My name is Sherry from Upper Michigan. I am married and have two kids, four dogs, two guinea pigs, and a cat. Yes, it sounds like a zoo! I do love animals, especially dogs and horses, which are my two favorites. I also like to listen to music, paint, draw, and go camping. I am very excited to learn how to start my websites and any help or advice anyone can give would be great!

**********Updated March 9, 2016***********************************

Hey there,
Just thought I'd do a much needed update...finally! It got kinda long and I hope I don't bore you to tears, but read it if you want...just thought I'd warn you, lol! Cheers~

So, it's been awhile that I've been here now, almost four years. Well, the house is still kind of a zoo, but now my eldest, my wonderful daughter, has moved out after graduating high school along with her cat.

It took some getting used to without them here, but my hubby and 10-year-old son along with the four dogs are still keeping me on my toes. Sadly, the two guinea pigs passed away awhile ago from old age I believe...one almost a year after the other. Now, two painted turtles are in residence...my son always wanted one and well, somehow we eventually ended up with two...didn't want the first one to be lonely, lol!

In the time I've been here, I've learned a lot, but there are always new things to learn. I now have three websites...so, yeah, I learned how to build websites and write content for them. I also learned that it IS possible to make money online...and it's awesome!

I had a few setbacks and things in my offline life that kept me away from here for almost two years...well, I was still "here" as a member, but I wasn't working on much so my first two websites suffered a bit. So, they need updating and I need to get back to working on them regularly.

Plus, I realized it's time to do the niche I should've done in the first place, which is why I started the art site. It's what I've always loved doing anyways, but I wasn't ready to start on it yet...

I guess the first two sites were just a way to see if I can and to see if this actually works. I found out that yes, it does work...at least with the first niche site, which I put quite a bit of work into over the years here. I'm not giving up on either one, but for the moment I'm not focusing on them that much.
New to Wealthy Affiliate? Well, I'd like to say, Welcome to WA!

Anyways, for those of you just starting here, I'd like to recommend that you only do one website. Choose the niche you love....whatever it is, a hobby you have now or something you enjoy doing. Something you'd like to be known for as the person to go to when people need help or have questions.

Don't try to work on more than one niche at a time...it's hard and it doesn't work to get the results you'd really want...take it from me, that was a mistake I made.

Put your focus into one and get it going first. Keep working on it til it's up to the point where you want it...making money for you right? Of course, once it's there don't forget about it either. Keep it updated, add more content to it, engage with your visitors and it'll keep growing along with that money you're making from it.

Most important: Follow the training here!

You know, that green button up there in the left menu? Start there, or the Affiliate Bootcamp, and keep on going through the lessons. Do each task as you go...just reading the lessons and watching the videos aren't going to get it done. Go through the lesson and do the task at the end. It's what will get you closer to whatever goals you set for yourself.

If you get stuck or have questions, just ask someone here...don't keep beating your head on a wall trying to figure it out by yourself. All that does is give you a headache!

It's something I had difficulty at first myself...I've never been one to ask for help even if I were drowning, lol. Now, I realize everyone here is willing to help...you're not "bothering" anyone by asking a question, and there are no "stupid" questions either...

Anyhooo, now that I've almost written a book here...it's rather unbelievable that I used to be afraid to write, eh? Kinda silly, but I was...'til I came here. Stick around and it'll change you...for the better!

I'll see ya around and if you read all this....
Thanks for reading all the way and sorry I've been so long-winded!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Thank you for the great update Sherry and for following me. That sounds like an awesome journey and advice. I made the mistake of working on too many sites, got lost in the process and so now it is back to the drawing board. You are an encouragement to me so thank you.
It wasn't too long!

Hi Sherry,
Thanks for connecting. What an interesting journey you are in! In me you find an animal lover, mainly dogs and cats, of horses I was always afraid... I have a website with cat stories and would appreciate if you take a peak or even write a guest post!
Freedomseekr Premium
Hi Heidi, You're very welcome and thank you too for following me! It's great to meet a fellow animal lover here. I took a look at your cat site, btw. Very nice and interesting stories there! I'll have to go back again to read more sometime soon.

Writing a guest post does sound like an interesting idea actually, although I'm no expert on cats, I could probably share some stories of the ones we used to have...maybe you'd be interested in writing a guest post too sometime.

Anyways, I look forward to hearing more from you and wish you all the best in your journey.

Best wishes :) ~Sherry
