Okay, so here we are and it sucks. We’ve managed to elect a president who doesn’t respect us, who looks down on us, and who has said degrading things about people on national TV, and still won. It looks bleak. I understand why people voted for him.

To get the most visibility during a major event like a holiday, you need to have content ready 45 days in advance. It’s called the 45-Day Rule, and even if you publish everything right now, you’re already within 45 days of Christmas itself, much less Cyber Monday.

“The sun dimmeth, the land sinketh, gusheth forth steam and gutting fire.” Quoting Norse poetry, celebrated documentarian Werner Herzog uses these words to describe our planet’s ancient forces in his recent film Into the Inferno.

Back in September, team 10up gathered in Atlanta from around the globe for four days of knowledge sharing, team building, and face-to-face time. Our days were filled with inspiring, educational presentations from our peers, while the evenings let us kick back and relax with teammates whom we normally only see on our computer screen.
Not that long ago, I made an attempt to fix what I saw as one of the biggest issues facing session management in WordPress.

Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is something we are extremely passionate about, especially when the cause supports local schools.

Donald Trump used Twitter to make outrageous claims during the entire 2016 election, and he’s still making them after winning the presidency. He is now turning Twitter into a state-media machine…

I started creating online courses in 2014. At the time it was for fun and really just to see if I could create one (I never intended it to be the main part of my business).

I hate popups, so I was hesitant to try one on my site. But the results from OptinMonster’s Exit Intent® popup speak for themselves. I doubled my subscription rate immediately without annoying my users. I haven’t had a single complaint. My only regret is that I didn’t start using OptinMonster sooner.
