About Dhind1
Joined October 2017
Semi retired geologist looking for something new. I have travelled the world working as a geologist. Never did get to South America, or Russia, but most other places have seen me for a day or two, or thirty.
Eventually ended up in Thailand working and stayed working here for 18 years. The job ended as I knew it must, but still it would have been nice to stay working. However, a loss is a new opportunity - right.
I joined WA because I like to help people. I want to make a business while helping others. Hopefully that is something I can do. Still working on it at present.
I live here with my wife and mother in-law. Our daughter has moved on to university. We are a diverse group, with 3 dogs, numerous cats (too many to count) and a bunch of fish.

Hi Dhind1,
You would be a great party guest, must be a lot of amusing & tight corners that you worked in. Have you noticed how little boys collect rocks? My youngest took a small bag of rocks from a beach in the Riviera, still have them of course, he's long gone and left me his treasurers.
Hi from Oz to Thailand, what a gorgeous place to retire.
Best wishes for a successful site.
Thank you for following me I have followed you back.
Cheers Jae

Thank you. I have indeed worked in many places around the world, and stopped to visit all of them when the job was over. I do have a rock collection, though most of them are tucked away in Canada at present.
Good to connect. Best of everything here at WA.

Hi Alexander

Thanks for the follow and connecting to my network!

My g-grandfather collected mineral samples. He was a mining superintendent. I have his collection of rocks which he collected through his years. I think 6 boxes of rocks. One of the boxes had a bottle of agates which were turned on a lathe into marbles. The rocks are around circa 1910 - 1920.

Wishing you success here in WA

Had to pop over to your bio page, Alexandar after your comment on mine...It sounds like you will be able to tap into all that experience to create a powerful niche that you can flesh out online. This is certainly the place to learn how to most effectively and efficiently do just that! Glad to have you here with us and wishing you all the best! Cheers! Dave : )

Hi , Dhind1 My WA is stawhu but my name is Scott. I was somewhere and I saw you were a semi retired geologist. I was fascinated by the prospectors program that one of the cable stations ran as a two or three year series. But it is gone now, they looked for crystals and such on the top of mountains in Colorado. And all they had to do was dig them up without getting killed.rockslides and others but my fav has been gold rush any way glad to see you have a site up and running. I am working on mine now, but I published my privacy polocy as a post instead of a page and now i have to find out how to correct it. I could swear i hit page, but anyway good luck to you . Oh and I also am interested in roks from the historical perspective , things found in coal that is way older than the history of man can allow spoons and other things ????????

I just searched for a way to make a post a page and did not find an answer, so....The easiest way to convert the post to a page would be to copy it and re-post as a page, then delete the post. I have not heard about things found in coal, but I will check it out.

thanks for the input, But I am not sure how to do this copy thing I am not tech savvy and don' t quite understand the procedure that would be involved. and i don't want to lose my about me page. I will pull out my records and give you the you tube sites, or you can do a quick search on google for " strange things found in coal " and follow with on you tube. Check also on the london hammer found in a rock outside of a Texas town , London. I have others but i need my notes, can't remember them all. Thanks scott

Hello Alexander 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.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 380+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Alexander you may not be aware of this 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.

You don't have to 'Like' if you don't want to.
A lot of members do not do this simply because they concentrate on why they are here and that's to learn how to make money online.
This is as it should be so don't worry about not Liking.

Interesting profile! I work --- before I see this biz explode --- I work in the bottled water industry and we work closely with local geologists regularly. Very pleased to meet you. How is your 'something new' here working out? I see you have only been here a short time. Is there anything that I can help you with?

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 Alexander,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate (WA).

My name is Todd and I referred you here to Wealthy Affiliate through my website http://LearnToGrowWealthOnline.com

I hope you really enjoy WA and take time to check them out, there's a ton of training and great info here.

Absorb it like a sponge.

I personally started by taking classes one day at a time and then simply took action on what I learned.

The results?

I couldn't be happier with my online business.

I Make Money While I Sleep. It's Awesome!

That being said, before you start making money, there are three things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions and interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their financial goals.

- Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach at WA.. 2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link.. .

This is the first course on the Wealthy Affiliate Entrepreneur Program, and the next best step you can take.

This is where I started my online business and I think you'll be pleased with the results.

3) Don't be afraid to ask questions. WA is a super friendly community, especially to newbies, so there are no dumb questions here.

Remember that you can ask any question you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here..

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

I'm going to follow you and here's my Wealthy Affiliate profile if you want to contact and/or follow me back.

You have everything you need here at WA to create a successful online business, you just need to take advantage of the education, community support, and TAKE ACTION on what you learn.

I wish you success with your online business and goals.

Cheers
Todd

Hi Todd,

I want to create a welcome message similar to the one that you made here and sent to me. It was informative and made me feel pretty good about Wealthy Affiliate. I am building a welcome post, but I cannot seem to find a way to integrate the links like you have in this post.
Is it as simple as posting the entire URL as is from the
URL bar and it will appear as a clean link in the post?

For example will this link appear as the It does not seem to work for me, how do I get a link like you had in my welcome post?

I need to set up welcome messages in case I get a referral.

Please advise.

Thank you,

Alex

Huh, I just answered my own question once I hit post here it works, so can I assume that if I put the same text into my post the link will appear when the welcome message is sent out?

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, it will, just put the link and it will typically format to the title. The only way to know is to try it out and see how it looks. You can always go back and edit things, so it's pretty easy to update or change.

Thanks,
Todd
