  • Pushing past “middle of September”: A quick Sitefinity CMS update

    For the past month, our mantra has been “the middle of September.” This was the timeslot when we anticipated opening up the Sitefinity content management system, a key element of the Web Reboot, to campus users. So today is September 22, effectively the end of that squishy period that could be called “the middle.” Here’s how we feel about it...

    Can’t we all just get along?

Hubspot: The Decline of Organic Facebook Reach & How to Outsmart the Algorithm

If you've been managing a Facebook Page over the past few years, you've likely noticed a drop in how many of your fans have been viewing and interacting with your organic posts.

Sitefinity: Update on training, where we are today

This morning we were working with a user new to our CMS, and as we listened to her project needs and were able to rattle off solutions, I caught myself in one of those neat moments of realization.
