So long, it's been good to know you
Last Update: Nov 25, 2016
I’m sad to say that I will be cancelling my WA membership in a couple of days. Not being able to afford the annual membership fee is only a small part of the reason. I know WA is going to get even better, so if I were at all active in working on a website, I would somehow manage to renew.
But I can’t afford to pay for something which I haven’t been working on. I started two websites but did virtually nothing on them. My heart isn’t in it. After working full-time for 20 years, I’m grateful to have a monthly disability benefit so I can wake up whenever I want and lead a relaxing life.
I enjoy keeping active on the computer, but running an online business takes tremendous mental energy, focus, persistence, and determination that I just don’t have. I also don’t have enough passion for one niche to keep writing about it. I’m interested in a great many subjects, and my mind is mercurial, not methodical, so I jump around from interest to interest.
I don’t regret for one second having joined WA. It has been a great experience, and I’ve met so many wonderful, generous people. I’ve learned so much about subjects that can be applied to other endeavors besides affiliate marketing, such as writing articles and reviews. I’ve bookmarked many useful websites such as free image sites. I’ve copied and pasted many blog posts and tutorials into Word documents and have saved them on my computer.
I can’t name everyone I want to thank, it’s not possible, but I particularly want to thank the following members. I’ve made note of your website addresses so I can see what you’re up to in the future. Eddy, for introducing me to WA. Kyle and Carson, for your passion and hard work in creating and continually improving WA. Emma, your friendship and enthusiasm have brightened up my life. Your book will be a success and your website may soon be the top guinea pig site on the internet! Chris, you’ve been an inspiration to me. God bless you and your family. You look healthier than ever; I predict you will live to be 100! Jude, I hope you can find a way to continue in WA. You have inspired us all with your positive outlook. I wish you and your family all the best, and hope for your daughter’s health and happiness. Nathaniell, Marion, and Robert, thanks for your insightful tutorials. Lisa (Ecowarrior), best wishes for your continued good health. Violet, I admire your passion for helping girls and women. In the 1990s, a wise man said that the 21st century will be the Century of Africa; this prediction is coming true because of people like you. Sonia and Pat, thank you for your inspiring posts. Jimbo and Surfdude, hang in there! Dave, you haven’t been active in a long time, but I want to tell you how much I appreciate your encouragement. Joseph, you haven't been active lately either. I admire your great courage and your work helping people in Lebanon. I hope you're well; best wishes for the future.
If anyone wants to stay in touch, pm me before Saturday 11/26 12 noon Pacific time (California). I had my e-mail address in this message (as Jude had put in her farewell message) but I got a notification in my e-mail about a suspicious login so it could have been some lurking spammer who is not a real member. I tried to change my e-mail password but it didn't work (Microsoft is supposed to send you a security code but they didn't).
Happy Thanksgiving to all, Amanda
