This retiree does gardening for home landscaping, which includes the front yard and the back yard. In our Western culture thousands do the same thing. For more than seven years I have collected succulents to fill up the slope of the property. The idea is to not use water on that area on a regular basis. I only water certain plants as the weather the dictates.
I have learned much about succulent planting and I have started Succulent Gardening:
Planting Waterwise in Southern California, to blog and organize my photos about what I have learned. I am offering my waterwise tips for transitioning to plants better suited for Southern California.
The main reason this blog is written here, though, is to doc the process and inform new website builders that anyone can blog about their daily lives and share the knowledge they have learned in an interest. In marketing and blogging speak that interest is called the niche. Pronounced knee chh. All one needs is the thinking skills of figuring things out. Being open to detail and willing to go back and fix or change.
For the new project, a small portion of the written material is going to be transferred from another hosting site. The learning curve was too great at Weebley for me to continue paying for hosting there and at Wealthy Affiliate.
The end decision was I found WA easier to use. It helps that I can ask questions of WA members so easily. The whole community is interested in one thing and that is getting websites to work. Get all the information you need from SEO to choosing titles for your pages, metas and URLs. One question that beginners wonder about is, can I transfer my pages or blogs from WikiHow or HubPages? Certainly, but you get all the details on how to do it without being put on page 20 of your niche with search engines.
The costs seem a bit high at WA, but if you are planning to establish more than one website it can be worth the price. For intense, I can review the Lessons for this second site and not miss any import detail for turning up the new site. My last turnup was February last year and I need that information accessible because in 14 months tons of details are lost to me.
If you are wondering about what to do in those long snow bound days, try a website at Wealthy Affiliate.
With the starter package you can explore and even start your website. If one month is not enough do what I did sign up for a second month for $48. Yes, the price went up $1.
After two months I decided OK I am doing things I like to do and all Websites need the hosting that WA offers. I signed up for the yearly rate.
