About AlyJester
Joined May 2014
My name is Aleena. I am married and have two beautiful children. My son is seven, my daughter is one. I am a stay at home mom. I love being able to spend my days with my munchkins, but although my husband has a good job and works very hard, our saving are dwindling. We bought a house about a year ago, soon after our daughter was born. The house we chose was situated comfortably within our price range. However, we never expected some of the additional expenses we have run into so far. The home inspector we paid to check out the house before we agreed to buy it didn’t notice, or didn’t bother to mention, a number of things that needed to be repaired or replaced, or necessities that were completely missing.

I stopped working when our boy was diagnosed with childhood epilepsy. Fortunately, my son has been seizure free without medication for two years and no longer carries the “epileptic” label. Anyway, I was planning on going back to school to become a teacher before I left the work force, and it is sort of a blessing that I didn’t waste all that money on college because I no longer have any desire to be a teacher. Eventually, when my daughter starts school, I will work a “normal” job again. Until then, I have been trying to find a way to earn money from home, or to find a job with a safe environment and management who would allow me to bring my daughter with me, providing I could still do my job with her present. I remember as a child (three or four), sitting in the corner of my mom’s office, playing or coloring silently while she worked. There simply don’t seem to be any jobs like that anymore. I want to raise my kids. When my mom changed jobs, she was never home. Remembering the terrible babysitters I had, and the days I had to stay home alone with no one but the dog to keep me company, I don’t want to do that to my children. I want to be HERE with them. I want to be here FOR them when they need me. I don’t want my kids being raised by teenage babysitters who have a lot of growing up to do themselves.

That’s why I’m here. I joined WA to see if this could finally be what I’ve been looking for. I am new, and haven’t gotten very far into the lessons yet, but I am excited to learn and to create my own website. I have zero experience. I am the lowest rank of beginners. I am not ashamed to tell people that I am “technologically challenged.” I mean, I can barely hook up an HDMI cable on my own! HAHA. If this site works for me, I will be sure to let you all know because if someone can teach me, they can teach ANYONE—really. And hopefully, I will start earning in time. I am so fed up with the scams and the roads leading to nowhere….

I love to read. I love to write. I love learning new things, especially foreign languages. I love to draw. I do NOT love coloring my drawings. I prefer the scratchy lines and shading of my pencil sketches, over some vibrantly colored “masterpiece” with smooth outlines. However, I have recently been helping my mother with her newest project. She has a small photography business. Eventually, I am hoping to be able to use the domain she is working towards acquiring and the logo (which I drew and colored) to create a legit website for her.

I really don’t know anything else to say about myself. I like red, blue, purple, and black? Yellow is ok, but orange is my least favorite color? I don’t think all that is necessary. I have outlined the reasons I am here, and I think that was the point of all this. Hopefully, as I work toward my goals, I will find a few helpful people along the way until, eventually, I am a master who can help others.

Ps. Please excuse any errors or confusing text. I will edit when I have more time. Thanks :]
AlyJester's Goals 3
Money Goals
I am willing to invest as much time as I need to learn all the information offered here to create and manage a brilliant website. :) Right now, I am assuming that IF this is the answer--if I CAN make money from home doing this--I am sure the amount earned at first will be very small. I am ok with that as long as it shows the potential to make a decent amount. A little extra spending money at the end of the month, after bills are paid, would be nice. If I could help to replenish our savings, that would be even better. We will see where this goes. I have run into quite a few scams (knew they were scams before I lost any money on them) and have wasted a lot of time on ideas that had no chance of working. I am skeptical, but optimistic. :) We will just have to wait and see.. We'll see...

Lol. Yeah, I needed that little cat nap. I watched your video.. Loved it! Thanks for sharing that with me. That will really help me in the future. I couldn't read the text though, maybe because I opened the video on my mobile phone. I liked the layout of your site though, is that a premium theme, or did you make it that color on your own? The theme I chose from the starter group gives me an orange and red type color scheme that reminds me of autumn. It's not terrible or anything, but I have been wondering if I'm able to change that.. If not, it's going to look just like everyone else's site who chose that particular theme :/

Plus, being reminded of leaves changing color doesn't relate to my niche at all. I'm working on ideas for drawing something out that will suit it better, but that's really only worth doing if i will eventually be able to change it

Thank you. Kyle, can I really talk to you like this if I need help? I'm doing fine so far, but I'm curious to find out if you are really available to help along the way. I look forward to (hopefully) receiving a reply. Thanks :)

That's awesome! Thank you so much. So far, the lessons have been explaining things very well, although I do find myself having trouble with some of the internet jargon. I'm not technology savvy AT ALL! But I'm pushing on. So far, I'm finding all of this very interesting. I look forward to really getting my website going. I just have to take it slow and make sure I really understand everything. Brilliant work on this program so far. :)

Kyle, this may seem like a silly question, but can you tell me how my ranking on WA has jumped so much over night? I went from something around 200k to 3k.. I'm also wondering if the ranking here has anything at all to do with a Google ranking? What I mean is, as I earn ranking on google, does my WA ranking change? I'm sorry if I should know this already, I may have missed it or not fully understood it if you did talk about this in the lessons..

thanks for your help so far :)

Hello, and thank you. I have found It very easy to get around this site so far, and when I am unsure, it is nice to know I can always return to a previous lesson and reread or watch a video again to help me figure it out. I am looking forward to learning all the information they have to offer here. I will be pleasantly surprised if Wealthy Affiliate finally provides me with an opportunity to make real money at home. :)

Hey, Steve, out of curiosity, if i do the boot camp to promote WA, will people who join through my site be automatically connected to me here, as i was connected with you? I'm only wondering because i don't want to bring people here and let them run blindly. If people join through my site, i want to be able to help them as the community here has already been helping me. (Of course, i have a lot more to master before considering any affiliate programs. I'm still getting stuck here and there lol)
