Family, you like to write and so you think to yourself, I enjoy writing and I will like to blog.
You have more to say than just loitering around Facebook.
So here you go, you set up a free WordPress site.
And, you post one or two things.
You are happy, you drew traffic.
Wild, Wild, West
If no one else told you.
Let me break your heart a beat, it is the “Wild, Wild, West“.
So don’t sleep hard.
