Website Investments to Make

Are you thinking about creating a blog or website for yourself, or your company? Well, you have come to the right place! Creating a website is a fun and easy way to promote your business online, but it does take a bit of work. Of course, you can go with the bare minimums and not make a ‘fancy’ website, but if you want readers and word of the mouth recommendations, there are a few things that I believe you should invest in to get a return, which means increased traffic, opportunities and sales for you. Check out my list of ways to improve your website and make smart investments:

 

Web hosting and domain name

This is where a lot of first time bloggers and business owners go wrong. You think you are starting a blog to get more readers, but your credibility goes down (a lot) when you do not have your own domain name and do not host it yourself.

We all want to live the idyllic healthy lifestyle when it comes to the food we eat at home, but there’s far more to that than eating all your vegetables and avoiding sugary treats. The very nature of the environment in which you’re cooking has a huge effect on your health when it comes to making your dinner each evening. Here are some healthy tips based on aspects of cooking at home that you may not have considered.

 

The kitchen.

There are lots of obvious factors to consider when keeping your kitchen healthy. Surfaces should be cleaned regularly, and hands should be washed before handling food; you may have to wash them several times during the cooking process if they come into contact with unhygienic parts of your kitchen. Some more specific advice that you may not have considered, however, is to store your food sensibly; don’t keep fatty or greasy foods contained in plastic because you don’t want chemicals to end up in your food. Glass and stainless steel are safer for storage. [Read more…]

Style Your Man: Dos, Dont’s & How To

Style isn’t something you noticed about him when you first started dating.

 

You were more focused on what he was like; if he told good jokes; if you felt comfortable around him.
