In my last blog ( I wrote about the fantastic support that we have at WA. I was recently caught up in a bit of a scuffle with Hostgator about transferring my domain back to WA. I must have tried six or seven times to get them to unlock my domain so that I could transfer it back.Clearly they either lacked the technical expertise or they weren't familiar with the ICANN regulations, or both. One of their responses to me was that my domain was locked for 60 days, i
You know the old saying, "you don't know what you have until you lose it"?Well, that is so true when talking about great technical support. There is also a saying which goes something like, "you learn by your mistakes". No truer word has ever been spoken!I recently had a bad experience with Hostgator and wanted to put it out there, in case any of you were thinking about using them. Without going into too much detail, suffice it to say that we are incredibly lucky to have the support that we do

Hi Everyone,I've been very quiet over the last couple of months, mainly because I needed to rethink my plans with my website. Things have improved slightly, so I should now be in a position to spend a bit more time on my site.I'm really not sure whether I'll be as active here on WA as I was a few months back but, for now, I'm here to say hello.Hope you're all doing great!

We all know the analogy which Steven Covey explains so well. In fact, this very same topic has undoubtedly been blogged about before.Sure, there are those purists who believe that there might be flaws in the analogy and that smaller, urgent, little pebbles need to be addressed first.But I don't want to turn this into a debate. I believe there is a lot of truth in the analogy as it stands.We have 365 days available to us in 2017. That's 365 days of making some powerful, life-changing decisions.

Yeah, that's me with the sad face!Why? Because I'm missing out on Kyle's live training event ( This, in my opinion, is going to be one of the most beneficial webinars that anyone could ask for.So, if you're a Premium member, I encourage you to make every effort to attend this live event! Unfortunately I won't be around for it, but I'll most certainly pick up the recorded version when it comes out.To those who are lucky enough to have alread

Enough is enough! It certainly is the season to be jolly but there comes a point where you have to draw the line in the sand and put an end to the gluttony.The problem with letting your hair down and straying from routine is that, once you've done so, it's quite often very difficult to get back into things. I'm certainly guilty of letting things slide!Take today, for example.I thought I'd check in on my site health and I was horrified to see that I'd slipped on various fronts. I'm clearly not p

Over the past week or so, I've seen a number of people ask - through question posts and Live Chat - what their chances of success would be, given that they don't really write so well.Some have indicated that English is not their first language. Others have declared that their spelling and grammar is atrocious. Others, still, have said that they always seem to struggle with writing something of sufficient length.Well, here's a solution for you. It's nothing new; it's probably all been said alrea

It's been nine weeks since I was taken out on the road on my hog. Ok, technically it wasn't mine - mine was in for a service. But that's not important. Eight bones in my foot and three ribs.I finally got out of the cast a couple of weeks ago and I've been having several physiotherapy sessions a week. I've been walking without crutches (although, "walking" is probably too strong a word), which is so incredibly liberating!So, now it's time to don the brand new helmet, the brand new boots and the

No, this is not another blog which attempts to teach you how to use heading tags correctly for SEO! It's more of a... shall we say... confessionary blog, if you will.In Live Chat the other day, the ubiquitous debate arose about which heading tags to use and when. So I started thinking about my posts and pages. I realised that, in a large number of them, I use my own CSS selectors (with a Google Font plug-in). This was my way of adding a certain flair to my posts and pages.The problem with that,
