Website Development

That's a big subject. It's also what I enjoy doing most. I am a creative person. Photography, Videography and Webdesign are my key interest followed by music which I present through my Cue80sMusic website.

It's personal! It's a lot to talk about so I think it will have a page of it's own. Plus the Blog I want to build.

Search Engine Optimisation

Nothing here would be no good for SEO would it. I mean, little or no content doesn't say Visit Me!

More...

Web crawlers will only take an interest in my site if I have useful content. I may not want web crawlers to rank my website highly. I must just direct people here through business cards, email and word of mouth.

Now I do plan on adding content that is useful, well, useful to me. You! That's not my sites purpose.

I'm using it to gather and order content that is useful to me from anywhere, with or without my PC. For example. I may have an Animation project in hand, and so I may write about the tasks I have to do here. Very likely I will write about it on my Blog which is to get started over the next couple of days, only because search engines like Blogs as they suggest regular and up to date content. That's not always the case though.

Search engines to like WordPress in particularl so I should use it.

I watch a lot of YouTube videos and I don't like all the Ads, some are useful but many are just a disturbance in my watching and learning. So I use the embed function to place those Videos on my sites pages, but not as though you have to search pages and pages of videos. I use the iframe function in HTML along with the Target and Name property to fire those videos at the iframe for watching. I started doing that on websites back in 2013 but many have followed my examples, even using the Table function that I have used in my Cue80sMusic website. Incidentally that's a website I created to help me learn and develop my web development skills.

I started learning to code back in 1987. At that time I was working with SQL as a RDBMS administrator and an analyst. I also have a creative side so I enjoy the creativity aspects of web development. I also trained as a Professional Photographer in the 70's but moved away and in to IT in the 80's. I still enjoy my photography and I now also create videos and have more recently started producing my own using a variety of software. Now I don't want to bore you and I have plenty to do so juts browse. Hopefully search engines will like this little bit of content. And I will revisit the subject on a regular basis so content on the site in regard to SEO wil grow. I have lots to do! Phil Donnelly.Wikipedia SEO

Stay Safe online

With thousands and even millions of people now using home computers and mobiles for online shopping, work and home schooling what should you do to stay safe onlin

More...

I will be adding to this over the next few days. Important points are Passwords, Never Give ANYONE your PIN or Password Details for anything Finanacial, Keep Software and Applications up to date, this includes checking your phone for updates. If you're happy to have 3rd party software on your PC to protect you then do. Don't use public wifi for any legth or time, go in check your balance and log out again, you may have to use public networks to block a bank card for example if it's lost so there are occasions where you will need to use it. Regularly change passwords and think about using a Password locker. More detail to come.

Shop Online with Confidence.

So who's been able to visit a shop to do the shopping they desire, the clothes, the bags and the shoes. It's been tough this year, shops closing down, famouse name shops closed as never before and with a lot more time on our hands than we normally have we've taken to shopping online

More...

I use Amazon to sell products and used items. You can too. But how do you know if an independent website selling shoes will honor your purchase. Well, the first thing to check is the payment methods, then secondly you want to know where the business is based. You want to know if the business sells brands you recognise and look at customer feedback first. If you are given a sign up option then do it but use a secondary email address you can use simply for shopping, not your primary email. I always recommended Google for that purpose......updating article 06/01/21.

You can shop with Confidence using this link to Amazon and it helps me too. Follow the Amazon Link.

Selecting the right PC?

IMAC Voted Best Video PC. But there are always alternatives.

See the best PC's for Video HERE and Apple DO have serious competition at half the price and less.

You would be amazed at how many people buy the wrong machine. It's not always the most expensive one you need. I have a laptop PC that is still good after 10 years! Yes, 10 YEARS. I've seen many buy at least their second PC in that time. Call me!

Video Production

Here is a simple video using a music sound track and the linked to images to create this MP4 Video. It will play music so before you play the video check the volume. Images do change within the first minute or so.
This video runs from the web page hosting server.

For upload shortly

Also this video I recently posted to YouTube





Cue80sMusic

If you like music, especially 80s pop plus much more then visit another site I created as an excercise in website production, this one is called Cue80smusic.net

Fun Stuff and Serious Stuff.

Now my new site is live I will be adding more content including Fun Stuff.
Interactive fun stuff around the site. Just little things to show you just what can be done with a web page. The Clock for instance was created using JavaScript and though I entered the code for this myself I wouldn't be able to do it without learning from others.

CSS3 Animation example here -
