Congratulations To My Sister Louise and Her New Husband Andrew

Congratulations: Andrew and Louise Montgomery

On Friday the 12th of December 2014 my sister Louise married Andrew Montgomery. They have known each other for many years but have only recently come back together and then decided to make it more permanent.

Congratulations and best wishes to them both, all the very best and a very happy future.

Solar Freakin Roadways!

Imagine you had a really good idea that could change the planet but nobody seems to be listening. How frustrating would that be?

Well instead of just getting mad you could do something that will grab peoples attention. Like create a video that gets to the point and is humorous at the same time.

To be honest I don’t know if these guys are being ignored and getting frustrated, that’s just the impression I get when watching the following video. But you never know solar energy may help save the world.

Brand Yourself

If you are interested in pushing your on-line profile to new heights. I cannot recommend BrandYourself highly enough. It helps you get your other social networks together and make them present you to the world as one. Or in other words get the information about yourself on the various social networks you may be on consistant and help show how to do it better.

A very useful tool that even checks how well you present yourself and also helps to get you up the search rankings. Give it a try.

Here’s my profile.

Change of Hosting – A Good Move

I enjoyed my fling with WordPress.com but that affair came to a quick end. Don’t get me wrong it really has it advantages. Being completely free, it proved itself to be a great introduction to WordPress by the people who know the most about it.

Setting up my site was fun but I came to wondering a couple of things. Firstly how do I get the domain I currently own to work with it and, secondly how do I use all those plugins people talk about that can make your WordPress site into something special with little effort?

As it turns out the answer to the first question is a simple “that will be £9 please”. In an effort to make a little money out of people using WordPress.com for free, is to charge for the little things of course. They actually stop you from redirecting to your site with domain forwarding unless you pony up for the extra domain mapping option. All the extra options are available in the shop section that sits in the dashboard of site created in WordPress.com. I was tempted but the second question I had, was the one point that made me look elsewhere.
