Heartbleed the Virus of the moment!
With the Heartbleed Virus just announced, everyone is freaking out. Well it is a little late now since it has been on the internet for the past 2 years… Changing your passwords is always a good idea. It is just a little late for protecting yourself now… Here is a great Time Article on the subject.
Does this mean that you can’t do business on the internet? No, not at all. The internet is still a safer place to do business than swiping your card in a store. The SSL encryption that the Heartbleed virus attacks isn’t the same encryption that Banks, many stores & credit card companies use. The encryption on my computer program for protecting my information is a 256 rather than the 128 that the SSL is.

The Creation Process is Fun!
I always enjoy working with a client who has the patience & excitement to create with. Barbe is just such a client. I have worked with her on many of her web & book projects & this was a project of simplification as all her projects were getting too spread out.
So we got to start with a clean slate following the premiss that less is better & to make a blog platform for Barbe’s Be Unlimited LLC articles & her Creating Café articles & tie it into her The Creating Formula website. We started with the updated Logo & everything else we created from scratch. Now from my past experience I knew what colors Barbe liked so that gave us a good head start…
So in a few hours we had Barbe’s new site up & running. With a quick refresher course in editing in WordPress, she was ready to go & had her first blog up within hours!

Creating a new site from the old!
It has been several years since I updated my photography site. I wonder where the time goes! Seems just like yesterday when I created my old new look!
What I find fascinating, I get to watch my own artistic growth as I go through these updates. I also get to watch the advancements in technology that seem to come at us at an alarming rate!!! I love them for the most part!!!
I have to thank being in the Shutter Works V Show motivated me to create the upgrade & facelift. I wanted the new look to go with my new work!
Will this new look create more sales? That is a question that will support me in doing a better job for you! I can’t wait to find out!!!
Create a wonderful day!
Okay, done is a misnomer… no website is completely ‘done’. A website is like a house & you are continually tweaking & fixing. Thats what makes it fun!
I think we have created a simple site that shows off Elli’s work and the variety of it. Simple to navigate is a large part of making a site user friendly.
Elli now has a site that she can use as part of her resume & it will be easy for her to update herself so she can keep it current easily. This is a large issue because people did not keep their information sites current if it was hard to do or they had to contact me to do it for them.
Great work Elli & what fun working with you & getting to know your work a little better…

Creating a website for my daughter Elli
I love working with my daughter Elli to support her in her growing career. I think she is one of the best stage designers around not to mention her murals & other creative endeavors she is involved in! I am biased and check out her site to see for yourself!
The site is still in processes. We have the basic layout put together. It is a combination HTML & hosted WordPress. She wanted to keep the theme simple & very monochrome to show off the images of her productions in the best light. Check out what we have come up with so far.
What does that mean?
Compliance means that your business is following the various state & federal laws around running a business in your city or state.
What is ePub?
A Sample eBook Cover
ePubs are your written works formatted for the internet. There are 3 major forms for ePub publications. The general ePub used by most readers is your generic base. Then there is the Kindle format used by Amazon. The third is the Apple Publishing Format used for iBook.
If you are publishing your work, you want to be sure to upload all 3 versions. The Barnes & Noble Nook uses the basic ePub format.
I take your original work, usually in a .doc format & put it into Adobe’s InDesign program. From there I can create the basic ePub & Kindle version. For the Apple version I upload the basic ePub into my Apple Publishing program to convert to the iBook format.
