Seriously Beware of Collectibles with Causes / Works of Life

Somebody claiming to be Cameron Arballo from Works of Life called both my wife’s and sister’s places of employment and left threatening messages saying that he knows where she/we/I live, amongst other creepy things. I've never said anything about Mr Arballo. I'd only heard of him in comments other people left in response to the … Continue reading Seriously Beware of Collectibles with Causes / Works of Life

CheapoDrugs.com Database Hacked?

Update: 7/1/2017 If you use CheapoDrugs.com, stop. If you put any faith in the CIPA, stop. Neither of these organizations take cybersecurity seriously. I don't consider them good stewards of your or my personal information. Neither organization will address evidence of a breach. ...The CIPA at least gave me lip service for a while, before … Continue reading CheapoDrugs.com Database Hacked?

#DumpDrumpf

Here's the thing. The Drumpf movement is just making fun of somebody's name that changed when they immigrated to the United States. I have many friends with "weird" names, or whose Americanized/Anglicized names aren't the names their ancestors had a few generations ago. Should we make fun of their names? Are they worth less because … Continue reading #DumpDrumpf

Firing SEO Clients

I've blogged about canning clients before (because of payment and/or privacy problems,) but this recent blog post by Marvin Russell made me want to do it again! I accept up to four clients every year. I don't accept every potential client, and because I have the luxury of excellent word-of-mouth, I seldom respond to RFPs … Continue reading Firing SEO Clients

Reduce Facebook Ads the Supai, Arizona Way

Soylent Facebook

As my name is not Danakin Skyjacker, I was unable to satisfy their idiotic documentation criteria. They closed my account.

Selling my comic books :(

File under boring, self-serving blog posts. After more decades than I care to admit, I'm finally moving to another state and I don't plan to haul my comic books with me. 1,679 comic books spanning more than 60 years.

Looking for the best Hawaii digital marketing agency

Hawaii Destination Marketing SEO and a Beach

I fired a Hawaii marketing agency a couple of months ago. I was not a client. I'd been providing usability and SEO services to their clients since 2007. (Does that mean I quit?) I grew online business for a few of their big-name clients and received decent money for it. Everybody at the agency was … Continue reading Looking for the best Hawaii digital marketing agency
