I received an email yesterday afternoon from GoDaddy that reminded me I have two websites that I’ve not transitioned to HTTPS.
In the last few years, there has been an uptick in the number of websites that have transitioned from HTTP to strictly HTTPS.

Yes, you read the last sentence correctly: 4 different WordPress websites.
At the time this customer contacted me inquiring about search marketing services, they had no clue that their website and 3 blogs were operating 4 different WordPress installs in a shared hosting environment.

And as for the Emogenius Game Show, it’s creeping right along into the late night spot as each week passes, having launched at the 8PM CST, now 11 PM CST, and likely to be cancelled who be not too far on the horizon.
