Keeping a Low-Budget Blog Professional Looking

There are a ton of different people online today looking to make a buck off of their blogs. Unfortunately that means that the other people who haven’t done that have taken to the idea that a blog is something that is easily made and amateur at best. While there are always those that use their blogs in a productive and successful way, many just start up a blog and leave it lying dormant.

There are simple and easy tricks to get some credit to your blog’s name, if you’re willing to put in a little bit of time.

How to Handle a DDOS Attack the Right Way

Anyone who’s spent any amount of time on the Internet is likely aware of what a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack is, even if they don’t know the name for it.

Let others give you input and critique your site so can make adjustments and ensure a pleasant viewing experience for your customers. Before you begin designing, here are a few mistakes to watch out for that will make visitors want to steer clear of your business. 1. Too Big Banner Having a banner at the top of your page with a logo or design to highlight the name of your website or blog can be a really cute addition to your site, but make sure it stays small.
