  1. Hi Aliza,

    Excited that I just found a new set of podcasts you have done on iTunes.

    I am thinking of jumping from blogger to wordpress.

    I have written a book on accounting software and need a new website.

    I see that you use wordpress, do you think I should start with the free version or just jump into the paid version?
