As a webmaster it is easy to be carried away and start adding many elements to our websites. No wonder that after some time we might have so many unnecessary elements on our homepage, that our site will load significantly slower because of this. If that happens, it means that we should do something about it. Let us take a look at a few things that we do not really need:
• Badges of blog directories and top sites can create a clutter, but often do not provide a real benefit. Try not to have more than a few badges or even try to remove them completely. Do it especially if you are not required to put them in the first place. There are some directories that will not ask you to put a link to them, or will never ask you to put their badge on your blog. You may want to stay listed in such directories. Keep that in mind that having too many badges will make your site load slower.
• WordPress blogs can remove the meta data that contains the admin links. It does not benefit the readers at all.
• Calendars are only useful on some blogs, where the timing of posts is very important. If in case of your blog it is not that important, then do not bother to have a calendar on your blog. It will only slow your website down.
AutoComplete is a quite useful tool in Firefox that allows your browser to remember what you enter in forms. For example, you may want Firefox to remember your personal details such as name, address and email, so that you do not have to type it each time. This can save you a lot of time, especially if you fill out various forms on a daily basis. This feature is great and I use it a lot, but there are also some potential problems. One of them is when you misspell some important information such as email. Next time when you will try to enter your email, Firefox will suggest this misspelled email. That is why when you make such a mistake it is important to erase the saved form data.
You can do that by going to Tools -> Options -> Privacy and clicking Clear Now. Just make sure you indicate what you want to clear. Of course, if you had any other information stored, it will also be deleted. That is why you should only use this feature when you are absolutely certain you want to do it. You should be especially careful if you have been using Firefox for many months, and possibly have a lot of personal details stored. Once you press Clear Now, all of them will be lost. Anyway, I believe that AutoComplete is a very useful feature, and I recommend that you take advantage out of it.
What is great about the Internet is that it can be used for a variety of purposes. People connect to the Internet to browse millions of different sites, but overall some types of sites are more popular than others.
-The most popular websites are search engines. They allow us to find what we are looking for. They will probably remain to be the most popular for quite some time.
-Many people like visiting social websites that offer interaction between people. This includes chat websites and social networking websites.
-Sites that allow us to downloading files can be useful. A good example are sites dedicated to Rapidshare.
-Web portals offering news are something that most people visit. Reading news on such websites does not cost anything and that is why so many people like doing it.
-Websites hosting various games are also popular. They allow players to be entertained and to have some fun.
-Sites featuring useful information in a form of articles or videos are also being visited by many people.
There are many types of blogs on the Internet. There are also many topics to write about. Some bloggers write about a variety of different topics, while others decide that they want to be portrayed as experts in only one field. I think that each decision has its advantages and drawbacks. One of the advantages of writing about only one topic is that it is a lot easier to be good at it. Eventually, you might be even recognized as an expert in your field if you will be really good at what you do. That can be especially the case if you put a lot of work into writing articles. On the other hand, writing about only one topic might get a bit boring after a while. This might be true if it is a niche in which there are not many interesting things happening. If that is the case, then you will be forced to write about some other topics anyway.
There is no clear rule what to do, and nobody is going to make you write about any particular topic. That is why you should remember to choose a niche that is of interest to you so that you would be motivated to write posts. There is no bigger mistake a blogger can make than choosing a topic of his blog that he doesn’t even like.

If you are anything like me you might spend a lot of time visiting various websites. Have you ever been in a situation where your Google search led you to a website but after entering this website you noticed loads of information and did not know where to look for specific knowledge that you so desired? By activating the search option in Internet Explorer you can easily find on a website what you are looking for. Here is how you can do it:
From the top bar choose “Edit” and then go to “Find” or just press Ctrl+F. This will open a small window for you. In this window type a word or words that you are looking for. Press “Find Next”. You will be automatically directed to a place where the desired word or words are located. Repeat the process whenever it is necessary.
I have to admit that this feature is one of my favorites and once you learn to use it effectively, it will save you a lot of time.
It seems that everybody has a blog these days. Blogging became an important part of our lives. People blog because they want to communicate their thoughts, promote their company, or simply devote themselves to the art of writing. You might think that starting a blog is difficult or almost impossible. However, it is very far from being true. You might be a little intimidated by the unknown in the beginning, but you will soon discover that blogging is something that you can do very easily. If you would like to start a blog today, follow these easy steps.
-Choose a blog platform. Deciding on which blog platform you are going to start your blog should be your first step you are going to take. If you are a beginner and you are about to start your first blog, I recommend that you decide to start a free blog so that you will not have to pay anything. Websites such as Blogger.com or WordPress.com will be the first blogging platforms you may want to visit. A few other platforms are available to bloggers free of charge, but Blogger and WordPress are the most popular.
Before you decide to start a blog that will be authored by a few people, take some time and ask yourself a few questions. Some of those questions can be like that: Do I know the bloggers that I am going to share my blog with and allow them to create posts for me? Are they my friends? Can I truly trust them that they will not post that will embarrass me? Do they have the same blogging standards as I do? Do they have similar interests as I do? Is their writing style compatible with my style?
There are definitely some disadvantages of having a few authors of one blog. There are a few reasons this happens:
1. Multiple bloggers will have to work with each other, which can often be challenging as it might be sometimes extremely hard to coordinate the work of a few people at the same time who might not even know one another in person. Striving to maintain high quality of posts, and taking responsibility for others at the same time are some aspects that will have to be taken into account here.
2. One of the disadvantages of having a few authors of one blog is that the authors might not be able to work with each other that easily and that they might have completely different goals in mind.
3. The next point to discuss is responsibility. If something goes wrong, who is to blame? If you have co-authors of a blog, you might end up taking responsibility for the actions of other bloggers even if you are not the one to blame for the whole situation, but somebody else is.
4. Any potential profit you make from your blog will be divided among a few people instead of just you taking advantage of it.
5. A blog might lose its personal character if a few people write posts for it at the same time.
6. Readers might not be sure who to address in case of questions and suggestions. This can cause embarrassing situations and it can turn some people off.
7. It is hard to coordinate the work of a few people, especially if they are not physically in one place.
Having a blog co-authored by a few people, no matter how passionate about writing they are, can be quite challenging. It can cause potential problems including insufficient communication and lack of regular updates.
If you have ever tried to start an online business, you might have discovered that your college degree is of little use to you. Other things matter on the Internet such as experience, knowledge, skills, and attitude of those who want to start an online business. I am not saying that things you have learned in college are completely useless. On the contrary, they might help you understand some things a lot faster.
Before you set up an online business, remember to have the right attitude. Positive attitude is very important. Remember not to expect results immediately. Instead, be patient and try to find out what type of online business would suit you the most. Various search engines may help you make the right choice. You can also read success stories written by other online entrepreneurs in which they tell how they achieved success with their businesses. Remember that you cannot achieve success without a proper mindset.
If you plan on having many visitors to your blog, then you should definitely enable search on your website. If your blogging platform does not offer this feature by default, you may want to add a widget that will be able to do so. You can add such a search option by registering yourself at Technorati and claiming your blog there. I think that allowing search on your blog is especially important if your blog has many posts and otherwise it would be difficult for your readers to find specific articles. Adding various categories may help your readers to find relevant articles; however, the best way to find a specific post is by using a search tool.
