Jonah Hill Talks about his Characters

Jonah Hill sat down with GQ to talk about his iconic roles.  I love Jonah Hill.  I am not afraid to admit that I have a bit of a man crush on this dude.  I wish we were friends, I think we would get along just fine.

Test Your Website for Awesomeness

OK.  So, it has been a couple of days since I launched this version of Enemy of Average (there have been many versions, but that is a story for another day).  I have installed all my little WordPress plugins that I need/want and everything is looking pretty sweet.  One plugin in that I always install on my blogs is WP-Rocket.  It is a great cache plugin to speed up your blog.  Google keeps banging on about how page speed is one of the most important things when it comes to your website or blog.  WP-Rocket helps me with that and makes the job really easy.  You should check it out.

Now that everything is running smoothly and I am happy with the ways things are looking, I always use a few websites to see how things look for my sexy new blog.  Here is a lost of websites that you can use to make sure your blog/website is kicking ass.

Google Page Speed

Google Page Speed is the first place you should use to check the diagnostics of your website.  It will check both a desktop version and a mobile version.  There is no BS with Google.  What Google says, goes.  Do what they say, achieve good numbers and Google will love you back.

GT Metrix

If you are using WordPress (as I do), then GTMetrix is your next port of call.  GTMetrix will check your blog out and give you a score from Google and Yahoo!  Just like Google Page Speed test above, GTMetric will give you some good advice to help improve your score.  Again, follow this and you will see some loving from Google and other search engines.

Varvy

Oh, Varvy is sexy.  I really like Varvy.  Varvy will give you an overview of some of the important things that you may have missed when you set up your site.  As you can see from my screenshot, I have not created a blog that is secure.  I best be getting on to that ASAP.  Varvy will also check things like your images for ALT tags, if you have a sitemap installed and a few more things.  Make sure you run a test there.

And the rest….

There are number of other sites you can use to check your website.  Here is a list of the others that I use.  You will find a cross over of information from these websites, but who cares?  The more you know, the better you will be.

The best thing about all of these websites are that they are free.  However, just be warned: Most will only let you check 1 website, then ask you to register or pay for more.  So, keep that in mind.

If you have a cool tool that you recommend, use the comments section below and let me know.

Flagpole Sitta Lip Dub

This was the first ever lip dub that I saw and I instantly fell in love with. I would even go as far as saying that this was the FIRST & ORIGINAL lip dub on the internet.

I have had this bookmarked for years.  Today, I remove it from my bookmark directory and share it with you. Enjoy.

And we begin…

Hello!  Welcome to Enemy of Average, my personal blog of all the things from the internet that makes me happy.  Over time, you will find images, quotes, videos, links and a whole heap more.  I will also write things about me and what has been going on in my life.  I like to think that the day I die, my kids will come back to look at this blog and I hope it makes them smile like the way it will make me smile. Oh, and I hope you enjoy what you find here too.

Doin’ it for these guys, but mostly for me.
