Well, I've learned a lot just through the comments! And I totally get it. Much smarter to work through SiteContent. Now I just have to take some time to post new content! Hopefully, next week. Am traveling for a few months so it's tricky to schedule. But I know it's important so will give it my best shot. This new system will surely help!

Hi, I have just decided to do the Bootcamp Training after doing the first course(Get Started Here). I want to populate my 2nd website that I created for WA through the Rubix site content. However Rubix keeps taking me back to the first website that I created. Can anyone tell me how to change this?
Thanks, Sue

Hi Sue, do you currently have 2 websites listed when you open SiteManager? If you do then you need to delete the one that you are not going to be working on. There is little point in keeping it since you really want to focus on one website at a time.

Open "Details" to the right of the site that you no longer want and scroll down to the bottom and select "Delete".

All the best,

Brian

Why you get redirected to the first one every time you try to log in I don't understand. For that, you might want to contact SiteSupport.
I think if you have two websites already there is no need to delete one. You never know if later you want to come back to the first one and by then this one is already ranked and has some credibility for Google.

Thanks Zappades but I have already deleted the first one.

I just received a duplicate content message on a post I was trying to publish. I think it might be due to the affiliate disclosure that I use in my content. I use the same sentence in my posts. I deleted that disclosure and it published just fine. Then I added the disclosure back to the post in WP

Has anyone noticed this type of situation as well?

Also, if we use a template that has the same section headings does this pose a problem? For instance, if you are reviewing several different mountain bikes, in different posts, and you have a template with 5 or 6 key points, is SC picking this up as duplicate? Just wondering what others are experiencing.

With the disclosure you could do it as a page in a footer widget. Do the noindex - nofollow,as per the privacy policy. Then do a link from your post to that page.

I wouldn't add the disclosure on every review or you'd need to rephrase it every time.

The subtitles I would also try to differentiate a little. Google cannot read and differentiate what is duplicate on your posts but it recognizes them.

I used to put my affiliate disclosure in my review content but, I occasionally forgot to add it in. So, I put it in my sidebar and I don't have to worry about it anymore.

Yeah, I would love to have some training on this. If you look at Jeannine's comments, she is pretty dialed in. I have decided to put the disclosure in every post, so I don't miss an affiliate link.

Steve, glad you put this link here. There is so much stuff in WA this is a good way to find what you haven't encountered before.

I agree that it needs to be prominent. Reading the FTC guidelines it appears a short reference sentence, specifically noting disclosure, linked to the widget is fine. It's what I would do.

Not if you have a full page template. I put it in the footer then it is always visible.

Stefan,

Here's a quote about affiliate marketing from ftc.gov:

===============================================
"As for where to place a disclosure, the guiding principle is that it has to be clear and conspicuous. The closer it is to your recommendation, the better. Putting disclosures in obscure places – for example, buried on an ABOUT US or GENERAL INFO page, behind a poorly labeled hyperlink or in a “terms of service” agreement – isn’t good enough.

Neither is placing it below your review or below the link to the online retailer so readers would have to keep scrolling after they finish reading. Consumers should be able to notice the disclosure easily. They shouldn’t have to hunt for it."
===============================================

The second paragraph tells me that if you don't have a sidebar to place an affiliate disclosure near the top of any page containing links to product reviews, you should place it in the article prior to any product link. Putting it in the footer is not adequate.

What do you think?

Jim
Reply
Zappades Premium
I don't know for sure. I will have to check out some big blog sites how they do it.

Often though I see websites having a link on the footer linking to about us and privacy policy.

Anyway, do websites stand under US law? Actually, they are international territory :)
Reply
skmorrow Premium
That is a good question, I am not sure.
Reply
bpais1 Premium
Just because big blog sites do things a certain way, it doesn't make it the "do all - end all" for being correct. They may be just big enough that nobody messes with them.

I agree that websites are in "international territory." But, if you are in the U.S., that would mean that not only do you have to comply with international law but, ALSO U.S. law.

Hi! I feel like I'm going crazy again. I have a post that I just got an affiliate for...finally. I know how to add a links to my site because you can see the rest on my site..I have word content I want to add with the affiliate picture. I try to copy/paste with my mouse and all it does is delete a blank line. I've even tried to copy/paste using control c & v. That doesn't work either. I can't even copy/paste ANYTHING! Do I have a button to mark/unmark on my post dashboard page? It's not just in WA this doesn't work. It's any program on my computer. I even tried a dif't mouse. That didn't work. I'm out of ideas.I don't understand all the technical stuff! Open to suggestions, please? Thank you!

