    that is odd, I wrote it up in Open Office and it had none of those issues, going to go through it manually and change now.

    How embarrassing!

    It was simply a joke, I guess the answer is yes. I would fix it, as there is nothing more annoying to me when one of my keys goes dodgy and you read back though one of your articles and it is a mess. The "R" seems to be a bit broke on my laptop.

    Would have just annoyed me though, think I got most of it. Also annoyed with myself for "banks" in the title, should have been "banked", but can't work out how to change it.

    Obviously been too long since I did freelance writing work, I seem to have forgotten the basics of editing one's own work!

    When my daughter was 7 months old, all I wanted to do in my free time was sleep. Good luck in your journey, I'm pulling for you

    Your last post is interesting. I personally tell myself I would never want children, but it is inspiring to see how much having a child can drive one to find motivation to push through and work harder than usual for the sake of giving them a better life.

    I will be following your journey, good luck!

    Didn't get a chance to post an update yesterday and bhw is fire walled in work so will keep this brief from my mobile. Spent all last night wrestling with CSS and HTML, but finally have the site looking like I want it to.

    shattered now as was up till 11 (I know many of you start work then but ask any one with children what time they went to bed when the kid was 7 months) and my boy decided to wake up every 90 mins or so.

    Plan today is to get 3 more articles up, and speak to a telephone answering service to set up a number and some one who can take a lead message down. Also need to order a logo from fiverr

    It's amazing how motivated you become once a child is involved. Well, when battling through a haze of sleep fog anyway.

    Having a child is no picnic; but you know all those parents that say "you never know how much you can love someone until you have a child" and you always half thought were just saying it because they should? Turns out they weren't making it up.

    I love my wife to pieces, but there is nothing like the unconditional love you have for your child to help you want a better life for them.

    Sorry, all a wee bit soppy there. Normal service shall be resumed...

    Small update as currant typing this on the tablet with my son asleep on my chest.

    *now at 8 on site articles
    *linked to a blog post from a new hubpages hub (my profile has pr 3, need laptop to check other metrics)
    *site finally indexed in Google. Nowhere to be found for main keyword. Best is 172 for the keyword linked to in hubpages

    Going to get 2 more articles up, and spend free time today looking for likely domains for a pbn.

    Good luck mate! Interesting lead Gen process. I was wondering how will you sell these leads? If you could elaborate I would be grateful!
