Blog Suggestions

I am using WordPress to write my blog, and I have to say, I was shocked to see how easy it was. You can go to, and start right away – for free. They have templates which allow you to set up a website similar to mine. It’s an open-sourced software (Many contributors, providing free additions), so there are lots of free bells and whistles you can add.

As I have progressed online, I have added more, so I’ve changed to It’s still WordPress, but a little different because it has to be hosted on another platform. I love for this purpose. They were very helpful in facilitating the change over. Good people.

I have worked with Bluehost for several years now, and I am really amazed at their customer service. (One New Year’s Day, I was finding a problem, and they were there to chat with me. In English, my language). One additional item in their favor: they refuse to allow Pornography or other adult items on their servers.

I have had several sources for learning about the blog.

A few years ago I took a course from Michael Stelzner and his cronies. It was called Social Media Success Seminar, and I am still digesting all to which I was exposed. The internet is such a fascinating place when you begin to delve into it. You can now get on his mailing list at,
and you will be amazed at how much you can learn.

After understanding the need to market your info, I signed up with for an “autoresponder.” The autoresponder allows you to set up a signup form for your blog, and when people sign up, they automatically receive a message. You can’t be online 24/7, so it’s important for new signees to be treated well.

That’s most of it so far. I’ll be suggesting other things as I go along, and I would love for you to also.

Blessings – and hope to hear about your blog soon.
