Wow. The WA infrastructure is very well done.
Hi Kyle and Carson.
I have created my first web site on WA called http://dead-broke-dads.com/ This is a site where we are going to arrange for world class experts to coach dads who are “dead broke dads” on how to run a successful internet business as well as coach them on other areas of life to help them recover from their trauma.
I have to say I am VERY impressed at how easy you have made it to implement a wordpress site. I mean implementing a wordpress site is pretty damn easy on other hosters. I have implemented wordpress on three different hosters. But on WA it is truly “push the button”.
I simply bought the domain name on enom, pointed it to the WA name servers, and created the site. I put the theme I prefer on to the site and away I went. In an entire day of building a site the only problem I struck was my site could not see WangGuard. But this had the happy benefit of me checking WangGuard on my other sites and noticing I had made a serious mistake in setting it up! Sometimes the gods smile.
So on my first blog entry I would like to say this. I am 50 and I have been in IT for 32 years. And I take my hat off and acknowledge that you two young lads have done a really good job of making it easy to get a web site up and running. You have done a really good job of making it as easy as possible.
I also want to say the community spirit is first class. The involvement level is first class. I am really impressed. Ian stood before a camera and said you guys were really good. And from what I have seen so far. He was correct.
I will go through the process of finishing this site and setting up one or two more to test out how things really work here. But I have to say as one of the “old guys” I am impressed. When I am impressed? I say so.
I am working on developing a campaign for the new year to promote WA to “dead broke dads” as a way to get them “off the street and on their feet” in their own internet businesses.
If all goes as well as things went today? I would have no hesitation in saying to men “You want a wordpress site to promote your business and lots of people around you who will help? Give WA a try for a few months. You will like what you see!”
Once again. Well done lads. Makes me very pleased to see young lads do such good work as this.
