Entrepreneurs, is your business investment ready? | Startups

Entrepreneurs, is your business investment ready? | Startups: "Find great people

You can’t do it all on your own. People make businesses...

You’ve heard all the clich├ęs before, but they stand up. Through existing contacts and networking, find other great entrepreneurially-minded people to get involved. This can be as a founder or NED (non-executive director). NEDs are basically advisers who usually take a few share options for their time."

Entrepreneurs, is your business investment ready? | Startups: "ootstrap it yourself

Find a way of financing the business yourself (between the founders) to get the business past a proof of principle stage. This is important for many reasons:

a) By self-funding, you are able to create real, tangible value in the business, so when you begin talking to outside investors you have a more valuable proposition. This helps your negotiating power and should result in you getting a much more positive equity-for-cash deal."

About | Chaidomains

About | Chaidomains: "The author and publisher of these affiliated websites had hoped to grow these pages in a specific direction.

Anyone with even the most basic familiarity with the overly broad category of; ”New Beginnings”, should at least have a rudimentary understanding of the concept that once an idea is planted into some level of physicality, the idea then begins to develop and take on an existence of its own."

Super Simple Dynamic Canonical Link Code | Bryan Hadaway's Web + Tech Blog

Super Simple Dynamic Canonical Link Code | Bryan Hadaway's Web + Tech Blog: "Canonical Link Script

The importance of the canonical link is primarily to clear up duplicate content issues. That is, to help search engines not make the mistake of confusing two different URLs that are actually the same page as two different pages.

It doesn’t help if you actually have duplicate content. Also, to give Google a clean representation and suggestion of what you want your URLs to look like and how you want Google to index and display them in search results."

WordPress Backups « WordPress Codex

WordPress Backups « WordPress Codex: "How many backups should I keep? 
Excellent question. Most people make a backup and then just replace it every time. It saves space and is less to worry about. But what if that backup file is corrupted or lost? Then what? The general rule of thumb is to keep at least three backups and keep them in three different places or forms, like CD/DVDs, different hard drives, a thumbdrive, web disk, your e-mail account, etc.

My database backups are huge! Can I do anything about that? 
Possibly. Typically, anti-spam and statistics plugins can add large amounts of data and because they are constantly gathering information, the database can swell significantly. When backing up the database, such information is probably not important to keep. Do not mark those tables for backup when selecting them during the backup process"

Changing File Permissions « WordPress Codex

Changing File Permissions « WordPress Codex: "user account that lets you FTP files back and forth to your server, but your server itself may run using a separate user, in a separate usergroup, such as dhapache or nobody. If WordPress is running as the FTP account, that account needs to have write access, i.e., be the owner of the files, or belong to a group that has write access. In the latter case, that would mean permissions are set more permissively than default (for example, 775 rather than 755 for folders, and 664 instead of 644)."

It Costs Too Much - Forbes: "I write blogs, articles and a newsletter. I host a radio show. I tweet, Facebook and share nuggets of advice almost daily.

I can’t tell you how flattering it is to be approached by representatives from major companies seeking my wisdom and advice. It shows they are listening, and like what I have to say."

Creative Licence » Blog Archive » The power of being (not) anonymous

Creative Licence » Blog Archive » The power of being (not) anonymous: "Vice Magazine caters to tragic youth across the world, serving up snarky fashion commentary, adventure journalism, creative profiling and at least for today, cuddly snow leopards. It used to be cool, but is rapidly becoming not so, thanks largely to my knowing about it and now putting down a form of words.

The comment streams under articles and their legendary Do’s & Don’t’s (caution, not always SFW) used to be a fine example of the internet at its callous, bigoted best. As users trolled each other for a reaction it almost always got offensive.

In the last few days, Vice has implemented a plugin that requires users to authenticate before they post a comment using facebook or another third party account."

Create A Network « WordPress Codex

Create A Network « WordPress Codex: "The sites in a multisite network are separate, very like the separate blogs at WordPress.com. They are not interconnected like things in other kinds of networks (even though plugins can create various kinds of interconnections between the sites). If you plan on creating sites that are strongly interconnected, that share data, or share users, then a multisite network might not be the best solution."

Who Is Stalking You On Facebook? Who Is Your Biggest Fan?: " While to some, this may seem like an invasion, I like it when people try to sell me things, and I have no problem saying no. However, there is a far more insidious algorithm embedded in facebook. By a few refreshes and a few clicks, you can easily see who has most recently been looking at your facebook profile, down to a timeframe of 36 hours, as well as who your overall top stalkers are. Of course, they may not be exactly stalking you, but they are watching you."
