About Firstlearn
Joined March 2018
I am Derek, born and raised in the UK. As my picture shows I am no longer a youngster but I am willing to learn as much as I can to improve my financial well being. (Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks).
Some will say I am past my use by date but I just ignore them and carry on anyway.
I have been meddling on the internet for some time, but I have always found an excuse for not being successful, or possibly for not following things through to a conclusion. Procrastination plays a big part in this.
I thought it was time to do something useful with the rest of my life, but to do this I also need to earn an income. (A basic state pension is not at all a good one).
I will be happy to hear from other users and also happy to share my life experiences.

Here we are a month down the line and although I have not progressed as quickly as some may have I am pleased with the progress made so far. Although I have other online blogs I have started to realize why they are not making me money.
Once I get my present blog running the way I want it I will have to go back to these other blogs and rebuild them. All I can say is thankyou WA and the WA community. I have learned more about blogging in a month here than I have learned in years elsewhere.

I think when I started I was too impatient and wanted to learn everything as quickly as possible.

Of course, I set myself an all but impossible task. Now I am just going with the flow, ok so I won't be earning as quickly as some but I am doing a more thorough job of it now.

Good evening to you Derek, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back.
I am also here to make sure my income going into retirement will continue to grow. You are in good company and the only thing keeping you from a six figure income is you. Consistency is the key - that and never quit!
I look forward to answering any questions you may seek. I wish you much enjoyment and success in your online journey.

Don't listen to those "use by date" people. You have many, many years to go. You mentioned one of my main interests there also. Making retirement a little more comfortable by supplementing whatever pensions a person my have.

I hate the mental picture so many people have of the helpless and almost penniless old and weak pensioner.

Remember that your income in old age is only "fixed" is you allow it to be that way.

You are certainly right Dave. That is why I am not sitting around festering like others that I know.
