About BetsyB
Joined January 2015
I am a SAHM of 2 from Texas. I am looking for a way to earn some extra money while staying flexible around the kids activities and school hours.

My best friend keeps telling me i need to start a blog. I have tried about 5 times in the last 7 years. I didn't know what I was doing and I personally thought my websites looked bad. But I think my biggest fear was judgment.
I didn't want people to think I was crazy for my beliefs or that I was a bad writer. I am trying to let go of these fears and really give this a try for at least a year.

Betsy your story sounds so familiar. I built a website 5 years ago and let it sit dormant. I recently transferred it to WA and I can honestly say I feel more confident this time around. The community is awesome; no question has gone unanswered so far. Well this time around I am just happy there are so many supporters to bounce my ideas off and ask for help. PS: I never told my family outside my home I wrote articles for the internet or had my own website. So funny...I did last night. Thanks WA for the increase confidence. Betsy you will too gain that confidence. Welcome to WA...see you in the community.

Hi Betsy,

Welcome to WA and thanks for the follow. Fear of judgement has held a lot of people back. You are one unique individual who has a right to opinions of her own. We all see things a bit differently at times. That does not mean that different is bad. This would be a sad, dull lonely world if we were all alike. Isn't that right? You probably have some things that need to be shared....so go for it. My best wishes to you. Take care.

Hi Betsy, I understand your fears. It took me a lot just to write a few sentences about me, putting a photo was a nightmare.
And if I may, hoping not to be understood wrongly, I agree with what nicebiz (Jewel) writes. Best luck and thanks. Jovo

Hello Betsy...I think many of us have the same issue of being to judge mental of ourselves. I know many times that I feel the same way...even in my photography that I have been doing for a few years. However, what I have learned here at WA...don't worry about it. Just get started..you will find a lot of support here..including myself. Best of luck.

Hey Betsy!

Just wanted to run something by you, in case you didn't know, so you won't miss out on anything here..

There's 1 day left for you to get a 59% discount on Premium. I highly recommend this for you. I think it'd be a great move! But, it's optional.

Cheers!

Betsy!! I noticed you set up your profile completely. SWEET!!! You're definitely on the right track!

Hey Betsy, great to have you here. I felt the same way when I was starting out, looking for an opportunity to supplement my income and it turned out to be MUCH more (been at this 3 years full time now and wouldn't change it for the world).

To be honest with you, there is no better way to build a business or create significant success than within the online world and you have absolutely everything you need here at WA to do this (including the support from me directly).

Just thought I would pop in and say hi and simply drop me a reply if you need a hand with anything moving forward.
