Welcome to Your Online Guide for Web Property Owners

There are copious amounts of information being presented online in the 21st century to help Web Property (website) Owners in creating their own virtual space on the World Wide Web, or as we casually call it- THE INTERNET.

I am the last one to knock any information that others have taken their time to post in order to help me-phngthose who are stuck in the dense fogginess of the web, for it is those very gracious individuals who I have studied in order to perfect my craft.  I am the first one to admit, however, that many of them speak as if the viewer/listener has at least the basic knowledge of “internet life”, but the truth of the matter is that most who desire or need web presence have no clue on how to go about establishing that presence.  Many don’t know anything beyond purchasing a domain name, after that, they are open prey to the many internet sharks who are waiting in the pool of murky waters to convince you to park your domain name with their company/business.

Hello, and Welcome to my Blog. My name is T’Malkia Zuri, and I am the Founder and CEO of Griot International, LLC, the umbrella for GriotSites Web Hosting & Designs and Griot Publishing House. I have been in the business of publishing books and Web Properties (websites) since 2007.  I didn’t really have anyone to hold my hand when I decided to enter the web hosting and designing business.


Come to think of it, I never imagined that I would be in the business I am in today. Unforeseen circumstances forced me to take a closer look at my life and career path. I injured my foot and knee while performing my work duties on my former job that caused me to be out of commission for approximately a year. That was a difficult time for me that turned out to be the beginning of my journey to owning my own business. I used the time that I spent sitting around in leg and knee braces to decide what I wanted to do in life and how I was going to get there. Here we are 10 years later and I am super excited to share my knowledge, advice, and tips regarding your survival on the exciting but often complicated World Wide Web.
