About AppleofGold
Joined November 2016
I am updating the information below. My partially begun site is https://althealthbizreviews.com .
https://www.facebook.com/Business-223397761463956

I can take any criticism you can dish out! It will most likely not be monetized for awhile. We'll see! You can read the rest of the Bio if you wish. I will have a day job for a very long time and this does cut down on time to devote to creation of the perfect website.

The week of September 3rd, 2017 is a new beginning for me and I hope to return from a long time away from working my sites and completing more of the classwork.

So much for that, October 1st, and I am still recovering from an immunity, stress related illness. Attempting yet another comeback, one obstacle at a time, right?

I am striving for the balance, as are you all! What a wonderful place we have found and I am glad for whoever makes their way here!

Newbies, you will be very happy here! I did index, after a couple of days. This may have taken longer due to deleting the Sample page in the new domain. Leave it there, new friends! I hope you will purchase the domain. It's not expensive. My site indexed, THEN we learn that we need the Google Analytics. THEN we learn to Fetch. Just take the training one step at a time. I have yet to obtain professional guest bloggers and ads, will after I learn how this works. I also have to ad my Social Media links.. I'm hoping to get it rolling soon. It will be an evening and every minute the children are napping project!

Go for the gusto, friends and you will find how supportive WA is and how easy it is to learn here!

I have come from another site which was not set up as well as I would like and asked for a lot more money! I had started the lessons and launched my website. This one has too broad a niche! I may use it in the future. As of November 21st, 2016 I have pulled my old website from another hosting group and changed my profiles in Instagram & Twitter to reflect what is coming from me soon! Huge decision, but easy, after Googling copy writing for Alternative Health. Yes, too large a niche and I have no copy write experience. Someone raised false hopes! Ahem!

First I need to learn more about creating content and offering to host ads and will review for alternative health websites or anyone selling health products, like essential oils.

I am pleased to meet so many mentors and hope to give back in the near future! Any feedback on this would be appreciated. My initial attempt at a new site is up for review! Also, I am working in Level 2! I had an issue with the pesky Blank Page upon Publishing, so ask me how to fix this, if you need help. To those who follow me, I will try to follow back, but have trouble focusing on the less social features of this site. I could chat all day, really! I appreciate all follows and if you are a Newbie, I would try to answer a question for a level I have actually passed!

Good Morning Lynne,

How nice, you accept all constructive criticism, well, here goes. Please put your website and the rest below the posts here on your profile page.
I know the socializing part can take up a lot of one's time but on the other hand, one learns a lot along the way.
I have reduced my following and will publish a WA post on that today.
I always say this to the new people I meet here. In case you need a good source for writing check out my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, many amazing things can be found there.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Regards, Taetske

Hello Lynne,

Is this one of those computer things? I looked and did not see it and now I do. It could very well be me as I am no friend of technical things so they bite back at me.
Will publish shortly.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

Not a computer thing, I see where I could add at the bottom of the posts. I had only added it at the top of my profile! I am very glad you brought this to my attention!

Thanks again!

We are leaning so much, but I have been stuck on Level 3 classwork. I need to figure out how to best monetize. I may have to change my domain name, after already trying to start over. A bit discouraged, I only just got settled after downsizing from an apartment. I have a roommate with whom I am comfortable with, after trying a couple of others, one being temporarily arranged from the start. Meanwhile, hunting for housing and classwork do not go well together! I was temporarily near my daughter to help for the Summer with children. This has left me up in the air, until now. With one month left in my year with WA, I have serious decisions to make. So don't follow too close, lol! I am sure you are hoping to be more on track by 11 months into your classwork than this. I wish you all the success possible in your life and may it bring serenity to you and yours, as well.

I will check out your website, thanks!

See you around,

Lynne

Thank you for following me, Lynette. It's an honor to be connected with someone in the top 500. I hope to join you soon. :)

I checked out your website at https://althealthbizreviews.com & it looks like you have a good thing going there. I can't wait to get my first site up powered by the knowledge on learning here at WA. I have almost 20 years experience and internet marketing helping businesses get found online, so I'm excited to tackle this side of things & I'm excited to be a little ahead of the curb... However I'm still treating this like I'm a total newbie so I don't miss anything. I've followed back, please keep in touch.

I love your user name! Thank you for the following! Reading others blogs is helping me to get more comfortable with writing, and your blog stirs within me a wealth of knowledge that I had forgotten all about! Thank you for this!

