Why I Love TED Talks

I love them because they are awesome! Watching a TED talk can either educate you, inspire you or boost your creative thinking and quite often it does all of that at the same time! As their website states, TED is all about the ideas worth spreading, no doubt there.

My favorite TED talk is called The electric rise and fall of Nikola Tesla,  it is performed by Marco Tempest and you can watch the full video and get stunned by its awesomeness right here:

One other very interesting fact about TED is how many people get involved with the whole idea and how they contribute. TED talks get translated to different languages thanks to the community that supports TED and this is an ongoing process which found its place in almost every country in the world. These two translations to Serbian are my small contribution to the whole idea (I added them while I was working as a Head of Customer Happiness team at ManageWP):

Please, please, people. Let’s put the ‘awe’ back in ‘awesome’

Embrace the near win

Shared Hosting – Which One to Choose?

I’ve been with ManageWP for almost 2 years now (as a part of the Customer Happiness team) and one of many (I mean countless!) benefits I gained so far is the opportunity to check and test a lot of different hosting providers from all around the globe. There is an almost infinite number of choices you have when you are about to pick the right hosting provider for your WordPress website. I hope that this article will help at least one person with his/her decision!

All in all, I ran the majority of tests in a shared environment (which is mostly used) and in my opinion, these are the ones everybody should consider for their WordPress website:

  •  A2 Hosting – definitely on top of my list! SSD in their machines really gives your sites some pretty serious speed boost!
  • Hostgator – never have I had any problems with sites hosted by them. One of the very best hosting providers out there!
  • Bluehost – one of the most popular hosting providers in the world!
  • GoDaddy – quite decent and not expensive. I hosted my own personal website there for a while.

Which ones would you recommend?
