Spend less, Earn More, and Save as much as possible!

I am quite impressed with David Ning from

MoneyNing talks about all of the concepts that I’d like to incorporate into; Stocks, Investing, Early Retirement, mortgages, and achieving financial freedom. From what I see, it looks like he does use some affiliate marketing for some of his postings. What I find most impressive is the instant response that he gets from each of his postings. It must be such a great feeling to know that you have such an active audience out there. I aim to have the same results in due time.

I have some great articles coming soon for Frugal Francis so sit tight while I get it all together. In the meantime feel free to check out MoneyNing and let me know what you think.

As I mentioned in my first post, I found a very easy way to install WordPress and become part of the blogging community. In the past I installed wordpress manually and ran the install script and it worked fine but I found this rather cumbersome and time consuming.

Recently, I googled “what is the best webhost for wordpress” and based on my research I found a company called bluehost. Blue host is great because they offer 1 click auto install for WordPress. It is really as simple as signing up for a hosting account and then clicking 1 button and BAM! you have your own custom installed WordPress site. I found using bluehost, the easiest way to enter the blogosphere and have my own custom WordPress site.

Here is a bit more information about their value adds and product offering:
“WordPress Auto-Install — new WordPress updates are made available within 24 hours! Unlimited disk storage, Unlimited monthly data transfer, host unlimited domains on 1 account, 1 free domain name for as long as you host with BlueHost, 2500 POP / WebMail addresses, 50 MySQL databases, free control panel, free Fantastico, free SimpleScripts, 24/7 network monitoring, 99% uptime guarantee, mirrored storage backups, no hidden fees, voted best support in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008!”

Well, first and foremost, Hello World!

Yes, I did it, I put together a custom installed WordPress blog and it was really freakin’ easy to do so.   In the past, I fiddled with installing WordPress by putting on an ftp server and running the install script, and while I was able to do it, I found it cumbersome and time-consuming.  I will be sure to follow up a bit more about how easy this is to do in my next posting…
