My first blog

Last Update: July 11, 2014

Hello to the WA community and all my followers.

This is my first ever attempt at writing a blog. I needed to do it sooner or later so here it is.

I started WA about 1 1/2 months ago. I am disabled and was looking for a purpose in my life. Not so much for the money but I needed to be reliant on myself again. I have always been self employed and have owned a successful business in Florida. After the accident I had to sell the company and went into a huge depression. I thought my life was over. At one point it almost was. I took all my medication I had and thought that was it. Luckily it wasn't. I woke in the hospital after a friend stopped by my house and found me in the state I was in. She was stopping by just to say hi. I owe my life to her!

After moving back home to Massachusetts to be with family, depression hit even harder. I was always a worker and to be sitting around recovering after surgery after surgery was killing me slowly. I read a book called Shock from Kitty Dukakis about the healing power of Electroconvulsive Therapy. Basically shock therapy. I know what some of you are thinking. Its not like it used to be. It saved my life a second time. It was done like any other medical procedure you would go for. Never any pain or side effects. I was starting to get a life back.

After finding WA my life started changing again. I was finding myself happy to communicate with other people going through the building of our websites. I hadn't communicated with anyone but doctors and family for a long time. I was feeling more positive about my situation I was in and could finally see a future again. Did I mention I know nothing about computers never mind knowing nothing about affiliate marketing. But I am happy to be learning them both.

Then it happened!!

I am building two sites at the moment. One is on e-cigs and using them as a tool to quit tobacco products. And the other is on Pyrography. The art of wood burning. I am on level 3-6 in my training and think I am doing OK. I have not been keeping track of my traffic to my sites yet because the way I look at it, if it happens it happens. Then it happened!! I got my first sale off an affiliate link on one of my sites! I just made 30 dollars!! I couldn't believe it. My affiliate link was only up there for two days and BAM! Someone bought one of the products I talked about. Amazing!! Thanks to my first customer!

I just want to end with a shout out to all who helped me make this possible. Everyone who helped me and communicated with me these last 45 days or so, THANK YOU ALL!!

Thank you Kyle, Carson And Steve from Ive tried that. Kyle and Carson have a wonderful thing here at WA and thank you for letting me be a part of it. And thank you Steve for building a site that lead me to WA. Thank you all!!

Have a great day!

Burnzy

cool I'm glad to hear you are doing so much better then me. I wouldn't wish my luck here on anyone after 6 months of this pain! :)
$30 dollars is a lot. I hope it happens again. Something silly and weird though about making money online. Once you make it, seems a dry spell comes along and you do nothing for a while. I have no idea why this works this way, but I've heard many members talk about it.
Let us hope it does not happen to you.
To your Success!
