About Cielstar24
Joined December 2017
I am an author who used to compensate my earnings by working as a freelancer who wrote contents and stories for others. I am currently employed as a consumer banking specialist and I really, really want to go back to doing what I love most -- writing. But aside from that, I have often wondered how I would do if I can only learn the secret to owning my own website and earning from it as a home-based mom instead of letting my work go to other websites owned by other people. I am a person who will get burned out from a job after I have learned everything, and it is now happening. I feel that there is so much more to learn in this new virtual world (my personal mission) that could serve me for many, many years to come (Imagine the niches I could come up with and the websites that will take up the time of the gleefully workaholic me); and I would like to become a productive part of it so I can provide more to my family (a personal satisfaction value that brings me euphoria).

Update, 7 days later:

I have upgraded into Premium Membership and is currently writing my review for Wealthy Affiliate to post to a website I created as a result of going through the first phase of the Affiliate Bootcamp. I finished the first Certification Course by the middle of the free first week and have created my first niche website, and while I was still trying to find a way to get through an issue with my Paypal account so I can pay for the first month of the upgrade, I went over to the Bootcamp. I am now on my 2,404th word and still counting. It's a personality trait -- I gotta finish this before I go back to the courses. Plus, I can't go back to the other website and the second Certification Course until i get this review posted. So this review gotta post today, by hook or by crook.

I just want to share, while researching for WA success stories as the dessert to my article (or coffee, for a writer like me finishing dinner always with the laptop on the table), I got overwhelmed with all the successful testimonies, sage advice, and honest-to-goodness-like-talking-to-next-door-neighbor stories. I only plan to choose three, since my content is already long enough. It is going to be a tough. I am not complaining, because I know I will be writing my own WA success story content pretty soon!

Next stop for my update will be for the blog. I had started something when I was sharing my Premium Membership. But it disappeared in the middle of writing. The page went blank, and I got rerouted to the Activity Dashboard. Since I can barely open my eyes during the time, I just stopped and went to bed. Still a work day. I only had a few hours to sleep. But today is a rest day. Tomorrow is Christmas. And it's going to be a great week!

Merry Christmas to you all! Thank you to all who welcomed and have shoot me generous inspiring messages. Blessings to us all for the coming New Year 2018!

Thank you Maricel for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created an informative training tutorial for all New Members that clearly explain the differences between the Certification Course and Affiliate Bootcamp.

I highly recommend that you do not start your WA training doing the Bootcamp. The Certification Course is the BEST option and I explain why in the following tutorial. If you have a few minutes free, give it a read and ask me any questions you may have within the comments section, and I will be happy to give you an answer.

Hi!

Yes, I will surely read your tutorial. I went through the first Certification Course and finished the first ten lessons but my payment method for the subscription was having issues so I started on the Affiliate Bootcamp to have something to do. But, yes, as soon as I get my Premium Membbership I will go back to the Certification Courses and continue.

Thanks for taking time to contact me about it. Have a good one! :)

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Maricel? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Hi, Kyle.

I know! I'm trying to find a way of funding my Paypal since I don't have a credit card. I'm requesting for a friend to send me money through his Paypal and I will just shoot him the conversion in our local currency. Waiting for him to reply and confirm the transaction. I am going to make it before the time is up, Kyle. I do not really want to stop the training!

Thanks for the follow up! You guys are the best! I'll have time to set up a payment for the next subscription next month because I will have time, then. Have a good one!

Hi, Kyle.
Thank you. I was able to get enough fund on my Paypal balance for the payment. It's been a long while since I used it for purchases, I always withdraw to a prepaid card linked to it. Unfortunately, every time I try making a payment thru the Upgrade to Premium link, it will not let me finish without entering card information. When I enter the information to the card linked to my Paypal, the card is rejecting it. Is it possibly because the fund is not on the card but on Paypal? Confused inquiring mind here. I hope you can answer as soon as possible because I only have 4 hours! Thank you again for your help. :D

Hola Maricel!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. Thank you for adding me to your network and I have also added you to mine.

I understand you are a writer and you freelance. Can I see some of your work?

All the best wishes for a speedy accomplishment of your hopes and dreams right here at WAU! You made the right choice to learn from the Best of the Best.

Hi, Keisi!

Those that have been published under my own pen name are mostly written on my domestic language, Filipino. Those that I have written as a freelancer are ghostwritten, whether contents or stories, and I am still experimenting on publishing on my own. I wish I can show them but I never knew on which websites they went after I've let go of them!

I will be surely pushing ahead with self-publishing stories. But for content, I am hoping to use that through websites I will create through Wealthy Affiliate!

Thank you for showing interest in my progress. I really am enjoying my time here. I feel very hopeful. I haven't had time looking over people I would like to observe due to the courses, but I will be. Soon! :)

Hola Maricel!

A published author is a published author no matter what the language. I am glad to hear you will be moving forward as an author. I know there is a lot of moving parts to what we do here at WAU, but please complete all of the Get Started Here lessons as they are designed to help you build your new career on a firm foundation. Once your website is fully functional is the best time to promote, promote and promote some more.

Best regards,

Keisi.

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! :)
