K’s Top Five for the Week – November 5

The number fiveSorry for the long absence! As most of you know, I’ve been working on moving my website both to WordPress and to a new domain. I’m happy to report I’m finally finished, and the new site is working beautifully. Plus it’s a dream to maintain and update. Gotta love that!

I’ve really missed blogging over the last couple of weeks, but I’ve still been out checking out the great information other folks are putting out there. So this week I’m back on track with a top five post and next week I’ll be back with some fresh new content as well.

This week’s posts focus on web development myths and maximizing the results your website generates. Hope you find them useful.

Until next week!
