time of the first payment, while Escrow.com holds the domain until the final payment is made. The buyer and seller define the terms and the number of payments. Many purchasers probably are not aware they could buy a domain this way and this makes it easier. Divide it into two or twenty payments, whichever works best for you.

I took a walk on the beach at Sullivan's Island early this morning and I was just overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude. Nothing significant had happened or triggered the feeling I am still reeling from just an awareness and deep appreciation for all the people that have made a contribution for what I enjoy every day.
When I started out I was actually trying to shake off the pain I live with. In the past I've broken my neck, back and right leg. I've grown to accept that each morning, I roll the dice with what condition I'll be in when I wake up. Sometimes it's crippling, and I have to use a cane to get from the bed to the bathroom. Old injuries aren't getting any better with time. My neck seems to be affected the worst by spasms and sometimes pulls to the side. I fear someday I'll be confined to a wheelchair looking like Steven Hawking, only in my case without the mental horse power. Today wasn't that extreme, but still an effort to get going.
So I thought I'd take a little of my own advice and suck it up and walk it off. I managed to get up and about and drove out parking on an access roadway. I plugged in the headphones on my iPhone and launched a playlist and began to walk. Maybe the wind or the sea sparks an inspiration to push through the first 1/4 mile and the tempo from music in my ear helped establish a comfortable pace. The sound of the waves braking between songs is such a soothing pause. Before long I had walked all the way around to where I could view the City of Charleston across the harbor.
The wind was at my back and I ducked behind a sand dune to sit and watch the sun wake the city. I could help being thankful for all that I had in my life. The music sounded so great and clear. A high digital sampling rate accented every breath of the artist, every instrument in the song. I thought for a minute, thank you Steve Jobs you absolutely nailed this phone. And then I thought of all the people who had made a contribution, the designers, engineers and all the other unsung heroes that made a contribution in their lifetime to making the world a better place for everyone.
My mind raced to the soldiers that defended this port, the people that cleared the land, those that built the city I now call home, and everyone that made a contributing effort to allowing me to enjoy this moment and all the great people I have in my life. There's so many I could even list them or even begin to, the rush of all theses ideas and pieces of technology building upon each other was overwhelming. Hopefully each of us add a little something along the path of our lives to make it a little easier for the next guy. Walking back it occurred to me that in the end, that's all you can really hope to do. I don't know if the guy that invented the tennis ball realized how much joy he brought into a dog's life, but he nailed that too.
Found a great show on SC eTV, StartUp-USA. The host Gary Bredow provides a candid and in depth view of start up companies and their founders. Great for the aspiring entrepreneur and anyone that's considering stepping out on their own. .
They interviewed the owners of companies that had varying levels of success, each with a unique path of tribulations and victories. I though the show was well done. The interviewer asked the questions you'd want to know the answer to and a nice graphic visual on the funding timelines.
If their show isn't available in your area you can watch episodes from their website at StartUp-USA.com
Real Estate companies spend millions on any given Sunday afternoon advertising on television. With a great domain name you can get in front of people at their job, on the go and by other terms that people search for your goods and services. A different domain name can represent a new segment of your business or re-brand it, and help reel these customers back into your bottom line. Unlike television and radio advertisements, with domain names your money isn't gone in 30 seconds.
