How to start a website in 2 hours without any coding

The Kindle version of the book, How to Make a Website or Blog with WordPress WITHOUT Coding, on your own domain, all in under 2 hours! is free today as a promotion on Amazon. The book has a lot of good information in it, and would help you start creating a money making website. The book is written by Mike Omar, who is an online marketer, so the book is choked full of some affiliate links. I suppose by offering the book for free, he's hoping to make some money on the backend by prompting you to click on some of his affiliate links.

Still, this is a fantastic opportunity for those of you who are 50+ and needing to setup a little website for a part-time business venture if you're semi-retired.

WordPress blogs aren't that hard to manage. I've setup a few for my web business clients. Even without being overly technically inclined they seem to do pretty well managing the blogs themselves. Of course, if they need help, I'm only an email or phone call away.

 Here are the topics covered in his book:


  • The SMARTEST and CHEAPEST way to buy a domain.
  • The SMARTEST and CHEAPEST way to buy a hosting package.
  • Linking your domain to your hosting account and installing WordPress.


  • An introduction to WordPress and best Search Engine Optimization (SEO) settings for your website.
  • How to add pages for regular websites.
  • How to add posts for blogs.
  • How to add pictures and links.
  • How to set up a sidebar using widgets.
  • How to change the look of your website with different themes.
  • How to add a contact form, plugins, and social media buttons.


  • How to install Google Analytics for tracking.
  • How to add "buy now" PayPal buttons.
  • How to add an interactive "Google Maps" map to your website.
  • How to set up a mailing list / newsletter (and best practices for doing so).
  • How to protect your website from hackers, malware, and other viruses.
  • Resources for e-commerce websites, doing keyword research, doing link building and SEO, affiliate marketing, membership websites, outsourcing, video recording, and more!


  • What are some of the most common methods for making money online?
  • What is the simplest way to make passive income online?
  • If I want to make money online, where do I start?
  • The Structure of a $1,000 per Month Passive Income Website.

This book will enable you to build a professional website on your own domain in less than a couple of hours AND teach you a skill set that will blow open your possibilities for entrepreneurship!

The book links to a number of video tutorials on YouTube that show you exactly how to go about some of these tasks. But he's a little vague on registering the domain name and setting up a hosting account. His directions for installing a WordPress blog certainly don't go into any great detail either. But.... some of us who are just soooo used to doing this sort of thing, often don't realize that people who would be interested in a beginners guide like this, probably need help with the basics too.

I'll tell you what! If you sign up for a domain name and hosting account by clicking here, all you need to do is send me the domain name, username and password to access your account, and I will install WordPress for free for you. This is a great chance for folks over 50+ to get started making a little extra cash. But if you're wanting to make money, please don't think this will make you an instant guru, and follow some of the advice in this free book. Like where it says:

Follow along the lessons in this ebook and start your very own website to play around with and start learning! Do you know what your very first website should be? A website advertising your new business: making websites for others!   In other words, once you have gone through this ebook entirely, you will be a qualified freelance web designer, since most websites will be within your ability to design!

You are not going to be a "freelance web designer" -- to be passable at it, it takes years of study. I know! I've been doing it for 15 years.

Still, all in all, the book does offer some good information. And since the Kindle version is free today, you might as well click here and grab a copy, if you have any interest at all in this topic.

And, if you have clicked this link to register your domain name and hosting account and want me to setup up your WordPress website for you, I might be able to offer a little more help....

I've mentioned before that under Hobbies in the Forums, we could have a new topic to discuss  websites. I don’t know how many people would be interested in it, but if you are, either email me or put a comment below and let me know. It could be a lot of fun, and I can guarantee you would learn something. If I get a number of requests to setup WordPress blogs for free, it would be better to have a forum to answer any questions you might have, rather than having to email each one of you the same answers to the same questions. You could check the forum first, to see if your question has been answered.

My free install WordPress offer is time limited and only available to those people who have clicked this link to register a domain name and hosting account. Think if this as a Merry Christmas gift to my readers.

Study Confirms Hemp Oil Cures Cancer

I was reading an article this morning titled Spain Study Confirms Hemp Oil Cures Cancer Without Side Effects written by Mark Sircus Ac., OMD. I'm sure most of you have read articles about the use of medical marijuana but sometimes I wonder if it's truly beneficial in the fight against cancer. Can't imagine what it would be like to be high all day; a person would never get anything done. But this isn't the case. It can be taken in small enough doses to make you well, without creating an altered state of mind.

Of course, included in the article is the typical bashing of the opposition. Sometimes it makes you wonder who to believe. It's a fact, that there are things the government doesn't want us to know about. It has been well document that our prime minister Stephen Harper, has been silencing our scientists about speaking out on a number of issues.

The article also mentions a fellow by the name of Rick Simpson. and his video. You can watch it below. The following presentation of RUN FROM THE CURE: The Rick Simpson Story was made possible by Rick Simpson and video producer Christian Laurette... made for free to teach YOU how to heal yourself of disease and illness using cannabinoids.

I can't offer anyone medical advice. I wanted to publish this article to help bring awareness to the issue. I know this topic is already popular with a lot of people, but one more voice can't hurt. If this plant can help cancer victims, then it's time some of these findings were put into practice.

If you're looking for more information , the author of the article, Mark Sircus, mentions a book he has written called Winning the War on Cancer. It is written in an eBook format and costs $39.90. But you can download it and see the book and read the chapter "The Sun - Vitamin D - Cancer" (4.1) before purchasing. He claims it is a must read for cancer patients and doctors alike.
