Is your partner treating you poorly? Is the connection you once had no longer there. Does your partner let you know what’s wrong in the relationship or is the communication gone? Do you see your relationship going anywhere? Does it still have room to grow? Has the trust between you broken down to the point where you know it’s over? If your answer to the previous questions is yes then it’s time to break up with your web host.
The following guest post is from Randall McCarley of 14th Colony
With Steven on vacation I thought I’d take advantage of this chance to conquer his website!
Or at least contribute a post.
Of all the edges I know of, embracing amazing design is the easiest, the fastest and the one with the most assured return on investment.

Looks matter. We don’t always want to face it, but it’s true. People will make judgments about the quality inside based on looks alone. A pretty package gets more attention every time. So how can you make your posts more attractive to help guarantee they get read?
A couple months ago I pointed you to a list of 100 free css resources that Rich McIver had sent me. Rich sent me another list not too long after with 100 free web design resources. I’m finally getting a chance to link to it and once again there’s a lot to like.
A couple of weeks ago Darren Rowse asked readers should (external) links open in a new window?. Actually Darren had been asked by one of his readers and Darren was smart enough to know the question would make for a good blog post so he asked the rest of us. Today he read through all the comments and posted the results and surprisingly ProBlogger readers preferred to have a new window 54% to 45%. Surprising, because I think this is one of the worst things a site can do.
