Hello Everyone Eric Here,

Let me tell you about why I came to Wealthy affiliate. I was stuck in life for many years, battling all sorts of my own personal demons. I simply felt like nothing I could ever do would matter one way or another. I even got close to some serious one time only fixes for my situation.

I know a great deal about the ups and downs that everyone experiences in life and I believe I have finally found something I can do with all my spare time.I am not gonna lie and say everything is now perfect for me or that I even know what it's like to be happy.

I just know that I feel I have a purpose and I have found a place to sort of fit in for once. I am not the most social or outgoing, I find it hard to ask questions or even sometimes to say hi.

Sharing things about myself is one of the most uncomfortable things I can imagine, but for some reason I have been finding things come out much easier.

I have always been somebody who will fight and never give up but i find in the past I have not always tried.

I like things too so don't think that all I am gonna say is gonna bring you down.

I do enjoy gaming, movies and television. I love to sleep and used to workout often. I am more into fantasy sci-fi and other out of this world things.

That's about it for now.

Thanks for following me I really do appreciate everyone that has. I will always work hard to help because that is the real reason I joined here.

From day one Wealthy Affiliate's community made me feel good to be here, and for that reason I want to help out as much as I can.

Hi Eric,

The way you dress up your responses and comments so genuinely sympathetic impressed me so much that I had to follow you.

Well, after reading your bio it all makes sense - you are an honest, respectful, sympathetic person. You do have courage!!

WA is indeed an unprecedented "retreat" for all of us.

And .. you have finished all of the five courses - !!!!!

I am off now reading your posts -).

Warm regards - Henriette.

Yeah, I didn't really know what I was the first 30 days here. But I live and learn and believe I will make a bigger impact if I can help people instead of whining about everyone's shortcomings ...

I like the way you say nothing in your profile but suggest it's a lot. At least it can make a smile appear on someone's face for no reason but to extend the words...

me too .. out of every corner tI heard the whisper of "Overhelm' and that it would subside in a week or so .. well .. to be frank .. it took almost six... SIX weeks for me to get used and to go with the flow of this supporting community!

This was my first adventure on WA -).

Once again - your approach is subtle in every respect - You read between the lines, but that was clear by the responses you gave in course 1 - prepare for writing novels in 25 - 20 years from now - I am serious!!

Good to know you - Best Wishes and Warm Regards - Henriette.

That's always been something I thought about. Wishing I could from all the characters and the dialogues but my interest, for now, remains within single-player role-playing video games. The stories and the playable characters are just the same to me as an open picture book for adults. And the content in some games becomes more adult with every decade.

One of my biggest obstacles is I don't always want to write, it just seems to be on certain days and then nothing for a few more days.

Today and yesterday are great examples I wrote 8k words in 4 posts and feel like I can go for another couple hours.

That's the magic of the passion. Actually I am a painter by profession ( looking for and working on a more reliable income) and a few hours before each painting is finished the flow takes me with her and the surrounding world is just gone.. away.. non and never existent.. I think we as artists ( maybe you are an artist by now and have always been, but didn't realise this so far) are addicted to those brief episodes and are ready to take on every challenge within our circle of passion to be permitted another stay in our paradise .. well ..
But ... the writers we know, from the Russian 19th century till John Irving, they had an immense strong sense of selfdiscipline. They never just fiddled around!! Well may be a bit .

Well ... I think it all depends on the comfort zone - which is a very complicated concept after all... I am working to feel comfortable preferably outside my comfortzone .. -)!!

As is the sentiment of feeling content and peaceful.. also a complicated concept, which has for everybody a totally different connotation.

As an artist and as a writer as well, as an active creator in general, I think, we can only obtain this state of mind and heart - not to forget - in our own creative environment.

Life as an artist is complicated, for yourself and for your loved ones as well .. but .. there's never a dull moment, due to the magic of passion.

Should we be happy wit this ?? as far as I know .. we do not have a choice -)!!

Yeah, I am gonna try and do another 10k word before the month ends. We shall see if this gift is something that comes and goes or if it can work with my determination as a factor as well.

