You probably have seen the banner on the top of my page as well as below in this post, for one of our blog sponsors. Now I’ll be honest up front, I do have an affiliate account and would make a few dollars if you click on that link and made a purchase. I want to be clear on that going forward but I want to tell why I like this program.

I’m not an egghead. I don’t have any real experience in making websites or blogs and writing and tweaking code. I’m just your run of the mill guy with some things on my mind that I would like to say and need a platform to say them.

I was introduced to this program, by a mentor, Lisa Irby, with the 2 create a She talked extensively about it and I thought I would give it a try. Needless to say I like it.

It comes with free trial version so that you can try out the different aspects of the program and see just how easy it is to make up a web site or blog in literally a few minutes. I will warn you, once you tweak the site in the trial version and get it just the way you want, the next step is to export all you hard work and look at the final results. Once I did this, I saw the word, “Trial” all over it. Obviously this isn’t something you should use for your site/blog. I immediately went and ordered my copy of the program and started making a site that looked just like the trial version.

Needless to say I love the site and how easy it is to customize to my liking. I’ve even changed a few things hear and there and made newer versions that I upload to my web host via FTP as a new theme. Next time we’ll talk about a great web-hosting company.

If you’re like me and not a techie by any stretch of the imagination, I would suggest you give it a try. It’s worked wonderfully for me and is no hard to learn.

If you’d like see if it will work for you, click on the banner above and come back soon and let me know what you think.

Take care of each other,

Jeffrey Washington

As of this writing, I’m 43 years old. I have been married to my lovely wife, Amy, for the last 21 years and we have 3 children.

I have been a Police Officer in my hometown of Flint, MI since 1987. As you can imagine over the years I’ve had many assignments. Those areas include, patrol (In my opinion the true core of any police department), community policing, narcotics and vice, detective bureau, Field Training Officer, Courts Officer Liason, etc. I’ve have also served in various temporary assignments including: merit board, Oral examination board and as a background investigator of potential officers.

Over the years I’ve seen a lot of things, some horrific and some exemplary. I hope to share some of the lessons from those experiences here on this blog and future podcasts as well. I don’t bring this information with any notion that I am the all knowing and just here to teach. I am definitely a student of learning and look forward to sharing some of the experiences of readers of this blog and site so that we may learn together from each others vast sources of knowledge and life journeys.

I’m not here specifically to teach others how to get into the field of law enforcement. Although I’ve enjoyed the job immensely,and admire the men and women who wear the shield to protect our towns, states, cities and counties; my passion is really teaching others about personal safety and security, preparedness and survival from my perspective.
