Learning How to use my MacBook

Just a few weeks ago I bought myself a MacBook for Christmas.  It was a bold move for a guy that only used Windows computers, but after being frustrated with Windows 10, I thought it was time for a change.  I used my Christmas bonus to buy the computer and while I turned it on …

Learning About WordPress Plugins
