It's been a while since we've shown our faces and we have a few new ones on the team, so we thought we'd introduce everyone.

First up, meet our fearless leader Karla Fisher!

Our CEO resides in Placitas, New Mexico, but was born in Nova Scotia and raised in Newfoundland.

Fun fact: Even though she grew up near the sea, she doesn't care for shellfish all that much, but will eat white fish and cajun-smothered shrimp.

Karla has two grown sons, and is a proud grandma to one granddaughter with another on the way.

In honor of #WorldBeeDay we thought we'd share a fun blog post with "bee" gift ideas from one of our clients, Little Giant Beekeepers & Bee Removal Specialists.

We think these ideas are great beyond Valentine's Day.

Before adding an image to your website, take a look at the file name. Instead of using a string of numbers that have nothing to do with your website or the page you're building (for example: img87654.jpg), create a descriptive filename that adds context to the text on the page.

Put important words first, then modifiers. For example, if you want to upload a file of a Mister Lincoln rose, you would probably want to name the file "red-rose-lincoln.jpg."

Sometimes in e-commerce, you also need to include the part number or the sku. If that's the case, put that information on the end of the filename like this: my-product-12345.jpg.

And don't forget to include hyphens between each word so that the search engines read them as separate words.

Have you ever wondered how much a website security breach would cost your business? This post will help you answer that question.

10 Compelling Above the Fold Content Examples to Inspire Your Own

What on earth is...? Above the fold. This is a common term in the print world, but how does it relate to websites? It's basically everything that is immediately visible to a visitor - without any scrolling - when they land on your website. The "above the fold" space on your website is valuable real estate so it's important to carefully plan what goes there during the content planning and design phase. https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/above-the-fold
#authenticwebsolutions

With only 15 seconds to engage the average website visitor, designing compelling above the fold content is crucial for making a great first impression, lowering your bounce rate, and retaining attention. Check out some of the best above the fold content examples to get your creative juices flowing.
