    Love wordpress, the have great classes, although I’ve only taken their Blogging U. courses. I am excited about this gift. Thank you!

    I’m trying to set up this site, it isn’t as easy as I thought. I started at the wordpress site, I went to the go daddy site, they just wanted to charge me 186.00. What did I do wrong.

    This was so useful. It was explained well and made to look very easy! Someone helped me get a wordpress site, but I didn’t know about all these other possibilities. Thank you for this member appreciation gift!

    Thank you Jon and Laura. A few years ago I paid someone to build my website. I learned how to post, but that was it. I have wanted to tweak and improve my website for sometime however, the cost of getting it done by someone turned me off that idea. Now, with these videos I’ll have a go myself. Thanks again and wish me luck.

    Thanks guys … a very useful set of training videos. Gives me a lot more confidence in fiddling around and improving my site. Thanks a bunch.
    CBI has turned a corner the past few months and is becoming great.
    Well done — keep it up its much appreciated . Denis

  6. Diane Garratt

    I am so grateful for the invaluable education I am receiving from CBI. Education at any age is a priceless gift to be treasured.

    This is a generous, thoughtful gift. Well worth the cost of membership to the clubhouse alone. A BIG thank you.

    @Theresa, Word Press is free but you still need a hosting company, as mentioned in the first video. There were a few companies mentioned in the video and they are all about the same price. If you are really serious about setting up a decent website to have for a while, I recommend getting the yearly plans as opposed to paying monthly. And don’t forget that the costs for your websites, hosting, domain names, premium themes, etc., are all tax deductible expenses for advertising.

    I couldn’t pay someone to build me a website. I’ve learned about half of this information on my own but at great time and trouble. This is just what I need right now! It is so much simpler than other sources of information I’ve found. Thank you.

  10. Odette

    Thank you for this Appreciation gift. I am clueless on building a website and the videos and explanation see easy enough. I will be trying it in a few days.
    Thank you

    I absolutely love your blog and find neartly all of yourr post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for.

    can you offer guest writers to write content for
    yourself? I wouldn’t miund producing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write with regards to here.
    Again, awesome website!

    Fine way օf describing, ɑnd good paragraph to take facts on tɦe topc of mү presentation subject, wɦich i am going
    to deliver in academy.

  14. Teri Shagoury

    Thank you so much! This is the clearest presentation I’ve seen for starting up a WP site. You made it seem do-able. I finally feel that I have enough to start, which I never felt viewing other tutorials. For people who do a lot of sites it all seems easy and what you added was how all the elements fit together and work to make the site run and to personalize. I know there is more but this is a great help to start.

  15. Elizabeth Foster

    Thanks, needed this. Started a wordpress account years ago but never continued. Now I will continue and eventually send you the url to look at what I have created :D