Whether you are adding a link through SiteContent (here at WA), or through your website back office, the process is fairly straightforward.

You will want to highlight the text that you want to create a link for, then click the "link" icon within the editor. This looks like a chain link. From there you will be able to add your links.

I have attached screenshots of both below.

Do you start writing your content by doing keyword research? follow any of the SEO best practices.
Your job is to keep simple to help people solve their problems if you are writing content like you are trying to help a friend, it will come easier to your content.
All you need is applying a little of the technical and marketing best practices.

Guys, I wrote a post for a theme I no longer use. It is listed as published. Do I copy and paste it to another template, how is this handled? I want to use it on my new theme.

Another issue, I included a graph on another post and saved the post. When I opened the post to add content, my graph was a single column about 2 feet long. What the.....? Oops to prevent a spam cry, what that means is, what the cheese and crackers?

When you change themes all you content shows up within the new theme. You don’t have to copy and paste any content that was published previously.

Cheryl, you are better off asking SiteSupport or sending Kyle a PM. SiteContent saves automatically as you type so no worries there. Do you have a Theme where your posts automatically go into Home in your Menu? Do you have a Main Menu? A Menu is necessary for your Posts or Pages to show up on your website. They will go to your Dashboard under Posts or Pages when saved. From there, you have to direct where they should go. If you don't have a Menu set up, there is training here on that, from Kyle and from other members. Let me know if I can help further.

For different reasons, my typing skills have deteriorated recently. As such. I often use Dragon Naturally Speaking to dictate my writing. My documents are usually saved in MS Word. Am I able to import a Word document into the Site Content platform? Or, am I able to use Dragon within the Site Content platform to dictate my articles?
Reply
newmarketpro Premium
Sorry to hear about the challenges you have gone through.
I am not sure if you can use Dragon with site-content. But I would suggest you use the first option i.e. get your articles on MS Word and paste it to Site-Content. If you encounter problem, then just paste it directly to wordpress site.

It should be working by pasting it to site-content before publishing it to your wp site.

Hope that helps.

Take good care of yourself.

Hi Richard

I don't have Dragon Naturally Speaking but I do use the Google Speech to Text program on both my tablet and Android phone to dictate directly into SiteContent so you might find Dragon will work as well.

I also know Kyle uses Dragon for all his content which would suggest that it works for SiteContent as well.

Have you tried it?

As a newly premium member, for my owning understanding.
If you had registered your domain either existing or registered there in WA, better still registered your domain on Site Rubix. Go to Sit Rubix click on site manager all your domain are there, both old and new, click on move on your old domain, a dialogue box, click icon that will show if you had registered on site rubix or existing domain, it will show click on the your existing domain everything will automatically move, from there continuing working on you web site.

or better still got - Get Started Here - click Building Your own Traffic producing website - go through Lesson 2: Move on Over, My Brand has Arrived.

is very easy to do try out.

I have just realized that pics created here with site content slow down the post a lot. When I reentered the same pics with the wp editor the site was fast again.
I really don't understand how this happened but after publishing the first some posts with pics added to site content my posts started to show a very slow loading time.
Today I tried the same pics that were already added to the wp media selection but added them after publishing to wp the problem didn't occur anymore. The site has a great loading time.
before 62 now 92 on a desktop.

Ok, so I'm stuck. I initially created a website, on my own domain. Published a couple of posts, works fine. Now, I'm doing the Bootcamp and have created another website, as a sub-domain off of the first one. I'm at the point where I need to do my "About Me" template. How do I know this new About me page is going to my second website and not over-writing the "About Me" on the first website? Is that clear?
Reply
tmaltz Premium
Hey Rob,

I'm not sure about your question. You could always go to the site and see where your links take you.

More importantly, I'd encourage you to just work on one site at a time. Wait till you get the first site profitable before working on the second.

This was advise given to me by DomW and it's served me well.

Cheers
Reply
HelenpDoyle Premium
Rob, having not done this myself I am only offering a suggestion. I think if one site is a subdomain of a domain, it is interlinked and not individual. Therefore any article you do will override one of the same name.

