WA site support just saved me!
Last Updated: June 27, 2016
I've got a new site I've been working on this weekend. About a half-hour ago I was experimenting with themes. I could only try a few from my site customizer so I went to Build Your Site and selected one to try.It completely re-built my site and erased my previous pages! Yikes!! I should have known!Yes, I'm an idiot for doing that...I'm used to trying out themes and it always leaves my posts and pages and for some dumb reason I thought the builder would just put another theme for me to waffle ov
Don't give up if rejected as an affiliate

One of my sites is about caregiving for loved ones and stresses 'keeping them in their own home'. I applied and was rejected TWICE by one of the companies that offer the medical alert devices ( I've fallen and can't get up type device).

Hi all!Amazon has a habit of moving/removing/changing some products. and I found out the hard way. I looked at a product I have on my site and noticed that not only the price had changed, it was no longer available for free shipping for Prime members -- and I had touted the price and free shipping on my site! I don't think anyone was inconvenienced by this since I seem to be the only visitor to my site :(Anyway, I'm going through all my Amazon links and changing/updating the links if the pricin
