About Genelda
Joined May 2018
Hi. My name is Genelda and I'm Deaf. I use hearing aids for assistance, but still can't hear very well. You can call me Gina. I love gardening, animals, and writing, just to name a few.

I have an AS in Management Information Systems, but it's been hard to find a place to hire a Deaf person after I lost my other job when I got diagnosed with cancer. Not to worry, I'm a survivor. I beat it! :)

My goal is to make a decent, sustainable living online and make it to where I never have to worry about my disability getting in the way ever again.

Hi, Gina. Enjoyed reading your interesting profile. I had a friend in college who was deaf. She spoke with a bit of an accent that I now recognize as how the hearing impaired sound. I thought she was a foreign exchange student. She was amazing. I had no idea she was deaf until she told me.

Thanks for following me back. I look forward to getting to know you better.

Hi Carol. Thank you and I'm glad you enjoyed the read. I speak "with a bit of an accent" as well.

It's interesting to me when I hear about how others meet a Deaf person. Not all of those have a good ending, but there's always a chance of a great friendship developing. An understanding if you will.

You're welcome and thanks for the follow back. I look forward to getting to know you, too.

The last time I saw Yvonne, she and her husband, who is also deaf (as a result of a car accident) were visiting us in St. Louis. We went to St. Flags Over MidAmerica, and they were conversing in sign language with people several feet away from us in line for one of the rides. She did not learn sign language until she went to the Kansas City area to attend Occupational Therapy Assistant school. KC has a large deaf community, and she became very active in it. The last I knew, she was an interpreter for the hymns at her church. I've lost track of her over the years because I've moved several times, but would love to know how she's doing.

Maybe you can find a way to track her down. I use ASL (American Sign Language) when I can and I do use my voice, too.

I have been around those areas. I used to attend workshops/meetings in the KC area and St. Louis, too.

This friend of yours, I wish I could meet! Well, you too. :)

Hello Genelda and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

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

Hi Robert. Thank you for the welcome and the returned follow.

It is definitely one steep learning curve, but I knew it wouldn't be an instant thing.

I have gone through so many blogs and videos. I will keep your blogs in mind!

All the best!

Hi Gina. Being deaf can be a hindrance and a curse but it can also be a blessing. I have a granddaughter that is 75% deaf but you would not know it except that she signs quite well for a 2 year old. She inspires me on a regular basis. I know that you will be able to do this. Follow the training and you will go far. Be patient with yourself if you don't understand something right away. We all go through this. If you have problems reach out to the community for help.

Welcome, Gina!

Although I am not deaf, I've been wearing hearing aides for almost 10 years now. It sometimes feels as if hearing loss is one of those forgotten disabilities.

How amazing that you were able to find Wealthy Affiliate to learn how to create a profitable online business. All the best to you, Gina!

Hi Gina

Welcome to WA - we are so happy to have you here! :-)

Here is a little trick on how to utilize other people's posts to earn commissions, while you are building your own website: We found that if we watch a video, pause, then do what Kyle has done, watch, pause and do again, it is almost like watching over Kyle's shoulder and before you know it, you'll be well on your way.

If there is anything that we can help you with, please feel free to give us a shout!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
