"Back in the Saddle Again!

Last Update: January 13, 2020

Thank you team WA!

This morning I was determined to just work on my website training!

What a nice surprise to find I'm back in the

Top 200 rank!!

Needing to share a victory, I'm writing today, before website training.

If you want to join the ranks that lead to Ambassador status, just follow a few of these tips!

  1. Welcome any new members to your network! Read the profiles and send a warm Welcome! Many, like me, came in with angst! Having lost time, money and peace of mind, with past failed web building programs, many may fear another scam. We encourage them for having begun this journey.
  2. Read others profiles and Like and Comment and Follow back.
  3. Ask others to Follow you. Be sure to respond to their personal comments, by liking and clicking to comment. Please sign profile with name, as well as post and comments. We are a group of people, that work, play and network together toward a common goal. Handles are great, but the name makes one become personal. It also "brands" you to WA's community.
  4. Read members WA blogs. Like the article, first!
  5. Join the discussion. Read the comments. Like and Click to comment.
  6. Start writing WA blogs. Remember it's progress, not perfection. My first profile was an embarrassment, but was easily edited as I improved my writing! Members will read your blog, and also like and comment.
  7. Respond to personal message emails. You will be notified by email, any comments to blogs, profile or Private Messages, available if Premium!
  8. Ask questions! The beauty of this wonderful community is the abundance of experience. When confused, there are no stupid questions! Top of the WA page is "Ask a question". Your question will go to the correct "Classroom" and will be answered shortly.
  9. Stay connected to the community. If you're in a creative slump or frustrated, just open another blog, and you'll be inspired, once again. We don't run at peak performance all the time, so expecting that is unrealistic.
  10. Don't quit! We all came here with a dream, and if we persever, we will reach our Vision!

"Don't give up 5 minutes before the miracle!"

Thanks to all of you that responded to my WA affiliate question, just last night!

Amazing folks you are! No 2 ideas were just the same, but I'm sure, WHEN I get to website training, today, I'll be able to find just the right wa to fix my prroblem. Where else can you reach out at midnight and get an answer? Ha!

Thanks, again WA family!!

Have a most productive day...week in your sandbox!

Best success to all in 2020! We off to a fabulous start!!

Barb

Song for the day... "I'm Back in the Saddle, Again!"- Gene Autry (1939)

"I'm back in the saddle again

I'm ridin', I'm loading up my pistol

I'm ridin', I really got a fistful

I'm ridin', I'm shinin' up my saddle

I'm ridin', this snake's gonna rattle!

I'm back in the saddle again!"


If there are errors, today, I've had internet problems, so spellcheck didn't work, and this is my second writing, ... Internet was OFF when I saved first draft... Yes, I was just about to publish. Twice the work, but it's complete!!

I've just logged into your post, Barb. Clearly I'm running a few days behind. Nothing unusual for me!

Anyway, it's a super post and I love that you mentioned 'Back in the Saddle Again'.

I couldn't remember the tune so just logged into Youtube. Wow, how it brings back happy memories hearing Gene Autry again.

What you say about reading the blogs of WA members is great advice, particularly when one is stuck for inspiration😊

Always informative, inspiring and helpful!
During discussions, too, we can all talk at once, and nobody ever screams...Stop interrupting!! LOL
It feels like the good old days of the Sandbox!.
Take one day off, one;s WA email box is scary!!!

Yeah, I love the way we can all talk at once and no-one gets reprimanded!
All the upsides of WA are incredibly wonderful, enjoyable and inspirational. And, as far as that goes, I haven't yet found any downside to WA.
It's all very special )

Hopefully, Valerie, the big downside,,,getting blocked
for recruiting?,... first year, has been the only downside
and that a mistake an opinion, not backed up by Kyle and Carson!
Been smoothe sailing with everyone since!
Lesson learned...

I appreciate all sorts of music! It makes me go to many
places in my memories, and inspires many a post idea.
I have a flip notebook of just title with artist, and year!
I make note of the lesson or idea!
I've thought of putting them all on a spreadsheet, but this is easier, and I just grab it! I have bigger fish to fry!

I'm sorry about that, Barb. That would have been very unpleasant. Not nice at all!
Twice, I had two men verbally bully me. One in regard to comments. He was annoyed with me because I took too long to return the compliment, according to him. The other guy disagreed with something I had written. I 'unfollowed' both those men and haven't had any problems since.

I'm sure it will be all good, Barb, going forward.

I had PM ed a person of very close to me ranking, with the
suggestion that she quit bad mouthing Google in her posts, as we depend on them! LOL
She didn't even read the PM for a month, and it was on!! Ha-haa!
Her high rank? She was one to help people and used her power to smack me down.
Yes, unfollow and block!
One must take constructive critism on occasion. I wasn't even mean about! Hit on raw nerve, but wasn't surprised at her venom!
Squeeze a snake and what do you expect?
I follow this now..."We cease fighting". Ignore the uglies!
Right before Christmas, ... real bummer and while about to launch site!! Big lesson!!

Hi Barb,
I am so looking forward to Jay's webinar Friday! His case studies on authority blogs and websites are right up my alley. I want to be a go-to authority on Fibromyalgia because I've had it since 2016 and the doctors to this day don't know what causes it and there is so information about it, I just want to share what I learned about it. I think I could be an authority on it since I am a Fibromyalgia patient.
See you there!
Joy

Joy, we share what we know!
Become the expert!
I'll be in Detroit in June! We'll have to touch bases!
The one constant of the last year and a half is Jay's Friday night!
I just went to a Meetup for WP. Nobody compares in their live presentations!! We have Gold!!
