About GuineaPig
Joined September 2016
I am new to online marketing & working on websites and or blogs so please bare with me.

My background is in Horticulture and I have been involved in marketing horticultural services and or products since graduating form college (30+ years). I am now learning about and working part time in an Aquaponic Greehouse system ( a system that really works ). I hope to blog about Aquaponics when I get my own greenhouse & system built.

For now I am just hoping to learn how to set up a website so I can start blogging about my attempts to try to lose some weight, which has become very difficult over the last year, using cheap or free products for a month and prove or disprove some of the products available, thus the name Guinea Pig was born.

I am excited that I found Wealthy Affiliate because I would love to start making money on-line sharing what I know about and love to do as well as my successes or failures in my attempt to lose weight and if I can learn how to connect my new website/blog to a new business website I joined with my first weight loss product, I could really start to make enough money that retirement may be something I can afford to do well, sooner than later.

Brek, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

I just enlarge the mowing image but still can't identify the plant. I did a couple of years of agriculture at UBC before taking up travelling as a hobby.

Then settled on civil engineering,

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

I appreciate that, I look forward to it as well. As for the plant that is (industrial) hemp.

Australia has finally OKed medicinal hemp and it is about time.

They have already been growing hemp there and developing the harvest/dicorticator that produces the fiber at the same time as cutting the crop. I would love to go to Australia to visit the hemp grower that developed it.

Hello Brek and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined in June you will surely have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
You get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

Thank you for the offer, I am planning on a "Health and Wellness" niche where I can discuss weight loss ( in men over 40 ) and about healthy alternatives ( herbs etc..) & I can describe how these have worked or not worked for me & find good products to see along with it.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Sure, you can definitely head in this direction and as you build out your website, there are likely going to be 1,000's of potential products/services that you can promote Brek. :)

I like it.

In my opinion, l would choose Aquaponic systems. Weight loss is little bit too competitive especially when you are just getting started. Your marketing skills will become handy as your recommend products. WA is the best place to get started if you are totally new to internet marketing. You have the training, tools and support. All the best.

Brek,

A few days ago you created a Free account at Wealthy Affiliate, but you haven't completed setting your account yet. It takes 2 minutes or less. This is important for your account to remain functional ...... 'just in case'. This short video will show you how its done I know there's a good chance you're very busy at the moment ...

... but I really think you'll kick yourself if you miss out on this
proven step-by-step system without even giving it a try.

Remember - this isn't some "home study course" where you'll have
to read 100s of pages or watch dozens of hours of videos...

This is a no-fluff, step-by-step blueprint that can literally have
your affiliate website up and running after lesson 4.

Please note: You will be offered a 59% discount if you upgrade to Premium Membership during your 7-day trial. This is entirely optional and you can stay on Free Membership for ever.

You don't have to commit to anything .... ONLY your time of course.

You can also earn some money without upgrading your membership. You will keep ALL the money to yourself, if you decide not to continue with Wealthy Affiliate.

Lastly, I know there's a good chance you've been burned in the past ...

Why not "kick the tires" and see for yourself what it's all about. Read Wealthy Affiliate Reviews any where on the Internet, talk it over with your friends or family - then decide?

If you decide, this isn't for you ..... all is well. Your account will be preserved in case you will realize that affiliate marketing is ONE of the '1% legit ways to make money on line'. Since, Wealthy Affiliate is free to join, you have absolutely nothing to lose.

I PROMISE you this works better than anything else l've tried ... MLM, Surveys, Freelancing e.t.c.

Best regards,
Melody
