About Gartenl
Joined March 2019
I am 62 years old and tired of trying to live on social security. I have been looking for something I can do for quite some time now. Recently I discovered a way to set up an online store. It is called Gartens Gallery Plus. I will be selling some of my own paintings, some from people in my Art Guild, Plus I have friends who do marvelous paintings things and sell them in consignment shops around the state. It is taking a few days to get it set up. After all, I am not of my grandchildren's age where they were born with a laptop in their hands. They do have the help setting up here that they have on the other site. The plan was to sell fine art and everything to make art in many mediums. Wish me luck and we all be more creative people.

Thanks for the follow back, and thanks for the kind words. Don't let your hubby make you quit, after all, you are not spending any money on WA,(other than the monthly fee, of course) just your time watching training videos and listening to other member's ideas on how to write a money-making web post on your free website here at WA.
I read that you are into painting. I haven't tried it yet but I have watched some absolutely fascinating videos on youtube about the acrylic pour methods and they look stunning and simple to do...I may get into that soon and start making youtube vids with my mother and I doing something like that as well!
Good luck in all your ventures and adventures in 2019 and beyond!
gartenl Premium
I don't have the set-up to do videos. Maybe someday. Have a good one!

Hi Laura and thank you for following me. You have made a wise decision in joining WA and you can get all the training you need to set up a successful ecommerce store here. Just follow this simple strategy; work through the training and complete all the tasks before moving on to the next lesson, ask questions of the WA community if you need answers, write great content for your website on a regular basis and focus on your long-term goals. Wishing you every success with your online business, Gary

I have a link to put in my header. I am working on getting my site verified. Anyway, we are supposed to go to our site appearance and go down to the editor. In my case, it says theme editor. It will not open and says I need to message support before making changes. It is locked up tight. I don't really want to bother them again. Does anyone know what I can do?
BvVugt Premium
Most of the verification codes can be put in General Settings of All in One SEO. Like the ones for Google, Bing and Pinterest.

No struggle with putting html code in the header, but all nicely in a row in All in One SEO. That's where I've put mine anyway.
gartenl Premium
I will give it a try. Thank You. so much for your answer. Many times I have asked questions and got no reply.
BvVugt Premium
That surprises me. In my experience people are very willing to give help and support. And often fast too. I hope it was just a coincidence, that you were somehow overlooked and will get the help you need from now on.

Good luck with adding your code and building your business.
merlynmac Premium
What is it you're trying to verify? If it's not one of the standard options in the All in One SEO Pack settings then you can use the Headers and Footers plugin (you'll need to install it). Once you have it installed and activated you can paste the code into the header or footer section of that plugin to accomplish your task.

Good evening to you, Laura, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back.
Earning online income is a necessity for most people nowadays. Health insurance, home, and auto insurance aren't getting any cheaper. It is wise to become a student again and learn the skills that will stay with you forever and keep you potentially earning income 24/7.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve success. I wish you much enjoyment and success in your climb to the top.
gartenl Premium
That is wonderful. Thank You

Hi Laura,

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months; for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common trait for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey. Remember, little steps are better than no steps!

Best wishes,
Be Happy!

Hello. Nice meeting you. Enjoyed reading your interesting bio. It must be exciting to have a venue for selling your artwork, as well as some of your friends'. I'm thinking of making my second website's niche about quilting and taking orders for my one of a kind, named, numbered and signed folk art quilts. Only problem is, it takes so long to make one! Welcome to WA and to my network. Thanks for following me back. Best wishes for your online success. Carol

Each time you do it , it should go faster.
CarolMeador Premium
Doesn't work that way for me. I don't use a pattern....the fabric is my muse...tells me what to do with it and where to put it.
gartenl Premium
Oh No, sorry. I was talking about setting up websites. If a person decides they want more than 1 store.
CarolMeador Premium
Oops! Yes, I agree with you. I've only built one site so far, and I'm remiss in adding new content due to life's unexpected twists and turns, but everything about the training becomes easier each time we do it.

You recently took me up on my offer to be in a mutual help group for WA members doing the super affiliate challenge. This was in my blog post .

I have now created my website for this challenge. It's https://superaffiliatechallenge.com.

Please go to that site and click Q&A from the main menu. It's a thread created especially for this group. It's password protected and the password is wasac (for wealthy affiliate super affiliate challenge). I look forward to your participation and mutual support.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

No matter how you arrived here, you are in for a treat! The courses offered to help you build an online business provide excellent value!

It's been only three months since I joined WA. My website is developing extremely well. It was indexed in Google within two weeks of creating it. Several of my posts are listed on the 1st pages of the major search engines. And I have received great comments from engaged individuals.

I know it will take time to make decent money online. The trajectory is usually exponential. It starts slow as you are learning and implementing new principles. After a period of time, you will reach a tipping point where the traffic, and subsequent sales will take off. Be patient. Follow and implement the training as you progress on a daily basis.

As long as you never give up, you will meet and even exceed your financial goals. If you get stuck, post a question in the discussion area associated with each lesson. You will get your answer.


SnazzyIT Premium
Welcome and congratulations on becoming a Premium member! You have made a great decision and you will not regret it.
If you haven't already noticed, the community support is amazing and the training is just out of this world (well the internet world, lol).
Anyway, as the saying goes: You Only Live Once, so make this the best thing that has ever happened in your life.
I am happy to be part of your network and to be part of your story here at WA.
Best wishes,

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

Hello Garten, Welcome to the bunch, All of us are trying to find our way to fame and fortune. I am an 85 year old farmer trying to get a web store set up and it is very different from what I have done all my life. Are U the pretty young lady with the cute little dog?? Welcome to our bunch. Jim

will I be learning how to connect my store to Google, yahoo and other search engines?
What happens to my store if after a few months I'm not making enough to pay my dues. I am on SS and that doesn't go to far. I didn't open this for a hobby.
suzieq Premium
Hi Laura, and welcome to WA.
Yes, you'll certainly learn how to do that. It's all part of the training here. Just follow it along, step by step, and try not to skip anything.
If you get stuck, just ask lots of questions, haha. Everyone is here to help!
Best Wishes,

I am a retired RN, I had to retire early because of an injury. I really miss being part of something. If I can get some cash coming in I can send a % of it to The Redcross or St. Judes Children's Hospital.. That would make me feel like I am helping again.
Cherry21 Premium

Hey Laura, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. I know you are going to love our WA community.

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, you are in the right place.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out:
Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)

Follow this step by step course and you will be on your way to success.

That's right.

Trust me this training works. Just follow the lessons and if you have any questions Laura, give me a shout.

One more thing you should know.

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA
you can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

Talk to you soon!

gartenl Premium
I just do not think I can pay the $49.00 a month with my SS income. So I will have to wait until my store is making a little money. Then I will need help to connect the 2. Thanks for your support. Laura
