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

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!

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

Hi Pernilla,
You're very welcome, no problem at all. Thank you too for following back!

I thought your comment was very well said over there on Craig's blog, so I couldn't help but like it...as it's very true, I can't stay away from WA for a day either...at least if I have any choice in the matter!

Anyways, it's great to meet you here and thank you too for the kind words...if you ever need a hand with anything just ask. I'm usually here at some point in the day or night, lol.

Best wishes in your success and hope your day is an awesome one! :) ~Sherry

Sherry, you are cheering me up!

Yes, I have got an awesome day. Just have to tell you I have finally written the content of my 3 main pages. It took a great deal of time (several days), but now I am happy. Can't wait to go on with the course.

Thanks for being there if I need support. I hope I can help you too, or at least cheer you up when needed!

Hey Pernilla,
Awesome to hear you've gotten the 3 main pages done! Yes, it does take a great deal of time to get them done...it did for myself as well when I first started out here. Anything worthwhile takes time...but, once you get used to writing more it'll get easier and faster.

Glad to hear from you btw! I'm always happy to help if I can...feel free to send a PM or even if you just need cheering up too! I think we all have our "down" days.

I'm certainly looking forward to learning from you too...we all bring new ideas here whether we're new at this or not, at least that's my opinion.

And, btw...you just cheered me up by your reply here!
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hey Pernilla,
Just got here awhile ago...had to work my day job today, it's at a long-term care facility (mainly for elderly patients). It's been a long day being up since 3:30 a.m., but good otherwise...and, I just got here after going to Jay's webinar here, which is always inspiring.

Hope your day has been wonderful too...see you around WA :)

Hey again Pernilla!
Oh, I've had plenty of time to relax with the past couple days off and tomorrow too, Monday...but, of course, with time off I've been busy on my sites as much as possible anyways.

As for the day job, thank you for the kind words! It does get hard to do though...
Glad to hear you've had a wonderful day and I hope tomorrow is too!
See ya around and take care too :) ~Sherry

Good day, Sherry and thanks for adding me to your network. I have added you to mine as well.

Read you last post, "Time To Move On" and want to send along my prayers for your strength and hope that you are making progress on the niche you really wanted to do.

I can relate to setbacks in our lives. Had one last year, a minor heart attack followed by quadruple bypass. It's been eight months and, like you, it's time to move on and get back to "the niche" and life and make this work.

Thankfully, I not only have God by my side but I also have an awesome wife that has stood by me through the hard stuff. I hope you have people like that surrounding you as well.

All the best and I look forward to connecting from time to time....

Wayne

Hi Wayne,
You're very welcome and thank you for adding me back! Thank you too for reading that last post of mine, and also for the prayers. As for the niche, I'm making some progress in it, but still need to work at it much more often than I have lately.

I've noticed I'm getting visitors already on that niche site, much more than I expected since I don't have too much on it yet and haven't really done too much promoting it yet. Plus, I'm slowly, but steadily getting more followers that are in the art niche...

Oh no, a heart attack! Sounds like a scary time to go through. Health problems sure can be a setback..., especially one like you've had! Happy to hear you're doing better and ready to get back to your niche.

Yes, thankfully I too have not only God, but an awesome hubby and even some of my other family members that have been there for me in the hardest times...just knowing they're there when you really need them sure helps a person get through the tough times, doesn't it?

Anyways, I hope all is going well with your health and your niche too! I'm definitely looking forward to connecting with you again, so feel free to stop in here or even send a PM...and, also if you need any help with anything just let me know. I'm happy to help if I can!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hi Sherry, Thank you so much for following back. I reckon this is the best place where we can learn and increase your exposure on IM. The training and tutoriaIs are top notch and I believe the WA community is the place you want to be with on your journey to build a passive income. [Kelsey]

Hi Kelsey, you're very welcome and thank you too for the follow! You're very right, there is no other place like WA to learn IM and so many other things. At least as far as I've found, and I'd have to say the community here is awesome!

Wishing you much success in the new year!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry
