Stress Response

Stress Response

The body’s response system is amazing. In the presence of a stressor the body automatically starts to respond to that stressor enabling you to be able to deal with the stressor. The response most recognized for it’s life saving ability is the Fight or Flight response. Your body acts quickly to make sure you can fight off the stressor or run from it. It does this by increasing blood to the brain and muscles while decreasing blood to the skin. It feed more energy to the muscles and tell other perts of you body to not to work so hard. I was recently in a convenient store that ended up getting robbed. The robbery was over in only 3 mins, but when it was over I was breathing hard, sweating and shaking. This was do to my body’s fight or flight response.

The GAS is made up of the Alarm phase, the resistance phase and the Exhaustion phase. In the alarm phase your body releases adrenalin, muscle tension, and increased heart rate and blood pressure. Next is the resistance phase. Your body directs the stress to a specific organ most capable of dealing with the stress. The Exhaustion stage is the disease or malfunction of the organ system and may result in death.

Lets go racing

Lets go racing

My coworker just got invited to be in this exotic car run and what can i say? I am jealous. He had an awesome time and seeing videos ignited the spark I had for racing. Since I was traveling so much I had put my wanna-be racing hobby on the back burner. Now that I am back int he good ole’ USA I want to get get back in to it.

I have renewed my membership in NASA and SCCA. I will start my BMW CCA again soon.
I see that NASA has a HPDE near me in 2 weeks. I am trying to get away from my House project to go run a few laps. I guess we will have to see how many projects I can fit in to a 24 hour day.

I would love to hear from any fellow racers or racer wanna-bes.

The Web Site Overhaul Project – Have unused domains generate some type of revenue.

Since I have so many domains just laying around waiting for me to do something with them, one of my goals was to have them generate some type of revenue. I started by finding and build some sites designed for adsense by using Auto Content Generation. You can read more about this test HERE (Do Auto Content Generation and Auto Link Exchangers Work?). It ended up not really working and I decided my time was better spent on my new sites. You can read What I did with these sites HERE (Auto Content Generation and Auto Link Generation).

Finding a Home
It took me a while to seek out the best hosting plan. I ended up just going with my first choice. I am not here to say who the best host is, but I choose some one with very recognizable name, over great amounts of storage at a medium price point. I found everything that I was looking for in their Business package. It took a while to get set up but everything had been smooth sailing from there.

Making the Move
The Move has been pretty easy since this site (www.Danpereda.com) is the only working site. The other 10 sites were pretty easy to move. I simply logged in to my registrar and pointed my domains to my new name servers. I logged in to my new server and set up all the directories the domains will go to.

There is one site that is going to hard to move and that is this site. Danpereda.com is still on the old (slow) server. There are a lot of issues with this site and I am still contemplating all the changes to be made. I will update this post as I make the changes and move the site. My plans are to set up the blogging/cms system on the new server. Add all the plug-ins to the new system and test out some new plug-ins. I will also probably change the theme and the logo. I will then copy all the content from this site. I will test the new site. Then change the name servers with my registrar. Once all the DNS tables have propagated I will cancel the hosting with this provider.

The Web Site Overhaul Project Next – Moving to a new server.

I currently own 11 domain names. Out of that only one is actually working right now and the others are future projects or past projects that never finished. I have finally decided that I have to do something with these sites. Many of the sites are incomplete due to lack of knowledge and time to be able to complete what is/was necessary. I have one major project in the pipeline. One that I believe in so much that I am not taking a chance. I have eliminated my time/knowledge constraints by paying/outsourcing the work to someone that has the knowledge.

To get ready for this new project I have initiated a massive overhaul of all my web properties. I have my project outline below

Web Site Overhaul Project
Overview: The goals of this project is to do the following:
• Move to a more reliable server
• Have unused domains generate some type of revenue while the overhaul is in progress
• Unify the platforms that the sites Operate on(CMS)
• Build out the 2 main sites.
• Learn and Test new CMS, plugins, and other tools.
• Improve SEO of the main sites
• Build out the secondary (unused) domains.
• Improve SEO of the secondary domains

Next – Moving to a new server.

When is it time to revamp and overhaul your website or sites?

These are some of the questions I recently asked myself;
What is the purpose for my website(s)?
What are my measurable goals for the sites?
Is my site fulfilling its purpose and reaching the goals?
Is my site up to date in both content and technology?
Would a revamp / overhaul improve my the website attaining it’s goals and/or serving it’s purpose?

After looking at the answers to these questions I decided that it was time for a change. Here is my Web Site Overhaul Project
