Hello there! I'm a photographer and writer and have always wanted to make a living using these skills. I've been thinking of using the internet for some time but did not know how. I'm excited to meet other entrepreneurs who feel the same way and get going!

Hi Helena,

Welcome to WA and thanks for the follow.

Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!

Hi Carson,

Thank you for the welcome to WA. I am excited to get going and have bought domain names for my site that has the niche of "California". I know this is a broad one but as a Brit living in CA I find that I love to write about and photograph California and it is one of the main reasons that I want to do this site (as well as add to my income from it eventually).

I have a couple of questions. The first is that I cannot seem to find where the comments are that people are posting to me. I get emails in my aol account telling me that WA members have commented but I deleted them all thinking that I would find their comments on my WA page. However, they do not show up in messages. Where are they?

The other question is if I start building my webpage and then decide to change the domain name I started with to another name can I do this?

And finally, which would you use for a domain name - I'd love to get your feedback. I have either CaliforniaLiving or The CaliforniaWebsite?

Hey Helena,

Awesome that you have chosen a niche and are already getting your domain names sorted out.

To answer your questions:

When people post questions to you they will go to your Notifications. You can find your notifications here within WA in two places.

1 - Within the bubble that is next to your picture right at the top right hand side of the page. This is where you'll see replies to your comments etc.

2 - This same notification list is available on the dashboard too by choosing the "Notifications" tab. You can sort your notifications by read or unread and quickly get to the replies and comments that people are leaving you.

Regading changing your domain name, yes you can move your website to a different domain name, but you can't actually "Change" the domain name without buying another one.

"California" is a very broad topic, as is "California Living". Can you tell me more about your niche?

Here are some questions you need answers to:

who is your audience?
what are they looking for?
how can you help them?
what products or services can you offer to help them?

If you have answers to these questions then you have found your niche.

Specifically..."What are they looking for". Be specific because you need to target an audience who knows what they are after.
