Are You Prepared For When Your Website (or Blog) Is Hacked?

Whether you're an individual blogger or a business, it's likely at some point your website will get hacked. I've managed hundreds of websites over the years, and unfortunately, it is fairly common for this to happen. So there are two questions you need to answer.

The Ultimate Guide For Building Awesome Joomla Websites

The Ultimate Guide For Building Awesome Joomla Websites

Have you ever heard of Joomla, the open-source content management system (CMS)? Introduced by a friend when this tool was in its infancy, this became our go-to resources for websites when I owned and operated my marketing company. Joomla drives my personal website and blog, as well as Path Of The Freelancer. I also drive most of my website design clients to build their website on Joomla.

This page is designed to help those curious about Joomla on how to maximize their experience. Here's what you can expect as you read this ultimate Joomla guide.

  • Designing Joomla Websites

Interview With The Joomla Transition Team

Interview With The Joomla Transition Team [for Joomla]

One of my service offerings is building semi-custom Joomla websites. Joomla is my preferred open-source CMS platform, and I've been using it almost since its inception (2005). To get more involved in the Joomla community as well as moving outside my own bubble, I volunteered to contribute to the Joomla magazine. As a result, I was placed in charge of interviewing the team of people who were transitioning the Joomla organization to new leadership.
