About Balloons29
Joined December 2016
Tracy is a sassy ex-pat retiree and Mindfulness blogger. I am on a mission to make mad minds mellow. I want to encourage you to taste the benefits of mindful practice and meditation.
Get Action for Happiness's FREE10 Keys for Happier Living for frantic, workbound people and learn how you to enrich and savor all the moments aside from your overbusy life.


I am 66 years old enjoying retirement and actually doing things I wished I could when working. Skydiving was a recent memorable birthday present. A first grandchild, Matilda, has come along. She has taught me many things.
I adore curling up in the sun with a good read. As Grouch Marx famously said,
“A dog is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”
My most recent at the formerly impossible is starting a blog on Mindfulness. Practicing has made a big difference to my life. Mindfulness has proved invaluable during a bout of cancer and several episodes of depression. My blog is laying out my personal account and experiences as well as suggesting ways that ordinary people can engage with mindful techniques and meditation. I am interested in your stories, too. Shared experience is my reason for writing. You can find out more on Facebook at Mindfulness Way to Happiness at https://www.tracyfryer.com.I am a retired teacher enjoying retirement in Scotland. I practice Mindfulness and engage in numerous MOOCs.
I wrote the bit above when I joined all at sea with this blogging business.
Now I love it. It is a game of hide and seek and trying new plugins and making your site look and feel better.

Hello Margaret,♫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 under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

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

Margaret, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Margaret.

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 Kyle -
Here is my chosen niche: Mindfulness for Beginners
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, that could be a direction I am just not sure who your specific audience is. 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. :)

Kyle - How about a niche

Mindfulness for stressed executives
Or
Mindfulness for distressed/depressed housewives

Luckily I am now a Premium member so I can start all over again with new website.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, either or would work fine. Mindfulness would be one aspect you could help these individuals with, but your niche is Stressed Execs or Depressed Housewives and there are many aspects of either one of these niches that you could target and help folks out with.

Hi Kyle,
I just got indexed! My problem at the moment is that I cannot delete text that was already on the Premium theme I chose for my home page, words the maker wrote about how wonderful his theme page is. Surely that has to be deleted by any one wanting to use that page for their own. Can you advise, Kyle?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, you can delete that. If you are referring to a Hello World type of post, you will find that within either your Pages or Posts tab within your back office of your site.
Reply
Balloons29 Premium
Dear Kyle,
Thanks for the advice. However I am speaking about text that appeared on the screen with the theme about 'Pure and Simple when I downloaded it, It is the page as produced by the author of the theme. See attachment. Can you advise?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Under Appearance => Customize you should be able to find the ability to customize that theme there. If you are having issues finding this, let me know what your website URL is and I can investigate for you, but this should be within your theme settings.
