About ColleenF1
Joined September 2017
Hi! I am a stay-at-home Mom and a part-time waitress, with an excellent husband and three beautiful children. I am very excited at the possibility to make extra money on the internet.

My passions include but are not limited to: books, plants, The Ocean, photography, Science and of course Family.

I have chosen to present a comprehensive website on everything there is to know and do at the beaches of San Diego, California.

I have accumulated endless amounts of photos through the years, and I am currently enjoying myself by visiting and documenting every one of the beaches in San Diego on the 70 miles of coast- hence the name 70milesofcoast.com. So far I have over 90, with about ten more to go!

I am hoping that my site can be a go-to reference, so I have lists of all available activities that are offered, from a list of fishing piers, coastal Nature Centers, Beach Clean Ups, and my personal favorite- a complete list of all beaches linked to Google Maps.

Talking about Google Maps, I am also a Local Guide. In essence, I add my beach photos to the App, and I receive points from views. So far as of 4/11, I am averaging about 8000 views a week! (Quick update! As of 10/27 I am averaging over 150,000 views a week!) If only I could find a way for everyone to come to my site, so I am going to try a new strategy and write reviews on the App as well. We will see how this is going to work out.

On an end-note, if anyone has any good advice on blog writing, please do not hesitate to comment. I am so intimidated, but I have been able to write 25 posts so far. Also, I am interested in selling my photos, so again if anyone can suggest an excellent platform, I would appreciate it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Good luck to us all!

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.

Thank you Mitch! May I ask you a question? I would like to have a photo gallery on my site...is there a particular theme that works well for this? I am very new and have just been playing around. Thank you!

I'm not aware of any specific themes that are conducive to that. Most bloggers will have dedicated pages for their galleries.

The following training written by Marion Black may be of use to you. Hope this helps!!

Quick question. I am doing my very first keyword rich article. My question is, do I mention certain businesses in the article. For example... my site is Petite Women's Shoes...I am writing about how hard it is to find small shoes. Do list the companies that offer them? Thank you

You will include the company name or brand name if it is part of the specific keyword you are putting into each post. An example would be "jimmy choo petite women shoes" or "valentino shoes for petite women"

This way you'll be able to write a lot of content for many brand designers.

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! :)

Hi Kyle! Thank you for the email, and sorry I did not get back sooner. I have been working over the weekend and have just start back up on my very first Keyword post. My niche is Petite Women Shoes and my question is: Do I include the name of certain businesses which carry such shoes, be it brick and mortar stores on online sites? Thank you. I will be upgrading to Premium tomorrow. Another question would be, will it be 49/month after the first month?

Sounds like you have chosen a great niche Colleen. You can definitely take this passion and turn it into a successful business with some direction and a little elbow grease here at WA. We are all about turning a passion into a business and that is what our training is going to walk you through.

The main aim is to include the specific keyword in each post. The keyword may include the brand name so you will include it in the post.

Yes the monthly price will $49 after the first month.

If you ever need any guidance with the training then please don't hesitate to drop me a reply.
