Woocommerce has certainly become a de facto shopping cart solution for WordPress powered websites. The implementation is easy, the plugin itself is free and it is maintained.

Its popularity is so high that so many popular themes are coming with many Woocommerce file templates bundled with the theme package. I have helped many of my clients with Woocommerce implementation on their websites.

However, the moment you realize that you need a little more than what comes bundled with the free Woocommerce plugin, you need to start spending money. The more you ask, the more you pay.

Diwali (or Deepawali) is the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals celebrated by families around the world. It's the festival of lights which literally illumines the country with its brilliance, brightness and dazzles all with its joy

Happy Diwali Message From Kumar Gauraw And The Krishna World Wide Family - Image

Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word Deepavali which literally means "a row of lights." This auspicious day, known as the "festival of lights," is celebrated by Hindus around the world. It historically symbolizes the victory of good over evil and celebrates light and life on both community and personal levels.

According to Wikipedia,

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning is "the awareness of the inner light". The celebration of Diwali as the "victory of good over evil", refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one's true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening comes compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light.

Just because Aweber is popular, it is not necessarily the best email marketing service out there. After being a loyal customer for over 3 years, I finally decided to change my service provider.
Email Marketing Service - Switched From Aweber To GetResponse - Reasons For The Switch Explained
The reason I signed up with Aweber is not that I knew a lot about email marketing. It wasn’t because I knew a whole lot about different companies either. I chose Aweber for my email marketing needs because it was the service so many online marketers were using and recommending.

People told me that Aweber was the “gold standard” in email marketing. And it worked. I was impressed and convinced!

Some of the most successful bloggers started blogging as a hobby. Some of them wanted to document an important phase of their lives. Others wanted to share adventures from travel to business to major life events.
Success demands you have your own products as a blogger
Many started simply to teach others. The point is that most successful bloggers didn’t get into blogging for money. It’s hard to believe that some multi-million dollar revenue blogs started out as small side projects.

It doesn’t happen overnight. I have interviewed many very successful bloggers and several of them shared that the first couple of years were a lot of work with little reward. Their sites have received few visitors if any during the first few months, but they kept writing and churning out content.
