    Thank you, Veronica. I won't rule out WordPress.

    responsive web design

    Hi Tawnya, Thank you for your suggestions. The developer of the template is no longer providing technical support. I have considered WordPress, but am resisting. I have previously worked with a WP site which was constantly having issues. It may or may not be due to heavy customization. I like the idea of being able to make changes offline myself and avoid the need to call in a developer often.
  3. Now that I've addressed GDPR and SSL, I'm looking into making my website responsive, i.e., easy to use from nearly any device. The template I purchased three years ago claimed it was responsive, but Google's Mobile-Friendly Test says otherwise. [ https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly ] It lists several errors with images, CSS, and JavaScript. I have tried every variation of the URL I can think of, but the same error messages are being generated. I'm about to tear my hair out. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated! The test page is sheriorloff.com/rwd.html Sheri

    making international payments

    Hi Danielle, Thanks for the reply. I am using my client's PayPal account--my husband's.
  8. On behalf of a client, I frequently make payments to people outside of the US. This month I noticed that PayPal raised their rates dramatically. For some countries, the minimum is $2.99. Is there a less expensive way?

    being open-minded

    I began my VA journey with a focus on database management. One day, I was on this board looking for inspiration, and followed the profile of another member. That led me to her website, which contained a number of interviews with business owners. One of those interviews was about the transcription business, which I was only dimly aware of. My initial reaction to doing transcription was negative, but slowly changed over the coming days. It became a challenge to become accepted by a company. Not long after, I achieved my goal and happily got into the swing of things. Some projects are more enjoyable than others, but I generally learn something. That's the best part. Moral: be open-minded and flexible. You never know where it may lead you. Sheri

    QuickBooks data files

    I have been told by a bookkeeper that QuickBooks online does not backup your data files. Any truth to this assertion? Sheri

    I am very familiar with this business and agree that proper packing can help. However, there will be occasional delivery issues with any carrier. Your client might want to select which carrier to use depending upon past service and cost. Sheri

    Thank you, Tawnya, for the great suggestion! Wow, there are a LOT of choices there! Sheri

    headset recommendation

    Thanks, Danielle! I have always had better performance from wired devices and try to stick to those. There was a wireless printer where I worked in the distant past that was very temperamental. No matter how sweetly you asked or how many times you pressed 'print' it refused to do a thing. Until, of course, sometime during the night. Sheri

    headset recommendation

    Hi Mark, Thank you for the recommendation! You piqued my curiosity so I will also have to find out what a 'blue yeti microphone' is. Sheri
  15. I am interested in hearing current recommendations for headset / microphone combos. Anticipated needs include phone calls, listening to audios, and possibly recording/editing audios. Looking forward to your suggestions! Sheri
