The Importance of Backing up Your Website

For anyone who may have noticed... my site has been up and down for the past 24 + hours. A lovely little update to WordPress to 4.3 and a plugin broke = braking the whole site. I jumped the gun and "restored" to an earlier version. Discovered the fix, but by then the restore was in the queue and I was unable to stop it. That when I ran a back up of my site (a practice I should do more often anyhow). This move allowed me to have an up to date version of my site. Although I had to go through the restore and then subsequent updates - which through out all my template customizations and formating when I got back to 4.3 I was able to run my restore and Voilà! my site was back. Thank goodness for that back up otherwise hours of customization and years of content would have vanished with my hasty restore due to a plugin that needed a simple update.

Bethlehem Little League (Richmond, VA) New Logo

This week Bethlehem Little League approved their new logo.

Since there had been a degradation of the organizations "de facto" brand in the past few years, I recommended that the organization move away from their historical script logotype and transition to a clean, modern and forward moving type face which would support the organizations values and goals. With this new direction,  Univers was selected to be the foundation for the new logo design. This provides a modern feel (typically associated with san-serif typefaces), as well as stability and grounding (by utilizing a heavy weight). The utilization of italicized letter forms for the Bethlehem word mark produces  a subconscious perception of forward movement, with the addition of serifs on the letters B & E, the sense movement is enhanced.
