About EricaCrystal
Joined February 2017
Hello! Well, I have been here almost 6 months now, and have learnt so much!

I am a stay at home mum, with an energetic toddler, and am wanting my own income to supplement my partners.

Up until 2016 I was working as a geologist, but have always had a passion for writing; although up until now, it was only for creative writing.

My site is coming along slowly; I've found it hard to stay consistent with my posting schedule. But I'm tweaking things as I go, and I'm getting there, so I'm not worried. It is a creative writing niche site aimed at busy wannabe writers like myself:)

I am also interested in yoga and healthy living, but I know I have to only focus on the one niche site at first. Would love to really start the Bootcamp training properly, and I think I will!

Sorry, my message got cut off on the chat so I’ll finish it here. I don’t have that much on my site so I’m not all that worried about losing the content, but maybe I’ll try starting another dummy site for practice. Thank you for your help!

Hi Erica.
I was about to give you feedback on your post "How to finish writing a story". But, I cannot actually find anything do give feedback at, more than your page looks fantastic! You have come a long way and it seems you have no problem finish what you start! ;)

Instead, I have a question for you. How have you made that "Spread the word" icon row with Pinterest, Facebook, Facebook like, Twitter, Google plus and SumoMe in the left of your page? Do you have any link describing how you made it maybe?

Good luck with your pages!
EricaCrystal Premium
Wow thank you:)
Still working on the website... when I make a little money I'll finally be getting a paid theme, and a paid logo:)

I just played around the settings in SumoMe Plugin:) it's a great little plugin, my favourite after All in one Seo.
I'll see if I can find you more info, once I get on my laptop.

Lovely to meet you,
EricaCrystal Premium
Here are some screenshots from the settings tab in the Sumo plugin:

The plugin is called: "Sumo" by Sumome.

Hope this helps

Thank you for that! I will look into it! =)

Hey Erica. Thanks for referring me to Holly's page, and talking about your similar struggle balancing your creative writing niche with your alone writing time. Unfortunately as a newbie I can't PM (and I don't want to make the leap to Premium just yet), but if you have Facebook I can definitely PM you there or exchange emails and talk more about it! Holly's page is definitely on my list of must-sees I hope yours is next!:)

Thanks, Ingrid:)
Oops - I just added my FB page to my links on this page, down to the right. You can contact me there, or through Twitter, which I use a lot. Twitter is great for connecting with fellow writers.

You should definitely take advantage of, at least, the $19 starting month - to get a real taste of what it's like here.
Even though I'm still a struggling writer, I have fallen in love with online marketing, blogging and becoming a successful online entrepreneur. This place has definitely opened my eyes to what's out there and what's potentially achievable.

I'm also ready to take on Indie-publishing now too:) We can do it!

Hi, Erica and thanks for adding me to your network. I have added you a well.

I was never much into writing. Even stabs at a journal really didn't pan out very well. Even my early attempts at creating content for my first website left me wondering if I would ever get to a thousand words and, my typing speed was atrocious.

Now, two years later, I rarely write anything less than 1500-1700 words. I learned two-handed typing in high school but that was waaaaay back in ninth grade. Very slow. Much better now.

This is such an amazing training platform. Keep learning and moving forward and soon you will start to see your efforts pay off.

I'm moving forward,

Erica, I am just reading your comment on my Kobo H20 post and came here to read about you. I took a quick look at your site and will return to read it more thoroughly.

Geology! Great. I am a civil engineer and I did some of this in my course. I am also building on a geological transition zone (that, in spit of three geotech reports) didn't appear until I started the digging. So there was basalt, sandstone, blue metal and a few more mixed in.

And now I will keep in touch.

Hello Erica 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 then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.
PSheridan Premium
Hello and welcome to WA. Thanks for the follow. Wishing you much success and prosperity here. I am attaching a link to my thought for the day - hope you enjoy.

Hello Erica,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)
