STILL Going down the "Rabbit Hole" seems like.

Last Update: March 21, 2017

UPDATE on March 21st 2017 FROM MY OCTOBER 2016 BLOG POST

STILL GOING DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE ---- one tiny step that I do here at WA leads me to learn 3 more things or sign up for another affiliate program, but that leads me to sign up for something else, then I have to download something to be a part of that affiliate program or whatever, and now I have forgotten what I started doing, - posting once a week AT LEAST on my website here at WA, but now I feel more CONFUSED than ever!!

And more afraid of what I DO NOT understand STILL here at WEALTHY AFFILIATE!!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Soooooo - I'm going through training on this site, and I REALLY want to get my first sale BEFORE 2016 is over - since I have been with WA since LAST OCTOBER 6TH, 2015, when I began this journey - and I have listened to webinars, and read the certification class level info.....

But it seems the more I learn about one aspect of affiliate, the more I go down "the rabbit hole" in THAT area: "go to this site and sign up for your free affiliate account" - so I go THERE, and then there is a free book to sign up for to help me learn more about affiliate marketing, and it says to go sign up for such and such, so I go there and sign up for such and such...... etc, etc, etc.....

Am I the ONLY one who goes through that? One step leads me to 4 more steps to learn, and then I try to learn from THOSE 4 steps, EACH wanting me to go through more steps EACH - which is now TWELVE steps to learn, and I am ONLY ON STEP ONE........ Does that make sense? Hope so - and I hope I'm not the only one going through that.......

But I AM feeling more confident that I CAN add content to my retirement site over the next 3 months, and train more about advertising on Facebook and Pinterest (don't know about THAT site yet!!) or wherever else the WA gurus say to advertise......

So I have to bring MYSELF out of the "rabbit hole" MYSELF, and keep moving forward one step at a time, and see which way works and which way doesn't and GO FROM THERE.......

I have learned to pace myself. And just take one step or one lesson at a time. That has helped me not to feel overwhelmed. There is a lot to learn but what works for me is just to take it one lesson at a time.

I have had to learn to decide on what I want to concentrate because there is so much to learn. My sites may not be as exciting as some, but I am please with progress.

Try to just stick to the training here for the time being, asking questions when necessary, otherwise there is a danger of feeling overwhelmed :)

OK thanks - but the training leads over places too, and I WISH I could learn faster, but doesn't seem to sink in as fast for me as apparently others, like YOURSELF...... thanks for helping me too!!

Hello Amanda, so long as it is free and you are learning, I would not worry too much. This is a whole new world to a lot of us. When I was in the Corporate world, if I had a problem with my computer I would call IT and they would come and fix it. The nice thing about Wealthy Affiliate (WA), is we have a bigger IT community. If we have a problem or do not understand we can call on them to help us solve it. Hang in there, sometimes it takes a while to see light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks Harvey - there is NO ONE to help me in person except myself, and I KNOW I can seek out assistance over posts from all of you AWESOME PEOPLE IN WA....... so I have to be the one to ASK for help, and I get help when I need it!! THANKS!!

Maybe you can dig another hole in a new direction upward rather than backtracking your original descent.
