How To Set Up Your Site with Bluehost

OK, this is another blog post you would not normally see on my blog. How to set up your site – an easy step-by-step guide explaining what more you could do with your WordPress.org site by choosing the best web hosting, Bluehost. I am definitely not a tech-savvy person, but don’t worry, this guide has been created with the help of Bluehost professionals.

Recently, I have come across a number of posts by bloggers who have decided to go self-hosted and also use Bluehost. I’ve been considering this step of my blogging journey for some time but honestly, I haven’t mustered up enough courage yet. If you’re not like me and you’re ready to go pro, you may wish to read further.

Cefalù

Cefalù may not be the most well-known tourist destinations but this does not mean that it is not worthy of being seen as one of the best Italian escapes. Even though it is widely regarded on the smaller side of things, Cefalù has a lot of different landscapes to offer and there are a lot of things to see to satisfy every member of the family.

Hello Again from Simply Marina

Hello Again

Hello again, my dear readers!

This is not exactly a blog post – parenting, family, expat or whatsoever. Neither is it a recipe or book review. I just wanted to say ‘Hi again’ to all of you who happen to stop by and read my stuff. Thank you for that, I deeply appreciate it.

If you’ve been wondering where I have been for the last few weeks (and my tiny little ego hopes that some of you have been wondering lol), the answer is quite prosaic – I was at home, our new home. Yeap, we moved home last month. Huge heaps of belongings waiting for me to pack and unpack, organising things, etc., etc. You know how it is, pretty stressful. Even if your new home is not so far away from the previous one. At least, my boy didn’t have to change school. He loves being at that school with his friends, so we thought it would be better for him to keep going there for now.

Family, home, love
