What I Learned from a Career in Web Hosting

Two years ago, if anyone would have told me that I’d be working in web hosting, I’d have called them a liar. It is an accepted fact among my peers and colleagues that I like writing. Putting pen to paper just seems to beguile me — hence the reason I majored in journalism and communications. I wanted to meet people, inspire others and interview legends while clutching a digital audio recorder and asking pressing questions. It’s funny that sometimes the things that we plan on doing don’t quite work out the way that we expected – not that there’s anything wrong with that. After all, sometimes our trajectories in terms of a career can lead us to something we didn’t quite anticipate…like web hosting for example.

Internet Explorer (IE) used to be the top dog of browsers back in the day. It was so much better than what AOL had to offer, and hey, it came pre-installed on every new PC! The little blue “e” was how you got to the Internet. Then slowly, but surely, folks wised up, and other browsers such as Opera, Firefox and Chrome emerged with better interfaces, better features and a lot less freezing. Plus the other guys don’t have nearly as many security holes. IE is like Swiss cheese.

How I Fell in Love with Twitter

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that social media has practically revolutionized the way people communicate with one another. What began with simple rotary dial telephones has now evolved into something of an Internet insurrection. As someone who generally rejects the latest in technological crazes and fads, I’m not ashamed to say that I fought off joining Facebook, held off on signing up for Twitter, avoided Linkedin at all costs, and flat out declined membership with Pinterest.

Ideal Appliances for Businesspersons on the Go

Being industrious seems to be a virtual prerequisite in every businessperson’s life. Sometimes having a high octane job simply comes with the territory. While some corporate executives and go-getters are able to successfully balance a hectic work life with time at home, others merely cannot. Perchance there’s an explanation for that. Children can get in the way. The spouse requires attention. Dinner has to be cooked, and there’s laundry to be done. All of this could be just as tedious as a taxing business meeting. However, with modern day advances in technology, some household duties have become a bit easier to manage.
