There is so much knowledge hidden in books that it’s unbelievable that so few people read them. Books are the cheapest form of education that exists. You can even have access to vast amount of knowledge for free if you go to the library. However, there are many publications that don’t teach much or that are nothing more than elaborated infomercial of another product. Especially if you look in the Business and Self Improvement category. That’s why I decided to help you started and make a list of absolute entrepreneurial gems.
Like most of our everyday life, the celebration of the relationship is increasingly present in the digital reality. For many people, wedding day is one of the most anticipated days in their lives. It’s obvious that we want it to be special, beautiful, romantic and memorable. But it’s also a huge challenge in terms of organization, logistics and finances.
Many studies have confirmed that users (your potential clients!) abandon websites if they take too long to load. Nobody likes slow websites and yet some do nothing to speed their own. It’s kinda like everyone says that you should exercise (at least a bit), but few people actually do it – until they are forced to because of their health ;o) The same could happen to the position of your website in search engines, because our beloved Google announced that from July 2018 Google Search will be using page speed as ranking factor for mobile searches. You better not wait until you drop in the search results and speed up your website today.

HTTP/2 is the successor of the elderly HTTP/1 protocol. Elderly, because its last update was in 1997. The new protocol should be – surprise, surprise – better and faster. As usual, opinions are divided if it’s the real new awesome thing, but for ordinary people it doesn’t really matter.

WordPress revisions (previous versions of posts or pages) are very useful. They saved me many times from a mental break. You know, like you write something, and then everything is gone, and the only thing you can do then is scream “NOOOO!”. They are also very useful when collaborating. If several people edit the content and something breaks, you can restore previous version and … know who to blame ;o) But not everyone needs to have dozens or hundreds of revisions stored in database. With many posts database can get really fat from them. Fortunately there is a way to permanently limit them.
