Stacia Kennedy in NW Asian Weekly Mother’s Day Article

I was just googlin around and came across this Mother’s Day article from Northwest Asian Weekly.  My beautiful wife was quoted about her experience as being a young single mother after the birth of Makaya.

Happy Mother's Day 2017 from Northwest Asian Weekly

It’s also interesting to note that my mother’s friend and former co-worker Akemi was also featured in the article.

She’s always been an extremely hard worker and done her best to make a good life for her son – as well as for Ava Kalea and I.  She’s done well and I am very proud of her.

So Very Thankful on Thanksgiving

I have taken up the daily habit of living with sincere gratitude for each and every day I wake up.  Thankfully, so far, I’ve waken up on this side of the dirt each and every day.  It sure beats the alternative.

There are so many things for me to be thankful for, but the most important things are not things, but people.

Moving to SiteGround from HostGator: JoeKennedy.biz

Yesterday, I moved this site from hosting with Hostgator to more reliable webhosting with SiteGround.  I wrote an entire post about it, but apparently that was before the new settings could propagate, so that post is stuck with the old files and not worth the hassle of recovering.

Web Hosting

SiteGround has proven to be a much more reliable hosting company for my other sites – and their service is 2nd to none!  I really like that I can chat with someone in their tech department 24/7 and they are always so cheerfully helpful.  They know their sh*t!

This is my first post here at JoeKennedy.biz using the new Gutenberg editor.  It seems like it is a lot like the Headway theme that I’ve been using on many of my sites for years – so I’m kind of excited about it.

I’m also excited about my new mission to combine all of my many websites into just one site – THIS site.  It seems like it could become just a very jumbled mess, but I am thinking and hoping that it will allow me to begin focusing on just one web property to worry about.  Fewer emails and notifications to deal with for sure.

Lots of different topics and domains to integrate, but it will be a challenge to do it with some kind of clarity and I am looking forward to it.  As I tried to explain to my wife, having so many different websites to work on and maintain often seems impossible and causes paralysis.  Having one main website and internet property to play with will make it more fun – and I’m sure that I will be much better at creating new and interesting content.  

I hope you will follow along.

Social Media Sharing Of Vacation Photos- Dangerous

Social media sharing while traveling can make that person a target of thieves, according to experts.

These days, many burglars use social media to find out if someone’s home is empty – and people tend to leave their homes empty especially during the summer vacation.

Social MediaSocial Media Sharing Of Vacation Photos-Dangerous

While social media users know they shouldn’t share their home address, current location or phone number on Facebook, many of them still share vacation photos or social plans. Information such as vacation photos or social plans look more innocent to share, and potential threats tend to be overlooked.

“Although it’s fun to post vacation photos and let everyone know you’re having a cocktail on a sunny beach, that sends a clear signal to burglars that your home is empty,” said Ruby Gonzalez, Communications Director of NordVPN. “Even the people who feel sufficiently educated about online privacy still reveal their personal details online. Millennials especially tend to post their travel plans as well as travel photos.” Continue reading “Social Media Sharing Of Vacation Photos- Dangerous”
