Why Data Portability is Important

The Importance of Data Portability

Your data, your code, your progress belongs to you – you have worked too hard, and, in a lot of cases, paid too much money to allow a company to own your hard earned progress. Don’t get locked in by a company who does not have your best interests at heart.

COO, What is a COO, Chief Operating Officer, Operations, Digital Services

Operating in Operations

As the Chief Operating Officer (COO) at WebDevStudios, I’m often asked about my role and how Operations get defined in a digital services company. Recently, I have engaged in conversations that made me realize that everyone has different perspectives on what defines Operations in a business, and even whether or not a company needs a COO as part of the C-Suite, executive team.

Pain Makes People Desperate

Pain desperation is a thing. Pain is an epidemic in this country, as much as opioids are. Chronic pain sufferers cannot get the pain relief they so desperately need. More and more, I ask the question: What’s worse? Addiction or pain. I don’t have the answers.

Lisa Sabin-Wilson Brain Dumping

When I Get Overwhelmed, I Take a Dump. A Brain Dump.

Begin at the beginning…. solve those first big steps and a plan begins to take place, things begin to take shape and pretty soon, relief. Here are some methods that I find most effective when faced with some insurmountable task that contains a million different pieces, and I would love if you would share yours.

20 books in 2020

Bookworm. 20 in 20

I don’t often make a lot of new year resolutions – but I have made one for 2020 and it’s a personal one of reading 20 books. That goal is not a stretch for me, but I want to be realistic. Life sometimes gets in the way of being able to sit in a comfy chair and get lost in a good book.

Five Years Ago

Half a decade ago, I took this website down with the intention to cull some of the archives – – keep items I thought were important to me and lose the rest, and then redesign it and relaunch it.

I always got stalled and distracted by other things.

Blog World Expo 2010

Blog World Expo '10 – WordPress For Dummies Book Signing

In October, I am flying to Las Vegas for the annual Blog World & New Media Expo, and am pretty excited about it.  Aside from the fact that I love Vegas (read: I adore Blackjack) – I get the opportunity to catch up with some old friends, make new ones and spend some quality time with my husband, who does not always get to accompany me to my travels across the country!

From what I understand, Savannah has a young WordPress community full of true beginners and people just getting started with WordPress.

WordPress Web Design For Dummies

Continuing along with my line of WordPress-themed books, I am currently working on adding a new title to my WordPress arsenal: WordPress Web Design For Dummies (published by Wiley Publishing: For Dummies division). WordPress Web Design For Dummies will focus completely on designing web sites with WordPress.
