Because your web host is your partner in on-line success. Look, there are lots of options available when you start shopping around for web hosting services. You can go with a free hosting site. Only problem is those freebie hosting services make their money by placing their ads on YOUR website. And you have no control over what ads appear on your site.
So, to fend off attacks from hackers, crackers, script-kiddies and other bad guys, your web-host-web-partner maintains a hard-wired firewall, firewall software that’s updated regularly, anti-virus software that protects your business assets and anti-spyware software that keeps key-loggers at bay, protecting your on-line business.
I am not buying an argument that $1,200 will be an unbearable burden to US businesses. The credit is on the order of annual salary raise. Median income per US household member  is about $27,000, thus CR represents only 4.4% of it. After all, according to David C. Johnston “Free Lunch” , US corporate management owes us the salary rise since mid 70s, so please, be kind and give it us once in 30 years, thus indicating your participation in our mutual struggle with the rising fuel cost and inflation, Global Warming, pollution, you name it.
The fact that the next-generation processor N550 1.5 GHz low power consumption should be noted in two, and suffice it to say, the days are in danger of single-core processor N450 type. 1215P Asus netbook announced that the N550 is equipped with a cable, but not the technology ION2 Nvidia, and it is only on Intel GMA3150 graphics, TheBritishHerald, more and more obsolete the use independently based. 1215P is designed to update their unwanted 1201PN, and if you have a good battery life, difficulty in coping with gaming and multimedia with 1080p HD.
This is why I recommend a website over a blog. Blogging can be profitable, but building a website is a much better investment of your time. Blogs are very demanding on your time since blog readers expect to see new material on the blog on a regular schedule. Also, blogs are time sensitive and the newest entry is read, and the older entries are forgotten. On a website, the content is ageless. The reader can go to any page and read it without knowing whether it was written a year ago or yesterday. As a WAHM, invest your time in a website versus a blog.
Well, we are not making much progress in telecommuting field. Good old UK was doing much better back in 2002 with telecommuting rate of 7.4% . Another question is what is the percentage of workers who can telecommute without negatively impacting the business process? I did not try Google to find an answer to such a sophisticated question. What I see from my personal experience of IT professional, at least 50% of office work can be done at home. At my consulting job, I see some of my colleagues once in two weeks, if I walk by. Otherwise, I do my work glued to my computer monitor, exchanging information via email and internal chat system. We do remote conferencing and project management. I do it in the same way as many of you do every day.
We’re just chasing the wrong rabbit on the wrong track. That paradigm is broken. The next time you have an opportunity to participate in an exercise like the one I just described, don’t. Develop your own specs and persona for the type of customers you want to develop. You know, the ones you do your best work for. Spend your time and expertise on them, instead. And stop beating yourself up about the “other” ones that get away.
