OPTINMONSTER

 

fuck optinmonster

If you are a user of WordPress you probably heard of these guys. Unfortunately my hosting company installs a bunch of shit plugins and this one, this one…. Ok so anything “MONSTER” sucks they have plugins that are branded differently and if you get rid of one (OptinMonster) in this example one of the other plugins reinstalls and activates OptinMonster again. I don’t remember saying, hey I approve of you installing your shitty extensions (paid only) and please notify me FIVE times in email how bad ass your plugin is and flash an alert in my WP dashboard. Fuck yes I OPTIN! Get it?

Duane, why are you so mad about this? I’m not I’m just an asshole and annoyed and that is the worst combination you can find an  annhole (annoyed-asshole). Besides if your shit was so fucking legit and good why in the fuck do you need to send me FIVE emails to tell me how good it is? If it were true then just be like my dick, I lay it down and it speaks for itself, it’s just good I don’t have to push it or slap your face with it, it’s bad ass I don’t need to promote it. Oh wait sorry I digress.

Fuck OPTINMONSTER, their plugins and their unwanted emails. I’m going to send them FIVE emails and tell them how much I hate them in each one because I wanted to spend my day angry and waste it acting a fool. 

G-Eazy: thats the shit I never said….

Honest Jobs

 

 

Honest Jobs for honest people

 

It’s not often that I come across a company like this one.  I first contacted them Sunday, it’s Monday and I have a couple personal emails from one of their Employment/Outreach Specialists welcoming me and giving me an update on my application.

The CEO Harley Blakeman started the company I wanted to start a few years ago, however he did it so with any luck I will get to work for him. 

Did I mention these guys are in the business to help people like me that have been “affected” by the criminal justtice system. Staticstically if you hired me, I would rarely if ever miss work. 

My level of loyalty would be beyond measure, And it’s likely I would outperform my coworkers. My appreciation for the opportunity would be well, great.

Why, well that’s very simple I have applied for 332 jobs in the past year – almost one a day! I’ve had 34 interviews, 5 offer letters and 5 withdrawl letters citing my background as an issue. So I got the job, I had an offer, a start date and I was in one case parked out front 30 minutes early, excited to start my first day. My father raised me to be pragmatic, “son life isn’t fair, stop fucking crying and get on with it.” Good ol’ Bill Cummins, I miss that mofo.

Categories and Tags

If you write about a variety of subjects, categories can help your readers find the posts that are most relevant to them. For instance, if you run a consulting business, you may want some of your posts to reflect work you’ve done with previous clients, while having other posts act as informational resources. In this particular case, you can set up 2 categories: one labeled Projects and another labeled Resources. You’d then place your posts in their respective categories.

Pages vs. Posts

clock

If you’re new to WordPress you may be wondering what’s the big deal behind Pages and Posts. At first glance they appear to be one and the same: if you were to create either a new page or a new post you’d be presented with nearly identical interfaces and in many cases the public appearance of pages and posts will look the same.

Don’t let this fool you. There’s a very fundamental difference between the two and that difference is what makes CMSs, like WordPress, great platforms for integrating blogs with traditional websites.

Pages

Think about the kind of pages that make up a typical website. Most often you’ll see pages like “Home”, “About Us”, “Services”, “Contact Us”, etc. Within WordPress these are often treated as Pages; documents that have no particular regard for the time they were posted.

For example, when you visit the “About Us” page of your favorite company’s website you don’t expect the content to be very different from what was available there a week ago.
