The Shimmer Sparkle Shine Project is an organization that mentors individually girls and women across the United States on their self-esteem, through positive activities that nourish them to realize their own individual worth and divine potential.
While the Shimmer Sparkle Shine Project didn’t hold its first workshop until 2012, their roots go back to when the founder, Ciara, was in middle school. Throughout middle school, especially in 7th grade, Ciara was severely bullied from her peers. The bullying was so aggressive that she would fake sick to come home or just bluntly leave school early in tears, because she couldn’t handle anymore bullying from everyone around her. As a result of her peers constantly belittling her self-worth she came up with the phrase “Shimmer Sparkle Shine” as a way to encourage herself to get through the day.
Softelos has worked with Ciara on providing The Shimmer Sparkle Shine Project with a top-notch website that transmits the project’s values and workshop activities through the Internet to every girl and woman in need.
Nowadays many websites are built using a Content Management System or CMS such as WordPress, Drupal or Joomla. They allow the user to manage all their content through nice administrator control screens, and PHP, ASP.NET, or whatever server side technology the CMS is built on, will magically and dynamically create the website pages every single time a visitor hits the page.
Building a website using a CMS is one of the many ways the Internet has become so powerful, since the old days when all websites were just a link or two and a flash banner. As a matter of fact, in 2015, 23.9% of the websites are made on WordPress, but using a CMS also involves having to deal with issues related to deployment, security, performance and maintenance.
However using a CMS is not the only way to create a website. Building them exclusively on HTML static files is still one of the most efficient methods of creating fast and secure websites that still conform a big portion of the 60.4% that are not using a CMS.
