First Blog: Website is a Go!

Last Update: June 11, 2022

Hello, everyone and thanks so much for dropping in to read my first blog post!. I've not long been at this whole affiliate marketing thing. It's been quite the journey already just to make it here! As we all know, there are tons of ways to reach success as affiliates. The different marketing methods we use, the variety of products and offers we promote, the various ways we build an audience, etc., all can lead to success. For some, the same success can be elusive, even using tried and battle-tested methodologies. For many, like myself, success has been hidden behind a barrier of deception and training by "gurus" who only give you enough information and resources to help make their fortune. Here at Wealthy Affiliate, I've been newly refreshed by the transparency and wealth of motivation, support, and guidance offered by the community.

I'm writing this post not only in commemoration of a personal accomplishment of my own. I just finished publishing my first website, and while it's certainly far from complete, it is a show of progress and a starting point so I wanted to take a moment to publicly thank Kyle and Carson for presenting this as part of the free membership. I'm certain that countless others aside from myself feel the same way. So, again, thank you, gentlemen, both for the resources to help so many of us get ourselves going and the work you've put into building the WA community into what it is. I can only hope to give back by providing value to the community as my journey continues. I truly look forward to doing so.

Having your first website up is a HUGE accomplishment and you should, indeed, be celebrating. Everything you do is a motive for celebration, no matter how small you think the achievement was, always be proud of how far you’ve come. Build your business while also taking care of your well-being and mental health.

Ty so much, Steph. I'm with you completely. Making sure to note progress and not allowing negative thoughts to creep in and take away from that is key. I truly appreciate the support and will continue on making the best I can of this experience, regardless of monetary gain. I get a lot of joy from being able to provide value to others in whatever way I can. Sharing motivational posts, directing people to information and resources I struggled to find, and even when I promote a product, service, training, etc, that I am confident in or steering them away from things I know will waste their time. At the end of the day, I can feel good knowing that I did what I could in that moment to try to bring something to the table without expectation of anything in return. The joy I receive from helping is much greater than any monetary gain that might come from my endeavors.

Of course! And hey, it’s alright if you have your doubts or if you’re not feeling so positive at some point. We’re humans and we’re allowed to feel whatever it is that we feel. Don’t burn yourself out tho. I’m glad you’re finding joy in the small things. With time and patience I know it will be rewarding.
