About Dchapman3
Joined January 2018
Hello WA,

My name is Don.

I am a retired Engineering, Project, and Program Manager looking for new opportunities for helping others and staying productive in my later years.

I worked in the oil and gas business for 39 years which provided very well for my family and retirement. However, as many may know, a person needs to stay productive and have the feeling of personal fulfillment.

This is what drove me to the Wealthy Affiliate community. You can read My Story, https://retiredfanatic.com/28-2.

You can stay socially engaged and help others with the pay it forward attitude instilled here at WA. I can work my business anywhere I go as my wife and I are going to do traveling within the USA.

I am a grandfather of 4 great grandkids, 3 boys and 1 girl. I live in Texas. I enjoy spending time with my grandkids and watching my grandsons play baseball.

Hi Don,
I started this message a few minutes ago then went to another page to find some info. When I came back, my draft was gone. I hope you don't get this twice!

I got a query on HARO (Help A Reporter Out) that would be a perfect chance for you to get a backlink from a high quality blog.

Here's the query:
Name: Nancy Reyes blogger
Category: General

Email: query-7yin@helpareporter.net

Media Outlet: blogger

Deadline: 7:00 PM EST - 20 May

Seeking product ideas for my camping gift guide tents, bedding
,lamps, sleeping bags, air mattess, things to eat , grill ,
hammock, utensils , plates, camping chair , and much more. The
blog has 140,000 unique monthly visitors and complies with the
FTC blogger guidelines.

Her blog is https://thingsthatmakepeoplegoaww.com/

***If she'll give you a backlink*** that would be an awesome opportunity to build some traffic for your own site.

HARO is a site that reporters and subject experts can sign up for. Reporters enter requests for input on topics they're writing about and the subject experts who've signed up get 3 emails a day with a list of queries like the one I'm sending you.

Backlinks are good, as you probably know, because they boost your position in Google search results.

Hope this helps,

How do I pursue this? I assume the want to backlink to my website http://www.bestcampingsupply.com potentially.

Hi don,
I'm sorry, it may be too late. |'ve been away for a few days & didn't see your reply. What you'd need to do is contact her thru the email address given. (Again, I'm sorry - I assumed it was obvious & looks like I did a great job of making an a** out of myself anyway.\0

Thank you for following me back Donald; I'm betting we can learn a lot from each other here in this vast community, looking forward to it.

I pick up a right amount of knowledge on internet marketing from Wealthy Affiliate, and developed skills hidden deep within me I never knew were there. I'm sure you will also.

I've been teaching myself coding, and so far it has been a real adventure for me. You see, I'm in the process of writing a step-by-step guide on how to build a website from scratch.

I'm thinking Amazon...

The secret, It's my gateway to mobile app development, because nobody is building websites from scratch. Hint: Apps is where it at.

I'm thinking A.I

Just taking baby steps...

Well anyway, you're just as busy as I am. I wanted to say thank you and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. If you have any questions, I'm here to help. May God bless you and be the light for your journey.

Hello Donald and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Hello Don! First, I want to give you a warm Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I mist say that, I really appreciate your follow. By the way, how are things going with Getting Started, and Certification Program going?

I see you're on target with blogging.

Congrats to a great family tree you have. I know they all mean the world to you. Anyway, I have 4 children, 3 girls, 1 boy, and 12 grands. I love them all.

Engineering is an excellent field. So you must have some wonderful and innovative ideas to use as a great niche.

I wish you an awesome online journey in Affiliate Marketing.

Blessings to you!

Thanks. I'm currently on level 5, lesson 4 on my hunt for certification. Building content as I go. After many years in oil and gas, this gives me a real opportunity to do and learn something new and exciting. My experience has been great so far and meeting great people.

Hi Don, thanks for following me, I'm now following you too. I agree with you completely. I just tried sending you a message but my internet screwed up so I don't know if you got it. I'll try again. I got into this because I plan on retiring in less than two years. I want to have several sites up and running by then so the wife and I can travel and work on them from the road. As long as I can continue to learn, I don't grow old, right? Besides I've been active all my life and I don't plan on slowing down anytime soon. Good luck with your endeavor and I'll see you at the top.

Hi dchapman3,

Thank you for accepting my invitation to network under WA and within its community.

To grow, I need more and more timely support as much as I could have from you and all other WA members despite knowing that less than 10% of its participants may excel, reflecting how well and hard they work and how smart they are.

So, patience and persistence + hard and smart work are the keys to succeed in any business with no exception for affiliate programs.

Here I want to let you know I appreciate your continual generosity in offering support and help. Likewise, let me know if anything I can do for you and I will oblige to.

All the best to your success,

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! :)
