About DrRuthM
Joined January 2016
I'm a healthcare professional (pharmacist) based in Northern Ireland, mum, daughter, wife and friend. Passionate about healthcare, research, my family, personal development....and reaching my goals.
I have so many passions, and here at WA, I need to focus my mind on one particular passion at a time.
Life has been good to me....and at times life has been unbelievably difficult....but I am a strong and independent woman and I am fighting my way back.
We all have a story to tell.

I have been absent for more than three month's I have been absent. I try to eliminate the backlog in reacting to followers.

Wow, I am blown away in regards to your profile. You are amazing and a inspiration to the community at large.

Did you hear about all the bank robberies in Alabama? Turned out it was a fortune teller who was only 4'.7".

The police here have got a B.O.L.O. on him. They want everyone to be looking for a small medium at large.

Seriously though. Thanks for the follow, I'm following you right back.

Ruth (my wife's name...love it): Thank you so much for your follow. I appreciate it very much and welcome to my network of fabulous WAers. My network is about two things.

First, I encourage every follower to regularly post a blog with WORTHY content to other WAers. Obviously, if you blog once a day your ranking will quickly move up in WA. However, please understand that I only blog approximately once every two weeks and in the back of my mind I am only blogging to my followers in an attempt to provide the best example (of my writing skills) to you that I can. Why! Your website will only be successful if you post quality pieces to it.

Second, I try to help my followers every time they run into a snag with their websites to the best of my ability. If that is not good enough, I will refer you to other HELPERS at WA that will definitely be able to help you. So an open invitation: If you run into a problem here at WA, please let me try to assist you.

Please remember that Kyle, Carson, me and you are not WA. WA is the thousands of students learning the concepts of e-commerce and the hundreds of WAers that learn to blog regularly for the delight of the community as they attempt to hone their various writing skills. Welcome! DAN

She is now nine and I always worry about how it may have affected her. I actually feel there isn't enough support and help out there as I felt very isolated at the time. So good for you for tackling this difficult area. All the best.

Hi Ruth
I guess you have probably read a lot of the blogs regarding niches - one that is absolutely stand-out is Kyle's This really helped me to clarify firstly 'What is a niche?'
You've got it right and you've covered most of the basics in your blog post. But to actually help you to focus - well - that's a bit more difficult from here! To tell you the truth, I'm in need of that kind of help too! My original website is on breastfeeding. I thought I was pretty knowledgeable, it's a passion of mine and - well - I thought it would be good. But 8/9 months down the track, I've totally lost my mojo and am finding it hard to even log in to my website! In fact, I put it on a holiday while I try to drum up some interior enthusiasm for it! You and I are somewhat alike I think - full of ideas, but SO full of ideas that we can't settle to one thing! I often think it would be wonderful if someone would come up with a way to download the contents of my 'ideas neurons' and straighten them out for me!
So I guess I am not really being at all helpful!
What I do think, though - is that it's important to make a start on something. I know that I'll get back into my website and create something worthwhile. I just need a good kick up the proverbial! And getting started is half the battle. You will learn so much as you go through the process of creating a fledgling website and you can then apply what you learn to anything! Just pick something and get started. Most of us don't stick with our first idea because as we learn more, our ideas mature or we find something that we can really stick to and work on. It takes a lot of dedication to have a successful website/blogsite.
I hope I haven't put you off. I'm here if you want a sounding board for specific ideas, but I can't actually decide what is best for you! You have to do that.
I must say that your blog post indicates that you have a better grasp of the whole concept than most people! So you're well on the way!
Cheers
Ellie

Hi Ellie
Many thanks for reading the blog and providing such a considered reply. I really appreciate it. It's good to have a sounding board too - feel free to chat to me too. Funny I was thinking accountability 'partners' on WA may help people stay focused. It's easy to lose momentum, be distracted and chase different bright shiny objects! I suppose a kind of informal coaching network. Anyhow, thanks again and keep in touch.

I thoroughly agree Ruth. Occasionally, someone comes up with an idea to give us a boot along, and more often than not, it gets kind of 'stomped on'. Tony Hamilton launched a 90-Day Challenge last year and a lot of us were all for the idea, but one person objected very strongly and vocally, so it all kind of died. Which is a pity.
I wonder how we could set up an informal coaching network? It probably couldn't be here - would have to be on Facebook or something. I know there a few Facebook groups here but haven't actually joined any of them. I'm totally lost when it comes to Facebook so I wouldn't know where to start to create something like that, but maybe that's a good thing for me to do - at least I would be learning a new skill set! I like the idea of accountability - you know - like "Hey everyone - what have you all achieved this week?" But even stricter than that! I also need a weight-loss accountability partner - someone who would be happy to ask me every week, on the same day - how much have you lost this week? And just keep me to it! I have a severely arthritic knee and my extra pounds it not helping!
I think I will write a blog and see what happens...
Keep in touch - feel free to let me know how you are going. I'm sending you a PM with my email address, so you can contact me there if you wish
Cheers

