Confuse the search engines

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

I like to confuse the search engines. They don't need to know everything about me, or about you either. There are plenty of tactics you can use to make it harder for search engines to build up a profile on you. One is to use more than one browser, and a different search engine on each. For example, I'll use the Google search engine on the Chrome browser, which I only rarely use anyway. But the mai... » Continue Reading

Picking a good username

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

I sometimes find it hard to choose a good username, whether it's for social media, gaming, or some other purpose. It's not always easy to come up with something neutral on the spot. One tactic I have is to pick a 2-word username, and keep one of the words the same across my different accounts, and the other word can change. This makes it easy for me to keep track of my usernames as there is a cohe... » Continue Reading

Inspirational quotes

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

I like inspirational quotes quite a bit. Not enough to put up on my walls IRL, but I like them scattered throughout Twitter or other social media, for example. In a world where there is so much animosity and strife and political arguing, it's nice to know that there are quotes for people who just want to keep moving forward and not get distracted by negativity. My favorite places for quotes are: B... » Continue Reading

Some things I do are: Generic photo/image from a free stock photo site such as Pixabay Good morning or good evening tweet Retweet someone else's good morning or good evening tweet If tweeting something business-related, using a free tweet generator Tweet what book I'm currently reading Tweet what food I last ate Ultimately I try to minimize the... » Continue Reading

Tech tools I use

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

I decided to bookmark some of the tech tools I like and use. Colors HTML colors - Alphabetical list of the HTML colors , or sorted by color group , which is slightly more useful for me. W3CSS colors - There are so few W3CSS colors in total that it doesn't matter that they're not sorted by color group. Even with the above colors, I feel like there is a need for more colors in general. I often find ... » Continue Reading
