100 Pagespeed Score in GTMetrix, finally!

Posted: January 3rd, 2017 | No Comments »

I finally achieve 100 in GTmetrix, now I can sleep. One less thing to worry, the cookie free issue Yslow keeps dragging my Yslow grade to 99. But I’ll worry about that tomorrow or the day after.

Here’s my latest GTMetrix score: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/www.jehzlau-concepts.com/VQRcnXWN. 0.5s + 5 page requests.
Did this while tinkering my W3TC settings in my iPad, because I’m too lazy to open my Mac. Haha!

2016 – The Life Teacher

Posted: January 2nd, 2017 | No Comments »

Hey guys! I’m free-writing for now. Meaning, I don’t have any structure to this blog post. It’s all about my free-flowing thoughts that I type into writing. I miss doing this. This was how I started my blogging back in 2008. I wrote like it was my personal diary, but for all to see.
I want to review my 2016, so I can pursue with a better year ahead for 2017. So many things have happened, and while I lost so many things in 2016, I gained in experience.
So Busy
2016 was quite a hectic year for me. I got involved in so many things. This involved me becoming the liaison for our pole summer show, having a new job at a big company, realizing I grew another fibroadenoma leading to my 2nd cancer scare and of course, quitting my job and focusing on YouTube during my break.
Can’t do this without REAL […]

0.6s load time in GTMetrix after switching to https

I finally achieved 0.6s load time in GTMetrix after switching to https + doing some minor tweaks in my W3TC settings. Proof: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/www.jehzlau-concepts.com/WN5evABj. Now I need to minify and combine all CSS and JS files, Optimize the order of styles and scripts, then Specify image dimensions. Then that’s it. Maybe I’ll achieve 100% in both Pagespeed and Yslow grade very soon.

Fixed ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR. Activated https + MaxCDN EdgeSSL + Cloudflare Full Strict SSL

Posted: December 29th, 2016 | No Comments »

Before 2016 ends, I made sure that this blog is more secure. Just like most WordPress users (and since SSL is now for free, thanks to Letsencrypt), I activated SSL at jehzlau-concepts.com! Now https://www.jehzlau-concepts.com is redirected to https://www.jehzlau-concepts.com/. MaxCDN url is also updated to a shared SSL CDN url, then Cloudflare cryptography SSL settings is set to Full (Strict).

Enabling https in WordPress is pretty simple, I didn’t even modify any WordPress files (e.g. wp-config.php) nor the famous .htaccess file. I just installed 2 plugins, and voila, everything in this blog is now working smoothly with https enabled! The two plugins I installed are: Really Simple SSL by Rogier Lankhorst and Easy HTTPS (SSL) Redirection by Tips and Tricks HQ.
Just make sure you already have SSL installed in your host. If you encountered a ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR, you just need change your nameservers back to your default nameservers. The ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR usually occurs when […]

Christmas Tree Education

Posted: December 22nd, 2016 | No Comments »

History of Christmas Trees
Even before Christianity or before Christ was born, people have been using evergreen trees to celebrate the winter season. There are plants and trees that remained green all year, called evergreen trees. These trees had a special meaning during winter and people would usually decorate their houses with a lush color of green. People during those times think that putting green branches in their homes would drive away evil spirits and unpleasant energies.
Germany is where the first printed reference of Christmas Trees first appeared. In Medieval Germany, Christmas Trees are viewed as pagan practice, until a stylish and popular British Queen, Queen Victoria made it into a popular tradition.
Beauty and Style has indeed shaped the world that we live in today.
 
First Artificial Christmas Trees
First Artificial Christmas Trees were made of Goose feathers. They started this in Germany and dyed them green which is then attached to wire […]

5 Easy Tips for a Tech Detox

Posted: December 20th, 2016 | No Comments »

Do you find yourself reaching for your smartphone as soon as you wake up? Before you go to bed, is the glare of your tablet the last thing that you see? If you answered yes to both questions, then it’s about time that you tried a tech detox.

While technology has its benefits, too much of it can also be a bad thing. Eye strain is fast becoming a problem for many gadget users today. Likewise, some people experience neck pain from being hunched over their computers for too long.
To avoid eye strain, neck pain, and other health problems, here are five easy tips for a tech detox:
1. Limit your social media time.

How often do you check your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? Social media networks are a great way to stay connected, but they can also be major time wasters. Before you know it, your “few minutes” could become an hour […]

Switched to HHVM from PHP 7

Posted: December 14th, 2016 | No Comments »

This WordPress blog is currently running on HHVM (Out of curiosity, I just switched even if I haven’t tested it yet locally). If you noticed some errors on specific pages in this blog, please do leave a comment below so that I can check it out. So far, HHVM seems to be pretty fast and I got no issues with the latest WP version 4.7 and all plugins installed (W3TC, All in one SEO, Jetpack, and other necessary plugins to keep this blog breathing). If you don’t have any clue what HHVM is, it stands for HipHop Virtual Machine. HHVM is developed by the geeks over at Facebook. According to Wikipedia, it is an open-source virtual machine based on just-in-time (JIT) compilation that serves as an execution engine for the PHP and Hack programming languages. Check out this wiki to know more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HipHop_Virtual_Machine
I’ve been itching to try HHVM 2 years […]

To Splurge or Not To Splurge?

Posted: November 28th, 2016 | No Comments »

Hey everybody! Sorry I haven’t blogged for a while, it was a crazy week full of meetings, gym sesh, events, filming and editing. It’s the good kind of busy where all the things I do contribute to the life I want and where I position myself to be in a couple of years from now.
This thought just crossed my mind because right now, I am so torn on splurging for the holidays, or saving because I just decided to do blogging and vlogging full time again and since I went out for a looooong hiatus, I’m pretty much starting from scratch again. Either way, I think positively about my life and career goals and I’m optimistic that if I work hard then I would progress even further. It has been great going back to working and corporate life, but I miss getting creative and sharing things I learn here and […]

Christmas Shopping Tips – Saving Money, Time and Effort

Posted: November 23rd, 2016 | No Comments »

Christmas is my favorite time of the year! It’s such a jolly season and everyone is just hyped up for the festivities that’s about to happen. Unfortunately, along with fun and laughter comes a few holiday pains that are already very familiar to you. Traffic. Congested malls. Budget concerns. Yearly reports.
Saving money, time and effort has been a major concern for holiday shoppers. Through all these years, I have already learned a few things and I’d like to share with you ways that I enjoy my holidays stress-free.

Tip #1 – Make a list
Effective gift-givers make lists! Santa makes lists! Getting organized is the best way to avoid unnecessary stress. You can either make your own, or print existing templates if you’re lazy.

Tip #2 Shop Early
Shopping early gives you time to canvass and plan your budget. Do this when you’re already at the mall doing chores or waiting to be fetched. Don’t […]
