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!

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

Hello Sherry,
Following the age old tip of visiting the websites of those who interacted with me, I was impressed with your sites. I'm browsing the many excellent articles on your Boss Free Opportunities site including the blog post on writer's block.

My problem before is that I have read a couple of similar articles without getting anything afterward. Your article is different because you suggested something relevant to the problem. Something that can work for me. I love music and it always works for me - I mean, getting into the right mood and then start writing again, after getting stuck for days.

Hi jedmed,
It's great to meet you here and be a part of your network. Thank you for the follow back and the kind words...happy to hear you enjoyed checking them out!

It's also great to hear that you found that post helpful in overcoming writer's block...music is what helps me, so I'm glad to hear it just may do the trick for you too. If it weren't for music, I don't think I'd get around to doing much of anything most days, lol.
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hi Sherry. Thanks for following me. You have an interesting profile, and I agree it's better to start off with one niche website. And yes, I know firsthand how hard it is to just manage with one website while trying to juggle with offline life.

I really like your dog website. Looking forward to connecting with you. - Tina

Hi Tina, You're very welcome and thank you for the follow too!

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed checking out the dog site...thank you for doing so! It's the first niche site, and still a work in progress...but, as I've come to understand, a site is never completely done if you want to keep up with the competition. There are always things to improve upon as things change.

I'm looking forward to connecting with you as well and glad to be a part of your network. Hope your journey here is going well!
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hi Sherry, nice to meet you. Thank you for the follow. We have very similiar interests! My house used to be a zoo with cats, dog, guinea pigs, rabbits, rats, hamsters, mice, fish and a skink! I am now down to 5 dogs...whew! I haven't drawn in quite a while (no time) or picked up my guitar lately (again, no time) but I always tell myself that I'll get back to it one day lol. Good advice...I have three sites on the go but am concentrating all my attention on the one I started during my training here. All the best to you...
Cheers,
Dawn :D

Hi Dawn,
You're welcome! No problem at all. It's great to meet you too. Sorry for the late reply, btw. Somehow I must have missed your comment here.

Anyways, it's great to meet a fellow animal lover. Wow, now that's quite the zoo! I've never owned a rabbit, mice, rats, or a skink. Although I'm sure my son would love to own every one of them...now, we're down to the 4 dogs and 1 painted turtle...our bigger one passed away a couple of weeks ago sadly. But, our smaller one, Ms. Zippy is still feisty as ever...never knew a turtle could move as fast as she does, lol.

Well, I've been drawing quite a lot now, but haven't picked up the guitar in a long time either. I'd like to though one of these days. Glad to hear you're focusing on just one site at the moment...it's much easier to get one going the way you want to first. Just keep going on it and it'll get there!

Best wishes to you :) ~Sherry
