How to Create a Professional-Looking Email Signature

A professional and briefly informative email signature is very important for anyone who sends a lot of business emails. Including bloggers. You want your recipients to know who you are (name, position, and company), as well as all the methods they can use to reach you.

How to Create a Child Theme

The one thing that I found confusing when I started self-hosting was creating a child theme. I had never heard this term before and people in the forums threw it out there constantly. Every time I asked a question, whether it involved CSS or not, the response was, "You need to create a child theme."...more

Hey HTML - you're kind of a jerk.

Hey HTML - you're kind of a jerk. We are building our website. Well, we're supposed to be building our website. We registered our domain name long ago, thinking we were rock stars. Realizing that neither one of us had the time, or any idea what to do with it, we found a friend of a friend, that knew some guy somewhere, who happened to be a web designer, on the side. He wasn't charging much. ...more

How to Embed Fonts the Easy Way

For a while, I toyed with the idea of using embedded fonts to liven up my web pages. I would read articles on how to do it and get discouraged. Some browsers needed one kind of font, some another -- it was too much bother. Then Google came out with a font-embedding system that is dead easy. You can get started with them at the Google Font API page. ...more

Understanding NoFollow and DoFollow

Linking, whether you're linking to another site or your site is being linked to, is an important part of SEO, (search engine optimization.) How a site treats links is important because it can determine how search engines treat those links as well.

Tutorial Links: Learn HTML, CSS, and WordPress

I have been a collector my entire life. I think I come by it naturally since my mother's side of the family tends to "collect" things in the form of never throwing anything away on the off chance it might be valuable or hold the key to the family's history. From reality television, I now know they are hoarders, not collectors. Me? I tend to deny my problem because what I mostly collect are links. That is, when I read an article online that I think may come in handy some day, I save the link. I have a folder on my computer's desktop called mhl, (short for Mighty Helpful Links). Within that folder are sub-folders for specific categories for things like SEO, vlogging, analytics, etc. Oh, yes. Make no mistake: I hoard links. Today, though, that may work in your favor--especially if you're at all interested in learning the basics of HTML or CSS or have a WordPress blog you'd like to tweak. That's right, folks, I'm sharing some of my links to tutorials. ...more
