"As a Green Bay fan I'd like to offer advice....Oh, You wanted advice on WordPress! Excellent discussion a few post back. I'm looking at Flexability3. There are a host of tutorials on setting up and using it. If you're trying to…"
"I just started a blog on Wordpress.
Can someone explain the difference/advantages of using the free themes that come with Wordpress as opposed to standard theme, elegant theme, etc?
Also please critique the site, I'm…"
Sorry for the late reply, I missed this earlier. I've been a runner for 3 1/2 years now, taking it up at age 40. I've done 3 road marathons so far, and might do a trail one next weekend. Good luck at NYC. I have…"
"Makes sense - BTW - I see you're a marathon runner. I never started running until I was 29, when I did a 5k. Then I tried a 5 mile, half marathon, and long story short, I went from not running to doing my first marathon in 10 months. It was a…"
Thanks for checking out the sites. The theme for the GregoryEFowler.com site is called MyResume, and I originally planned to use it for just that - posting my resume as I start a job search in the second half of this year. My…"
Nice sites, they look very clean! I'd say on one hand if there aren't a bunch of features you are currently missing with your current themes, then maybe you don't have a need to go premium. On the other hand, they are so…"
"I ended up going with Elegant Themes for my site. 70+ templates for $39 just seemed like too good of a deal to pass up. So far, I have been pleased. The couple of times I posted on their tech support forums, they answered very…"
"Be sure to check out http://catalysttheme.com/ before you decide. (BTW both Standardtheme and Catalysttheme are created by Christians...we're leading the way!)
I'm a huge fan of catalyst and would only use another theme for evergreen…"
As somewhat of a novice, I went with Elegant Themes for my business site and blog. They offer a ton of themes with an easy to use e-panel, all for $39 a year. In addition, it includes a Handheld plugin, which will…"
I'm sure premium themes have their place. But, if you can't afford one, or just don't care to spend the money, I've found one that has tons of features similar to a premium theme, but it's free...
"I think premium is the way to go, Greg, because of support and the community that develops around the theme, keeping it on the cutting edge. I use the Standard theme - http://standardtheme.com/ The coding on this theme is elegant and the…"
Premium themes normally have support. I use Solostream (affiliate) as I like their support system and you get a reply from one of the developers vs. a forum. The code is also cleaner on premium themes and they come with more…"
How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Dan's podcasts & newsletters
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I have been in IT with various companies for 20+ years. I am currently an employee (6+ years) at a manufacturing facility, but the job here is ending in Jan. 2013 with some severance pay at that point.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I have been aware of Dan's teaching for many years. I think I have an early edition of 48 Days, and, of course, No More Mondays. Since I have a hard deadline for my current job, I really want to make this year the year I figure out how to find work that I love, hopefully through self employment.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I took up running a few years ago to combat stress. It turned into an obsession,I guess. I have run a couple of marathons, and I eventually want to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I guess this is my stumbling block. Once upon a time, I was voted Best All Around in high school. At the time, I thought that was pretty cool, but able to be decent at most activities turns out to mean I'm not GREAT at any one thing or I can't focus long enough before being distracted by something new.
I wanted to send a quick welcome to the Write it Forward, Real Success and Profit for Writers group. We're glad you're here!
The group's discussion forum is packed with ideas, and is great place to get feedback on your work, ideas and questions. Jump into the conversations and let us know how we can help you reach your writing goals.
I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.
Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!
Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:
Just stopping by to welcome you to the amazing 48days community!
