I remember when I had my own first website – many, many – maybe too many – years ago. Then I paid quite a considerable amount for someone to build and host my first website. It took a couple of weeks – I was not really consulted – and looking back it was
crap I mean not very good. So late I went to night school to learn how to build a website and a little basic Html coding. Within 6 months I’d built a website I was proud of.

Well, after I got hacked on Bluehost, I chose the latter.
My commissions aren’t as high, but I can sleep better knowing I’m serving my readers better.
