About Animate
Joined October 2013
Hi, I'm here to start a new venture, actually, a new ADVENTURE, for I've done nothing like this before. I want to change my current reality to one that maximizes my potential so that I can be all that I can be - and I know that I can be a lot more than I am now. My current reality is fine, I've been very lucky in life, but it is rather 'ho-hum' and I'm wasting precious time. There is so much 'out there' that I want to explore, DO and BECOME.

One reason for wanting to start an online business is that multiple sources of income are great! Money is Freedom and Energy. It will certainly make me, and those close to me, more comfortable, but (the main reason) it will also greatly expand the GOOD I can do. I'd like nothing better than to be a very wealthy Philanthropist, giving away $$$Millions every year to my favourite causes. I especially love animals and I hate the cruelty that many endure at the hands of man, so animals are my main focus. I want to break free from the cage that binds me (and binds most of us) which is the "reality" in which we grew up, our paradigms, our habits - I want to create a new reality by changing my thoughts and focusing on what I want.

My name is Mariette and I live in NSW, Australia, a beautiful, wonderful place! I am so lucky!

Update 26/10/2013
I have now changed my avatar and stepped out of my cage, since that is a reality I definitely do NOT want. My new avatar will be a constant reminder to me.

Thanks Damien, all's well mate. That's the problem, enjoying life and my freedom too much and scattering energy to the 4 winds, not focussing on any-one thing. I do pop into WA from time to time, but it's not high on my agenda atm. My ranking? I decided long ago that it's meaningless (to me), that my time is more important. ;o)
Hope all is well with you, that your bow is fording the swell and the occasional big waves that come and try to swamp every blithe soul.

So nice to hear from you Mariette, & better still, to know that you are cruising along with the current!

All's well here mate, a little more uplugged time needed - Though, planned & written in on the calendar, so stress levels low for this little black duck presently...

(P.s. Love your way with analogies... &, also... What's a ranking?
:D)...
Reply
Animate Premium
Ha ha, aren't analogies great - they convey so much meaning and can be interpreted according to one's situation. 'Cruising along with the current' conveys meaning to me of floating and not achieving, which is comfortable for the body, but not necessarily the soul. I sometimes fight the current heading up-stream, like a salmon, until a bear hits me for six and I end up wounded in the shallows down-stream to recover and gather strength for another sortie, another strategy.

From boats to fish, to unplugged little black ducks - that might give you a clue, Damien. I hope a boat trip and fishing is written on your calendar - should lower the stress level even more!
Reply
Damien Lane Premium
Ohhh, Mariette, you just gave me a fair hearty chuckle ~ Thank you.

Those bears have a great sucker punch in the main - Sometimes helps to zig when the other salmon are zagging - you know this, I'm wasting words here.

If I don't hear from ya in the next month or so (& if I'm still logging in here), I'll drop another fly in the water to see what's on...

Hello Mariette,

Thanks for following me! I look forward to seeing you around here at WA as we all grow and learn together. I have grown from total newbie to where I now feel like I’m on my way to becoming a pro. Let’s continue to learn new things together!

Wonderful website Mariette (also, nice to put a face to your words / thoughts!). I must admit for the wisdom you ooze, I had a mental image of you as a white haired octogenarian. Lovely to see you are here after my (extended) disconnect from all things online & look forward to catching up! Warm regards, Damien.

Animate Premium
Damien! So nice to 'hear' from you! Thank you for your kind words.
I also took some extended leave from WA and I turned off for a while, including my website - nothing new added in yonks, not yet monetized as planned (not important enough?). A massive spam attack on my website, coinciding with phantom referrals on WA*, drew me back into the fold. (*not connected, I'm sure)
I hope all is well with you - disconnecting from the cyber world is not a bad thing, sometimes we need to connect with family and nature, and make contact with the ground and spirit. Wishing you best of health and happiness, Damien. xxxx

A Danish Zoo did put down one of it's giraffes and another is likely to go as well in another zoo. I don't think they'd dare to do it here in Australia.

