  1. Theodore, you rock! Awesome job! Have you figured out why “The Lazy Dog” link doesn’t work yet? I’ll give you a hint…


    See how it’s looking for the file on your computer?

    You want to substitute:
    file:///C:/Users/Theodore/Documents/Work/the-quick-brown-fox-jumps-over-the-lazy-dog.html for http://www.thejourneytoabetterlife.com/the-quick-brown-fox-jumps-over-the-lazy-dog.html on your index.html file.

    Let me know how that goes for you…

  2. Well ,
    I’ve got a domain and i’ve been playing around with word press and some static web pages.
    The domain is freestuff.co.il and the first idea was to do a blog for freebies in israel but now i have so many ideas im working on several things at once.

    You really helped me alot so far and i hope you’ll help me more 😉
