Coffee Cup’s Sitemapper, almost perfect for my needs.

I have enjoyed some of the Coffee Cup tools over the past few years.  I started using their Sitemapper tool when it first came out and have enjoyed how it works with the search engines.  It's handy, easy to use and easy to configure.

Recently I added a new client to my routine.  This is where this review goes awry.

GoDaddy’s QuickBlog Cast USELESS if you want to get marketing info.

Did you know that blogs are the new journal, so I'm told by the rocket scientist and social media expert at GoDaddy.  I took over a client's account over a year ago. In place were every GoDaddy tool available:  email marketing, quick cart, quick blog.  I'm really OK with Godaddy on domain issues and mail, but when it comes to blogs and carts, as Mickey McBride would say at the end of his parties, "GO HOME!"

THAT ZING YOU DO: A Shortcut to Clarity About Your Purpose and Context
Tonight, our WEO members had a mini-workshop over a fabulous dinner at Kell's downtown.  She opened with an example of two oranges – one out in the open and one in a bag – pretending to be a bag.  Pretty tough.  The orange that was out in the open knew it was an orange…. it was able to — CONCENTRATE (get it, orange – concentrate) on being JUICY – that's its talent, what it is all the way through.

Review of MURA CMS and FCKEditor

Sc_cbtechinc I launched a site this morning.It is a site that I created with CBTechInc’s taff using a CMS of their choice: Mura. It’s a PHP/MySQL/Cold Fusion based system that is free. I like most of the software.
The WYSIWYG editor needs some tweaking. Mura incorporates FCKEditor and it has known bugs that no one seems to fix. The FCK Editor issues lie in the fact it removes code, adds in

tags where you didn’t ask for them and makes other decisiosn for you. It is also lacking an image resizer tool, so the end user clients have to either resize their images using Photoshop Elements or similiar or loading HUGE images and squishing them down to distortion, killing the load time of a page.
