What's New at The Huelsman Way

December 3, 2014
Dear Clients and Friends of The Huelsman Way,

Happy holidays! It's been a while since I've contacted everyone, but I'm still quite busy at The Huelsman Way and so I wanted to catch everyone up on things and let you know of some new resources that will soon be available!
 

DNN/Mail Chimp Newsletters

Mail Chimp logoFirst and foremost, I've adopted a cloud-based newsletter system called Mail Chimp with which to communicate. In the past, I've acquired newsletter modules that plugged directly into my Dot Net Nuke (now better known as "DNN") websites. However, I now have a new DNN module that communicates directly with Mail Chimp. So, newsletters (and their associated mailing lists) can be developed and managed in Mail Chimp yet tied back to a website. It's the best of both worlds and the direction I'll be going in. For those of you with less than 2000 subscribers and sending out less than 12,000 emails per month, the service is free!

New Templates and Modules!

Easy DNN News logoMy big announcement is that I've just made a substantial investment in a new collection of website skins and modules! While I have some learning curve ahead of me, I will be making these resources available to all Huelsman Way clients. I've installed a sample site at http://easydnn.thehway.com to review (which took me all of about 45 minutes to set up). Complete details regarding these new resources is available at http://www.easydnnsolutions.com and I'll be sending out lots of details regarding these skins and modules over the next few months. For now, consider moving to one of these skins sometime in 2015!

2015 Web Hosting Invoices Coming

Rackspace logoAs a heads-up, every year about this time I send out invoices to all my clients who host their websites with me, so expect to see those near the end of December. Again, these hosting fees cover the basic costs of running my Rackspace web server, maintaining the DNN software and ensuring that everything is running smoothly and efficiently. You can learn more about my website hosting services on my Huelsman Way Plans and Pricing page. Please note that I'll be suspending mail server services in early 2015--more on that soon.

New Year's Eve with The Susie Show

The Susie ShowMany of you likely know that my wife Susie runs her own DJ/karaoke business (see her site at http://www.thesusieshow.com for all the details). Susie had an outstanding year in 2014 and looks to do even better in 2015. If you'd like to see one of Susie's shows--including her wild and crazy laser light/glow show--stop by the Claddagh Irish Pub in Madison on New Year's Eve, where she'll be doing her thing from 8 until close. 

Dogma, the Role-Playing Game

Dogma, the Role-Playing GameFinally, a little love for a brand new online web application I've developed called Dogma, the Role-Playing Game (RPG) now available at http://www.dogmarpg.com. The first episode of many to come, the game uses the DNN website framework to not just present content but support a full-blown online application with custom programming and database operations. Even if you're not into role-playing games, the Dogma RPG is a wonderful example of what can be done with DNN!
That's it for now! As always, I'm available at 608-692-9367 or via email at scott@thehway.com. Thanks for another great year, and I look forward to working with everyone in 2015!

Sincerely,

Scott Huelsman
