  1. O wow, this is a thourough list of things to do!! I have bookmarked it and hope to be able to follow at least a third of them. Do you think even just a tiny part of your instructions could help my articles? Or do I have to follow every step and bullet point?
    When I tried to try out Jaaxy, it asked me to sign up. Is that safe? Can I use it for free or will it ask me to pay afterwards? Sorry, but I am a true beginner and could need some guidance. You seem to know a lot about how to do that and the fact that I found your article proves that!
    Thanks for your help,
