Like many people here at WA, I wear many hats. Recently, I've been asked to add writing coach and mentor. I'll be adding more details of that journey soon.

I am a homeschool Mom to 9 children, 7 grads, 2 in progress. We live on our family organic aquaponic farm in central Florida with a medley of pets that includes dogs, cats, horses, goats, birds, and rabbits.

Writing has always been an important part of my life and now I am a blogger that concentrates on a healthy lifestyle, family, and pets. While I enjoy blogging, I also delight in writing other forms of content. My writing reflects my diverse interests.

I'm so excited about completing my first book, a literary nonfiction titled: Living By Faith, A Journey of Faith, Family, and Fortitude. You can read more about it on my author site: http://dianekann.com. I'm working on more book projects and will hopefully have them published this year.

I welcome visitors to all my sites and social media. (see "follow me" to the right)

My websites reflect my diverse interests:

houseplantjoy.com is about houseplants!
dianekann.com is my personal author site (includes link to my books)
floridasplendors.com showcases the natural and "not theme park" side of Florida
veganglobetrotter.com focuses on vegan cuisine from around the world
bestbakingtips.com offers recipes and a lot of great advice about--baking!
writing trails.com (a new site for me) will feature poems, short stories, etc
sr-parents.com focuses on caring for our aging parents
athomeworkguru.com (a new site) is my home business-focused site.
familylifefocus.com (a new site) is a niche off from my original site
lifewithmydogs.com (new site) all about dogs in my life and others, too!
christmascountrymom.com is my original site (I'm revamping now) with an eclectic mix of information
pet-counsel.com includes information about pets. It's my second site, so also being revamped.
I recently gave one of my previous sites to one of my daughters-- she's on WA as: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/rebekah272
the site she now has is:
teajubilee.com
and it's all about tea, the types, benefits, and happiness

I anticipate selling some of my sites over the next few months to concentrate on the others. Each one has good prospects and I'm building them to provide good value for the next owners. Stay tuned for that part of my business plan!

Hello, nice to meet you on WA. I wish you the best of luck on your writing journey. I wrote a book last year about my accident and recovery through KDP. It was a learning curves, but I found it both therapeutic and rewarding. WA will also be a steep learning experience but I look forward to the adventure. Peace Jim

Thanks for the follow, Jim. I added you to my network, too.
Do you have an author page where I can see your book info?

Hello, yes I have a bio on the Amazon author page. The book is called - The Last Tackle- Finding Courage in the Face of Adversity. I had an football accident as a teenager. I am not sure links are allowed but you can search Google. I am back to basics with WA and learning a lot. Jim

There is nothing like sharing our goals with WA virtual friends to make sure we stay accountable and work towards completing our goals! Thank you for following me here at WA, returning the same as well.

Indeed, you have a lot of interests given your various websites.

Here is to a productive 2021!

Your bio and your accomplishments are amazing. I have been working on my book for 20 years. I hope to write and complete it when my kids move out on their own. I am very impressed with the fact you started 4 years ago and now rank #23 wow, wow, wow, how did you do that? how much time do you work each day for the last 4 years?
I am glad you found me!! I need some wisdom from someone of such tremendous faith!!
Please tell me you achieved your goals!!
p.s. I raise 4 baby turtles

Honestly, it's been a rocky road at times, but I just don't give up 😎

I started while caring for my Dad after his stroke. I had spurts of time, but that decreased as his needs increased. Then, when he passed, I took some time totally away. I needed to take more time with family and honestly, I could not make myself want to write for some time. Grieving can be more exhausting than a 24/7 caretaker, I think. I also developed some health issues during the caretaker years, so have had to work with those (still) but am thankful for what I have.

When I went back to my sites, I decided to make it a full-time effort. I still have family time and spend time with my furkids, but I try to put in several hours each day with the websites. It doesn't happen every day, but most.

Not an exciting story, for sure, but one that is working for me. If you have one site and at least a couple of hours a day, you can make it work. Like anything, the more time you dedicate to it, the sooner and better your results.

The community here at WA is amazing. Follow the training and you will find success. But when you have questions or need a little encouragement, just reach out!

I love that you are raising 4 little turtles! What species? We had red-eared sliders years ago. Now we just enjoy the wild ones that come into our farm ponds. Such interesting creatures!

Have a wonderful day and stay in touch!