My niche is also alternative health, after a few days of searching for way too many broad niches, just this morning I found alternative health. It amazes me that so many people search for this , and not much good content on this issue. So I'm thinking that we hit an "Apple of Gold" in this niche! ? Yes?!!!! The MLM BIZ I'm with has a lot of alternative products to offer, I was just stuck on one aspect! So, I'm looking forward to seeing your page once it's all set up, and learn from you!

Thank you for sharing your blog! And, for the inspiration to expand my mind & heart!

Sincerely,

Karen

Yes, I agree, AppleofG, family comes first and balance is everything. I wish you the best in all you do. I will get to see the website and give you any comments if I can, however, I am a newbie here, so take whatever I say with that in mind. See you around whenever you can make it here.

Thanks and I will comment back on whatever you choose to create! How is it going Chrissy, with the classes? Let me know if you have any questions, but I am making slow progress, as you must have seen in my Bio. I will always try to answer when I am home!

Hi, Lynette. Great to have you within my network. I could chat on here all day too lol

I struggle a bit with writing content as well. I have a number of content resources that I'm learning from right now. I'll get there in time :-)

Wishing you the best!

Hey Lynette,
I thought I saw a reference to AWA somewhere on your profile. I have done a few courses with them, including the Money Making Websites program.

I am confident that WA and the community here will lead me to the promised land. As long as you continue with the training, ask questions, and remain focused everything should unfold as planned.

Your idea of Essential Oils and related natural health products should to well, leveraged by the knowledge gained through WA.

Wishing you well with your endeavours here and best of luck moving forward.

Cheers,
Mark

Hi Apples of Gold,
Thanks for following me. From the looks of your bio, it seems as though you have some experience with running an on line business--even if it has taught you what not to do. as for me, this is a brand new experience. I am willing to learn, though, and I am willing to help. I love the whole idea of community found here. I am very interested in learning more about essential oils, and i would enjoy viewing your site once you get it fully functional. Best wishes on this journey.

Well, I did not get it running, had just completed the website and was taking some classes through a company, but then I found WA, just in time to stop wasting time! The other business would never have gotten off the ground for years. Plus, I was having to take the classes to learn how to create content. This way, I can learn as I go and the focus will not be on the long list of features in marketing which I would have offered, none of which I knew how to do yet. Thanks for the follow and I would try to help you and will at least look at your questions, anytime!

Hello Lynne,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Thanks for following me back. I am to the point of having created 2 pages on my new website, but need to learn how to imbed the adsense and draw the attention of other essential oil sellers, who might want to advertise on my site. The second page is a blog. Have to try again in the morning.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi! I just chose my niche, unless I am still in too broad a niche. I have a website of my own for writing content for Alternative Heath, but because of the lesson I realized I'd need to narrow it. I don't know what to do with my other website, may take it down temporarily, until I actually learn more about all steps in here. So I chose Herbs ~ Essential Oils, [with a side of plants?] Anyway, I will start with just E. Oils. I have seen a great many sellers of oil in my twitter, Instagram and google+ [my AKA] feeds. I have followed many of these people. I did not create a FB account with my AKA, yet. I am not sure how that would work with FB. Do you know about using AKA's? So, for these new websites, the free ones, I will stay with the narrower niche of E. Oils. I may graduate to include herbal teas. [I'm a huge fan of tea!] THEN, in the future, I would like to do something with dance venues. Here in Portland, OR we have SO many places to dance. We already have these venues listed in many areas, FB and a dedicated website, www.dancewirepdx.org/ & www.portlanddancing.com/ ~ SO, I am not sure what I will do with it, but something will turn over in my mind. It's a huge deal with at least the need for content. If you get a minute, please give me your thoughts or further direction for narrowing the niches. Thanks! Gotta run, back later, Lynne

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

And down the road you can definitely be involved in many different niches, it is critical when starting out to focus on just one though (as you don't want to feel overwhelmed).

Thanks! I will rethink my niche.I am working on a very limited budget and will be moving out of my cozy apartment into a family member's home, December 17th. At least they have internet! Their situation is less than ideal for concentration, so I may have to work late hours, which suits me, anyway. I am very determined and encouraged to work hard at this. I have already reviewed a WA member site! Ok, back to work! Working my way back to independence, thanks to you and Carsen with many other supporters here! Good luck on your Black Friday sales, Lynne
