I remember the first time I logged into the dashboard of a WordPress website.  I thought I had been given access to controls of a nuclear power-plant. 

To say that I was intimidated would be an understatement.

So much so, that I ran back to using my Wix website for a while because WordPress seemed too hard.

Which ended up being a huge mistake.

The time that I wasted on other blog platforms like Wix and Squarespace was time that I should have been learning WordPress – The most powerful blogging platform on the Internet.

There’s a reason 27% of the INTERNET is run on WordPress.

And looking back, WordPress is really not that complicated once you get the hang of it. There is just a slight learning curve that takes time and a little patience.

Fast forward to today, and Lauren and I fudging LOVE Wordpress!
