There is always a first I had a first today, my first spam comment that was also a scam attempt. I get so excited when I get an email from WordPress to advise me that I have a comment on my website that I need to moderate. And so far I have not had many of those, but they have all been good and I could reply and approve them. So I was pretty ecxited to find an email today that there was a comment that needed moderation. Well, this comment was littered with links to three other websites. The pro
Do you think it is important to use a firescreen when you have an open fire?I recon it is pretty important to use a firescreen whenever you light the fire. Regardless of COVID-19 and the lockdown that most of us are currently facing, you still need a firescreen.The photograph that you see here is the damage that was done to my settee by a spark that flew out the fire.

So I started a second website, based on the training from the bootcamp, and even there I've had no success.Where am I going wrong?Where am I failing?I keep on going back to the train
The neighbourhood in which I live are currently asking all the residents to avoid buying any products that are wrapped or packaged in plastic. Their focus is primarily on food packaging and targeting local supermarkets to reduce the amount of plastic that they are using.

I joined Wealthy Affiliates approximately 3 weeks ago and have sistematically been working through the training. I knew nothing about building a website before I started, but I'm very keen on building an on-line business.
