    Spending time with my husband and children, reading, watching movies, jewelry making, and learning new skills.
  1. I'm a newbie at Wordpress and I've been working on my site today. I was liking how it was coming along, but then I somehow deleted or got rid of the slider and I can't get it back. It's a ThemeAlley theme called Alexandria. I looked at the editor and from what I could tell, the code was there. (Don't worry, I didn't touch the code) Any suggestions ladies? Thank you, Robin Atkerson
  2. Thanks for the advise Tawnya. I am interested in doing web design, wordpress creation and maintenance, as well as administrative,so it seems I'm on the right track. The problem is...I work full time, and although I am a fast learner, I feel like I need to be a master at these skills before I can offer them as services. My biggest fear is getting a client and not being able to complete the task. It seems like I'm spending all my nights and weekends learning these skills, but getting that first client seems lightyears away. Any advice? Thank you so much and congratulations on your sucess!!
  3. Hello Ladies! If you had to choose 7 must have skills that you would advise newbies to learn/master, what would they be? These can be software programs, personal skills, business skills, etc. I would love to hear your responses. I'm trying to learn several new skills, but I'm getting caught up in which are more important. So far I've started with Wordpress, HTML, Photoshop, and plan to hone my Microsoft Word & Excel skills. In need of advice. Thanks! Robin
  4. Thanks for the replies ladies. As always, the amount and quality of information is exceptional (especially with only 3 replies). I'll dig deeper into your advice. Thanks for the heads up on the firewall plugin!
  5. Anyone have any opinons on this? I would like to know which 1 is more effective. Keeping in mind that I would like it to be user friendly as well.
  6. This must be your lucky day The archives to our seminars/workshops are only for VAinsider Club Members. Saying that, this was one of those rare workshops that I allowed to be public for all. Here's the link to it: http://vanetworking.com/downloads/AngelaWills Thanks Tawnya!!! That was an awesome seminar and will help me and my business greatly. I haven't fully launched yet, but will be launching soon. Right now I am working on educating myself so I will have several services to offer. Thank again Tawnya, you have made my week!!!!!
  7. Hello Ladies! I too was truly appalled to log onto my email and see that I had missed this seminar. Is there any way to get a transcript?? Thanks Robin
  8. Thanks ladies, but I still haven't figured it out yet. I'm running Windows 7 on a new Dell Studio. I think it's 64 bit too. I'll let you know if I ever get it installed. The error message keeps telling me that windows installer doesn't recognize the program.
  9. Hello Ladies! Hopefully someone can help me with my delima. The graphic designer at my work gave me the entire Adobe CS4 Design Suite to install on my home computer. The problem is, apparently it is not compatible with Windows 7. Every time I try to install it, it gives me an error message that says something about Windows in unable to install and to contact Adobe. Has anyone else has issues with Adobe CS4 and Windows 7? If so, any input would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks Robin
  10. Thanks sooooo much for all the great info! This is definitely something I want to offer in the future, but now I have a place to begin. I really appreciate your help and input! I'll be checking out those sites later this evening. Basic html is where I will start. Thanks ladies--once again, you have proven to be the best resource out there for a newbie VA.
  11. Hello Ladies! I would like to offer website design, re-design, SEO, etc. in the future when I get my business up and going. The problem is, I have no idea how to design a website. Sooooo...I have to teach myself. I have an entire course I can take in Dreamweaver, but I read so many posts about Wordpress that I don't know which is worth taking the time to learn and master. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated! P.S. I know I will still need to learn CSS, HTML, and PHP no matter what. Thanks & have a great day! Robin
  12. Sherri, Check out the link below and you can read about Wordpress until your heart is content. http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page Robin
  13. Sherri, I checked out your site and I think it looks really professional. Does Vistaprint offer more than 3 pages or did you just choose to only include 3 pages? Overall, very nice for a starter website. (My opinion--I'm not a website developer). Robin
  14. Tina, Thanks for the input. I checked out your site and it seems like exactly what I need for a start up website. They seem pretty affordable and offer website building, domain names, and hosting all in one place. I'll check a few other options before I make my decision. Thanks Robin P.S. Thanks Patty for moving my post!
  15. Hey Ladies, Has anyone ever tried the free websites offered by Intuit? Any reviews or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Robin P.S. Think I posted this in the wrong category. Moderator, could you put it in the correct one? Thanks
