• Over the next few months, I’m going to be doing some cleanup on this site to prepare for the “next stage” in its life. A few things I’m going to focus on:

    1. Site(s) cleanup – a few people have found a place to create subsites of this one. This is a feature that is not yet (supposed to be) available, so those sites will be deleted. In the future, I may allow paying members to create their own subsites, but not yet.
    2. Plugins cleanup – some plugins (functionality) are making parts of this site run slowly or not function well. I’m going to minimalize the plugins this site depends on in order to streamline it. (So some things may break – send me a message if they do.)
    3. Site restructuring – I’m going to streamline the content as well to make for better reading and finding of information – beginning with Menus and Categories (today).
    4. New theme – I’m (still) in the middle of creating a new theme for the next cycle of this site. Hopefully we’ll get that implemented shortly.
    5. Grammar plugin – I’m planning to pull all the Grammar posts out of the normal Posts and separate them into their own area for better organization and management of the grammar points.

    Logistically speaking, the following also need to be updated:

    1. Better SEO – This means going back through the old Posts, editing, updating, and improving SEO.
    2. Better Backups – possibly including separating out the Media files to a separate domain (should also improve page load time)
  • Thoughts are Things

    Truly, “thoughts are things,” and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire for their translation into riches or other material objects.—Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich I recently had the pleasure of reading the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill again. The first […]
