Your IT guy is not your web developer

Another link post today. I came across something Cody Landefeld wrote a few weeks ago and enjoyed the read. I’ve had this experience not only with some clients, but my parents, as well.

“It’s a common misconception that people who use computers or work on computers for a living know everything about computers.

Do your parents or grandparents still call you when their printer isn’t working or worse yet ask for help with how to get on Facebook? It’s not a stretch to assume that your computer savvy nephew or grandson can also build your website.

Workspace Upgrade

Decided to give my workspace a little bit of an upgrade today. I picked up a new desk from IKEA to replace the old executive-style desk that I was using, which I wasn’t a fan of because I’m a lefty and there was no left-handed note-taking space.

Also grabbed some Cyber Acoustics speakers off Amazon.

The best part: it only took about 30 minutes to assemble this desk.

On Being (or Not Being) a “Dev”

Post Status wrote about a post from Zé Fontainhas on his blog, called “On Being (or Not Being) a ‘Dev’“.

Zé puts in words a lot of the things that I’ve felt over the years. While the WordPress community has been extremely welcoming in most situations, there are still times when people get a little judgmental.

Anyways, it’s a great thought piece that I felt was worth sharing.

Big Things on the Horizon

I hate to roll with another short post today, but I wanted to keep my challenge alive.

I’ve got some big things on the horizon that I can’t wait to share with you all.

Don’t worry (cause I know you are), this 100 posts challenge won’t be filled with two paragraph posts. I’ve also got a list of things I want to write for CSSForge, but no time today.
