Does This Blogsite Make My Wallet Look Fat?
How to use a WordPress Blogsite to make money, attract clients and gain expert celebrity status
By Sandra De Freitas
“If you need a website that makes you money, attracts clients and generates web traffic – and these days, who doesn’t – this book is a must-read. Sandra will be your WordPress jargon-free Superhero as she walks you through all the steps of setting up your own WordPress blogsite, customizing it and getting Google to notice it!”

I know what you are going through. I used to have a static website that was built with html. I knew how to update it myself and would make changes every now and then. Soon enough I gave up! It was too much work. First you have to find the right file on your computer, make the change, preview your changes, save it, upload it to your website and check that your changes took affect and it’s the way you want it to look. blah! I soon got bored of this and annoyed…don’t you?
When you stop updating your site you tend to promote it less because it doesn’t feel like “you” anymore. You are embarrassed of your site and you don’t want anyone to know that it’s yours! So what happens is the website that is supposed to work for your business is growing virtual cob webs and e-dust. It’s lost in cyberspace left to roll over and die. It’s not working for you anymore is it?
A website just doesn’t cut it anymore. Google and all the other search engines give preference to sites that are:
- updated often
- follow their formatting and structure rules
- have relevant content
- visited by others often
With a blog (web + log) you can take care of the above requirements. Search engines, like Google, give priorities to blogs over traditional websites. Why? Because each time you blog that is considered an update to your site. And when Google sees that your site doesn’t have virtual cob webs and e-dust on it, then it becomes very interested in your content.
Here’s an example for you: When an update is made to a traditional website it takes Google and the others upto 6-8 weeks to recognize and find that content and put it in it’s directory of sites (this is what you access when you perform a search on the web). When a blog post or any other change is made on a blog Google will find and place it into it’s directory within an hour! So would a traditional website or a blog work best to promote your workshop that takes place in 2-3 weeks?
So blogs are pretty cool but let’s take it a step further to be super amazing cool shall we? Great!
A blog is amazing but what if you could have the features of a blog (posts, update on your own when you want and easily?) and the features of a website (static pages such as ‘our services’, ‘our products’, ‘contact us’)? Well you can with a blogsite!
|“I want to pause and say thank you for writing your book. I don’t think I could have created my blog (which I love by the way) without your book. You walked me through the entire process and translated a somewhat complicated platform into a language I could understand. It would have taken me hours upon hours to figure out everything in your book and I would have even less hair than I already do because I would have pulled it out by now. Anyway, I wanted to say a sincere thank you.”
With a blogsite you can . . .
- create static pages such as “our services”, “our products”, “contact us” etc.
- maintain your own website
- blog by posting articles, tips, promotions, etc
- interact with web visitors and start building a relationship with them
- promote your newsletter, services, affiliate programs
- get Google to fall in love with you and your site as it’s built for search engine optimization
- take advantage of social media integration
- add media to your site easily
- easily make your site look good on smart phones
- create and promote revenue streams
“When I finally decided to make the move from a HMTL site to a WordPress blogsite, I knew just who to turn to for help. Sandra’s book “Does This Blogsite Make My Wallet Look Fat?” not only made this process easy to do by following her step-by-step instructions, but also easy to understand the how and why behind making the move so I can now share that with my team as well as my own clients.
Sandra has a unique gift of taking the complexity out of creating a blogsite so that anyone can set up a successful site online, quickly and easily. But what I love most about Sandra and her book is that she infuses it with her wit and humor, which turns a rather dry topic into something quite entertaining. If you’re ready to make the move to a blogsite or if you want to know how to optimize your current site, then get your hands on Sandra’s book today!”

Now there are a few blog services out there to choose from. I’ve tried a number of them out but only one makes my eyes have eyegasms, makes my heart pound and makes me drool as a business owner! This blogging service is not only free (yes I said free), but it is created by a community of experts who believe that everyone should have access to free blogging services. Now doesn’t that feel good to know that someone wants you to succeed on the web and they aren’t going to charge you a million dollars for it?
I’m Sandra De Freitas, a technology coach, internet addict and WordPress obsessor. I was introduced to WordPress years ago but didn’t want to bother learning it because I already had a blog. But I wish someone would have told me how fabulous and flexible it was back then because I missed out for years. Once I gave WordPress a chance I soon became obsessed with learning as much as I could about it. This included researching the 13,000+ free WordPress plugins (think of them as enhancements or accessories for your blog) that are available. I currently have 130 plugins saved on my list as I use them often on my own WordPress sites or on my clients sites.
One tip allowed me to doubly my traffic!
“There are so many useful tips in this book, both for starting your own WordPress blog and for making an existing blog work harder for you. Implementing just one tip allowed me to double traffic to my blog in just three months!”

|“Why would anyone want a traditional (static) website anymore?!
For a non-techie like myself, this book made perfect sense, and I now know I can create my own website with WordPress. I’ve had a traditional website, and am now in the process of not only changing my business, but changing the website. My new interactive website will fit perfectly with my new business direction!
Thanks, Sandra, for writing such an enjoyable book for us non-techies.”

When I speak about WordPress at an event my eyes light up as I get to speak about my passion. There is so much I can offer to the participants in terms of content but most speaking events do not last for weeks! 🙂 The participants of these speaking events enjoy these sessions as I always have them laughing, I do not use technical jargon and because they now see the benefits that WordPress offers to business owners.
