About Bmatson12
Joined November 2017
My name is Betty and I was born and raised in California, though I currently am living in the Pacific Northwest.

I love taking advantage of the beauty of this surrounding area by going on hikes on the many different trails, taking in the beauty of lakes, rivers, mountains, trees, plants, critters....you name it. This is a great place to live.

I am a huge animal lover and am a very proud mom to my dog Zoey. Animal advocacy has always been a passion of mine.

I look forward to enjoying my experience here at Wealth Affiliate!

Hi Betty, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the ever increasing delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I see you have a website up and running. You might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

You should also do some more blogs here on your profile page. These go into Google too so add to your online profile.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com and https://workingonthewildside.com.

As soon as you have a website link here let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Hi Betty,

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I just got back from Mexico.

Hiking and Canyoneering at one time were the loves of my life.

Now that I'm older I still hike, but not a much.

I loved the serenity, beauty, and peacefulness.

Thanks for following me; I'll also follow you.

Best wishes

Hi Betty,

You have just taught me something. I never heard of the Pacific Northwest before but now I know where it is and it's borders. It borders up to the Yukon if correct and I am halfway through a Netflix series on the Yukon called Dominion creek.

And yes it looks a beautiful and a great place to live.

Have you ever tried honey for hibernation? Not sure what plant producing nectars you have up there but if you can let me know what plant species of honey you have I might be able to find out for you. A TRUSTWORTHY beekeeper might provide you with a good honey that you can mix up with warm milk before you go to bed.

Please note the emphasis on TRUSTWORTHY.

Check out this link. It's not my site but I am involved in honey


On another note, before I buzz off, sorry a bit corny, I wish you the best in all aspects of your life and I thank you for following me.

It's great meeting you and Cheers,

DNicholas Premium

Hi Betty, Welcome to WA community and enjoy your learning journey here. Anytime you have question, feel free to raise it and the members here are very helpful. You are blessed with the place you are living now with all the beautiful places. Enjoy your life outdoor and share with us all the happening. I visited SF many times but yet to explore the whole of California. Wish sometimes in my life able to visit more places in USA. It is a great country with many loving places.

Hi! Betty,

Welcome to WA and thank you for following me.

Here I would like to applaud you for making a right decision to join the right Internet program with unparalleled training and member fellowship and support.

Now you can await the coming of success if persistently taking the right actions as instructed in the WA training course and the help from its members, though hard and tough. In reality, there has been no such a program like WA.

To illustrate what I stated and assured above, welcome to peruse few of my WA posts and some contents in my site, www.ebettercare.com, built with WA's WP platform.

If encountering any questions, just ask the WA members, who will surely and timely lend their helping hands.

Here I wish the best for your success to come,

I love animals and am a proud mom of our dog, Ziggy. I look forward to sharing more on WA with you. Cheers! Ninah

Hello Betty,

Thank you for the follow.
Following you back as well.

Are you going to pursue a niche in animal advocacy? Perhaps something about nature. Just curious but you may not have decided that yet. Best of wishes for lasting success regardless of the niche(s) you choose.

Kind regards,

JonBrooks Premium
Hi Betty,

Great to see a fellow native Californian here at WA. I'm still here but we were very close to moving to Bend, OR over the summer.

I hope you find massive success here at WA! You've already identified potential niches to dive into.

Whenever you get stuck on something just reach out to the community for help and you'll typically get a speedy answer. You can also search for someone's blog post about your issue -- chances are high that someone here has already been through a very similar experience.

I hope you get a chance to hike today!

HowardFR Premium
Thanks for following Betty, I appreciate it and am following you back.

I've been with WA for almost a year and as long as you do the work and follow along with the lessons you will be amazed at how much you can learn here.

Let me know if you have any questions, be glad to point you in the right direction.

Good luck,

Wayne66 Premium
Good morning, Betty and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I hope you were able to take advantage of the BF Sale, it's such an amazing deal.

Thanks for adding me to your network and I will do the same.

We are practically neighbors as I live in the southwestern part of British Columbia near Vancouver. As you have probably noticed, my wife and I have 2 best buddies that like to go camping with us.

When we go we go to Beachwood Resort which is in Birch Bay, Washington. Starting to think about and plan a trip that would take us North to someplace where we can see the Northern Lights. Somewhere near Prince George would be nice I think.

Anyway, I hope it's going well so far and I look forward to connecting from time to time.

All the best,

bmatson12 Premium
Thanks Wayne. I look forward to connecting with you as well

Donnie58 Premium
Betty, thanks for the follow and so nice to meet you!

You would get along great with my wife! 7 dogs, 2 cats, and food for three other neighborhood cats. She won't let any animal go hungry nor to the pound that is within vision! We have to hide some of our animals regularly from the possibility of being seen by county animal control. We've already been issued a warning, but it was reversed because they couldn't verify the count! We just had to pay out for a privacy fence to aid the situation! These critters are family, after all!

Soooo....welcome to WA and wishing you the very best of success!

Hi Betty and thanks so much for adding me to your network. It's a pleasure to meet and work with you here at WA. I also love being outdoors and finding beautiful trails and mountain hikes. I am a California guy and love the Eastern Sierra's with all the awesome lakes and streams to explore.

I hope things are going well for you with your online business. Best of luck in all that you do.

Hello Betty and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 380+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Betty! Thank you for following me. I live in Los Angeles for 15 years and traveled up and down the PCH several times. It was very beautiful then and I enjoyed it each time. I look forward coming back again soon and explore Yosemite with rock climbing.

Hi Betty

You have the possibility of a great niche with your interest in hiking and the outdoors!

If you ever get the chance, one nice area to see is Ironwood Michigan. There is a ski slide which is a great place to take pictures from the top in the fall. One of the few areas where you can see three states and two countries! Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota ~ and of course the USA and Canada!

There are also many beautiful waterfalls in the area also, before seeing Lake Superior!

Wishing you success here in WA Betty!

Thanks for the info! Waterfalls are one of my favorite things...ever. I especially love Multnomah Falls that are off I-84 in Oregon on the way from Yakima, WA (where I'm at) to Portland. Stunning views.

Hi Betty, great to have you on board! My beloved son, friend and best dog on earth has passed away many years ago, but I still LOVE and MISS him !! Well now I have an 8 year old daughter, and now she is the LOVE of my life. I also love animals, especially dogs! So WELCOME to WA !! I am guessing that your passion will be your niche...Good LUCK Betty! Tom
bmatson12 Premium
Hi Tom. Thanks for reaching out. I too, have had to say goodbye to my best dog in the whole world a few years ago. That pain never goes away. I am glad you found a new girl to love and be your life. Not having a dog is a hole that can't be filled any other way.

And yes, you hit it right on the head--my niche definitely includes dog lovers!!!

All the best,
miamibeach7 Premium
Great niche! And yes that hole or experience can never be replaced . But its always there with us, and the great memories I have are so precious that someday, somehow we will see them again, the ones we truly LOVED!
If you need help reach to the community or send me a private message. Whatever feels right to you! Tom

Hi, welcome to WA and thank you for the follow. It sounds like you are happy living in the Pacific Northwest. I have never been there I am still stuck in California but not for long. I am in the process of moving to Las Vegas which I'm skeptical about but I have to go because that's where my parents are moving and I want to be close to them. I'm an animal advocate as well, my Dog Bella is a rescue. I liked your site by the way, it is coming along nicely. Anyways, if you ever need anything, just give me a shout and I'll do my best to help you out. I wish you much success!