Thank you Lynne. I just read your financial freedom blog. It caught my interest as I used this term earlier today, and I honestly did start to wonder what I meant by it. Much of what you said resonated with me. It is about freedom and ability to choose. More time with our children and families. Less time with the boss! I was previously 'financially free' and secure. Only now do I really understand the blessings that brought to me. I will probably blog more about my life experiences here and how I view WA in terms of helping me build an online business so as to help me get back on track. Like you, I'm still committed to my work (a bit of a workaholic too and a perfectionist) but I want more balance. Success on my new path here would bring me that. Take care.

Hello Robert
Thank you for the welcome and introduction. I lived in Belfast for 17 years. Belfast has developed and evolved so much; it's a fabulous and thriving city to be proud of now. May peaceful times remain. Now I live in the countryside overlooking Lough Neagh.
I've attached a couple of images taken from my bedroom window. One shows the flooding as the Lough is presently at a 30 year high and the other just caught my attention this week when I woke up to an icy day. I'm very blessed to live here. Hoping success at internet marketing will keep me here as we very much want to buy the house we currently live in. Our dream home.
I see you are Scottish - my other half moved here fom Glasgow to be with me 18 months ago. You'll see from my photos that's quite a contrast for him!!

Hell Ruth.
I'm not long in from seeing my sis onto the plane from Edinburgh back to Belfast.
She's quite involved with the church and was down somewhere in England to a conference and thought she would drop by and see our mother before going home.

My sis and her husband manage a drop in centre for other people of the same church. They come from all over the world and its up to her and her husband to look after them while they are doing their studies.

My sis actually has her main house down in Cavan with two of my brothers nearby but as she works in the North she stays at her son's house in Belfast (he's a minister of the church but stays over here in Edinburgh at the moment before he's posted somewhere else in the world)

Anyway its time I was making a move coz a nice hot bath has my name on it.
Maybe catch you tomorrow if you're around.

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me.

I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to running an online business.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help yet ask nothing in return.

When I came to WA in February 2015, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway Ruth, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing.

Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you.

You can send me a private message if you have questions by going to my profile and clicking on the private message button; https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/grampamike

You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.

Here is a sample of what you will find; Here’s a little inspiration: Update: I wanted to mention that all my recent posts on my website get ranked in the top 5 for my keyword or keyword phrase. So study the tutorials here at WA. They hold the clues for getting top ranking for your web pages.

Hi Phil. So far I think the site is excellent and the community are so very supportive. I'm definitely planning on sticking around. I've been making notes about potential niches and I'm certainly considering your suggestion. The one thing that is important to me is that I don't see this as just more work as I currently have a huge workload. Ultimately I'd like to reduce my working hours and gain a good income from this route. I don't know if I'd ever fully give up my career as it is something I've invested so much in and I love it (most of the time lol).
Thanks for messaging me.

Ruth, I will tell you flat out without a doubt this takes time and work to make it happen. I cut back to 20 hours a week at work to devote more time to my website. It still wasn't enough. At my bosses request, I have just recently gone back to 40 hours a week. If I can make enough in six months at work I'm hoping to take six months off to work exclusively on the website.

I know there are people that can do both, I don't happen to be one of them. There are also people that can walk and chew gum... but I don't chew gum. ;^)

I wouldn't have any chance of building a passion into a business without WA. I've just got to find the formula that works for me, so do you.

All the best.

Hello Ruth, Nice to meet you. Thanks for the follow and I am now following you. I have learned a little bit about you from your reply to Nathaniell below.

WA will be fantastic for you. We are a close community and we are all here to help each other. You sound like me with having multiple interests and passions. We also have the health background in common. After my injury and recovery, I went back to school and completed a degree in nutritional science. As I promote weight loss, diabetes and healthy living sites in the future, I have to be careful to not get too technical or steer anybody in the wrong direction.

As far as your story to tell. You can always start to write it but then leave it private until or if you are ready to share it. Sometimes just the act of writing it gives some relief and closure.

One of the things that I do with my multiple sites and interest is to have idea folders that you can add as you go. Then I have task folders within that idea. The idea turns into a website and then I add tasks to complete into sub-folders. With this strategy, I can pull a folder and begin to work on the task within this folder; even if it is only 10 minutes. I can then work out of another folder if need be. Eventually everything gets done. I hope this helps.

I have written a couple of blogs that can help you as you get started. They are a newbie perspective of starting here since I too am still pretty new. You can read it on my profile under the blog title of: Thank You For Following Me. Where Do I Start? Hope you find it useful. Dave.
