About GrannyDear
Joined April 2017
Dear All ... Adding a description of myself apparently and of course for a series of serious good reasons is required. Well ... here we come and in short and not too long ... only and solely, by all means, I do not want to take too much time of my dear audience.

So -:), I live in the Netherlands up north in a small rural village close to the North Sea. Quite delightful. I must say, especially in the summer, when sheep and cows are grazing on the green pastures, it feels almost like paradise.

Actually, except for a few breaks I lived all of my life in the Netherlands and being in my sixties now, this might be considered quite a stretch! Being a mother of four and a fresh grandmother I can assure you I have seen, survived and endured a lot.

And now all this brings me to my most favourite pass time - connecting, sharing, caring, encouraging and giving advice. You know, every situation can be improved and it is such a waste of energy in every respect to feel trapped or stuck; there is always a possibility to improve and, as the saying goes in the Netherlands, there are many roads leading to Rome.

Over the years I volunteered on innumerable occasions with great joy. And now the time has come to focus on myself and my dreams and wishes for the next thirty years.

Goede morgen Henrietta,

That is a nice profile. Hopefully, will be visiting Holland next year, it is quite some years ago that I was there.You have a big family, hands full, something I perhaps miss in this life.Some men in my life were handsful but that is different., At the moment I have 11-year-old Cindy a dear Rottweiler Lady, old Missu of more than 20, naughty Sasha, rescued in 2010 and little Jasmin rescued from the middle of the road in 2013.Then there is big Miss Shugar, white and deaf who came with Michael last year in August. If you look at my last WA post-Welcome Refugees there you can meet my US Expat.
In case you need a good source for writing do check my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, you might find it helpful.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Regards, Taetske

Goedemiddag Taetske!!,

Wat leuk om een landgenoot hier op WA te ontmoeten - Loes ging je voor .. maar the more the merrier!!

Indeed I do have a big family, but Taetske believe me ... that empty nest is great!! There is now energy left to spend on personal interest. like WA.

Stumbling across WA is still for me the best ever unexpected avenue!! Connecting daily with my WA friends pays off in every respect from developing interesting connections to obtaining worthwhile insights.

I have two cats .. but since I dived into WA, there is no too much time left .. poor animals -).

I have read you posts on the US expat .. I love coincidences!! they are the cherry on the pie!

As to my websites -- I must tell you, they are still under construction... well .. to be honest .. I do not feel comfortable yet bringing them out in the open. However .. as soon I feel they are ready, I will send you the link. Anyways .. thank you for this subtle and gentle pressure -)!!

Lastly - as you certainly will remember, we here in the Netherlands are talking about the weather .
- goedemorgen buurvrouw, wat een heerlijk weer is het vandaag! vindt u ook niet ?-

Well.. the weather over here is horrendous a nightmare!! buckets of rain as much as the clouds can contain .. this Saturday the weatherforecast promises over 1 inch of cats and dogs. Time to hide tucked away in the comfort of my home and direct my feeling of happiness into the warm embrace of the WA community!!

Nice meeting you - I enjoyed talking to you - wishing you pret ende jolijt with your US expat, all of your darling trouwe viervoeter-vrienden and all this under the bright Spanish sun!

Cheers - Henriette.

Good afternoon Henriette, sorry about the a

Thank you for your long reply. I gladly send you some C's we have ample of that here on the Costa del Sol, around 33 C today.My animals are so called outside animals but they all come in for having their breakfast, each in a different room. In case there is bad weather old Missu comes into her breakfast room = storeroom where she has a loo and a bed, old ladies get 5-star treatment, the others go into the garage with Cindy.
Hope to get a look soon at your website, till then all the best.

Hasta Pronto, Taetske

saw you responded to something I put elsewhere about my frustration and slow learning curve - don't know how your progress has been - but these helped in as I got going.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 


HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hi Dave!!

Thank you at least a thousand times for mentioning those three invaluable links!! In every respect, they are and will be of an important impact on my learning curve.

I am on the move once again and gaining knowledge without unnecessary growing pains-) - avoidable. Better save that energy for daring times -)!

And all along the road I also visited your website!! Looks very good. Besides that, your tone of voice is pleasant and sympathetic; which is utmost important for instilling trust, but most And, you offer interesting insights and after that sound advice - a good combination.

It never before occurred to me, that the Click-Bank Academy is actually nothing more than a vehicle to promote Click-Bank itself, for which the client has to pay - it is customary the other way around........ ah well...-).

Once more - thank you so much for your caring and sharing!!!

Wishing you the rewards you are working on!!

Henriette.

Henriette, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Henriette.

