About CBKitten
Joined May 2015
Born in Ohio, raised in Chicago, call Galveston, TX my home and spending my golden years in Arizona. If you ask me, that is a fairly well-rounded background. Notice, if you will, that after becoming of age, the places I choose to live were in the warmer climates. When I didn't have much of a say in the matter, I was "stuck" in the cold! Of course, nobody did ask me, did they?

Speaking of well-rounded... .after driving a semi across the country (USA) for thirty years, you can't get much more well-rounded than that. The sedentary lifestyle causes roundness in places you would not necessarily want to become round.The first ten years were like, "Pinch me, I'm dreaming! This job is just too good to be true." The second ten years were of the mindset, "I can take it or leave it." The last decade had me thinking, "Get me out of here while I still have some fond memories left!"

It is nice to have this opportunity to introduce myself and be a member of this vital/viral community. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to supply and feel free to call me anytime you may have a problem that you think I may be able to help you solve. I am friendly and play well with others.

Hi! Harry,

Thanks for stopping by and responding. Yes, my life has been blessed. One of the most important gifts I have been given is that of good health. I keep a positive outlook on life. Many times people, especially those close to me, have told me I'm not very realistic. I just tell them, "It's comfortable here behind these rose colored glasses, so please don't ask me to take them off!"

Please feel free to use the comment I put in your post about not allowing anyone to make you feel guilty or unworthy, since they need your permission, which you don't need to give them. Use them in any way you wish, since I can not take full claim to them, but my sources are currently "Unknown." Your graphics are great and I know you can do a dynamite job of making something like that stand out, just like the rest of your inspirations.

Hello Chris ... thank you for the follow. Wow from too cold to enjoy your life to too hot enjoy it ... really, but I'm referring to the Phoenix area. My opinion of course ... from a Northern CA lifer who would rather fight than switch as they say. To each his own ... also as they say.

The WA process is a great way to keep yourself engaged during those golden years. You know ... use it or lose it. And with just a little focus and determination it could become profitable as well.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

I missed you, but I'm finally back. Had to go to civil court (twice) for not keeping the lawn mowed and having tree stumps. Still have one more continuance hearing on 02/12/16. Giving the front lawn an entire make-over and still working on it. Should be maintenance free shortly.

Four years of drought conditions in CA, have pretty much made lawns history. I've changed everything to low maintenance ground cover. It's a lot easier to maintain, but is heaven for neighborhood cats.

CBKitten Premium
From what I hear, you are getting plenty of rain this season. How is that going? No mud slides, I hope?

We will now have a gravel lawn with some larger decorative rocks on the perimeter and sandstone stepping stones to walk on. Around the trees will be some kind of mulch (I'm thinking wood chips, but have not made the purchase yet.) I recently learned about watering trees as far out as the drip line (where the branches reach to) rather than closer to the trunk. This was something I had been totally unaware of all these years. I'm making a big deal out of it, since it is something I wish to embed in my memory.

NWTDennis Premium
We've been getting what feels like a lot of rain, but we're still behind last year (a drought year) year to date. Fortunately it hasn't been coming in buckets which would definitely cause mud slides in So. CA and over in Lake County here in No. CA (from the ferocious fires there last summer).

Yep, Hope it comes slow and steady, to keep from getting a catastrophe. I think I'll start my blog now. I asked a question 7 hours ago, but it got buried in the long list. I should have sent a personal message to one of the founders, which I may still go ahead and do first. If all goes well, everyone will be encouraged to go to Web Of Trust <www.mywot.com> to put in a good word for this site. Currently it has a yellow light (meaning caution), which is not what it deserves.

I really liked your rant, I mean post. I am of similar thinking. Somehow, I feel the need to keep it to myself most of the time, since being noticed may cause trouble with the greed mongers. One person by themselves may get squashed, but collectively we can make a difference, even if it's just a little at a time. After reading the book "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" by John Perkins was the first time my eyes were opened to these atrocities happening in the world around us. If you have not read it, you can probably find it at your local library.

Thanks CBKitten, This is basically I see things myself, only that I am old enough to not worry about reprisals. I had a few in my days by now. I thrive on rednecks and people with closed minds (really the same thing, isn't it). I will check if that book is available on Kindle. I have problems reading print on paper and it takes me two month to read the average book. But I have suggestion for a book for you, or two, or three:
1) How I Beat Satan by Mark Emery
2) One Freeman's War by Mark Emery
3) Babylon Banksters I am not sure who wrote that,

This should give you a much deeper insight into our present monetary system and how corrupt it has become.
It is what I am trying to fight. I got onto it through a man called Michael Tellinger who I met personally. He is the founder of the UBUNTU Party in South Africa and an amazing scientist, working on the stone circles in South Farica which again explain the origin of mankind. I could go on and on here but won't for respect to the other less interested members. If you want to know mor abut this theme, please drop me a PERSONAL note and we go from there.
Thanks for your interest and hope talking to you soon.

