Case Study: Ricardo Serpa

Website Background

RicardoSerpa.com is a website dedicated to the photographic work and professional blog of Ricardo Serpa. Serpa first began his career in photography over 25 years ago when he left his day job as an export manager in Brazil to chase his true passion, photography. He became a photojournalist at Jornal Do Brasil, a Brazilian newspaper, where he worked for three years before deciding to pursue photography on his own terms.

Serpa knew that as an independent photojournalist he needed a way to share his photography portfolio, so he created RicardoSerpa.com. The website allows Serpa to share his photo galleries of trips he has made around the world, stay in touch with his audience, and provide information on his new endeavors such as teaching. “My website is the single most important aspect of my life as a professional photographer. It is my window to the world; my own way of showcasing my work and promoting my travels.” Without his website, Serpa would not be able to reach and interact with his audience the way he is able to now.

WordCamp Columbus 2016

I recently found myself in Columbus, Ohio for another amazing WordCamp. #WCCBUS had a wide variety of speakers, topics and attendees and also offered a full day workshop on Friday.

It was held at the Columbus State Conference Center. This turned out to be the perfect location. The main hall and the breakout rooms were all close enough together but emptied into another main room allowing attendees a chance to meet and interact.

WordPress and the Dark Side of Defacements

A special thank you to Yvonne Conway-Williams for her time and participation in the interview for this article.

At a recent WordCamp, I met Yvonne Conway-Williams, a social media marketing expert and front-end web developer. She approached our sponsor booth inquiring about website security. That’s when she said; “I wish I had found SiteLock two years earlier.” Struck by the comment, I asked her what had happened. Conway-Williams shared that on January 30, 2015, she and her husband returned home from a long day to find her client’s website, a local car club, defaced. Instead of her client’s homepage, the website featured a front page promoting and recruiting for ISIS, the terrorist organization.
