I am Now Officially a Premium Full Member with Wealthy Affiliates
So it only took me just over a month to go to full membership! Why so long or why so fast? depends on which way you look at it, in short, and having previously created many other pages & blogs, which never even got as far as I am now with my present site, I realized that I had learned so much in so little time and made awesome progress on my web page and continue to do so.
The tuition from WA is head and shoulders above all other that I have attempted to take, and I am just glad that I took the leap.
My advice to you, and bearing in mind I certainly do not have an IT background, is take the leap with me, somehow I don't think you will regret it!
