  1. I have been meaning to watch The Crown. I've heard good things about it. I generally like shows about the monarchies. The Tudors, The Last Kingdom, etc. I tried watching The Lost Pirate Kingdom last night. I got through one episode. I thought it was going to be something along the lines of Black Sails (which is well worth watching). It was more like a documentary trying to tell the story with bad acting.
  2. I didn't know they were changing any icons.
  3. It doesn't look like the worst movie he has ever made, and it's on Netflix so there is basically zero barrier to watching this. I'll check it out. Netflix really has some deep pockets. I just finished watching the 4th season of The Last Kingdom. Shows like that have to be costing them a small fortune to make and there are quite a few of them.
  4. I find it funny when people complain that they can't hire workers because they are making more money off of unemployment and have no incentive to get a job. Then it is suggested we raise the minimum wage so many of those people would make more money by going back to work and everyone loses their minds.
  5. Decided to a do a video about our project management workflow for SEO and other digital marketing projects. The video features Monday.com, but could be used for just about any project management solution out there.
  6. I review a couple of quick tips for anchor text in link building campaigns. Some of it goes against common beliefs in the SEO community, but stick with it to the end. In the end, I agree with using variations in your anchor text, but for a different reason than is commonly held.
  7. I'm hoping they play a little more on the genius of Bruce Wayne than other movies have. World's greatest detective and all of that. They did a little bit in the Nolan movies, but it was more about him being a tech whizz than anything, imo.
  8. All of that makes sense, and I agree that Snyder was likely a driving force behind the calls for this to happen. He had not made a movie that was universally liked, superhero or not, since what? 300 maybe? I think it would be a mistake for them to jump into a second Justice League movie right now. They should do a few more solo movies first. Maybe Green Lantern, Hawk Man, and anyone else they might want to recruit into the League. These movies could have Darkseid in the background as the ultimate evil pulling many of the strings the way Thanos was in the Marvel movies. Build up to so
  9. In PA, the last few years we have had about 2 weeks of Spring. We seem to go straight from winter to Summer anymore. Either way, I'm done with the cold and snow.
  10. I would have a hard time saying it was on par with Endgame. I can't separate Endgame and look at it as a solo movie while ignoring the 20 or so movies that led up to it. Justice League had a decent Man of Steel movie and a mess of BvS movie leading up to it. I thought it was a shame that they pulled out some of the moments Whedon did that hit. Felt almost petty. Like refusal to admit that he did anything right with the movie. I'm excited for Whedon's Director's Cut of Zack Snyder's Justice League some day. Anyhow, I would say this movie was the best of the recent DCEU movies o
  11. Watched it last night. I was very surprised. I'm not really a fan of Snyder's movies or style. I thought maybe it would be a moderate upgrade over the original. I figured giving him the ability to pretty much do whatever he wanted also had the potential for a serious crash and burn. It's really a much better movie. I still think it is pretty weak compared to what Marvel has been doing, but much better than BvS and on par with Man of Steel. Maybe better. I know the in thing right now is to shit on Joss Whedon, but I don't think it is entirely fair to compare his version with Snyder's.
  12. It's a solid tool. I like Monday.com better, but ClickUp is great too.
  13. https://www.adweek.com/brand-marketing/burger-king-apologizes-and-deletes-tweet-that-said-women-belong-in-the-kitchen/ I get why people didn't like it. I also think people need to chill out a little bit and stop getting upset about every little thing, especially on Twitter. I think they could have gotten the same message across and kept a little bit of the shock value of the Tweet by just adding the word 'too' on the end. Women belong in the kitchen... too. Done.
  14. That sounds like an awful experience. I hope you are recovering well. Feel better soon.
  15. Completely agree. The worst in my mind are the people who want to pitch me their "amazing idea" and have me help them. It always involves me doing all the marketing for them, out of my own pocket, in exchange for 20% of the profits or some other ridiculous number. They fail to realize that the marketing and building the sales process is the hardest and most important part. Also, generally the most expensive. I always counter with an estimate of what it would cost for them to hire me or an offer where I get 90% ownership. Then I ask if I should start working up a finalized quote or start h
  16. I'm not sure how many of you use Elementor Pro or have thought about using it in the future, but if you are considering, you probably want to jump on now. Their pricing plans are changing drastically. https://elementor.com/blog/announcing-new-pro-plans/ I'm in the $199/yr for 1000 sites plan. That plan is being grandfathered in. After March 9, it goes to $999 or you can get a plan for $499 for 100 sites. That is a drastic price increase. They are also adding some other plans. Not sure what they are thinking. I think agencies that are not currently onboar
  17. I don't believe you. I'm going to need to see some testing on that. Any volunteers?
  18. And if you had done the honorable thing 10 years ago, she would have had $1 million, which today in the same fund would be worth about $1.5 million. So there is also that.
  19. I'm actually in the process of moving to Monday.com. I had moved away to something else from ClickUp. ClickUp is great, but some of my clients found it too advanced and confusing. One thing about ClickUp that people either love or they hate is that they are constantly launching new features. I mean constantly. I think it is great that they are innovating, but at the same time it is tough to keep up with everything they are doing.
  20. Hey I am working on a new video series called SEO #Shorts. In each video, I take an SEO topic and cover it in 60 seconds or less. In the first one I cover a few URL best practices. And in the second, I talk about a few common myths around link building. Enjoy
  21. So if you are reading this thread, you have people who depend on you, and you have not done it yet, get yourself a quote on some term life insurance. It's not that expensive to make sure the people you leave behind will not be wondering how they are going to make ends meet. If you have no dependents, screw it. Do whatever you want with your money.
