Cloud computing is all the rave today, with sitcoms even referring to it (see Big Bang Theory Cloud back up). While it is a buzzword, sometimes, you hear things from some people that makes you convinced that not everyone understands what the Cloud really is.
Here’s a quick explanation from PCMag:
“…to be considered “cloud computing,” you need to access your data or your programs over the Internet, or at the very least, have that data synchronized with other information over the Net.”
That’s clear as day, isn’t it? Read More
The TV season has ended, and we’re all stuck with watching reruns of our favorite TV shows. There’s the alternative of catching up on TV shows that we didn’t have time to watch during the season, of course. Then there’s the possibility of actually going out of the house and discovering what the outside world has to offer.
However way you’re handling this downtime in TV, we know one thing: last season had a lot to offer the TV enthusiast – from the big HBO hit Game of Thrones (which turned many a non-fantasy fan into avid viewers) to Netflix’s Orange is the New Black (which caters perfectly to the binge watching crowd) to Breaking Bad (which most people agree is the best TV show ever) to The Oscars to The Grammy Awards.

There used to be a time when everyone venerated Google. These days, there are some who think Google is evil. There are some who hate it with a passion. And there are still some who look up to the Big G.
However, with all that we’ve heard and seen about the working conditions at Google, it is but understandable that many a young (or old, what’s age anyway?) online professional/IT pro/you-name-it wants to work there. Read More
So you’ve got awesome content. Why isn’t everyone commenting on it and sharing it? Why isn’t it filling up Facebook feeds like the content of Buzzfeed, Viralnova, and Upworthy? What are you doing wrong? Why isn’t your awesome content going viral?
Truth be told, the use of the word “viral” in its current tech-related form is getting old. Sometimes, one even wishes that “viral” simply meant something related to health concerns; but those days are gone, and it’s content going viral that all online content creators want to happen.
If you’re been frustrated because you know that you are creating awesome content but you’re not getting the reach that you want, here’s an infographic that may help you go in the right direction.
The other day, I had a very confusing day, thanks to my laptop going nuts on me. I thought for sure that I got infected by a virus or some malware. No matter what search I did on Google, I always got redirected to search results for “biometrics”.
It didn’t stop there. When creating a new post, the title field and time stamp kept reverting to specific data. It.drove.me.nuts.
And I panicked. I immediately downloaded Avast for Mac and did a full system scan, but everything was clean. Read More
Censorship is such a controversial concept, with opposing camps seemingly not willing to give an inch. When it comes to the Internet, censorship becomes an even more sensitive matter, what with social media giving every Jack and Jill a personal megaphone to magnify their every opinion. And, just like what that guy on TV said the other night, opinions are like a$$h—s – everyone has one. Read More
With the way technology is evolving and becoming even more integrated in our everyday lives, however, it seems that instead of being “anyone” on the Internet, it could be “anything”.
I’ve known some writers and bloggers who struggle when asked this question. Terms like “freelance writer”, “online copywriter”, “content writer”, “pro blogger”, and “content creator” have been thrown around, but whichever term you prefer to use to describe your online job, you can’t get away from one thing: the influence of Google on what you do.
Of course, we all know – and accept to a certain degree – that Google is not everything. It is not the end all, be all of the online world; still, we scramble around like headless chickens when Google (or Matt Cutts) makes an announcement related to algorithm changes, penalties, and so on.

You’ve heard all the usual tips about giving your blog the edge – write quality content, pay attention to your blog design, be active on social media, and so on. You can go on and on with these tips, but I believe it all boils down to a fundamental factor: your writing.
You do not have to be the best writer in the world. You don’t need to be grammar perfect. You don’t need all the big words. But you do need to find that way of writing that will catch your readers’ attention AND keep it, too.
If you need more specific, actionable tips, here is a handy guide in the form of an infographic.