Why didn't you just buy a new domain? WA domains are very reasonable in price and this complication most likely wouldn't have occurred.

As I said, my 'opinion' only. Maybe someone else will come up with a better one.
Reply
Foobard Premium
A subdomain is managed just like any other website. You can go into SiteRubix, Site Manager and it will appear in there as a separate website to manage.
In SiteContent when you are writing your About Me, both sites will appear in the drop-down when you go to Publish. Make sure you publish to the right one. It should be fairly obvious because one site will be named something like yoursubdomain.yourdomain.com and the other site in the list will be yourdomain.com.

That said, I don't recommend you doing the Bootcamp as a subdomain of your other site. If there is some relation in topics, then that would be a different situation.

I would just start a new SiteRubix subdomain for the Bootcamp site. Then you can move the site to a domain if you want to continue with it.
Reply
HelenpDoyle Premium
Steve, thanks for this. As you might have noticed I know nothing of sub-domains. However your idea matches mine in getting a new website domain for the WA bootcamp site.
Reply
manahale Premium
That's what I thought about Domains and subdomains. I would suggest a change to WA that you are offered the choice of which site in a drop down before you go to publish, potentially lessening any confusion.
Now, just to be clear. I have steppingstonesforhealth.com for my posts on low back pain which I will connect to affiliate programs that relate to the subject (reviews on mattresses, massage products, etc.). Now, i am creating financialhealth.steppingstonesforhealth to use for referrals and to write about WA. Is there a better way to do it, in your opinion?

DynamicDavid Premium
You might want to use the idea of "buckets" in Site Content.

You have your "About Me" template in Site Content. You then create a new document in Site Content, using the "About Me" template, you then edit that 'new' document because you have some different things to say (about why you are in this niche which is different to the about why you in the niche for your first website). Save that to a "bucket" in site content called maybe sub domain dot your website name dot com (replacing dot with a . where necessary).

Then take the option in site content to save it, spell check it and make the necessary changes (if any). Then save. Then publish.

One of the prompts at the publish step asks you to specify the domain name, so you select the appropriate one (I assume that both websites are hosted at WA, right?) ...
Select the sub domain one, answer the other prompts, and click publish ....
Reply
manahale Premium
I ended up buying another domain. Seems to be easier that way. Thanks for the advice!
Reply
DynamicDavid Premium
That would probably make better sense from a marketing viewpoint anyway.

You might consider using a sub domain called "sandbox" dot one of your domain names. And use that for learning and testing purposes. That is one thing that I do. That way, if I make a mistake, it is okay, as it does not affect the live production site.

Hi Rob, when you publish a post and you have more then one website it will ask you to which site you want to publish. You'll see a drop-down menu listing the sites that are set up. Choose the respective one and publish.

I saw that you already bought a new domain, but wanted to comment anyway because I had a similar situation. I ended up transferring my domain from GoDaddy to WA and then moving the content I had created on the subdomain to the newly transferred domain. Just an idea if you wanted to do that in the future. There are a lot of articles and training on how to do that from others through the WA search bar, but feel free to PM me if you have a question because it is a bit complicated. I hope your new site is working out for you!

I'm looking forward to you guys adding our WA Blog as a site to publish to within SiteContent! It's moderately annoying to have to CTRL+A, CTRL+C, and then CTRL+V into the WA Profile Blog editor.

I’ve published two posts. But when I go into the site content page it tells me that only one is posted and two others are not. I’ve asked site support to help me and they have told me the one post, “Horse grooming products” is actually posted, but it says on the content page it’s not. Can you explain to me how this is?
Reply
BrianCh Premium
Hi Cal, I'm not a master yet with SiteRubix but maybe if you went to the post that is "unpublished" and try and publish it again. If it is, then you can either delete the duplicate post from the WordPress back office or it will overwrite it. You can then check your posts to see that only one has actually been posted.

Hope this works for you.

