Yes, beekeeping is very interesting, and hard work when you have to wrap forth hives for winter. Then there are the bears and bear elenctical fencing. Honestly keeping bees is hard work but fun

Sandy, I am always amazed by the diversity of talent and energy that belong to some who become members here and you appear certainly that.

Honoring a holistic and organic view to health and well-being, I immediately resonate with your background/accomplishments and look forward to knowing more.

Hopefully you are finding this journey as rewarding as the work of a Beekeeper. I've a brother-in-law who dabbles in "Honey" and he says it is a sweet deal...hmm.

Anyway thank-you for finding me and pushing follow...Shine brilliant you, and enjoy!

Respectfully

I love being in the land of the unfamiliar. It is very much like Nursing you never know what is coming through the door next. My husband, on the other hand, thinks the whole thing is nonsense. He is a person that will always follow the path of predictability. These are strong personality traits, and cannot be easily changed. Our WA community is created of brave, pioneers, willing to fight the extra mile to find the success and financial freedom they crave.

Good to see somebody else from the health field here on Wealthy Affiliate. I too am trying to earn an income - eventually a full-time livelihood - here so I can have more financial security and help support my charities (some of which are my children!). Anyway, that's the plan, and it is good to see others have been successful in operating this plan.

Hi Dragonfly,
Just go to the end of your current domain (that is in your cart) and switch the auto-renew to OFF. It will show up red, I believe. After you do that, you should be able to go ahead and purchase the new domain name. It would be wise to try and get this done ASAP so no one else takes your domain name that is available. Good Luck and I hope this works for you!

I have a question; maybe someone can help me with. Today I went to buy a new domain name. I used the WA Site Domain. My domain name is available. My problem is my cart has my current domain in it. How do I empty my cart to add the new name? My common sense tells me, my old domain name is sitting in the cart to auto-renew. Does anyone have a workaround for this dilemma?

HI Sandra,

I don't know if this will work but you could

!. Just click on the X in the front of the box with your domain name in it, if it is sitting in there for auto renew. Then after you purchase the new domain just to make sure, check to see if your auto renewal switch is still on and if it is then i would think it should just reenter itself. If not check it in a day or two if it does not reappear then contact site support.

2. Wait til after it renews then it should delete itself from your cart.

3. Or contact site support and they can tell you why its in there and how to deal with it..

Hope this helps,

Calvin

ok did as explained and typed it in but the wheel keeps spinning. How long is normal for it to do this?

Oh,


i seen Connie's post above you have to turn auto-renew switch off first, makes sense, purchase new domain, then turn switch back on Okay will remember that one for sure LOL

You got it and that's what matters the most.

have a great day,

Hello Sandy!

Dropping by to ask how you are doing! Hope you are alright, not having a too heavy workload on your big property.

I am busy working on my online business and as you notice still not very active in the community for the time being. Working on figuring out how to make my website profitable. Promoting books and healthy food is not enough for earning an regular income. Nevertheless, I'm confident that I'll find out a way to reach out and help more people.

Please, tell me how are things for you. If you need some help or encouragement, send me a PM.

Best wishes,
Pernilla

I was also hoping to make this a full time job within a year. But right out of the gate I had to take take some time off from the training. I'm back, but this is so much harder than I thought it would be. I'm pushing my FT deadline to 2 years. I hope you are able to maintain your goal of one year. I dream of not having to go to work everyday.

Thank you, David. I do plan in the future to add a Niche on beekeeping, Although information on beekeeping can be very controversial, due the subject of Colony Collapse Syndrome (CCS). Everyone has different ideas on the cause of this syndrome. One year my husband lost over 380 hives due Colony Collapse Syndrome. He was in the Almond orchards of California. Almonds are not self-pollinating and are solely dependent on bee pollination. They also use substantial amounts of nicotinoid pesticides. Which many Beekeepers feel is the primary reason behind CCS. (Many people feel this the new DDT) This pesticide is also killing caterpillars (now many types of moths are on the endangered list) and then birds who eat worms and caterpillars, are suffering as well. That is what my Niche will be about, the plight of the wild Songbirds. In Japan; they have lost so many bees that they are using hand pollination in many of their orchards. My husband health is now poor, so we have cut back to 40 hives, and have an organic license on our property, so we are no longer losing our bee colonies. If you want to watch an interesting movie on Netflix, watch Rotten, a portion of the file is about the Honey industry. You will never eat another jar of honey from your local supermarket again. So now you have a brief education on beekeeping. I would love to learn about the bee industry in South Africa. I will have to look it up on the internet.

I love Dragonflies as much as I do birds and bee's which are suffering from the overuse of nicotinoid pesticides. People need to more educated on the use of some pesticides. If we lose our honey bees, we will lose 3/4ths of all of all our food supplies. We will be a starving nation without our bees. Nicotinoids last in the environment for a long time after they are applied. I am not an environmental activist, but I do have concerns but this particular pesticide. Fish and wildlife freely use this pesticide to kill some invasive beetles. I don't think there have been enough studies on this pesticide yet to use it so openly.

Hello Sandy 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 referring to the training.
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.

For a couple of good affiliate programs promoting good health visit my site trulygoodlife.com. I have links to two sites that are free to join and are absolutely honest. No credit card needed. One is for CBD and the other is Dr. Sears.

I sold life insurance for 20 years and have a CLU designation. Been in the real estate business for the last 40 years. Run my web sites as a hobby with the idea of helping others learn affiliate marketing with reliable companies.

On the web you must be very careful of shams and upsells. When you buy something almost every affiliate site I know tries to do an up sell, including Dr. Sears. I simply ignore upsells.

WA can truly make you independent, but it takes hard work and determination.


Glad to see the progress you are making here at WA.

Dear Norbert,
I thank for reading my profile, By accomplishments are in large part due to the support and guidance I had through my younger years. ( My Godfather directed my education) I did not have a much in the way of distractions, as a child or young adult. Although in summer I had all the fun one would want. Spain was my playground. Barcellona was my where I spent most of my time on the beach. Summer was short, and school studies were long. I had the best life a child could have!
Sincerely Sandy
I look forward to getting to know you

Dear Anne,
Great job, you jumped in. I found when I committed, to a premium account, it made all the difference for me. I became focused and stopped, drifting around in a circle getting nowhere. I found a whole community waiting with open arms, willing to help, encourage, and guide me. I will be there for you, as so many others have been there for me. I was following another group, only to be told hire a ghostwriter when it came to site content. I knew it was time to jump ship and swam to WA. I know I made the right decision, just as you have. Shall we swim through this together? I think we will make great friends and both be successful in our own right.

Oh, Ann,
This question is a tuff one. Do you have a website up and running? Are you receiving traffic? If not I would set up, a second sit for WA. Have you started and completed Bootcamp? It is my understanding most; affiliate sites do not pay for 4 to 6 weeks. I would pose this question to Kyle, Carson, and Bo. They are far more knowledgeable than me.

Ok so I'm thru all the lessons......don't have my site 'fine tuned' yet. Will be working on that. But do you know of any ways I can start making money now? Is promoting WA the quickest? My j o b has cut my hours and I'm kind of panicking at this point. I live from paycheck to paycheck and am afraid this is going to take too long, I just need a little money coming in so I'm not stressed trying to figure out how I'm going to eat and pay my bills. Any info will be GREATLY APPRECIATED.
Thanks, Anne
