About GBlackburn1
Joined October 2018
Gary here.
Currently resident in the UK. Not sure for how long...
Feel my home is in Athens Greece. However not sure where i should call home. Born in a country that no longer excises, a child of Africa, but also roots in the UK.
This is a new adventure. Been looking at online work for a while now. Honestly this is all new to me.
I am a visual learner. Hands on learning, so this is totally different to anything else I have tried before.
So any advise would be much appreciated. I will need prodding at times, and direction would be useful to keep me on track.
Thanks for your follows and comments thus far.

Hi Gary


Sometimes we stretch ourselves to make new things possible.

There is so much help on hand here at WA... use it - don't struggle and waste time!

To get help...

Ensure you use the search bar at the top menu.

The Live Chat in the Left Menu.

Can't find what you need? Ask a question in the community.

The Help Center in the Left Menu - they fix all the tech stuff when it goes wrong. Don't be shy, they are awesome!

Do the training and ask questions as you go along.

Last tip...

Don't struggle ever - you have paid to get help and it's here.

So search, ask, train...

Do a bit everyday rather than once a week. It will soon start making sense and become familiar.

As your new site grows - you will start to get excited with what you have accomplished and this is what will make the difference.

So hang in there.

Use the tools.

Everyone here has your back!

Have an awesome week!

GBlackburn1 Premium
Thanks Tracy. Will keep going.

Hi, Gary.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Please accept my apology for not getting back to you sooner.

I recently sold my home (to downsize) and the closing was over the holidays. I just now have finally settled into my new surroundings.
It was a plan in the works for some time during 2018.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to The Wealthy Affiliate Open Education Community.

I am pleased to make your acquaintance and look forward to learning, sharing, serving and earning alongside with you as we all move forward here.

Kindest regards from Canada,

Hi, I am just dropping by to say hi and nice to meet you! Thank you for allowing me in your network. I have followed back. I look forward to learning with you here in WA. I wish you the best in all you do…To your continued success...

CarolMeador Premium
Hi, Gary. Nice meeting you. I really enjoyed reading your interesting bio. I guess it might be safe to say that you are truly a child of the world, right? While I'm proud to be an American and love my country dearly, never having lived outside the USA, I envy you the opportunity to learn about and live in other countries and cultures. That's one thing I really enjoy about WA...having friends and corresponding with people all over the world.

OK, I'll get off my soapbox now! Welcome to WA and to my network. Thanks for following me. I followed you back.

Don't worry about needing direction, Gary. The wonderful thing about WA is that there's so much training available to us. I would suggest that the way to get started is to begin with the Certification Course and start the first lesson. Everything is explained step by step, and you learn to build your website by doing it. There's no time limit; you can work at your own pace and go back to repeat lessons as many times as needed. You have truly come to the right place to learn how to build this business.

And we are so fortunate to have our community of WA members who are happy to help us when we get stuck and don't understand or remember something. All you have to do is ask.

Best wishes for your online success, Gary.

Hello Gary And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 460+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Hi, Gary.

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 every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, 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.

Best wishes,
Be Happy!

Not a very descriptive biography G Blackburn. How about you tell us your real name, the area you live, your previous professions and a bit about yourself so we can all get to know you better?

You will not get many followers with this short of a biography.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.

Hey Gary!

Congrats and welcome to WA premium!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

Hey Gary, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)
