Handy Site – Convert Case

I found the Convert Case website  a few months ago and I’ve been back at least once a week ever since.  Why?  At least once a week I have to add something written entirely in upper case to a customer’s website.   If I’m adding text  for an article I use the “sentence case” function.  If […]

Free Tools for Your Website – Check For Broken Links

The Hug-A-Hero doll’s design features the head-to-toe […]

Premium CafePress Shop

I’ve written about CafePress shops before.  They’re fairly easy to set up and it’s one way that website owners can make money online.  The CafePress interface allows you to make a wide variety of products.  There are t-shirts, greeting cards, water bottles, Thermos containers and even thongs.  Too much information?  Sorry.  The point is that […]
