Should I Share My Political Views?

I have always been reluctant to post any of my political views, ever. I am of the feeling that my blogging influence, whatever that might be, should not have any influence on important matters, such as who should be our next president. Just because people may or may not like the way I write about

I Enjoy Web Applications More Than SEO: Today

Yesterday I went to see a prospect about building out a web based application to help automate the company’s processes. The company has lots of inefficiencies, from an application stand point, and I get excited about the opportunities available to automate and document the processes. In short, a company may use five different applications, some
