Scott Carter




This week, what's inspiring Scott Carter, founder of maintenance company Barrel Roll and WordPress agency United Networks.

A podcast worth listening to:
I feel like I'm supposed to recommend something related to WordPress here but we all need a break from the grind and for that, you need The Fuzzy Glove Hour with Andy and Ken (formerly known as Seven Second Delay).

A concept worth understanding:
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Doing the basics of website maintenance properly and regularly can keep your site safe and your business moving in the right direction. Take our WordPress Maintenance Quiz to see if you are on the right track.

An article worth reading:
There are way, way too many companies that provide WordPress hosting. Finding a new host can be a nightmare since nearly all reviews are either paid or not vigorous in their testing. Luckily, Kevin Ohashi's WordPress hosting benchmarks cut through the noise and provide reams of invaluable data so you know who to choose the next time your host stores your passwords in plaintext.

A habit worth forming:
Stop working at a certain time every day and make exceptions only for emergencies. We all need to take better care of ourselves.

Something you're grateful for:
Radiators. We recently moved from Virginia to Connecticut and let me tell you, this place is cold. People up here go for a run in t-shirts and shorts when it's literally freezing. I want to pull over and ask if they need help but then I'd have to open the window so I just shake my head. Also, family.