Thanks for the follow and bless you for the great love for animals that you have. All people should care for the welfare of animals, not only domestic, but also in the wild. Protection and care are our responsibility, how little we even think of it. In your country, as well as in mine (SA), we are fortunate to still have many wild animals, but will our children ? Keep it up and you will attain your worthwhile goals.
Reply
Animate Premium
Thank you, Paolo. I'm glad that you care for animals too. Man, supposedly the most intelligent of species on this planet, can be either so incredibly stupid, or use his superior brain to devise cruel ways of killing animals with no trace of compassion or conscience. I read that lions are now being specially bred so that they can be hunted by 'sportsmen'. It will only be 'sport' when men go hunting unarmed. To get joy from killing a defenceless animal is sick in my opinion. There, I feel better now ;o)

Hi Dave, thanks for following back. I'm interested in genealogy too, and I have a program to construct the tree. 'One day' when I'm not busy, I'd like to construct a website so that different branches can add their bits, information and photos.

Genealogy almost becomes a sickness, doesn't it. I have been working on my genealogy for about twenty years and have gone back to Germany where my German line comes from. It is amazing what you find. Many of my ancestors were executed for witchcraft in Kleinheubach, Germany. My favourite genealogy program is RootsMagic. I have used most others but find this by far the best. I also use my genealogy site to market books via Amazon Widgets. I run a line of books down the right, unused side of my web page and bring in a few dollars that way. Here is the way I do it. Scroll down and check out the right side of the page. Best regards.

BTW, with RootsMagic, the program will allow you to create a complete web site, pictures and all, which you can then upload. Plus, you can use FamilySearch which is connected to the program to search for records. (No, I don't affiliate market RootsMagic) :-)

A quote from Wayne Dyer who I am sure you will have seen on Youtube. This quote is backed up by Quantum Physics in the Double Slit experiment. I come across more and more people when I travel who are now aware that we are living in a kind of Matrix where nothing is as we perceive it to be because our perception is suppressed by fear.
Reply
Animate Premium
Hi David, Yes, I own books by Wayne Dyer. I doubt very much that 'our perception is suppressed by fear' as you say. I have not encountered that anywhere.

Our perception of reality is very much only the tip of the iceberg and is dictated by the culture we grew up in. Some cultures are based on fear, and maybe that is where what you say comes from.

We all have our own reality and we tend to think it is the same for everyone. However, some peoples' realities are vastly different from others. Very few people seem to know that we can change our reality by changing our mind, changing our thinking.

hi there! I really love the way you interact with all the affiliates. am not a premium member yet since am into rationalization of every step. I know so less re IT COMPUTERS and the like so I need to read and understand everything first. I have a lot of ideas that do need executions. online market is growing so fast and I really would like my business to be part of the trend we are now. we are having same thoughts of helping & reaching out financially but, technically speaking I have less to share. Emotional concerns, lifes' perspective, positive outlook I could be somehow of help to the community.

my life is not perfect but I have been through the process of achievements. am happy visiting places and exploring the my country and the world and because of these am now, I may say, prepared to share my thughts and ideas.

am willing to learn and be guided of the lessons as to how the WA system works.

may this be a start of another beginning.

Hi Mariette. I like your new avatar. I'll change mine soon too and get out of my cage, but at the moment I can't think of anything better so puppy will have to represent me.

And I realized that I never answered your question about the puppy. No I wasn't toilet training it at the time. This puppy picture was the first I knew about the puppy. I received an email from my son entitles 'Delilah' (which meant nothing to me) with this photo attached - no explanation.... Went to see my son and the puppy a couple of weeks later - have a few nice photos - and then the puppy grew up, as puppies do. A year and a bit later my son's circumstances changed... long story... and I ended up looking after her. I'll tell you the rest of the story another time or this post will be endlessly long.

Thanks Isabella, it is pretty isn't it? I made it myself using the program Paint, and had fun doing it. First I found a combination of colours I liked and then added the wording I wanted. Have a go and build your own avatar. (Your caged puppy is OK as long as you don't identify with it.) Best wishes!

That's a great idea! Thanks. I was just looking for free avatars but found hardly any that I like. Your colours are great, your words are great and the way you positioned them on the page is beautiful too. Will have a go... you know that imitating someone is the greatest compliment (can't remember who said it)

Go for it! Helpful hint for great colour backgrounds - just Google 'rainbows' or 'arora borealis' - choose, select, copy, crop section you want to keep - easy peasy.

I've changed my avatar, but how do I edit my profile?

Ah ha, now why didn't I see that before - the blue 'Actions' button above the profile - done, profile updated. (I often talk to myself, and answer too. Sometimes I even laugh at my own jokes.)

