Over the weekend I saw something quite interesting that I thought I would share. The University in my area is advertising a short course in Website Building using WordPress!

I have had a few minor challenges so far but I got answers from others
So, I went Premium yesterday, yay! I think it’s a step in the right direction for me. Just a week ago I had no idea about building a website, keyword searching or Site Engine Optimization and now I do. My journey to Wealthy Associates started a few weeks ago. It was a slow week at work, I was tired of enduring the dreaded two-hour commute to the office and I started to wonder if there were any legitimate ways to make extra income online. I asked the mighty Google this question and I came up w