On a separate note, my sister has a gift for music, my mother has always amazed me with how well she can draw.

The rest of the family hasn't always stood out but perhaps all of us with something still hidden...

Anyways will talk to you later am gonna go take a break for now. Back at it later or even tomorrow.

Wishing you the Best

Eric.

I've had the experience of not opening up to people and keeping things that may be going on with me to myself. But one day I did talk to a few of my peers about something that happened to me. It was indeed relieving and I found that some of them had the same thing happen to them by the same people. It made me feel much better.

Saying Hi to people is a joy for me especially when they speak back. It is something I miss now that I live in Minneapolis. The people here don't speak as much as in my home town in Virginia.

By the way, I am an avid Sci-fi / horror fan. Classic horror movies, the best ones is my niche. Maybe you have a suggestion or two that will help me to get traffic on my site.

The first thing I would need to know it which area in history you mean by classic. For some people they think classic as childhood and for me would include nightmare on elm street, child's play, Friday the 13th movies.

The second thing I would expect on a site about horror movies is nostalgia, things to remind me why I loved them once and should revisit them.

Considering everything you could promote what pain point will you target, what about classic horror movies might a person lose sleep over that your site will help them with.

Getting people to visit the site is just one part how will you supply enough answers to keep them wanting more.

Eric, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Eric.

Well, I picked a theme before I started the site. Simple Things 4 Cash so it's been easy so far to stick to that theme.

Did the about me, getting started, simple website, simple ideas, simple techniques so far.

Just need to find out if my getting started page sounds more like an about me page then an outline. And also look for images and get links placed for things.

It has been simple so far, everything coming from my own brain that I have learned.

I even found making 10 topics for each page kinda easy, just have to research for each one and keep going from there.

When you have the Getting Started page published, let me know and I can absolutely have a look at that for you Eric.

cramervod Premium
I have that done and published as well as WA review.

One thing that I always recommend is to "show" people more within your content instead of just "telling" them. By this I mean that you should not just let them know about something, you should walk them through a process. Help them. Use screenshots or images to represent what you are talking about.

This will lead to a much more enjoyable user experience and will also lead to much higher conversions.

cramervod Premium
yeah I did that with my WA review I was just not sure about the getting started page if it was ok. So I will find images that are relevant for that page as well. Thank you for checking on it for me.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, for sure. People are very visual in nature and if they can also "see" what you are talking about, it will lead to much more readership and ultimately conversions.

Hey Eric, greetings from sunny Arizona. I was just over checking out your site and a few of your blogs. I'm no gamer but you have good interesting content for folks that are in need of some honest review rather than ad game hype you here all over the place. Thank you for your support. See you around.

That is what I am going for. At least once I learned exactly what the free games are online.. So I try to keep things relevant to what I find great. Instead of going with ones that are just popular. Best to you as well and thanks for the follow.

Eric, you may be new to WA but you certainly have some smarts! I noticed how many people you were helping and the help was really good on your part. Speaking of survivor, were you surprised at all the twists on the last one? It was one of the better ones in awhile. I am looking forward to connecting and learning here. All the best Eric.

Hello and welcome to WA! I have been here for about five weeks and have made myself find the time to work through the training and ultimately on my website. You'll find the community helpful here and the product to be effective. I've added you and feel free to do the same if you think I could be helpful in anyway.

If you'd like to see what I've accomplished here so far, understanding that I'm new to the website building game, here is the site:
www.preparetoact.org ---- It's about women safety, safety products, blogs, etc.... Would love feedback of any kind.

Best of luck
Chris

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! :)

I know I have the passion for online gaming and that I have a pretty good idea how to narrow it down from there but not quite sure exactly how far is too specific and when it's still too general... that has been leading me into cycle of stop and go.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You will want to narrow it down a little. What aspect of video games (the games themselves, devices, externals, hardware, etc)? What genre? What console? What game? Lots of ways you can narrow things down here.

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. :)

I was thinking along this line: I want to help people that want to find the best game(s) without having to recharge paycheck after paycheck to play them..

Sure, that could be a direction you head.
