“The Journey Begins: Step-by-Step Preparation for Beginning the Writer’s Journey” People often say, “It’s not how you start; it’s how you finish that counts.” The problem is, you can’t finish what you don’t start! So many talented writers never achieved their dream of finishing a book, simply because they never learned how to get started. […]

Avoiding Misdirection: Stay on the “Write” Path; Don’t Gamble with Google (or GoDaddy)
Confusing headline? Not as confusing as reports that some links to Write2Ignite’s website have taken visitors to a casino website! We’ve checked and rechecked our website Write2Ignite.com and internal links. We’ve since found a few links that connect to the casino website.
We’ve uncovered two possible explanations: either a problem with Google analytics, which is redirecting visitors to what Google believes is the W2I website, or a problem with GoDaddy, the host site for our web domain. Our webmaster and other Team members continue to investigate, with some help from tech-savvy family members.
While we can’t immediately resolve the problem and prevent all misdirection, we’re alerting you, our faithful readers and visitors, to the situation.
Here’s some help in the meantime. Unfortunately, if you type “Write2Ignite” into your browser and click a link that arises in the search results, you’re likely to reach the casino. It’s important to type “Write2Ignite.com” in your browser’s address bar for a search or web address navigation.
Please bear with us as we attempt to stop this misdirection. We appreciate your comments reporting any such errors, so that we can remain aware and alert to communication problems. Like Christian, our protagonist in Pilgrim’s Progress, we want to stay on the right path and help others avoid losing their way as well!
Remember to check out our weekly giveaways! You can win great prizes by commenting on this website or on our social media (the Write2Ignite Conference page on Facebook, the Write2Ignite group on Facebook, and Twitter [@write2ignite]). Check our giveaway posts for guidelines on what we’re looking for.
