Ask Alex the Intern! Round I
Over the last month or two, we’ve gotten to know Alex the Intern pretty darn well. Here are a few things we’ve noticed…
- He’s very responsible. If he’s running even two minutes late (to his internship that has no solid start time), he’ll call the office to fill us in then walk through the door only 30 seconds after we’ve hung up the phone and apologize for being late.
- He hates chairs. At least, that’s all I can assume since there are two chairs and two stools within 6 steps of where he sits every day and he still insists on sitting on the floor.
- He’s a good kid. Any senior that wants to hang out at our office several days a week and actually enjoys it has to be a good kid. Not that John and I aren’t nice guys, but to a senior in high school, I’m sure we’re less than ideal to hang out with. We’re like the human version of Star 94 or any other bad morning drive radio: adults like us and think we’re fun and even sometimes funny but their high school kids just roll their eyes at them and wonder how they could possibly enjoy us. Especially since we don’t even give away free concert tickets.
But now it’s time for YOU to get to know Alex the Intern a little better too! We sent him some questions and told him he had to answer them or his next intern assignment would be dressing up like the archer in our logo and standing in front of the office waving a sign. Here it is; our first round of “Ask Alex the Intern!” His answers are in blue because, as you’ll soon find out, it’s his favorite color. Any notes I want to make along the way are in red because, as you’re finding out while reading this sentence, I like to have too many colors on a page. Enjoy…

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
Hey! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!
This paragraph is in fact a fastidious one it assists
new net visitors, who are wishing for blogging.
My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.|