You are the first person to actually write me a letter. I can easily tell who automatically generates pre-written responses. I really needed that today.
Dianne was my step mothers name. She was like a mom to me, and I miss her very much. She died of cancer, this is the time of year when I re-live that experience. She was the only person who ever encouraged me...ever. Well there was a couple of other people, but in the end their true colors showed right through. They encouraged me to receive benefits for themselves.
The only other person who was honest and supportive actually lives in Florida last I heard. Her name was dixie. I loved her like a mother.
I have had a horrible life. One injustice after another, year after year. My children are my life. I got buried in debt getting custody of them. I finally got custody after 10 years, I lost everything and, everyone, in the process.
This is the first time I have cried in a very long time. I don't know why, but your sincerity really affected me. I have lived a life of abuse, the only time people are nice or kind to me is when they have some kind of agenda.
I really like working here at WA. Everyone has been very respectful and kind. That is why I joined. I needed a positive environment where I could learn and grow.
Thank you for taking the time to write me.
My turtles are so affectionate it is hard to understand how they can be so loving to each other. I have one painted, one red-eared slider, and 2 baby musk turtles smaller than a quarter. I bought them for my son, but he has grown up a lot in the last year, so I take care of them and they bring me happiness everyday.
I am looking forward to our friendship. I am a very honest and loyal person. I have two kids, well teenagers, they are really good kids. Their life was nothing but abuse and neglect. They survived 150 pages of police reports, many were blacked out and I could not even read what they did to my kids.
We are happy for the first time in our lives, and we are finally stabilized. I have been working way too much, but I need to keep focused or I become complacent.
Have an amazing day today, I will keep in touch every so often, but I will look to you for help and support.

You certainly have been through a lot. That makes you a survivor and such a kind-hearted person. Your kids are blessed that you went through all of that for them.

I understand the "that time of the year"-- next month is the anniversary of my Dad's passing and hits hard each year. This is year 3. But Oct 25 is the time of Mom's passing and even after 12 years, it is still massively challenging. They say you "get over it" but in my experience, you just learn how to manage it.

I wish you well, my friend. And yes, let me know if I can be of help.
Have you chosen a niche?

I have no idea why I am so emotional today, or even why I'm hurting. I suppose I spent too much time not feeling ...feelings.
It means the world to me that you shared your personal stuff with me. Many people never discuss their pain. I have to every chance I get. I pour my life into telling my story in everything I do.
Money is not the primary focus of my mission. At 50 years old, I have a lot of ambitions and very little time to accomplish my goals before I die.
I have 3 niches I am working on. One at a time. After that I am going back to being the artist I was born to be. Building a web site to sell my work.
I never can forget where I came from and feel a Christian duty to help people, simply because that was never my life. Those who did help me..made sure I felt worthless and made sure I knew I could not make it without them.
I will be looking into some of your posts. Something tells me I am going to learn from you.
Have an awesome day. I live in Indiana and the weather here is awful...When I do succeed..I am moving!!

As you come into "that season" the emotions just flow. It happens. And I think it's helpful, in a way.

I understand the weather issues. I grew up and lived in western NYS...snow belt! When our 3 oldest boys were still young, we moved to Florida and vowed to never live in snow again! I never liked it, but then, we always had animals so spent a lot of time outside, thawing water and such. Not fun!

Helping others through your sites is a wonderful ambition. I started my Sr-Parents site while caring for my Dad. It was painful to even look at it when he passed, but I am finally back to it and glad I didn't delete it. In a way, it's a tribute to my parents and grandparents and all they were. But it's also a way for me to reach out to others who are working through these life changes now.

All the best, my friend!

Oh my! You have accomplished a lot in your time at WA. Of course, homeschooling 9 children is pretty amazing too! And everything else you do. You indeed wear many hats!

I plan to check out your book and some of your websites.

It is a pleasure to follow you. I'm sure I will be able to learn a lot from you as I begin this WA journey.

Your ceiling—I would stick myself to your ceiling. Just wanted to clarify that. You would notice me too easily if I stuck myself to your wall.

And 9 children?! How did you do that? One is enough for me: Martina is a hand-full at 10 months young running around and climbing her scratch post! I am glad the vet trimmed her nails when she was just in last week to get spayed. She wasn't having that with me. You should see her in her onesie! What a cutie! She's got it on to keep her from licking and playing with the incision from her surgery. She's a funny girl.

Anyhow, come check out my site: www.bigbusinessreads.com, and let me know what you think.

Cheers
