Thank you for following me, I now follow you. Choosing happiness over sadness is very smart. Choosing not to whine is even smarter. Not whining is being civil.

Dennis

CEllington Premium
Yes, I agree - not whining is being civil. :) Speaking of not whining, here's something I read that I think you'll like:

"Don’t whine for it. Grind for it. In life, there will be disappointments, some of which will make you feel like crying. But the best way to bounce back is to dry those tears, pick yourself up and figure out a new way to get to your happy. It will be hard to start again. But know this: You must. When you feel like stopping, remember why you started. It wasn’t to fall flat and hang low with the pigeons. It was to soar and fly high with the eagles. This, you can do." -By Chanda Temple

Hi, Chandra. Had some issues with my computer acting up, but I was finally able to get on your website, read your post, and leave comment. Already following you in WA and Google+, but did a +1 on your post there. Hope this computer doesn't keep acting this way. I'm not using my wireless keyboard now because it apparently didn't like its new batteries any better than the old ones! But at least I got the job done. Carol

Hi, CEllington. Thanks for following me. Followed you back. I use a wireless keyboard and mouse, and they have started acting up. Don't know what's wrong. Changed batteries and it didn't make any difference. Don't know why, but it won't let me click on any of your links. I'm going to see if it'll let me cut and paste them into a search and try to look at your site that way. Otherwise, I guess I'll be taking my computer to the shop, and who knows how long I'll be offline. I will get you followed on Google+ as soon as I am able to do it. Sorry. Carol

Hi ! CEllington
Thank you for following me at this time. Have a very successful and healthy 2018. I do not know how the ranking is figured, I went from 4,000+ to 6,000+ over night.
Reply
CEllington Premium
That is definitely a sign of a system error. I went from 397 on Dec. 19th to 2,970 on Dec. 20th (overnight), after doing the same type of postings. Normally, during last month, my ranking would vary between 391 and 432. I was getting close to being in the top 200 ranking and to have the system change my ranking so drastically out-of-the-norm is very disappointing. I thought the matter was going to be corrected, but it doesn't seem like it will be.

In the future, as our ranking improves, we'll just have to hope that the same thing doesn't happen again.

~Chandra
Reply
CEllington Premium
I just informed Site Support that you had the same drastic change in ranking as I did on the same day (Dec. 19th) and I sent them the link to the message you posted. Hopefully, with the both of us saying the same thing, they will restore our ranking.

Your concept "happiness with civility" is central to what is going on in the world such as miscommunication, escalating emotional speech, and misunderstanding. The people of the world need to take a collective deep beathe, calm down, find new mantras for staying clear headed and polite. Everyone's feelings and words are important.
Whow. I want to understand you. Slow down and what it is it that you want to say?
Best wishes. Go girl go!

Thank you Chandra, thanks for connecting. Please keep in touch. I am concentrating on physiological aspect of human being and building from there as it is saying that without your health you have nothing. My passion is Nutritional Medicine.
Maybe we can exchange some ideas?

Tom
Reply
CEllington Premium
The physiological aspect of human beings is a very interesting area of study. I agree that without our health we have nothing. Nutritional Medicine is a great area to learn about, because we need more people to recommend the types of nutrients we're missing in our bodies rather than recommending pharmaceutical drugs which often times lead to other health problems. Perhaps you and I can post articles on one another websites and exchange ideas, so we can spread information faster.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hi CEllington ,
Thanks a lot for the feedback. This was the very first page website creation in my life. So I was excited and nervous about everything including content. I should have revised it.
Your feedback was great.
But in some places I intentionally left the capitalization for effect.
I have now made the necessary corrections.
Thanks again. .

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
Reply
CEllington Premium
Thanks Kyle. Before signing up with WA, I created a website called "Choose Happiness and Civility." I'd like to keep it. With that in mind, I think my niche is "Choose Happiness" and "Choose Civility." I did a Google Trends search and "Choose Happiness" gets a 100% interest in the US. In addition, the topic "happiness" ranked 100 and queries for "happiness quotes" and "choose happiness quotes" received 100 in other regions (i.e., Philippines, etc.). What are your thoughts?
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "happiness" do you want to help people out with?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
Reply
CEllington Premium
With your suggestion in mind, the aspect of happiness that I want to help people with, is in the area where people have a lot of regrets over the choices they have made, which has resulted in them living a lifestyle that's beneath their potential - myself included (smile). I want to encourage people to enjoy life by "starting where they are, using what they have, and doing what they can" to fulfill their life's purpose. Kyle, what do you think about this specific niche?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, you could head in that direction. It might just be hard to narrow down specifically who your audience is based on the keywords that you will be targeting.

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into a keyword tool like the one here at WA or Jaaxy.com. Hope this helps you out here Chandra!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Chandra !

Pj here - you probably remember me from my site Pure Residuals. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link .

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/pjgermain or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask questions in Live Chat or on the training modules. I think you'll be surprised at how many people want to see you get started on the right foot!

Cheers,
Pj
