Angie,
Thank you too for your encouragement.

I have added a link to my start on my Grief blog in my signature. I haven't added any advertising yet, I guess I just wanted to get some things written first, except for Google Adsense and it always seems to be advertising something not pertaining to my blog, so I need to work on keywords in my writing. Just now I looked and there is an ad for Lasik surgery - doesn't apply to my blog at all.

I have been thinking of going ahead and getting a domain name and web site. The last time I tried WordPress I had such a hard time with it.

Yes, I have been thinking and have some notes on writing a report or e-book on this subject.

There are so many sub-categories that can stem from being a widow, I just hope I am not taking on too much and then end up with all the work for nothing. I said that wrong, it wouldn't be for nothing if I could help someone but I need to make some money with it too.

The last time I tried WordPress I had such a hard time with it.


I'm guessing that was before you were a member of this forum?

lots of us here are pretty experienced with wordpress so there is no chance of you getting stuck with it.

wordpress is a cakewalk - just ask!

:-)

You got it. I've always been a member here, just not an active member for a couple of years now.

Yes, it was a while back since I tried it.

Thank you, I will be asking questions, I always do. Everyone is so helpful here, I'm just dense sometimes in getting things to sink in.

Monna, I want to add that your blog posts are touching and compelling. God bless you on your journey to the 'new normal'.

I do think that your experiences will be of great comfort to others who face a loss.

Very nice and classy blog. It is a great service you are providing to others out there. So many people lose a loved one and it is nice for others to connect and know that they are not alone in their grief. I wish you all the best and hope your blog does well. I'm very sorry for your loss.

Thank you Dan,

I am working on moving it to its own web site in the next month or two. I just need to do some more articles and posts.

I think it's best to get content added first too. Smart move! And getting a domain and webhost for Wordpress is perfect too. We can help you with all of that. No problem.

Take it one step at a time and it will all come together. You can start a new thread for each different thing you need help with if you want.

Oh and I meant to ask because I can't remember if I did or not before LOL do you use Twitter.com? If not, you could join and I bet you could help others with your experience. Just a thought!

Yes, I did join Twitter, but I haven't quite figured out how it all works yet. I post a small "blurb" on what I am doing each day (I've missed a couple of days) and I do have some followers.

Hey Monna

So sorry for your loss Monna.


I was thinking about your idea and I think it is such a cool idea and so needed.

As a side thought If you included tradesmen that you have used and use that you recommend, You may even be able to get a percentage for the recommendation as well, Monna it can be stressful if you need a job done when you are alone, who do you call that's trustworthy.

Also if when you get to your Blog subscribers they could list places that they have found bargains cheap deals at supermarkets or anything really etc.

Just my simple input at what might be a needed area.

Warmest Regards

Ian and The Dog UK
