Why I Recommend a Content Management System
Posted by Jereme Thomas | July 30, 2014Categories: Tips
Content Management Systems (or CMS for short) are computer programs which allow creating, editing, and publishing content through a centralized user interface. Usually this user interface is designed to be very user friendly and intuitive. There a many types of CMSs available. From custom proprietary applications to open source software, the first CMSs were developed in the late 1990s and their main goal was to simplify the task of updating and maintaining website content. Before CMSs, in order to update or add content to a website you needed an understanding of several different web technologies like HTML and CSS and possibly backend programming languages like Java or NET. For the average content writer or company employee this was a high hurdle and personally I would rather have my employees and clients focusing on writing great content and leave the technical jargon to the IT geeks like myself.
What is Gravatar and Why You Should Care

What is Gravatar?
“An ‘avatar’ is an image that represents you online—a little picture that appears next to your name when you interact with websites.
A Gravatar is a Globally Recognized Avatar. You upload it and create your profile just once, and then when you participate in any Gravatar-enabled site, your Gravatar image will automatically follow you there.
Gravatar is a free service for site owners, developers, and users. It is automatically included in every WordPress.com account and is run and supported by Automattic.”
How Frogmo was Born
Posted by Jereme Thomas | January 1, 2014Categories: News
The story of how Frogmo was born started years ago when I was in grade school. Pretty much as early as I can remember I had an interest in electronics – especially computers. I can still remember the very first computer we had in our home. It was an Apple IIc. My mother had purchased it used from one of our neighbors, who had older teenage boys, who played different Choose Your Own Adventure games on it. The computer came with a whole host of games and programs on 5 ¼ inches floppy discs, a printer, and all of the accessories. This Apple IIc computer started my computer addiction. At the beginning I mostly played games and tinkered with the other programs that came with the computer. This quickly led to more interest in how these games and programs actually worked which in turn led to the beginning of my programming career.
