About DBlanchard
Joined January 2016
Hi, My name is Denis Blanchard. I have been studying for ways to make money online for quite a while now. I had great ideas at first, but I quickly realized that there are no magic buttons, no getting rich overnight (even though there are a lot of schemes and/or scams out there claiming that they can).

This is how I found WA, I was skeptical about one’s claim and found it while reviewing it on barenakedscam.com. Well at first look WA seems pretty amazing. I am willing to work and learn so I believe I am at the right place.

Update April 2017:
After being a member for a while now I can honestly say that I truly believe that I have found the one and only place on the net that has a community feeling and that is genuine to its mission: to help people start and grow an online business. People here all have the same goal and help each other like no other place that I know of. WA rocks!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update April 2018:
At the end of January 2018, I decided to join the SAC (Super Affiliate Challenge) and I am so pumped up!

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/super-affiliate-challenge-12-month-intensive-training

I am proud to say that after a little less than three months, my new website is coming along pretty good! Not as fast as I want since I still work at my 9 - 5 full-time job. However, my plan is that I will be able to update my profile one day soon saying that I am doing this full time.

I made my first sale at about 2 and a half months after starting the SAC training and applying it to my website.

All this to say that it is proof that dedication, hard work, and persistence will prevail! You just have to believe!

Thank you Wealthy Affiliate and the whole community!

Update April 2019:
Working part-time at this is NOT easy but it is very rewarding if you stick to it!

As of April 1st, 2019, I have managed to write 126000 words which makes up 8 pages, a couple of landing pages, and 72 articles, which is not a lot, but it's what I was able to do with the time available to me.

I have managed to build an email list that I have accumulated by offering an ebook and I use Aweber as my email autoresponder.

My Social media presence has helped increase my traffic, and most of my social media referral traffic is from Pinterest and Twitter. I have not been able to get Facebook going as much, and this is something I will work on during the next year.

My organic traffic (from search engines) has increased exponentially in a year.
I have a bunch of articles that have made it to page one of Google and the result is I am getting more and more referrals.

However, because I can only work nights and weekends at my online business, it will take me longer than someone who works at this full time but I am confident that I will cross the finish line, but probably like the tortoise and not the hare!

Which is fine by me. :) I am looking forward to retiring from my full-time job (A few years to go) and this will be my full-time hustle.

We all have different paths to follow and mine is to create a solid online business to fall back on when I do retire (probably sooner than later if things keep on going like they are).

All I can say is that Wealthy Affiliate works!

All you have to do is apply what you learn here and never quit! You will get there eventually!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PS Even though I let my first niche on the side, for now, I will be getting back to it, because of my time restraint, I need to concentrate at one project at a time!

PPS If you want to communicate with me, just send me a PM. I am always available to help! I have nothing to sell, I just want to pay-it-forward and help like I was helped when I first started!

And don't forget to have fun while building your Online Business!

My goals are to develop a passive source of income so that I can live my dream of having "time freedom". I have been working a 9 to 5 job for way too long and I strongly believe that the Internet will provide me with the means of "making it" from my home office instead of that daily commute.

I am sure you can. Many WA members have achieved it and I do not see why you can't. I have the same goal as you, and I do not want to work for someone else for the rest of my life, you never know when they will stab you at the back. It is always nice to have something to fall back on. Keep it going!

Cheers!
Jack

Hi Denis, thanks for the follow as i will do the same. I have been here since 2015 and this is truly the best platform out there. You need to keep in mind that there no overnight rags to riches but it is rather a building process. I personally have build a few brick and mortar businesses, one of them is a gym and fitness facility that was establishe 15 years ago. Today we are still in business and going stronger than ever. It took us about 10 months to be writing black numbers. This is the avaerage to get a business going. This here is not any different. WA gives you the tools and the education, however you need to find the well for yourself. Good luck and Happy New Year

Howdy Denis, yes indeed, WA is unique, different than most other opportunities. Kyle and Carson seem to be very genuine guys. We have been members for several years and I can assure you that no matter where one goes on the internet, these two guys are very well accepted and respected. We are very honored that you seem to see what we see and look forward to a great future traveling the Internet Super High way with ya.
Bless You,
Sam and Deb

Hi Aundria, had a couple of issues that caused us to loose our focus and we know with out a doubt that we are in the right place at WA. Sometimes life interferes, Family Tragedies and Sicknesses can be major distractions.
Bless You,
Sam and Deb

I can relate to Sam & Deb's answer. I too have been here since January of 2016, but lost focus for the bigger part of 16 and part of 17. Sometimes when life pushes you, you have to push it back I guess. Cheers to a better new year 2018! :)

Hi Dennis, You've been around WA for a little longer than me so I guess you like the membership.
Your profile shows you in nature & it looks cold. Where are you from and what are you doing against rushing water?
It is hot here in Oz right now and approaching Xmas a real buzz going on.
Thank you for following me & I have followed you too.
Merry Xmas & wishing you a great New Year.
Cheers Jae

Hi Jae,
I live in Canada. The picture shows me during an outing to a waterfall we have not far from my home and its during the fall season, so yes it is cold where I live especially from December to March. I do love WA and all of its advantages and the community feeling we have here. I wish you the best!

Cheers!
Denis
