We’ve Received All Your Inquiries and Emails at LIT and Here’s What We’ve Been Busy Working On

Our blog at LIT has grown so fast, it started creaking under the strain. So we’ve been busy moving our website and content to a new and improved server so it’s secure, ensure it loads fast on desktop and mobile viewing and can handle the traffic growth and spikes.


Updated: January 3, 2021

The Hardware and Software Upgrades to Our Blog

It’s been a busy September for LIT. Our blog’s visibility and organic reach has resulted in a heck of an increase in web traffic and inquiries. We noticed the time to load web pages was slowing down despite our efforts to optimize the web pages based on all the technical recommendations.

Then we finally accepted the situation – the web server and versions of software running the server and blog had become dated – it was time to take the plunge and migrate to a new server. It’s not a task we relish. Oh for sure, everyone says it’s a simple task and it is made to sound easy, but in our experience there’s always some kind of technical glitches during migration and this time was no different.

We’ve just about finished the server switch and then we can look toward addressing the speed optimization and other tasks on our technological side of our blogging. A rather crucial part of our blogging but the move to the new server alone has seen a good uptick on the prior statistics.

It’s 2021 folks and we thought we’d update ya’ll on the hardware and software upgrades. As anticipated, we hit a few bumps in the road which we’ve resolved and now we’re delighted to say that the new server is working super well.

Over the Christmas holidays we’ve switched from Apache to Lightspeed Web Server for – you guessed it – speed and performance.  As a company they are newer and smaller but that means like LIT, they are aggressively penetrating the market share and have built an outstanding and robust platform from our testing.

As far as the blogging platform, we use WordPress for the ease of use and CMS. Sure, it’s not perfect with all the plugins from different vendors making security a bit of a concern. However, we’ve got that well and truly covered at server level and with our WordPress settings. That said, hackers are always seeking to crack the codes and we respect that we have to remain vigilant for all concerned. It’s one of the main reasons we constantly upgrade and maintain our server and blogs.

LIT was looking to crack the 100k but we’ve managed to break below 90k, so we’re super happy. Our national ranking at 17k is fantastic, we’ve no complaints.

The Concerned Citizens Are Writing to LIT

Yes, we recognize and apologize for being tardy in responding to those emailing with thoughts, comments and/or questions.

It’s been a rather busy time for this niche  – but powerful – investigative news blog. We are in demand and time is limited. That stated, we are going to write to each of you in due course, on a first in, first out basis.

The above is still a LIT WIP (work-in-progress) due to the time we had to spend on the upgrading of the server and blog features but we’ve made good strides. Thanks for your patience.

The Contact Form

Many of y’all are using the contact form as we turned off comments on the blog as a result of spam abuse and to ensure the server was secure. On our list of upgrades is a far more detailed array of contact options, including the ability to upload documents to send to LIT. We’re also going to turn on blog commenting in the near future.

Shortly after we posted this article, we added the ability to upload files, docs, images and pdfs on our contact form and it’s proven to be popular. We’re glad y’all like the ability to send us your stories and backup documentation. If you’ve any other requests, please don’t hesitate to shoot us a note.

Take Down Notices

We’re seeing a lot of grumpy lawyers sending what we call “midnight courage” emails about a LIT article referencing the named lawyer (usually a complaint of misconduct or similar). At LIT we understand substance abuse is a huge problem in the legal services industry but sending nonsensical emails stating we’re ‘defaming’ you is not going to fly when we’re relying on a court document which outlines the allegations and we’re just republishing the proceedings like any other news outlet or journalist.

Now, if we’ve not updated the case and you would like to leave your 2 cents on our blog, we’re happy to oblige. Y’all can send over your rebuttal(s). But please do not impeach yourselves by making false allegations against LIT, it is not recommended to stoke the fire that’s already burning brightly.

We’re investing in LIT because we see the difference LawsInTexas.com has made in it’s relatively short existence. The people are not just upset, they are truly angry  – and that’s the right adjective which will enforce change.

Citizens and residents who watched the courts act as executioners in black robes to illegally steal homes for the banks, or their children in family court, or whatever other legal controversy they were/are involved in.

At LIT we are watching “them”  (the lawyers, judges and government entities) watching all of us and they are very, very worried as to the fact that they have been rumbled. How far can the lies continue before someone steps up in authority and says we have to address this problem and fix it.

At LIT, we believe this is going to happen in the near future. However, we cannot do it alone. It needs your voice, your activism and your determination not to succumb to the fraud and illegality being perpetrated upon the people. Stand strong, stand with LIT and let’s make history together.

Justice Seeker.

Finally, we’d like to thank our wonderful donors and supporters. In the majority, most are litigating their own battles in both state and federal courts nationwide.  Our heart and thoughts are with you in 2021 and our commitment is to work the hardest – every single day – to make your investment (yep, and our investment too) in seeking justice prove a worthwhile endeavor.

We’re convinced our efforts and online investigative blog can and is already starting to make a material change. The good news is we’ve been receiving words of encouragement from many in the legal services industry who have recognized LIT and the work we do for #WeThePeople. Stay strong and stay safe. Wear a mask – if not for yourself, for others.

p.s. If you have the ability and the desire to be a LIT donor, we’d truly appreciate your support. As always, it’s a big ole 10-gallon hat tip from the Justice Seeker.
