AND NOW FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT ... I've been a bit busy lately and haven't found the time for lessons or even research to add content on my software for home business website, the affiliate site I registered, or even the newest addition to my portfolio - my writing and poetry site. In the meantime, I have joined a writers' support group to try and get back into developing and writing my novels ... o_O ... yes, I said novels - because I`m not the type of person to do anything the easy way.

Take a slow, deep breath. It's not that bad. Really!! After all, most new computers, laptops or netbooks come with pre-installed software - mind you, the fact that it is usually offered as a thirty-day trial can be just a tad frustrating; if not downright misleading. I mean who isn't going to try out their new 30-day software to see what all the bells and whistles associated with the latest upgrade can do.

IS SOFTWARE A NECESSITY WHEN YOU START A HOME-BASED BUSINESS? I DON’T KNOW!

The simple answer is that if only to track your income and expenses for your home-based business, a computer program is the easiest form of tracking all those numbers. Other than that shoe box, of course! But the box-stuffed-with-receipts app
