  1. I need to check out the new gmail Mike. Outlook just updated their interface and it's just awful! Not only that, their 'calendar' just reminded me that I have a payment due. WTF? Microsoft is now gonna remind me when my bills are due? I DID NOT and do not use their calendar feature! There are more changes and I hate them. Yesterday was a great day for bad moods! The Ides of Aug??? 😁

    Tips for writing a classic romantic novel

    We live in a throw away society. Yet, they still ask our school kids to read the classics, right? It's because they're well written, and actually have a story behind them and not "Wanna drink beer and play PS2?" (Virtual sex?)... LOL.. An example is Terra. She is about to publish her second children's book and they're based in a time when none of this technology was even available. Kids actually had to play outside, do stuff! The children that are reading her first book, are loving it! Her stories are full of adventure and all of it was right outside her front door, and some of it inside the house! Point being that yes, you can succeed with a wholesome romantic novel full of positive vibes. The modern audience, I suspect, is still has a yearning for a well written love story. No matter the era, passion and romance will stay the same, they are timeless. ~ Theresa

    ^^^ This! Princess is right, romance is very much alive, even in this fast paced world of instant gratification.
  4. Some of it, yes, is a hosting issue. Depends on the type of hosting a site owner is using. A lot of site load is the amount of freaking ads they have displayed, too. Internet speed, the platform the site was built on, time of day (internet traffic), cookie stuffing and it could be Tuesday. *True story.. my internet would always slow down on Tuesdays. Verizon blamed it on my trees. So, sure, every Tuesday, my trees decided to block my signal. One last thought, and it may not apply to you, is the age of your equipment and/or operating system(s). With my cellphone, Verizon is pulling the same crap Apple just got in hot water for and that's slowing down your phone if it's older. Mine needs to upgraded, for sure, but I don't mind it being slow, it's the no signal, or 3G that gets me cranky. I've been putting off calling them until I'm done biting my mad spot. To sum up, it's a ton of different reasons Shay.

    WF promoting Dan Lok

    At first glance of Dan's site, to me, a lot of claims he can't possibly back. Running white text over an image that has a white background, fail. Multi millionaires should have a staff to catch that shit, right? 83.33 a minute for a call. Red satin suit, cheesy website, multi billionaire, ... The 2000's called, they want their marketing back.

    Would this be Isabella? Or, is this someone new?

    Social Media Marketing

    To me, social media should be a part of your marketing, not your only marketing. They're leaving money on the table. You can certainly SEO your social media pages, though.

    Hosting

    This is so common Wirenut. These companies, especially GoDaddy and Hostgator, rely on the fact you 1) possibly don't know how to do this. And 2) Don't wanna do it! *I'm sure that changing up your hosting after a long day is the last thing on your mind! The fact they told you that you were on an older server, IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM! It's their's, period. You pay what other's are paying, you get the same service. As BIG Mike stated, the add on fees, are just crazy! GD is the worst with this! An even bigger problem is you get a supposed tech guy that doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. Most businesses don't want, nor have the knowledge, to mess with understanding all there is to know with hosting and what exactly is offered in their 'service'. This is why a majority still use the ol' drop and drag sites. I don't know enough about Joomla to say anything here, but I know your site. I still think switching to WP is a good solution for you. An updated look and a better hosting company, your problems are solved. Shared hosting is crap, no matter what they call it. I know I have learned my lessons!

    Hosting

    Just sent you a PM.. hope it helps. Did they tell you what kind of 'new server' they're talking about? If a server can get old (have no idea), you'd think they would just move you or at the very least, upgrade everyone on the 'old server' knowing full well that it isn't providing what you are paying for.

    Opinions wanted please

    The picture you and I talked about, I thought it was a good front cover because of the word "challenges" being in the title. To me, that one chapter, especially, depicts the whole title of the book. Yep, I'm bias, that's one of my favorites. ❤️ I've seen authors have winter scenes before and I don't think it's ever hindered sales during the warmer months. I also don't believe your fans will let that hinder them, either. Think of it the opposite way, did the summery look of your first book hinder the sales during the colder months? The collage idea that BIG Mike posted is great, too! That graphic designer of yours has some mad skills, what does he think?
