Tax Day Happy!

A little behind my window of posting, but none the less I’m here! Let’s get on with making today a bit lighter and fun, vs dread and worry!

Today is all about giving happy vs. worrying about the tax man! (I say this as I’m in the final leg of finishing my taxes, so hopefully your posts will help me too!) So here’s a few examples:

Hope this brought you a smile today! Remember God's in Control! #flockhosting

Hope this brought you a smile today! Remember God’s in Control!  #taxday #flockhosting

-or-

The best things in life are free! Hosting for your church is one of them! www.flockhosting.com #taxday #flockhosting

-lastly-

Romans 8:28 – No matter what happens on #taxday God is still God, and He’s in control! #flockhosting

Doesn’t have to be these exactly but light hearted, verses, encouragement, and through the day you can do up to 5 posts with the hashtag #flockhosting in your tweet or post – at the end of the day all entries are a name in the hat, and I’ll randomly select 4 winners, then from those 4 I’ll select 1 for the Chromebook and remaining winners will get Chromecasts!

This contest is open to anyone! Not just FlockHosters, so as long as your Tweet & Post are visible and meet the guidelines, you have a chance to win one of these great prizes! So get out there and post, if you’re worried I won’t see feel free to post a direct link in the comments below.

As for me I’m off to finish my taxes! Happy Tax Day All!

Freshen Things Up!

Many moons ago a good man (and long-time FlockHoster) named Josh Renaud gave FlockHosting an amazing rebrand of FlockHosting, we went from this logo (lovingly created by me!):

And transformed it into the awesome little square you all have come to know when visiting FlockHosting:

Well over the last 24 hours I’ve worked to freshen things up a bit, not a ton but a subtle re-branding to smooth out some edges, and prep some things like the first batch of 20 T-Shirts to give away in addition to the give away still on-going for the ChromeCasts & Chromebook, I present what you likely see across Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and all FlockHosting services:

It’s the start of some freshening up of things around here! Just like my desire to really beef up posting here on the Blog, I do hope to add some things like T-Shirts, Sweaters, Mugs, etc. some cool goodies to further get the word out about FlockHosting!

More awesome services are coming to FlockHosting.com too, new packages including things like tuned up VPS packages, Reseller Packages, Dedicated Servers, and Managed WordPress with all the bells and whistles included, no more “Add-on” pricing! Help me really grow FlockHosting this year, it’s going to be a BIG year!

Check back here on the Blog tomorrow for updates on the final days of the contest to get new banners, promo codes and more reveals of giveaways to come!

Fresh FlockHosting — Day 3: Upgrades

Upgrades!

All accounts on standard packages, are upgraded to the additional storage & bandwidth! I am working to migrate customers on lower/outdated/no-longer-available packages to be upgraded (at no additional charge) to our standard packages, so stay tuned on that!

I asked in the video “What upgrades do you want to see?” – give me a minute and post a comment here, Facebook, or Twitter – get in touch and let me know where you would like to see upgrades!

Lastly if you’re unsure how to use Web Disk/Web Drive – Check your cPanel login for the link (has an easy setup) or the technical version from cPanel!