I have put these titles in my calendar and will look for them the next time I'm at the library. The librarians will be surprised to see me there doing something other than going online to print forms, which I used for my business that is winding down now, due to not having a reliable vehicle. I can make it online and get the car fixed whenever the timing is right. In the meantime, my patience (which I have in abundance) will be put to the test. If I have any questions about the subject matter on these books, I will get back to you. Thanks for the feedback and the quick response. Wishing you all the best. Thanks for being my friend.

I have no doubt in the world that this is the best place in cyberspace to learn about Internet Marketing. Otherwise, I would not have paid my dues for the last nine months if I had no faith in the program. I have been online trying to eke out a living for almost ten years now. About five years ago, I ran across a site that showed me almost everything I was trying to promote (at that time) had shady and/or questionable ratings in their dealings with the general public. That site is called Web Of Trust. You can find it at www.mywot.com.

Here is my question. How can I go about begging our fellow members to visit this site and put in a good word for Wealthy Affiliate without breaking the guidelines in the membership area? Before reading the rules here, I intended to put this in my first blog entry, but now I'm not sure that is permissible.

I refuse to promote anything that has less than a green light, even though I realize there are extenuating circumstances that could cause a site to have an orange or yellow light. I just don't want to confuse folks when trying to explain it and do not wish to bend my self-set standards. There is no reason for us to have a yellow light and this should be easily remedied with the help of our current membership base.

As soon as we get up to green, I will be promoting my arse off.

There are plenty of good reviews of WA out there already and the best thing you can do is if you are loving your experience here at WA, is to put the word out yourself within the platforms/forums/sites out there like this. Many people are doing this.

We don't allow any promotions here, albeit this one for a very good cause...just because things can spin out of control when we allow a few things like this (others will get the wrong impression and start promoting things).

Thanks for your kind words and I really do look forward to working with you!

Unfortunately WA has really strict rules about promoting other programs here, so I'm not sure if there's any way you can really "beg" members here to visit the site without breaking the rules, at least within the community.

You're welcome to promote or share outside of WA, so if you wanted to write a blog about this on your own website, then share that on social networks you could do that.

I'm confused though, is this "yellow light" given to WA or to WOT?

If YOU know WA is the place to be for internet marketing, it shouldn't matter what others on another forum think. You can promote whatever you want on your own website and can find plenty of people outside of WOT to promote to.

Hi! Wendy,

I would say "Good Morning!" but just because it's morning where I am, does not necessarily mean it's morning where you are. I have some huge plans for learning (and helping out) on this site. My problem WAS finding the time (rather than the money) to do this. That table has turned 360 degrees in less than a month. As soon as I finish up some loose ends with my previous career, I will have all kind of time and much less money. That seems to be the same scenario I have noticed from most people here. I will help to show them that perseverance, along with some creative thinking will help to pull them through! Together, we can do much more than we can accomplish alone. I know I am truly blessed to be a part of this community. The old "paid for" pick up truck in the driveway has water in the oil. I will not be driving it until it can be fixed. I will be spending this week finishing the work I already committed to by riding public transit (and walking some, which is no longer my strong suit!). After that, I will have all kinds of free time.

Good morning to you too... (well it's actually evening here at the moment) ... :) Yeah it sort of is a catch 22 for a lot of people, either they have the money and no time, or have the time but no money.. but sometimes you just have to find a way to make it work. Personally I didn't have much money when I first started but I prioritized and paying for my online business was definitely something I just had to do. I can tell you that dedication,hard work and the ability to take critiscm and ask for help when you need it is truly is the key to being successful with this business.

Good luck with everything and I'm always around if you need a hand.

Six months to tie up the loose ends to my previous business. Well not quite, I was/am addicted to finding work online and could not stop accepting assignments for more jobs. After taking at least six months on the bike and the public transportation system, I only lost 12 to 15 pounds. As someone on the bus pointed out, I probably would have gained at least 10 pounds during that amount of time if I had not been doing what I was doing, so I must have "saved" myself about 25 pounds. Funny how there are so many different ways to see things.

In those six months, I have come to realize that the public transit system is slow and not always reliable. There is no way I will make enough cash to get my car fixed by doing that, but I gave it my best shot, have been patient and learned something along the way (though not as much as I could have if I had been working WA).

Even though I have overdrawn on my bank account by making these payments for the last two months, I have not been tempted to drop out. I know this is a great program and plan to stick with it. That addiction will come in real handy once my focus is diverted to this site. I just have to figure out how to do that comfortably. Working on it and almost there. Sorry I missed the Black Friday Deal, maybe next year.
I'm not really asking for any help here, just wanted to give you an update.
