True confession: I am no artist.
I’m not. I never really have been. I’m neither lucky, nor skilled enough to bear that title. I remember sitting in grade school art classes, next to friends drawing and painting life-like portraits, while I struggled to doodle stick figures. For this reason, I had never even considered design as a potential career path.
In all actuality, I fell into design. In college, I was searching for an elective to help round out my course load one semester, and Graphic Design-I seemed like an interesting choice.

Nearly all designers have an outsourcing-nightmare under their belt. It happens to the best of us. We become overwhelmed by a heavy workload, an impossible deadline, or some other circumstance that’s simply out of our control. Whatever the situation, we come to a point where we can no longer avoid the fact that, well, we just need a little help.
For some of us, this is easier to admit than others. I’m one of those people, for example, who finds it incredibly difficult to ask for help. I’m not sure what the reason is for my all-around stubbornness, but I absolutely hate owing people, asking for favors, and – most of all – admitting that I simply am no superwoman.

As many students near the close of the school year, I find myself reflecting upon my time spent in college. It really wasn’t that long ago that I juggled work, extracurricular activities, school, and family but looking back, it all seems like a faraway blur. Projects and deadlines that seemed impossible to complete on time, outrageously priced textbooks and equipment, and time searching for that elusive student parking space all seem to fade further into the past with each passing day.

I remember the day I created my first website. I thought that with a little promotional impact, and a reasonable amount of Social Media engagement, I was going to be able to attract all the traffic I needed.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. The success of a website depends on many factors. One of the most well thought out and researched of these factors centers on “earning backlinks,” a phrase coined by SEOMoz’s Rand Fishkin.

In the online world, a virus is used to negatively affect the people who own or view a website.

However, protecting yourself from viruses doesn’t require a Ph.D., nor do you have to be a developer or designer to do it. Informing yourself and having just adequate internet surfing skills is enough to allow you to identify them and keep your information safe.

Software development requires one of the most difficult and essential project management skills – the ability to plan ahead. Statistics show that 68% of software projects fail.
Now that’s an incredibly high number. However, the reasons that many software development projects fail might not be as obvious as you think. So let’s explore some of the major factors that lead to failure.
Management May Push Timing
It’s no secret that management wants deliverables ready as soon as possible, especially if it’s for a client.

If you ask any designer what the most difficult aspect of his or her job is, you are most likely to get a response that concerns client relationships. If we lived in a perfect world, all clients would understand grids, Helvetica, color theory, and visual hierarchy. However this is by no means a perfect world- which actually does work to my benefit, because if we did live in a perfect world and all my clients knew what I know about design, I’d be out of a job.
