Hi! My name is Claudia Blanton, and I am an Author, Blogger, Designer and Homeschooling Parent and Serial Entrepreneur.
I have been working online in various forms for over 9 years, with experiences in selling on Etsy, Amazon FBA, eCommerce, and via Print On Demand Sites such as Zazzle and RedBubble. I am an accomplished digital artist, with my pieces sold as far as the UK, and as close as Las Vegas.
With a blogging experience of 5 years and a coaching/teaching experience of more than 14 years, I am not new to the world of business or online marketing.

I am here on Wealthy Affiliate to take advantage of the high-quality hosting, as well as the community. The world of business and online marketing can be a lonely one, and Wealthy Affiliate is a wonderful example of a community, that allows the power of peer support aid new and experienced marketers.

It is a community, I am proud to be a part of.

If you are new here to Wealthy Affiliate, welcome! I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

Fiercely Independent Blessings!

Claudia

Hi Sarah, those are hard-won experiences based on the willingness, and sometimes unwillingness to fail.
I know you are ready to learn, your commitment to WA showed that already. Work hard, and follow the steps here, I wish I had found this place much earlier in my career.

Blessings!

Hi Claudia

Thank you for the welcome. I am sure that I will have some questions given all of your experience. Ive heard of everything you mentioned except the last two. I cant wait to make money with amazon. I had a listen to Adrian and Tai Lopez. his program was about 3.5 grand. NZD. $66 NZD a month with WA is more doable for me.

thanks again

Hi Claudia! I am always amazed when I find other people who have done things I've done-like home schooled, I have never sold anything I've done so am thrilled to bump into someone like your self who actually got out there and 'did it'! I agree the WA community is awesome and I look forward to absorbing as much knowledge as I can and then putting it use as quickly as I learn it. I sincerely hope you go great guns and proceed full steam ahead here with this affiliate program. I look forward to a great and long lasting friendship in the time to come... thank you for following my progress as well. I appreciate it very much-Alice

Thanks, Claudia! I will definitely be having many questions as I get started, so may be bugging you in the future. Right now, I'm so new, I don't even know where to begin. I am just going to take advantage of as much training as I can and go from there. All the best to you, my friend!

Hi Claudia, I would like to learn more about drop shipping without spending a pile of money on a course. There are a couple of people here that have written about it but not much in depth training. There are also a couple online but the price is high. I think WA is the way to go. I really need some advice!

Hi Dan, I wrote a series of articles on the subject on one of my blogs - here is the resource page that has the links to all of the articles, and to a Wholesale directory that I use for market research and finding niche products. Read through that, and if you still have any questions, drop me a PM. http://missfiercelyindependent.com/drop-shipping-tools-and-resources Good luck!

Thank you for reaching out to me, you have made me feel really welcome… I am sorry this is a “form response” but I can’t write so many individual notes without really knowing any of you yet… I am trying to do this along with my day job, something I am sure many of you know a lot about. I have lots of bricks and mortar experience but I am a novice at the online stuff. I think I have a great idea and I am looking forward to getting it online… Thanks again, cheers Mark

Hello,

I got a wrong preception that only by collecting most networks will help to boast my rank. I never response to the members joining my profile. I was wrong. Please pardon me didn't mean to ignore you. I swear, til NOW, I dont really know how this thing works. Or maybe Im not that serious to develop and maintain with all my heart? Too lazy to learn has no patience? My own confussion and desperation blocking me to pursue further, though admitting the community response here is such a two thumbs up support!
God bless you there. Thank you for all your effort to help me and both of us success with WA.

Thanks,
MLW

Hi, Claudia! My name is Lenair. I am also an author. I am also in the business of providing services to start-ups and entrepreneurs. Also, I am in the process of establishing a program in the Non-Profit sector for at risk and disadvantaged youth to systematize their maturation and development for the purpose of being self-sufficient going into adulthood. I would love to bounce some ideas off of you from time to time.

Enjoy your day.

I read your eBay lingo blog it's good, I happen to sell on eBay & do pretty well when I put the time and effort into it, when I came across this site it sparked an idea of how I could incorporate the two of them, still working on it but getting some good ideas!

Hi Marcus, thank you for the nice comment, but I am already on Bootcamp Course 6, and on certification course 4 - I am not a newbie in any form, with websites that are a few years old. I do appreciate you stopping by - blessings!

Hi and thanks for the follow.
Today I feel like sharing a great guiding thought for newbies and more experienced alike:

Take up one idea.
Make that one idea your life--think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.
Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.
This is the way to success.
Swami Vivekananda

I wish you plenty of energy, consistency and focus in the future months.

Hey Claudia:) I told you that I might take you up on your offer for help, but I didn't realize that I would need it so soon! Quick question...I set up a website last Friday night. Then, I went in and created some content. I think I did it the wrong way because it definitely doesn't look official like the other ones I've seen. It still looks like a beginners page with the filler writing in there. I can't seem to get back to my admin. page to delete and start over. Any clues?!!!

ClaudiaHB Premium
that sounds like a tech error, if you can not get back in your Admin. I have never had that problem before. May I suggest to contact site support? Here is the link: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support they are awesome, and always assist me with tech issues!

Hi Claudia thanks for the offer of asking questions. I'm promoting WA and I have to write a review. I was going to make a page and then transfer Kyle's template to my page. Then from there I'm not sure what to do with the review. Thanks for your help regards Louise
Reply
ClaudiaHB Premium
I am honestly not too much of a fan of the template for reviews. It is much better if you would write from your heart about what you think of WA, that sounds much more organic and truthful. So write a draft of all the things you like about WA, and why you would recommend them, and then format that - giving it a nice look, making sure your spelling is great, and add images. That is what I would do. Blessings!

Hi Claudia. Thank you for following me. I am completely relate to your reason for wanting to stay an online business. I too am a parent and my son is going off to college and I am using my funds I make through my efforts through affiliate marketing to help fund his education. It is expensive having kids isn't it? :)

Hi Claudia. Thanks for dropping by my website. I went to take a look at your website and I can say that you are very professional. I like your post about the Ebook in 24 hours. I definitely will be returning back to read it very well. Those black and gold background for your titles and headings is this a plugin.? It definitely gives a simple but elegant touch to your website. Liked it so much. Very much.

that is actually a theme, I did not do much to it at all - the theme is called CleanBlogg (yes with two gg's). I find it very responsive.
Thank you so much, I am glad that you enjoyed my site. Blessings!

Hi Claudia, thanks for the follow. I would think the pressure of leaving college with mountains of debt, trying to make it in this world is much like being place in a deep dark hole and being told to claw your way out. By the time your loans are paid off, you've lost a lot of time that should have been used for retirement savings. In any case, good luck with that goal.

Hi Claudia, we also homeschool our 3 children. Really my wife does it but I support her. We may put our kids in school this year just to give my wife a break and my 13 year old wants to try. We'll take it year by year. My hope is to work full time online so I can help with homeschooling. Take care