I am still learning/training and I am at the point where I am going to add site content. This is where I am getting very confused. Everything is about writing, articles, the number of words...my site/niche is about a product, a product to sell. Wouldn't my content be products? Images? I feel like i've missed something along the way or I need to be patient and my training will get me there?
Reply
Maddy55 Premium
Casey, to get readers to come to your website, to possibly buy through your affiliate links, you have to write posts or articles related to your niche. Some people put products with their links into pages, and do a review on the product on the same page, keeping their posts for ad free articles related to their niche. That is what I am doing for my second website. You will be writing articles or posts, with keywords that people search for within your content so it all looks natural. Some people will use their posts to do reviews on products, but if every single one of your posts is full of affiliate links and product reviews, Google may see that as spam and not rank (pay much attention to) your website as well when your readers are searching for a topic. Pages go into your Menu, and Posts go into your Blog roll or Home landing page. I hope this makes sense? I suggest that you take a close look at other websites when you yourself do a search on Google for something :) It will make more sense then.
Reply
Casey5 Premium
Thank you @Maddy55! It doesn't make complete sense yet but I'll get there! :) My product is for Woman, men, girls and boys. I understand the part about writing a post about the product. But how much do you write?
I did look at other sites within my niche and they come up with e-commerce sites. Products and prices and not alot of articles, if any. Maybe I chose the wrong niche?
Reply
Maddy55 Premium
Have you picked one product only, for your website? E commerce sites are a bit different than an affiliate type of website for sure. Affiliate sites are focused on bringing readers to your site through your interesting articles and reviews. I have seen many E commerce sites (on line stores for those that are confused what e commerce means) that also have Blogs where they write interesting stories or informational posts. I am sure all those blog posts have powerful keywords in them to bring Google searchers to their store. I am also sure that the descriptions for the products in those stores, have keywords as well otherwise how would that store come up in a search, right? Experienced website owners here say to write articles that are about 1500 words or so. Google seems to favor longer posts with quality content. Just the fact that those e commerce stores popped up when you did a search, means people are looking, using the keywords that are in their product descriptions. Without knowing what your product is, I cannot give more more specific advice. I think (but don't know for sure) that Google sees on line stores differently than it does affiliate websites.

Hi Casey,
Ultimately you want to sell products, but nobody really wants to be "sold to". However, most people do have issues or problems that they want help with. It the case of particular products, the issues are likely to be related to what the product *does* (or can help with) rather than what it *is*. So rather than focusing on, say, a line of food processors or crock pots, your initial content should be along the lines of "How to get a perfectly smooth puree every time" or "Is it really safe to leave your crockpot running while you're at work?"

This is the kind of content that Google prefers - content that helps readers solve problems. Keyword and audience research will help you determine WHO is likely to buy the products your promoting, WHY and HOW they use them, and WHAT words (search terms) they use when looking for information related to the Why and How.

So you should build up this kind of helpful content as much as or more than the product review stuff. And within each article, you can include some soft selling such as "If you're not sure which food processor might work for you, there's more information here" and link to a review page.

Does this help?

Your About Me does not have to be very long at all. The SiteContent has a template that has suggestive guideline titles to get you started. Once you have written a short About Me or just About (about your website), don't leave in the template titles. I have seen many beginners leave those in and they do not look good left in the article. Yes, when you click Publish, you will be prompted to choose a website, if you only have one, only one will show up. Then you will have the choice of just simply Publishing your article so that it goes 'live', or you can Publish and send it back to your WordPress dashboard to put in the finishing touches (that's what I always do). SiteContent will send your article to your website, there is no worries about that. You will see it when you go into your dashboard under either Pages or Posts, depending on what you intended. That is another choice, make sure you pick the right one :) Posts go into your blogroll that you create or automatically into your 'Home' landing page blog roll for many Themes. My Theme always creates an Automatic Home blog roll and puts all posts there. The pages will go into your dashboard under PAGES, and won't be seen on your website until you make a Menu for them and put the pages into your Menu.

What are the parameters used in SiteContent for your site to be indexed by Google?
I published a post about a week ago and I still haven't received a message to say that it has been indexed. However, in Google Search Console the post is listed in the Analytics section under 'Page'.

What does this mean? Am I comparing apples to pears.
Thanks

Have you done some sharing on social media or linked back to the post from newer blog posts?

For brand new websites, it can take a week or two to index new posts, especially if you are publishing infrequently.

Thanks Nathaniell.
I've been publishing 3 posts/week.
The website was migrated from a year old .org to a .com (is this classified as a new site?)

Good point about the Social sharing! I usually do this from the WP platform straight after I publish a post but seeing I published from SiteContent, I think I missed this step. Thanks man!

I'll do that now and wait a bit for that email.

I'm still trying to figure out best practices between SiteContent publishing vs WordPress publishing. Hoping that Jay's session tonight will address some of my concerns.

