About ColinB
Joined October 2015
I love having fun, and laughing. My laugh is known as infectious, so maybe I should make a ringtone from it!
I'm married with 6 older children (which is why I laugh otherwise I would cry!!!) who are a lot of fun. I'm also a college lecturer teaching computer science and maths.
But my real passion is the internet, and the desire to succeed in an online business. I love teaching, but now I want to pursue my own business, so I think my first website will be on helping computer science teachers and students.
Any Ideas how I can monetize the site would be gratefully received.
I am also a Toast master, a member of the international Speaking club organisation. I just love speaking!
So that's me! I look forward to meeting you all

Thanks for adding me to your network. I am following you in return. I have taught in higher ed (business classes) and love speaking to groups as well. Many people have told me how they get so nervous talking in front of people and I have referred them to Toastmasters. I know several people who have been involved and they raved about the organization and the experience.

Keep laughing...they say laughter is the best medicine :)

Wishing you all the best.

Kind regards,

Hi Colin, thanks for the follow! Your great profile reminds me of a crazy Santa soft toy that laughs out loud on squeeze that my neighbour received as a gift!

Thanks for the welcome everyone. This is the start of my second year at WA and this year is going to be massive. I'll be launching my computer science blog in a few months so if you have an interest in that subject for you or your youngsters in high school, college or university, then let me know.

Greetings Colin,

I just wanted to thank you and return the "follow",.

I too, relish any opportunity to speak; although this platform is a virtual one, it will do speedily for me, lol., I look forward to "hearing" your voice on this platform Colin.

All the best with your endeavors.

Hi Colin. Thanks for the follow. Love your sense of humour. I'm a Newbie too. You are definately in the the right place to pursue an online business.
There are a lot of ways you could monetise your site. With your skill set I'd look at developing your own products, e-books, training course and you could even write a book. Hope that helps. All the best and keep in touch.

Welcome to W A. My late husband taught Computers and Technology at our local community college. He also had a wicked sense of humor. I suspect if the two of you had ever gotten together, you would have spent the entire night talking computers and enjoying yourselves.
Best of luck in your endeavors.

Hi Colin,
I appreciate the follow and I am pleased to do the same. I have a nephew and his wife was a teacher she quit and started writing online courses and making money with them. Maybe you could do something like that.

I wish you the very best in all of your endeavors.

ColinB Premium
I really like that Idea. I am actually working on a computer science online course, so thanks for the encouragement

IoaneFetu Premium
ColinB, thanks for inviting me into your circle. Looking at your photo, it seems the medicine of laughter works well for you. With your computer knowledge, you have the advantage over me as far as the system is concerned. But I'm not complaining, I'm going to work with the hand that I have been dealt. Good luck on your new undertaking.

Colin, well you certainly look like a happy person!

I had a quick look at your site. Not a lot to read yet but you are getting there. Try compacting some of your sentences and avoid repetition in close by sentences.

Also have a look at making your font larger. There is a lot of us out here whose eyes are no longer as good as they were when young eyes!

Maths was one of my specialities. And I love the computer but most of my experience was using the tools to create the reports and accompanying stuff for my work.

You should get some response to your 'monetise' question as there are a lot of like minded souls out here.

Keep having fun and keep in touch.

Hi, Colin.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

You have been here for a while. I am relatively new.

Just the same, I look forward to learning, sharing and serving with you as we all move forward here at Wealthy Affiliate University.

Kindest Regards,

Create a membership site and teach what you know. Maybe you can become another Kahn Academy. Look for tools authors, speakers and teachers might use. Help homeschoolers. Find legitimate programs that teach various subjects, affiliate with the good ones and expose the scams. Use the public portion of your site to provide worthwhile information and build trust, but keep the valuable stuff behind you membership site and make the membership available only to subscribers. Start building you optin list now. Stay in touch with them weekly and build trust. Bring them into your membership.

Almost a year with WA. Lots of advice here. What is working for you?

Hi Colin,

Thanks for connecting!

In response to your question above about monetizing a site to help computer science teachers, my thoughts went to a site I used extensively as an English teacher over the years which was a membership site.


You might get some ideas from it. There is a free membership as well as paid levels. It is quite vast now but it started out small sharing resources.

Hope it helps,

Hi Colin , thanks for the follow, following you back, I would say, yes you can monetize, by charging a consulting fee for your service, offer them advice and coaching for a fix price , but before that I would say to start your blog with at least 10 good blog posts, first... Because over the years I have learned that with coaching and consulting is where you will make your money.. Just my thoughts... Bea

Hello Colin and a belated welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You have probably found out by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Whooaa! 200 plus blogs! I will certainly have alook at those. Thanks

Hi again Colin I don't know if you're aware of it or not but it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.
