It's hard not to get caught up in the panic we see happening around the world with COVID-19. I told myself I wouldn't panic. That as long as I and the rest of my family were taking the proper precautions all would work out fine.I've pretty much stayed off social media, specifically Facebook, for over a year now. But recently I've been looking around and found myself getting sucked into the panic. In one group I'm in, there was a rumor about Ireland going into Lockdown and everyone was panickin

Hi guys,I know I'm not here much so please forgive me my request. My training here at WA has allowed me to set up my own business as a freelancer. One of the drawbacks is that there are times when I take on a gig that I think will be a no-brainer only to find out that things are more complicated than they seem and it's hard to get technical support when you work for yourself!Joomla/VIKBookingHere's the technical bit:I am trying to update Special Prices on a Joomla site for a new client through

Hey guys,One of my new years' resolutions is to streamline things and get more organized. One thing that has been bugging me for ages is trying to add my WA email accounts to my iPhone. I have an iPhone 5S. Yes, I know. It's old. It's actually a hand-me-down phone from my daughter who was gifted with an iPhone 7. But I love it even though it's a little glitchy. Adding WA email accounts to my phone has been on my radar for awhile but I just haven't gotten around to it. What made this more urgent

Hey guys,I've had to take a really hard look at the way I've been working lately. I'm writing this post because I know there's a lot of you out there that suffer from the same thing--the dreaded analysis paralysis.So What is Analysis Paralysis?If you have ever sat in front of your computer trying desperately to figure out where to get started on a task, you could be suffering from analysis paralysis which is essentially overanalysing a situation. So if you are wondering how to get started on wr

Hey guys,I wanted to tell you about a little test I did recently. I'm a diehard Jaaxy fan and have been for many years. It has served me quite well. But other people have their own strategies as well and sometimes it's good to check out other keyword methods. I'll tell you about my recent experience. Afterall, it's always a good idea to know how to find keywords for your business.There's a relatively well known Youtuber I started following last year. He's an Internet marketer who says he's made

Hey guys,Just wanted to give you a heads up about Canva being hacked. This article from zdnet.com just came across my newsfeed on Facebook. 139 million users have had their accounts hacked. This information has been verified. Information that has been stolen include usernames, real names, passwords, email addresses, and city and country information.For those of you that don't know what Canva is, it's a free tool that is highly recommended here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Hey guys!Is it jut me or does WA have yet another awesome feature! Today I opened my account and found a new link on the dashboard.

Morning, everyone! So I logged into WA a few minutes ago to find that I had earned a badge! I was pretty shocked because I don't spend a lot of time here unfortunately. I thought there must be some mistake.My badge is for being a member for 6 years! 6 YEARS? Actually, it's longer. I can't remember a time when I wasn't a member of WA. I found WA way back in the beginning when they were just getting started. I joined for a while then left then came back and eventually became a premium member. I t

Spring has sprung here in the ol' sod and this morning I was greeted with a threatening message from the CIA. I guess they have been monitoring my computer activity and for a cool $10K in bitcoin, they can make all my questionable site visits disappear!I thought I got rid of these scammers last month when I blocked them. Last month it was a similar request for bitcoin but from someone else. Here's the content:*****************Case #25476981Distribution and storage of pornographic electronic mat

Hey guys. I thought I'd give you an update on my previous post - Page Rank Gone Awry. I left the post for a few days and checked it again just now. Check this out below:As you can see, I went from 11 to 96 then back up to 11 in just a few days! Not only that, I also hit position number 3 for Bing and Yahoo! So yay!!!I won't pretend that I understand Google and how they rank articles but I'm just glad my ranking came back!
