For my Son
This is for my Son
Inactive on WA
So, it's been a while. I joined WA in November 2016. I created a few "static" sites for business purposes and never really became a blogger. Time wasn't on my side becuse my specialty food distribution business I left my IT job for took off tremendously and all my extra time went to growing the business. Maybe I just lacked the passion or a good niche. I held on to WA and paid the yearly fee because I strongly believe that even if I don't use the awesome training, forum and tools, the hosting, especially the SSL inclusion is worth keeping my websites on the WA servers. I have a couple of websites still hosted at GoDaddy and believe me the SSL certs are not cheap.
Well, this year I'm pretty much back in full swing on WA. Not really for my own blog, but for my Son.
My kid has been asking me since he was 9 to start a YouTube channel. Since he was developmentally delayed I always worried that people would notice that, although he is a smart boy it takes him a moment to process things. With people being so cruel his father and I decided to have him wait until he's older. We put him off for 4 years. He is now 13, gets straight A's in middle school, is in honors math and honors civics and we were told they want to put him in honors language arts next year. He still processes things slower than his peers, but he's so bright! He's also proven himself to be thick skinned and he has maintained his own personal Instagram account without us having to intervene. Since we are huge foodies we pretty much spawned a baby foodie and my Son wants to be a Chef. Again, he's known this since he was 8 or 9. He asked for 4 years, "Mami, when can I start a YouTube Channel?"
This year I gave in and decided to help him with his first YouTube video and was shocked at how comfortable he was in front of the camera and in front of the stove! So, we created his YouTube Channel, Chef NelSazon R (he created the name himself without my help...so now we have to wait for Google to allow him to update it!). Until then we are also stuck with this long URL...(I removed due to the rules, but can be found in my profile). :)
Once we created the first video I figured it was best for him to have a blog. So, last month I logged back into my WA account, bought a domain and started the creation of my son's blog
which is coming along nicely. Wealthy Affiliate is such an awesome resource.
I'm learning and relearning everything about wordpress at the moment here on WA. All the while learing YouTube, how to work with photography, video, video editing and I'm even diving into Instagram!
I still have my business to run and a family to attend to. Somehow my Son's passion is inspiring me to put in the extra time to do this! So, I'm here for my Son.
Biting the Bullet & Sharing
So far we've only shared his blog and YouTube channel with a few friends and family. I haven't even made the website searchable! WA is the first place I wanted to share with "strangers." WA has made me feel safe with the support that I've received and witnessed here over the years. I think it's safe for me to share my son's work here on WA before sharing with the rest of the world!
If you have it in your heart to subscribe to my Son's YouTube Channel and like his videos it would not only warm my heart, but it makes him so happy!
You can even take it an awesome step further and visit the website and follow him on Instagram.
Thanks for having me back and most of all supporting my Son. :)
P.S. Since my son is not a part of Wealthy Affiliate I am very much open to any critiques on the website here. I need all the help I can get!