Hi Kyle!,

Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate the checking in!! To be honest .. I must admit I find myself still in a certain state of overwhelm. I never and never and NEVER experienced before such a Fantastic in every respect community!! Perfect courses - your explanation are top of the bill!! and the posts of all my friends are educational and interesting in every respect - speaking of overload - I am reading now websites of WA members!! .. I LOVE IT!!!.
I suppose this coming Wednesday I am back with my own self again, but far much better!! In actuality, I am looking forward catching up with my new self next week adequately adapted to WA!! uhh .. this sounds a bit crazy ... sorry!! that's how overwhelm works!
Last but not least - I will get in touch with you if I find myself amidst of obstacles preventing me of moving forward!

Thank you so much - Henriette.

Hello Henriette and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will surely have realized by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.

Enjoy your day.

Goodmorning Robert,

Thank you for your message! I will certainly read all of your blogs!
The affiliate internet marketing has indeed - pfff.. .such a relieve I do not have to invent the wheel all alone by myself .. I would probably never succeed -:)! - a steep learning curve. I love it, since time is a scarce good once you set your goals and discover they are within reach!!

A few years ago I visited Edinburgh for a week .. I've totally fallen in love with your town!! The Royal Mile is so impressive and those small squares hidden between the buildings , as you in Edinbrugh call them 'Close'- I tried to visit them all.

Bests of my regards - Henriette

Thank you Granny dear

Well done. Enthusiasm goes along way here and I have noticed it's a niche community with people like ourselves, aging but not laying down. In fact I find the older I get the more busier I am.
There's not enough hours.
You are certainly in the right place for connecting, sharing, caring, encouraging and giving advice.

Best wishes

Wishing you a great day! - Henriette.

Thanks Henriette.

It is a small word after all. Feels like everyone is just next door. We communicate to each other from different time zones throughout the day and it works. Time differences are no barrier for communication. It's great. I'm really enjoying it.

Best regards

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! :)

Hello Henriette,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello dear, Henriette and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I'm from Germany living in Switzerland. We do have the same figure of speech. :)

I have to say it is a very lovely picture. You look very good!

So I wish you all the best, success with WA, health and happiness. I love the cyberspace and this very platform here. You can find a very helpful community here.

By the way I love Netherland. Long time ago I married a Dutch in Rotterdam. We are happily ever after ... divorce. ;)

See ya!

Dear Marion, thank you for your warm welcome!! I really do appreciate!
We do indeed have the same figure of speech - foreigners... we do not have the English mother tongue - however, I consider myself extremelyu lucky being able to communicate in English ... without that, there would have no WA for me for example .
You know the Netherlands .. a nice country indeed... but I think Switzerland had so much more to offer!!

Wishing you a great weekend !

Henriette.

But Dutch people have a better sense of humour I'm sure. I'm so grateful being able to communicate in English. I learned it late with 41 and I love that language, I always did. But still, it*s not got enough to make my websites in English. I have to learn...

I wish you a great weekend too. Thank you Henriette!

Hey there Henriette.

Glad you decided to take advantage of the free membership here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Now that you’ve joined the WA family, it’s time for you to get clear on what you are here to achieve. Do you...

want to build a profitable blog business?
want to learn how to get traffic?
want to learn how to do SEO?
want to get free hosting?
want a helpful community?
want a step by step action plan that will GUARANTEE success?

All that you are looking is available for you on the left-hand side of the screen.

Here is what you should do first.

1) Fill out a quick (short) bio and add a profile picture.

This will help you make connect with other fellow members of WA

2) Start Exploring WA.

Start exploring what WA is all about. My suggestion would be to hit the green “Get Started Here” button. It is a 10-day step-by-step process which will show you how you to start building your online empire!

3) Read this amazing story by a fellow WA member:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/parre/blog/my-first-10-000-month

It will show you what you can achieve here at WA if you simply follow the training process.

-----------------------------------------------

If you enjoy Wealthy Affiliate, which I am sure you will, then you should consider going premium in the near future.

When you are ready to go "Premium", you will open up all the training modules, webinars, courses and content available at Wealthy Affiliate.

Here are just SOME of the bonuses you'll get if you decide to go premium in your first 7 days:

1) A 59% discount on your first month (only $19 - $0.61c per day)

2) You’ll have me as your own personal mentor in WA.

I’ve been here 4 years now and achieved all my dreams with WA, I want to help you do the same.

3) Free hosting for your website (valued at $12 per month each).

I have 5 blogs hosted at WA, this alone saves me $60 per month on hosting costs.

*And they wonder why I love WA so much* LOL !

-----------------------------------------------

I’ll leave you to it now Henriette .

Just wanted to drop by and introduce myself and the WA community to you.

Just know that I am here to help you so feel free to reply back on this comment or leave me one on my own profile here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/chris-lee
