Quote: “Work, work, work, that’s all we do. Not fun, but it’s something we have to do for sure. There are things out there that make work easier and even quite possibly a bit more fun in the process. Wrike has what they call a project management app for Android that you can use with your tablet or phone to make it easier for everyone on your team to collaborate on projects that you might be working on. I didn’t know who Wrike was so I visited their site and found out that many big companies rely on their services like Paypal, MTV, Adobe and HTC, just to name a few, so they’re not just a little company.

The app lets you be more mobile and it lets you keep track of the status of projects, and even your team, no matter where you are. It isn’t just for big companies, small companies can use it as well to make life easier and to help get things done to make their business thrive. I’m in process of creating and developing an ecommerce website and, including me, there are only four of us involved in the process, and I’m finding it’s hard to get people to respond to emails. I need things to get it done on my end, but when I don’t get responses in a timely manner I can’t get the work done. There’s a time zone difference, but there also seems to be other issues, like when emails just get lost in the shuffle of everything else. I’m finding that doing this via email might not be the best way to go about it and something like the Wrike project management software might be a better way as it helps keep everything in one place and I think it would help keep people more focused and on task.

So what follows is a quick review or overview really of the Wrike Android app. I should note I haven’t actually used it for a project but I think I’m going to try it out as I do think the app has some great potential… “

OxyLED T-02 Wireless Motion Sensing LED Light Review

New review by me..

Quote: “I review a lot of things, and lights are one of those things I don’t review a lot of in particular, there’s just not many requests for them honestly. I don’t know why as they’re something that we all need and the technology is changing all the time and this should be something that’s noteworthy, or review-worthy. Today for review though I do have a light, it’s from a company called OxyLED and it’s the T-02, yes not a fancy name but it’s something that I’ve come to be very happy with. The T-02 has 10 LEDs in it, and a motion sensor that only turns it on when it notices motion and will stay on as long as there is motion, but then it will turn itself off automatically. The price is about $16, and it’s very well made of mostly aluminum and it runs on AAA batteries which should last for quite sometime. “

I Need A Sponsor for My Site…

tg

So I’m on GoDaddy hosting and when you buy one of their hosting plans they advertise unlimited storage but apparently they’ve taken a page from cellular companies and their unlimited isn’t really unlimited at all.

TestFreaks the Blog closed, they decided to focus on the business to business aspect of things and they basically gave me the blog but I had to change the name and we came up with Technogog, which is fine. To get started I picked a GoDaddy shared hosting account, one of the middle tiers and I upload my site and got a warning that I was running out of resources and so I spent the money and upgraded the server to resource level 3 from the default thinking that might solve my problem. More ram, dual CPU etc and it didn’t fix the issues apparently.

I found out that there’s some fine print I didn’t read, and GoDaddy doesn’t have an asterisk by the ‘unlimited storage’ that they advertise but I found the fine print and I found out that there’s a limit of 250,000 files and folders you can have on the server, which I’m at about 211,000 right now. I called then to see what I can do and the guy I talked to was actually very helpful and I need to move to a new server it seems but I don’t have the money as I’m not making money since the server can’t handle the site now. (decent servers are expensive and at this point in time I would be paying more than I’m actually making and can’t do that) The site crashes every time I post something now, it’s annoying. Having a site and not having it be able to be visited can be a problem when it comes to making any money from it.

Since I don’t have any money to upgrade I wonder how hard it would be to get someone to sponsor my site? I’ve never looked into it but I’ve learned it’s possible.

I was looking into new hosting providers and found that Namecheap actually has a sponsorship program but it says it can take several weeks for them to review the submission. Yeah I get it, they’re busy, but I need a server now so I can actually post content so I can get visitors so I can maybe make some money.

I don’t know, this is just a rambling post I guess, just complaining, but I’m allowed as it’s my site, but as of now I don’t know what to do unless I come into some money.

If I stayed with GoDaddy they have specific WordPress hosting without the files and folders limitations.  Right now they have a special on it for the middle tier of just $9.99 per month, it’s regularly $19.99 per month. So if I had about $120 I could get it for a year but I’m worried as there is a limit of 250,000 monthly visitors. I’m not sure what my exact visitor count per month is right now as I thought a plugin was the issue with the site so I didn’t have Google analytics on for a few days and of course the site being down all the time doesn’t help either. According to the Cpanel metrics on  GoDaddy for the site I got about 190,000 visitors in December and as of yesterday it’s a little over 170,000 visitors. So that middle tier wouldn’t work as it only has a 250,000 limit so I would need the highest level which is on sale for $29.99 per month which is regularly $69.99 per month so I would need at least $360 for a year of hosting to be locked into that price. That level of hosting says ‘millions’ of visitors per month, whatever that means, but it’s better than a 250k limit right?

I wonder if I could get an advertiser or sponsor for this, and it doesn’t have to be GoDaddy hosting of course, that was just an example.

If I could like sell a couple advertising spots for like $500 per year that would be awesome, I could lock in the price and pay for a couple/few years in advance with that GoDaddy WordPress hosting. Any takers?  A nice 300×250 sidebar banner ad?

I don’t know what to do at this point…  blah…