@kyle.

As per anything in life, including me, the spell/grammar check needs a bit of tweaking.

I keep getting word suggestions that don't fit the sentence. For instance I wrote, 'I think that the idea was great ...'. The ABC suggested 'thing' was more appropriate. Just wanted to let you know.

They are never perfect, they make suggestions but not are all going to be in line with how you write. That is just the nature of the beast and with grammar check. It is a very advanced platform for checking spelling and checks or hundreds of sentence structure checks on top of just grammar/spelling.

Kyle, I get your drift but I seem to be batting with 'Ignore'.

I once organised a seminar with Peter Sandman speaking on risk communication. This was for our department but we invited representatives from many of the groups we interacted with.

When I wrote the agenda to send out I got the following word/grammar suggestion. Sandman is not an appropriate word. Please try sleep fairy. (Now-a-days fairy is probably inappropriate too!) So I introduced him as Peter Sleep Fairy. That got a big laugh even from Peter. Mind you I did warn him.

What a great platform & tutorial! (I wish I had discovered it sooner!?). Some questions if I may:
When you post an article, is there a facility to choose which page on your website it appears in?
I'm assuming there is no 'copyright issues' with any images you can access via the platform?
Having written all my pages within my site without using this platform, would anyone recommend 'transferring over' via this platform?
Many thanks

Regarding posts: there are several options how to manage posts - it depends on your settings:
1) posts might appear on your home page (if it is not defined as static)
2) posts might be displayed on dedicated page
3) post listing will appear on the side bar - it depends how you set it up and on your theme

Kyle + Carson,

SiteContent is an AWESOME platform - thank you! Hubby swears by using it! ;-)

I have 2 suggestions please:

1. An UNDO last action function.

2. Different writing goals for different websites, including one for WA-profile posts.
That way Hubby and I can have separate goals, each for their own websites.
A global total over all the websites would also be nice too.

Thank you!

I have 4 saved templates. I can write but I'm not a writer and I'm not familiar with how to structure a blog post/article. For example I never would have known to use those 7 headings for a product review. Where can I find and save article/blog structures that I can populate with my content?

I have been using word to create my content then checking grammar with Grammarly. I recently tried the Site Content for the new website I am creating and found it very comprehensive. The only thing missing right now is how to add images, but I am sure that will be worked out shortly and explained.

TCUK Premium
you can already add images my friend

when in SiteContent writing your content, look at the editing bar under your document title
H1 H2 H3... etc... keep looking right and you will see an IMAGE COLOURFUL button-icon just before the ABC button

you can access tons of free ready to use image, just search for what you need and see what it comes back with
or from same place you can upload your own images

Hello Tiziano, I had totally forgotten about that button. When they first launched SiteContent, Kyle spoke about it. Thanks for waking me up.

Excellent Overview of "The Complete Walkthrough Kyle About the template feature.
How to use a template more that just once? For instance, I have four reviews to write
and, I want to duplicate using that same review template. Now, would I need to create
another sample template for future use,or will this one be saved.

How do I save the original template after using it?
Reply
TCUK Premium
If you open a template and start adding your own text... when you hit Save it will be saved in your My Content as a new file and the Original Template is not changed and remains in the Template area.

So you can load a template, use it with your text and Save your edited version which will be added to My Area as a new file,,, then,,, for your next article with the same template, simply load that original template again and start editing for your second article... save it (goes to My Area as a new file) , etc...

So you do not need to save the original template, it remains in there anyway.

When you open a template and do some editing, of course, you can save that edited file as a New Template if you want for later use

Hi Louisa I would normally save the original template as <new post>, and then use that for my new post, meaning that the original template remains blank, for later re-use. Otherwise I guess you could save the template after use, but would have to over-write the new content which you just wrote. Best Alan

My latest post in Site Content looks different than when I log in and edit it through the dashboard. The site content version looks like an older version, but when I published and got out site content it showed the newest, finished version and had a higher word count. Wonder why it's showing an old version now? Also, when I just go to the website to view it, it has the newer version. Anyone have any insight as to why this is happening?

Do it again.

When looking at stuff, remember when it was last saved to the system. It is possible that in one view you were maybe looking at an earlier version of the article, but somehow expected it to show the latest version of the article. Maybe a refresh would have retrieved the latest version.

