In most cases we can recover, but if the worst comes to the worst we need a backup to save us.

So today on the podcast we’ve got a new hosting provider for you, and that provider is 10Web. They are a platform that is hoping to take care of all of your WordPress needs.

Go check out 10Web in the podcast this week.Read More
Let’s be clear, this is a great story about something that we’d all like to happen to us! So you’re a developer and you come up with an idea that you decide you should build. You really don’t think about whether or not there is a target market and how many potential customers you’re going to have, you just build it because you have the ability to do it.
