Bio

I’m retired, and I now live alone in my condo here in, New Jersey, where I moved in 2010 from, Maryland, where I grew up.
I love working on my WordPress websites and I try to learn something new every day. I started online at 55 years of age, and I knew absolutely nothing about computers! I quite literally had to search my first laptop for the on-button which was conveniently hidden under the lid, or screen when it’s closed.

I have learned how to build sites, do some affiliate marketing, email marketing, and even some SEO which I find rather fascinating whenever I’m not pulling what little hair I have left out of my head!

WordPress Origin Story

Well, my story isn’t so fascinating. I actually started learning how to build a site the old fashioned way with .html and that was on a very simplistic level as I am sure you can imagine.

After setting up your Header & Title, I would go to the body of the page and write some content until I got to the bottom and then set up the Footer. Now, of course, that is merely the most basic beginnings of a .html page.

Once I tried that I knew that there had to be a better way? I started reading online and I was quickly shown WordPress and the rapid pace it was growing within the online community. WordPress was quite literally spreading like a virus, hence the phrase, “Going Viral”.
