Make Sure You Look in the Right Place

One of the most important things to consider when looking for something online is whether to use a search engine to help you find something, or whether to go directly to a particular URL. Sometimes going to a specific URL that you are guessing at may end up giving you poor results, sometimes a search engine gives you poor results. What is a poor confused Internet user to do? I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have typed in something I am looking for in Google’s search engine and the results were absolutely totally irrelevant to what I was looking for! Frustrated? You bet! And one time, a well-meaning friend gave me the URL of GC.com to click on, expecting it to take me to a website that sells musical instruments, but when I clicked on the link it went to a website about scorekeeping for sports teams! Why does Internet searching have to be so complicated sometimes?

Strange Holiday

What a strange holiday Columbus Day is! Some people have the day off of work, or school, and some don’t. Some stores have sales, other stores don’t. There is a lot of controversy over whether Columbus even discovered America or not! Whether you had to work, or go to school, or had the day off, I hope it is a good day for you!

Sore Toe

All summer I’ve been wearing sandals and flip flops. I don’t think I had to wear regular closed toe shoes since March! but it has started to get cold and it’s been so rainy that I decided to wear a pair of pumps to work.

For some reason my little toe on my left foot is just throbbing. I think it might be from wearing the closed toe shoes. My feet are not used to being squeezed in. So after wearing the shoes all day my little toe is really sore. It is amazing how much a toe can hurt!

Redirects Are A Good Tool To Use For Websites

A few days ago my sister was telling me that she was thinking about creating a website, but she couldn’t decide what name she wanted to use. She was torn between a couple of different names, and a couple of different suffixes. I suggested that maybe she would want to go ahead and buy all of the domains and have them “re-direct” to just one name, and then she would just maintain that one website. She didn’t understand what I meant, so I explained that if she went online and typed in “www.musician.com” she would automatically be redirected to a different website. I explained that is something that can be done by the techs at GoDaddy when she sets it all up. I hope she takes my advice!
