  1. Good day, Mr Steve. I have gone through your lessons (not all tho). And I have a few questions.
    1. Can all these creatings be carried out on a smartphone?
    2. Can I install word press and do all the editing before hosting the site?
    3. Now imaging I own a business and I want a website for it and some where in the website I need to have an interactive blog where customers can post comments on services they recieve. Can I achieve that with the instruction on this tutorials.
    I will leave it at that for now. In anticipation for answers from you thank you.
    And less I forget this oasdom is really a magnificent idea God bless you for this. Thank you.

    • Hi Collins, thanks for you comment.
      Making posts on your devices is possible (not as easy on pc anyway), but setting up your blog? I’ve never done that on tabs or smartphones.
      Installing wordpress and doing the editing before hosting your site? Nope. Your blog/site can’t be accessible if it is not hosted. Hosting fee is like you’re paying a rent to be able to make your blog usable by you and your blog visitors.
      Your business website can have a blog feature. All you need to do is create a blog page and enable comments on that page
