June 2012 Google Analytics

It’s been a while since I posted some stats on this website.  But looking at my monthly reports from Google Analytics, this sites visits are still going up. I’ve been running this website for almost 12 years now.  The content has changed several times over the years but the domain is the same and the owner, me, is still the same.  There are two portions of the website that still get a decent amount of traffic that haven’t been touched in years.  Those are my CCNA study notes – that section is probably way out of date – and the…

Pamper Your Dog

Do you spoil your dog?  Then a website I ran across this week might be the place for you.  Personally I think it’s worth a click just to see the picture of the pimped out dog on the home page.  (I’m not stealing the image so you’ll have to visit the site to see the pic!) This site has a lot of offer for any dog lover.  It has dog jokes, fun quotes about dogs, as well as information about dog nutrition  and training.  There is also a section of pics and videos.  I didn’t notice a way to submit…

I Love Smugmug

It’s been a while since I have used Smugmug.  I always thought they were really cool because the first time I signed up they sent me free stuff (well I guess I paid for it).  I had a cool Smugmug camera strap and a few bumper stickers.  My online orders are few and far between (come on guys being a starving artist isn’t any fun).  Over the past 2 years I’ve tried other online photograph order websites and have finally come back to Smugmug.  Although most of the usability is the same there have been a lot of updates with…

Photography Website Redesign

I’m on the 3rd redesign of my photography website.  The current one was easy for me to update but I’m getting feedback from potential customers that they want to see more of my work.  The work is on the website but it’s not organized very well.  I was using a blog format with is easy for me but is not effectively meeting my customers needs. I looked at some online resources and have not been very happy with what I was finding or the pricing.  It seems that a lot of photographers website look a lot alike and that is…