Hi Animate! Thanks for the follow. Who's that handsome dude trying to chew up the fencing in your avatar?

Thanks for following back. I used to volunteer at the dog pound and this poor staffy was desparate to get out (I took her out for a walk). I must change my avatar - it was symbolic of 'wanting to break free of the cage that binds me' (in my profile). I realised a while ago that if that is how I view myself, then that is how my life will be - self-fulfilling prophesy. Must get to and find another avatar!

I actually like it. To me, it's a symbol of someone who won't give up. I'm looking forward to your new one, though--I enjoy seeing what people come up with for avatars.

Hi Mariette, and thanks for the follow back. Ah, yes, the Central Coast, a great place to relax, break free - I've visited many times. Wishing you every success in creating the new reality you seek. WA is a good place to start making that happen for you. All the best ~Jude

G'day, Mariette - the Aussie contingent is growing! NSW is going through a rough patch at the moment, so I hope you're safe wherever you are. You're a real ball of energy with high ideals and I'll be happy to follow you as you become a multimilliondollar philanthropist. Why not? :) george

Hi George, Thanks for the return follow, and yes it is pretty safe where we are, but some people are having a really hard trot - heartbreaking to lose everything. I saw that you were a fellow Aussie, like Allan below, and how could I not follow you? Porches, lear jets and mansions don't fit into my dreams of wealth - I just want to give it all away to deserving causes. Bill Gates has the right idea. Here's wishing you luck and success with your endeavours!

Hi Mariette,
Hope you are Ok with all those fires around. You take care and hope it all goes well for you all there on the Central Coast. (My elderly father lives in Warnervale and I'm talking to him every day)

Thank you, Allan. There's plenty of bush around here, but no fires yet - Summer has not even started yet, so who knows what lies ahead. I think we're out of harm's way - fingers crossed.

Thank you for the follow - always nice to come across people who love animals and have their welfare as a priority! For the most part, animals have it right - they only attack for food or self defense - humans could learn a lot from them!! Good luck with your WA journey.

Hello Mariette. I just received your comment a few minutes ago on my profile page. Thank you! I used to live at Narara, Gosford around 87-88 ish. Before it was all built up as much as it is now. The Entrance was a beautiful little "village" back in the day with pelicans getting fed every day out on the water. You are living in a beautiful area. We're both animal lovers as well. Small world. I wish you all the best in your endeavours here at WA and if I can help, just ask.

Hi Animate I am very like minded my love for all animals overwhelms other aspects of my life at times! I joined WA last month and I am excited by the program and potential. If I make any serious money I will take care of my family and then try to help the stray street dogs in eastern European countries like Romania. Such a lot of misery and suffering taking place there. Wishing you all the best in your endeavours Jan :)

Hey Carson, Thanks for touching base - very timely! I've just set up my website (finished Lesson 5) but for some reason the Title and Tag line of my site are not appearing on the site although they are showing on the General Settings page, and the URL shows in the address bar. The site says 'Not Found - Apologies, but no results ..... ". I've gone back through Lesson 4, but cannot see where I might have made a mistake. Can you you help me with that, please? You and Kyle have a wonderful site here, I'm enjoying this.

Hi Mariette,

What page on your site says that it's not found? Remember that you need to publish your pages and posts before they are available to be visited. Perhaps you have not clicked Publish yet?

Hi Carson, The issue regarding the missing Title and Tag line on my website has been resoved. The short answer is that after going through Lessons 1-5 again and creating a second website, which worked, I then deleted my first website and started it again. This also had the Title and Tag line missing, so I again deleted it and re-created it using the same theme as the second website which worked. This time, the original website that I wanted is working.
There was nowhere in Lessons 1-5, where the website is created, which said to publish it. But no matter, the issue has been resolved. I am now up to Lesson 8 and will continue on. Thanks Carson!

Hey Mariette,

I'm glad you got things sorted out. You do not start publishing content until lesson 9 where we discuss building your About Me and Privacy pages. Course #2 is all about publishing content, getting ranked, and driving traffic to your site so that you can generate revenue.

Cheers,

Carson

Thanks for the welcome, Kyle, and for the opportunity. I'm very keen to get started, but first I have a lot of learning to do. At this stage I haven't a clue as to what I want to do, or how to do it, but I have no doubt that things will click into place as I go.
