One of the benefits of Site Content on the Wealthy Affiliate Platform was the spell and grammar check feature. When Jay showed how he now uses the Block Editor on the WordPress Dashboard exclusively to write his content, I gave it a try too. I was right. Not having the WA Site Content's spellcheck and grammar correction benefits gave me a big feeling of unease. Grammarly. I kept hearing this term in various places, including from other members of WA. I decided to research Grammarly and found ou

Earlier this year I decided to dive into Email Marketing. Confusion set in and I did nothing. I am a very slow learner and barely graduated from University. It takes me a very long time to figure things out. Here at WA we have several means to solve problems. We can ask for help in the Questions area. There is real time chat. And there are all kinds of classes not only by Jay but also by other members. The BasicsI knew a little about the basics of Email marketing as follows: For example I need

It is not unusual to think of the following two phrases as being the same:I Want SomethingI Need SomethingYou can insert anything for that something. If you know the difference between a want and a need, that's awesome!.

I recently had the opportunity to watch a very special TEDx Talk Event. It featured six speakers and one singer who ranged in age from 14 to 20. The theme of the event was, "Lead By Example!"Let me list who they were. Since they are all influencers in their own fields you may hear about them or even from them in the future.

Do you like the stats Site Content provides you on all the posts you create and publish?

We had our Toastmasters District Conference today. This was the second virtual conference in two years as our last one went virtual because of the lock down. Throughout the day a wheel with all the attendees names on it was spun to pick prize winners. Most of the prizes were donated by companies that profited from the Pandemic, like Uber Eats, Postmates, Grub Hub as well as some restaurants like Starbucks. The typical prize was for food valued at $40. However, the grand prize was kept to the en
