Cybercriminals and Strong Passwords

clip artTechnology is in our lives to stay and so are the cyber criminals.  I try to keep up to date on as much of technology as I can so I read articles on the Kim Komando website.  Today she had an article on strong passwords, and you might be surprised by what she had to say.  Have you heard of “Passphrases”?  They are actually better at keeping you secure.  It really makes a lot of sense.  Read More

Photo Book Designs are digital books, therefore I’m on my computer all the time.  So guess who will be changing to “passphrases”.  Hope you enjoy the article.

Traveling….check this out

I was doing some research today and came across this article.  What an interesting concept.  As we are taking our summer vacations and snapping those pictures (to make a photo book) we can also think of others.  Since most of us don’t own a hotel, why not take an extra plastic bag and every time we leave a hotel we take the soap that we have opened bring it home.  Then send it off to these people for recycle.  What a way to help people and our environment!  I hope you will read the entire article, it is very informative.  Happy Summer….and don’t forget to take lots of pictures, make a digital photo book when you get home, and share it.  If you don’t want to do the work to make a photo book then just contact me.  www.photobookdesigns.com

All your used hotel soap gets melted down here and sent to 3rd world countries
By Marianna Kheyfets

Soap

Have you ever wondered where hotel soap goes after you use it once? Most people would assume it gets tossed in the trash and never give it a second thought. Well, Shawn Seipler isn’t most people. This very random question led him to become one of the biggest global hygiene entrepreneurs in the world.

I did some research and figured out that we are throwing away a million bars of soap every single day out of hotels across the U.S.

captureGraduation time is here again!

It is time to be thinking of a great personalized gift for your special graduate.  Graduation is an important milestone in life’s journey.  Why not show them how far they have come in just a few short years by giving them a photo book of their life this far.  They can enjoy the photos, articles, and adventures that have happened since they came into this world. It is a good way of keeping family and friends close when the graduate leaves the nest and starts the next phase of their life.  This is a one of a kind gift that they will cherish for years to come.

You can make this gift, however when will you have the time?   All you have to do is get the photos and articles to me.  The book will take about a month to create and mail to you (if you are in Lubbock you can pick it up).  Get your photos and articles together now, then call me and schedule a time to talk.

Please check out my website for all the pricing information https://photobookdesigns.com/  There you will find all kinds of interesting ideas and don’t forget Mother’s Day is also coming up soon.  If you reference this article you will receive free scanning on 20 of your paper photos or articles.

Accepting Payments and Selling Online

by barkingdogwebdesigns

If you sell a product or service, you’d be crazy not to at least consider selling online.  For some businesses, this is as simple as using a PayPal button to accept deposits or fees online; for others it means implementing a comprehensive e-commerce platform complete with shopping cart, tax, shipping, and inventory management features.

There are numerous options for processing online payments.  Here I’m going to talk about PayPal, Square, and Weebly …. read more
