August is upon us already and another year is flying past. I must admit that I have a lot of work going on behind the scenes right now so I haven’t had as much time to update the blog.
Rather than deny the month of July existed, I decided to dedicate a post to a selection of links that I discovered and found useful or interesting throughout the month.
Links of The Month
1. Thinking about starting a business? Here is why you shouldn’t!
Clearly I’m wired up a little dodgy when the perceived downsides to business inspire me to work even harder. Either way this is just a single post from the Quick Sprout blog by Neil Patel. It’s turning out to be a great resource so if you have an interest in entrepreneurship you’ll probably want to check it out sometime.
2. 60+ Awesome WordPress Tutorials
Pretty much one of the best collections of WordPress Tutorials that I’ve come across. WordPress is the powerful blogging engine behind many of the biggest blogging and social media inspired sites on the net today. As you may already know, I provide my professional web development services on WordPress and even I managed to learn a couple tricks in here.
3. Website Backups & What to Do When They Fail
Yeah, you caught me! I snuck a little self promotion in here but for very good reason. Within the month of July not only did my laptop say goodnight for the final time but my backup PC had a little fit as well. Luckily with my slightly excessive backup solutions I was able to work from the library, a friends house and finally get another PC up and running without any data loss or major setbacks at all.
This was my introduction to kk.org and I have to say I was impressed. The depth and insight that is shared so often is quite amazing. The theory of 1000 true fans is definitely one to read.
5. Are You Afraid of Being the Small Fish in the Pond?
Last but not least is a post from Slacker Reform. Don’t be deceived by the lenth of this post, if you take this advice to heart there is a ton more value to offer than you could ever imagine.
So there you have it…
Without drowning you in a waterfall of links, I’ve shared a select few links that I’ve enjoyed or found useful in hope that they can do the same for you. If you’ve enjoyed this post and would like to see more like this then do let me know. Or perhaps you’ve found some great links on the web this month. Why not leave a comment below…
