On another post, a member (Pinkthistle) mentioned she wished there was a way to do her on line shopping through links here, to help out and support WA members. I think Pinkthistle's idea is a good one. I have been struggling to get enough traffic so that I can get Amazon sales. I have had Amazon close my probationary amazon associate accounts 2x, and a third is looming. I think it would be great if WA had a platform where members could post a short description (for a product) with an affiliate

I have two websites, both using the same Theme but are very different in their Niches. I chose the Weaver Xtreme theme that was difficult to learn but once I was familiar with it, I chose to use it again with my second website. Sometimes with updates on the WordPress website platform, the various plug ins and the Theme program itself.... glitches happen. Throw in the world of Youtube, and you have more possible glitches.I have been trading off time, in between websites, from week to week. This

Not that long ago, another Member here (Waian) did a considerable bit of research and came up with the following sites for copyright free photos.I need to keep them in a easy to find compact place so I decided to place them into this Blog for my use and all of you as well.I have been using Google's images under 'reuse' but 'Waian' reminds us in his Blog that these photos are not always copyright free even though Google has chosen them as such.I don't think we need to Fear of being dragged to co

I admit, I am a Google Search Addict I love to search out different subjects and visit websites. So when I joined WA, and built my own website with WordPress, I already knew what I did and did not like or love about websites in general.Websites are a bit like the Love Hearts candies that I have in the Image. They all come with different messages, and some are better than others with their message. What do I hate about a website? I'll give you a list#1-When I encounter a website that has videos

If you're a sci fi nerd like I am, you may have watched the Movie I Robot, or other movies about Artificial intelligence taking over. Of course who can forget the movies that Arnold Schwarzeneger made famous, the Terminator and Total Recall. I recently read the book Origin by Dan Brown, (spoiler alert!) which implies that humanity is moving into an technological evolution, merging our present form with the technology we are creating to become a new species. When you see people's faces plastered

I have been approached by a few men lately, who have been privately messaging me. I have noticed that they have been doing this to other women here too. I have been sending PMs to these women, warning them of this activity here. One is CheersBrian2 and the other is Chris501, and I am sure there are others. If you are approached privately by men whose main agenda is approaching women instead of learning how to build a Wordpress online business, you have the option of clicking on the Report Spam

Many newcomers rush to add affiliate links to their sites, thinking that the money will roll in faster (I was one of those). However, expect that your website will not be searched out by Google in the higher ranking pages until it's not so new. Some here have said, at 6 month mark, assuming the website is well filled out, their sites started making some money through their affiliate links. Since only a small percentage of people buy, you will need thousands of impressions, and hundreds of actu

You might not always want your real name displayed on emails you send. As an example, you might want to hide your name when sending somewhat anonymous feedback or contacting unknown recipients. Although your email address will still show, this only identifies the Gmail account and not necessarily your true identity. By default, Gmail uses your first and last name on your Google account, but by configuring a "Send Mail As" address, you force Gmail to use whatever name you choose.1-Log in to your

There have been Blogs or Tutorials here on creating your Gravatar account so you can put a photo or image as your face on posts, pages and comments. Many bloggers put their own face in the Gravatar while the rest of us might use a generic image of a car, a pet or whatever. There is so little privacy online as it is, with all our private information in cyberspace. I for one, have recently chosen a simile of me, an Avatar to be used as a more public face.You can still see my real face here in WA,

I helped another WA member with this recently and have been asked a few times since then. I decided to put the procedure here in a Blog so it's easy to find."in the dashboard section, click on PAGES, and there is your list of pages... now take your mouse and hover the curser under the name of your page... now you will see the choices of QUICK EDIT, EDIT, TRASH , VIEW. Choose TRASH, and your page will be trashed, kind of thrown into the garbage :) Next step is the real delete part... along the t
