About Blonderain
Joined March 2017
My background is psychiatric social work in child welfare. I believe in the intrinsic goodness of people. All children are inherently good. At times, it is the behavioral choice, NOT the child, that is bad (ie, aggressive, self-injurious). With copious patience, sincere care, authentic rapport and concerned guidance, children can be taught to choose more positive, productive behaviors. In the 12 year course of my career, it has been my experience that this is best accomplished through the liberal addition of humor and creativity in practice. In short, if they know you care, and they're having fun...they learn.

I am also a writer. I have one piece of poetry published and approximately 40 other original works that are in final edits. I've written extensively in every employment setting I've occupied. I have contributed for years to local Open Mic Poetry events and hosted one such outing for a time at a prominent Writers Center. It is extremely second-nature for me to write. I begin each day with lengthy journal entries and am enamored of the crafted word on the page. I find, I work out my issues on paper. Things have a way of coming to resolution through a cathartic, written release.

I have been writing for many decades and began as a child, when I would sleep with a pad and pencil under my pillow, lest I miss a good idea that raced through my mind before sleep. I am currently exploring ways to generate a successful stream of income as a content writer. I love the flexible and portable lifestyle such an enterprise would permit.

I am an avid, amateur photographer. I shot 30,000 stills in two years, mainly nature photographs. I'm fond of my images, many of which capture the resplendent beauty of the Hudson Valley region, wherein I reside. I'm not well-versed in technology and the ways of the internet, but I'm learning. I would like to discover a profitable way to offer some of my images for sale, online.

Music is a passion of mine. I've been playing African hand drums for nearly a decade, and belong to a few groups that gather periodically at various settings. Percussion excites me! All types: tribal music, native american drums, latin jazz, hardcore classic rock. It's a thing that gets in your blood, and moves you.

And then, there's motorcycles! That's a conversation of it's own.

I have been a mother, a daughter, a sibling, a friend...a colleague and a hippie, a confidante and a poet--a biker and an artist...and I remain, a dreamer. I read much about the spiritual realm, as we truly are spirits here, having a human experience. Eager to see what the next phase of life brings...

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Lorraine and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

Hey Lorraine,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Lorraine and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Lorraine! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Lorraine!

Thank you Lorraine for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training, listed under my picture on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I occasionally post a humorous blog on first Sunday of every month. Enjoy!

Hey Kyle, Wrote you separately. Having some computer issues with my pc. Machine keeps seizing. Running it in safe mode now. Spoke with all my service providers today (ie, cable, anti-virus, server)...nobody knows what's wrong. Frustrating. I'll continue to explore tech support tomorrow. I'll be back using the tutorials as soon as that other issue is resolved.
When I do, I would like to take advantage of that first month discounted price. Thanks for checking in. Talk soon. Rain

I love your profile! What a spectacular person you are! I welcome you to WA. I think you found the PERFECT place to build something for yourself, especially without any experience. If you are thinking of selling your photos, you DEFINITELY need to protect them somehow. (I have no idea how.)

Let me know how I can help you along the way!

Hello Amy! That's very gracious, thank you! I am hoping this will be an excellent place to develop an online business...some combination of writing and images. I appreciate your offer to help. It will take me awhile to get up to speed, as regards scope of internet marketing knowledge (I know very little) before I can reciprocate...but as I learn, I'm happy to share what I accrue! Warm regards, Rain

I'm with you in that hope, Amy! I've been reading encouraging stories of success ALL OVER this site! I think it's a matter of choosing a relevant niche, being consistently dedicated, and networking sincerely and aggressively. I love your energy! So looking forward to taking this journey with you. ;} -Rain

Hi Lorraine,

Yes, I got your email and comment on my website as well.
I must say you take quick actions, I have never seen someone completing the profile, typing their bio and going through the first tasks so quickly, love your energy, keep that up and I am sure you will be able to make great use of the knowledge you will find here.

I know it can be a little difficult initially to process all this stuff, but you are already moving too fast compared to the other beginners I have seen, and we are all here to help, assist and answer your queries. All the best!
