Are you having trouble getting started or making progress on the Architect Exam?!?? Is the self-guided nature of the ARE not working for you?

Join our virtual study group. The ARE Boot Camp has a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with and hold you accountable. The program is organized similar to a "design studio", to help you study for the Architect Exam.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions beginning in September and October 2017  for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam.

Hey folks,

January was a busy month. Alots happened.

I decided to move my blog over to YoungArchitect.org and to ditch blogging under michaelriscica.com. That was actually my original plan. I was only using michaelriscica.com until I found a better blog name and also felt like I understood blogging a little better. MichaelRiscica.com is going to become my architecture business/portfolio website.

So I bought YoungArchitect.org and moved over my blog from the old site. Since then I have basically been a full time student studying internet at the school of hard knocks. I’ve been learning all types of things I never existed about WordPress, SEO, themes, web hosting, plug-ins, getting traffic to my website, social media, the list goes on.

It’s all good stuff. I’m the man for the job! I love the internet and I love technology. In 2003 I used to say I was the King of the Internet!  Maybe someday I can get back to that place.

Hmmmmm… Does anyone know who the king of social media is?

Anyways, Jeanne and I took some vacation and spent a week in Beaufort, South Carolina (1 hour outside Charleston) to hang out with her Dad and have a good time. We both desperately needed to get the hell out of cold dark wet Portland in January. Ugh. Portland in January is not my happy place.

Here are my long awaited photos.

Cheers,

Mr. Michael (future King of the internet) Riscica
