Hi Everyone!

Wow, Ning has really stepped up their game in the past year! That makes me smile in a big way! I don't think I could ever not love this platform. Well, it was a challenge during their trials and tribulations. But, don't know if it could have been prevented after the first changing of the guard. From everything I have seen in the past year, it's looking like Ning is back full-speed and maybe better than ever.

Just to let you know why I've neglected JenSocial - - I've been…

Message from Ning CEO - January 4, 2017

If you're negative about the Ning platform, I sure can't blame you. You have excellent reasons for feeling this way. But, call me crazy. After the announcement (January 4th, 2017) from the CEO of Ning, I am 100% convinced that Ning will make a complete and total comeback!

Excerpt from Announcement:

I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every Network Creator for your continued support!  On behalf of the entire Ning…

Conversation on Twitter with former Mode Media/CEO, Former CEO of Ning

May 18, 2016

For what it's worth, finally "heard" from someone involved with Ning, the former Ning CEO - - and (just found out today, Former of Mode Media/CEO, as well), Samir Arora. It wasn't much, but great to hear he is listening. Does this mean Ning will improve their communication dialogue with Ning Creators? Who knows? But, maybe, just maybe, they will start listening, or at least tell Ning Creators their plans for the future…

Happy Thanksgiving! What Are You Thankful For This Thanksgiving?

It's almost Thanksgiving!

I don't know how you feel about giving thanks. For me, no matter what life brings, and it can be tough - - I always have many things to be thankful for - - from having the privilege of living in a Country where Freedom is abound (but not free), being thankful that my Sister who was recently diagnosed with leukemia is in remission (more thankful for this than words can express!), thankful for having a…

Memorial Day - What Does It Mean To You?

When I was a child I always thought of Memorial Day as vacation time - - a time for sun, water and fun - - Florida here we come! We'd either pile up in the car and travel as a family, or, if the family didn't have plans to go, once we got old enough we'd cook up our own plans to go with a friend and their family.



There were those special summers that a big Sister would…

Design 101 - On Screen Ruler for Graphic Designer

JR Screen Ruler (For Windows 95/98/2000/NT/ME/XP)

I'm not sure if there's a native MAC version for the on-screen ruler - - doesn't appear to be. This is an old fashioned kind of tool, but still one of my favorites in my Designer Tool Kit.


Recently I lost the hard drive on my main workstation. So, it's taking some time to get the backups restored and everything back in place, especially my Design Tools. Today I missed my awesome…

Design 101, Too Many Fonts - Good Grief!

When it comes to Graphic and Web Design, there's a ton of room for all types of artistic and creative levels, styles, etc... However, there isn't room for a ton of fonts. Some of the wonderful aspects of the vastness of the Internet are: so much to discover, so much for the eyes to see - - so many different designs, and so many different Designers. But, way too often, there are too many fonts starring you in the face.

You still can,...if you believe!

Wow, what a week this has been. It's been one big backfire, problem, slowdown, personal stuff too - - one after another. Tonight would be an easy night to say "Just @#$% it." But, I'll choose the positive route, and will try to spread a little inspiration to the next fellow, like the young Creator of this Video did for me.


So, if you've had a crazy week, take a few minutes to watch this little video. It's very simple, but incredibly inspiring. Take a look. Hopefully it will…

GoDaddy Customer Service

It's not often that I can write a blog post about GREAT customer service, instead of the opposite. For anyone who is ever interested in purchasing domain names or hosting, GoDaddy ROCKS! At least, this has been my ongoing experience.

I purchase a good number of domain names from time to time. I always mark the renewals as manual and not auto-renew. Why? Sometimes I decide I don't want to use or keep the domain name. Maybe I had an idea, and decided not to pursue it. Or maybe after a… Continue