Hi David,

Okay, checking it again today it's still showing discrepancies. Going in through Site Manager it shows my post with latest version, 1043 words, all photos, all edits. Going in through Site Content it shows 853 words, no photos, no edits. It was published 21 hours ago.

The funny thing is that I did the original post through Site Content and published from there and it showed the latest version. But I noticed like an hour later that it was different, an older version. Shouldn't it show the latest version 21 hours later?

I checked the website from outside of WA and it looks as it should, with the latest version.

It makes me nervous to use Site Content though.

If you did the last update using Site Content, then this is one for WA Site Support.
However a question, look for a difference between the two, some phrase in the "later" version, and look at that article in Site Content. It is possible that this phrase is there, and the "summary details are wrong", in which case WA support need to know so that that gets on a 'to do' list.

If you did the last update using the WordPress Editor, I do not think that it updates Site Content

I use Site Content to help me publish the original article, then once it is published over in WordPress, I do all my edits etc in WordPress after it is published. Everyone uses tools in different ways.

Great video from Kyle. I used sitecontent to write the about and policy for my website after going through phase 1, lesson 7 of Affiliate Bootcamp. I like the idea of having all my contents in one place. Hope in the future to have more editing features directly in sitecontent like in tinymce advanced.

The vendor that I'll be promoting in Clickbanks provides a bunch of articles about the product. Is there any reason I should not put those articles on my website? I'm a newbie so I don't know all the Google rules. It seems like Google would consider the articles as duplicate content because other people would be using these promotional articles. Is that correct?

Hello,

Duplicate Content is a no go.

May be the following link can help you : A personal promotion is certainly more useful to your readers.

Google does not like duplicate content and you will instantly lose all credibility and ranking potential within Google as a result of this. This is absolutely going to curb any chances of success with your website.

All your website content should be 100% unique. Sometimes you may need to quote something or curate a component of the content, but I don't recommend that you have any more than 5% duplicate content on a given page (ideally you would have zero).

Unique, quality content is what will lead to rankings!

Thanks Kyle for the training on the SiteContent. I'm a newbie but have had a desire to create a business for a long time. I was introduced to this my someone else I was following for another interest and followed the link to check out.

I made a great discovery when I found this by accident. I have gotten excited over the simple steps for reaching the goals. I admit, I have to back up and look at the lessons again but I know it is a learning process that takes work.

Just want to say thanks again for creating the opportunity to learn and enjoy the challenge!!

I wish the features in SiteContent could be available in WP through SiteManage for writing and editing the article, post, or page so we do not have to redundantly write in SiteContents where may be incomplete and we have to transfer the "imperfect" work to SiteManage. So, please implement the features in SiteContents, especially the button for FREE Media (pic) and ABC-grammar checks. These two features, to me, are essential but not easy to use from SiteManage.

Thanks for listening and implementing if possible.

It is a wonderful experience using WA site content but it can be disappointing sometimes, like if you forget to do everything before publishing you can not go back to it to it later. And again very depressing when grammar checker hang_on on you, you will not do much . As site content is subject to constant improvement please considered these areas I hope it will improve.
Thanks for contacting me

Maybe it's just me, but it seems when I publish a post through SiteContent, it only adds one space after a period? Has anyone else noticed this? If I edit a post in WP after the fact, there is only one space. I just checked my blog also and this looks to be the case.

It may be a compatibility issue with your theme and sitecontent. I do not have this problem with sitecontent but I notice for one of my sites when I publish a post through sitecontent, the formatting is completely off. I usually have to go back and re-edit the whole article to make the format readable.

Ugh, that stinks. I have also noticed that the grammar checker will change stuff and then Grammarly will change it back when I edit in WP. Or Grammarly will pick up a decent amount more.

I trust Grammarly more than Site Content's grammar checker. But if I didn't already have Grammarly, I would probably be more enthused about Site Content's grammar checker.
One nice thing I like about Site Content is that it is a central repository for my writing. And the new free image search tool is awesome. A huge time saver. It's probably the main reason I start my writing in Site Content. I do my editing in the WordPress post editor of my website, where Grammarly helps "fix" my writing.

I agree the free images are awesome. There are some really nice features with SiteContent. I use it for writing, then publish and edit in WP to embed videos, or whatever else I need to do. Definitely a work in process, but I am sure the bugs will get worked out.

One space after a period is the new style. Tough for an old two space guy like me to remember.
