There is good indication .coms and .nets will return a steady 5% yearly growth for premium names during the next decade. The new and healthy market in one-word .io and .co domains will continue upward. But older gTLDs will not see a hold in value in this new decade. It's also time to sell lesser combo-word .coms and reinvest in one-word paradigms. Here's Blotter's domain name values predictions for the 2020s:
Owning 2 or 3 one-word .coms will yield a bigger return on investment than 20-100 combo-word .coms
One-word .io or .co domains have better value than combo-word .coms
International financial market indices will heavily influence domain name values
Our company's developers are located in South Carolina where one of the most prominent architectural characteristics in South Carolina's upstate is the brickwork in Greenville used for walls, buildings and pathways. The production of bricks in South Carolina increased dramatically during reconstruction following the Civil War. Today, one can hardly drive through a Greenville neighborhood without seeing bricks used in every construction, whether on pathways, in walls or for the foundations and facades of the buildings themselves.
History of brickwork in Greenville
During the 19th century's industrial revolution in the United States more than 10 million bricks were being made annually. When it came time to construct the factories and mills to fuel the booming economy of a prosperous Greenville, bricks were the material of choice. Greenville had long been a refuge for Charleston gentry who bought...
The WordPress 5.0 Gutenberg upgrade will change how the current page editor handles. There have been no schedules released for when the 5.0 forced upgrade will occur. WordPress developers are building out a new way to engage content that promises to improve visual elements of pages and eliminate the need for shortcodes. Called “blocks”, WordPress 5.0 promises to allow designers to style images, videos and other media content with a true WYSIWIG (What You See Is What You Get) experience, further dumbing down the methods for publishing good design on WordPress.
WordPress Gutenberg aims to eliminate the need for custom code
There is the option to immediately upgrade WordPress Gutenberg by installing a new plugin on your website; however, Blotter will await the WordPress 5.0 upgrade when Gutenberg is scheduled to be a forced upgrade. Rumors have it that the “classic” editor will be available until at least the end of 2021.
WordPress Guttenberg is not currently finished. We do not recommend installing the Gutenberg plugin unless a website manager is designing a new website.
There are no security benefits to early adoption and the upgrade primarily focuses on design of a website. At this point, WordPress says there is no need for reorganizing existing designs; however, there is indication that infrastructure changes may be needed in the future to stay compatible with WordPress versions. We will update you when an announcement is made as to its forced adoption.
Adoption of WordPress Gutenberg is something that early-adopters may want to explore, and anyone building new websites should use it out of the gate. Blotter plans to develop all new websites utilizing WordPress Gutenberg as it expects this standard to replace earlier versions of the visual editor.
Similar to the adoption of new operating systems on your mobile phone, just because WordPress Gutenberg is offered as an upgrade doesn’t mean website managers should move forward with the new technology. WordPress Gutenberg is likely to create conflicts in table design elements, especially. And within the next five years shortcodes will be a legacy item that may be ignored in future WordPress releases.
Everyone has a story about a bad boss ruining a good company. If you want to know how to fix a bad boss – the best advice is to let the situation fix itself. Incompetence, aggression and not getting along nearly always ends with a bad boss departing and new rules put in place to prevent it from happening again. We all want Transformational Leadership and are amazed when jerks have success leading companies. But exceptions to the rules will always be the excuse for bad behavior and incompetence.
1. Fix a bad boss the way of a bad President
Depending on whom you ask, many of our past Presidents of the United States (POTUS) were bad bosses. Many believe Donald Trump to be...
I was trying to argue with manners during a panel forum when my mic stopped working. “Is the mic working? Can you hear me in the back?” I asked loudly. Someone in the back of the room screamed at the top of his voice, "I can't hear you talk!" At which time a lady in the front row piped up, "Hey fella, that's perfect! Let's switch seats now."
A great communicator's success, to a large degree, comes from an ability to argue with manners and without causing undue fatigue or frustration to those participating.
The level of persistent disagreement around public policy today is disheartening but unlikely to abate. The constant vitriol is creating problems and enormous challenges in our communities – challenges that are disruptive to business, stable government, safety and to civil order. But in...
