Gardens4u website revised and updated

Check.   Another job on my list completed…

My business website GARDENS4U has recently been revised using a different theme and color scheme.  It has also been updated with pictures from last season.

My to-do list is getting shorter and the days are getting longer.  That means I should be able to get out into my gardens soon (I hope) before I turn into this lady…




It would be greatly appreciated if you would check out the website and tell me what you think!


Rock on Andrew Waines!



Andrew Waines is a young man moving up quickly in the music world, currently focused on the soft rock/blues genre as a solo artist.  Andrew was one of my youngest son’s best friends in grade school here in Kanata (west end of Ottawa) until Andrew and his family moved from our neighborhood.

Andrew’s mom and I are friends on Facebook  which has been instrumental (pun intended) in allowing us to follow our children’s (her four and my three) endeavors. When I heard of Andrew’s success and amazing progress in the music industry, I was thrilled for him, but not really surprised as he was always the kind of kid that excelled in any of his pursuits.

Please check out these links to Andrew’s official website, Youtube channel, and Facebook page to discover just how talented he is!

If you haven’t checked out my business website GARDENS4U  recently or at all yet, please do so and let me know what you think.  It has just been updated with the pictures I took last season and I would love your opinion, comments and suggestions.  I know many of you are website and photographic geniuses; I am neither of those but am always looking to improve!


How to Build a Website

The best way for an inexperienced person to build a website is to find someone else’s website that is specifically designed to build websites.  Kind of like a website for dummies approach; these sites offer simple, straightforward advice and instructions that even the most computer illiterate people can follow.  These kinds of website advisors can be found easily online and are great because they do most of the work; all that is required is the unique and specific information and or supplies to promote.

There are many such websites designed and committed to building websites for others.  They have experienced employees that can offer valuable online support to advise and guide even the most inexperienced and novice person through the steps of building a website, regardless of what the website is to be used for.

Some companies provide a free domain name, if not they will tell you how to find one that is available for use.   The domain name will be the URL or address for your new website.  Finding and paying for an available domain name is one less crucial thing to think about in the process of building a website.   A good, unique, catchy URL is important since it will draw people to and make them remember the website.

Other things covered in their price making the process even simpler are spam filters, analytic tools, tutorials, templates, troubleshooting and  reliable service.  Prices may vary depending on many ongoing discounts and promotions offered as well as the length of the contract period selected.  When a contract is signed, rates are usually charged on a monthly basis.

If advertising is desired on the new website, these companies usually provide some free credit through the services of Google, Yahoo and Facebook.  This is beneficial if the website is to be used to make money.  An online store is also usually available permitting clients to purchase products sold.  A free shopping cart for clients and use of PayPal is usually also available to enhance the shopping experience on the website.

To create a website fast, easily and inexpensively, find a company online to help you.   Your new website will be up and running in no time providing the desired worldwide exposure.  Support staff will also provide ongoing advice to help to keep the website running smoothly.  It is so easy, even I managed to build one for my new landscaping business called Gardens4u
