Beat The Blues On Blue Monday

Word on the web these days is that Blue Monday is today, January 18th. What’s Blue Monday you say? We asked the same thing. It’s supposedly the most depressing day of the year because you probably have already failed your New Years Resolutions, all of your Christmas bills have come due and the weather is dreadful. But have no fear! We have the solutions so that your Blue Monday is bursting with yellow happies, bright sunshine, little singing birds, and unicorns running through bright green meadows. Here. We. Go.

Award show season is upon us! The Golden Globes were last weekend, the Grammys are on Feb 15th, the Academy Awards debut at the end of February on the 28th, and Birmingham’s local award show, the Addys, are just around the corner on February 26th.

Coach Infomedia: Get Fit For 2016

The new year is here, so it’s out with the old and in with the new! It’s the time when everyone sits cozied up on those first few chilly mornings of January and plans out how they anticipate the year to go. It’s the week of reflection, of strategy, resolution, and of reinvention.

We can assure you that your site won’t run around the proverbial Google block all by itself.

Naughty or Nice: See What Tops the List This Year for Tech

In two short days Santa will make his annual Christmas rounds and our homes will be filled with holy jollies and sweet smiles from the magic of Christmas. Santa’s been watching all year.

Introverts Rejoice: Order Food without Human Interaction

With everyone rushing around buying gifts, working overtime, and traveling, making time for lunch can be a hassle. While mobile apps help us shop for gifts and order car service (*slow clap for Uber in the Ham y’all*), don’t forget the time-saving restaurant apps. So when you simply don’t have the energy to cook or can’t bear […]

The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year! The season of lists, presents, cheer, Santas, elves, office Christmas parties, and overtime hours.The days are long and the nights are short, but you show up to work bleary eyed another day because how else will Santa EVER deliver all of the gifts under the Christmas tree otherwise? We get it, we do, but we have a few holiday ideas so you can put your website and the Internet as a whole to work and have yourself a merry little Christmas after all.

Ensure a “W” For Your Website Using Saban’s Playbook

Sir Nicholas Saban knows what he’s doing as a coach. He’s had top recruiting classes for years, his team nearly always takes the SEC Championship (or plays in it at the very least), his team is disciplined, his players work hard at every practice and play hard in every game, and his tactics seem to be perfected — and we think you can take a few plays out of Saban’s playbook and come up with some great new techniques for your website.

Spooks, Kooks, and Hilarious Costumes – Halloween 2015

We know it’s a day early, but since we aren’t in the office on Saturdays we all dressed up for some super snazzy Halloween shenanigans today! The competition was fierce, and the judges deliberated longer than any other year before (which is how you know the costumes were extra awesome this year.) We had individual […]

10 Things Halloween Teaches Us about Blogging

During this Halloween season of creepy costumes and scary stories, we’re all focused on trick-or-treating and dressing up, and paying a little less attention to our blog posts. Well, maybe it’s just the candy-corn sugar rush talking, but I think the spooks of the season may have a thing or two to teach us about […]

October in Birmingham…THINK PINK!

October is breast cancer awareness month! For many years, a diagnosis of breast cancer meant 4 out of 5 of those women would lose their battle, but with dedicated community involvement, passionate friends and families, and strategic fundraising, available treatments now mean that a diagnosis of breast cancer means that 4 out of 5 women WIN their battle and can tell their stories as survivors.

Gmail Saves the Day…With Unsend Options

Your chest tightens as you feel your pulse move into your throat, while the sweat beads across your forehead. You stare frozen in panic, your finger hovering above your mouse. “Your message has been sent” hangs at the top of your screen. The email you meant to send to your good friend down the hall […]

How We’re Keeping Cool This Summer

It’s here again, the most wonderful time of the year if you’re an ice-cream man or a gnat. The rest of us are miserable and picturing how we’d look if we buzzed all our hair off. Even the women. With that in mind, here are the four ways we’re beating the heat this summer. 1) […]

Why We’re So Gosh Darn Happy

A few days ago I was browsing Fortune.com, checking out the point indexes on my mutual stocks and chatting with my financial advisor, Ira Roth. Or trying to anyway. I get the feeling he doesn’t respect me as much as his clients 59.5 and older. It was there that I came across the following article: […]
