I'm Fixated on Wealthy Affiliate.

Last Update: June 16, 2018

WARM AND FUZZY.

Being here within the community of Wealthy Affiliate is a genuine feeling of family. This is the most focused I've been at any job or opportunity that's come along in awhile! Yes, I love to do other things, but am always eager to get back into the thick of things here!

WHY IS IT SECOND NATURE TO ME HERE?

So, why is it, then, that I've grown so accustomed to this platform space? Maybe because I have so many wonderful acquaintances that I call friends here? Maybe because of the awesomeness of being able to create to my heart's content both within the community and on my websites,----and without being evaluated, judged or bullied? Or, maybe it's simply because I am being educated on a moment-by-moment basis. Perhaps it's all of the above!

THE PROMISE OF A GRAND FUTURE.

Finding this way of life has made all the difference in how I relate to people---happily and confidently. Now, I have a skip in my step, a perfect vision of the future---and a place where I can go to release my artistic and creative abilities. Here, I am in a position of complete freedom to do whatever I choose in which to relay to the world!

WA FITS LIKE A GLOVE!

As an author and web designer by profession, this platform is the perfect fit for me--- intermingling my 2 careers into one place, and giving me the opportunity to thrive at all three!

Being fixated on such a place as this has been an absolute Blessing---one that I will always be grateful for. Life is so much FUN and it is whatever we make to be! SO--------

DREAM BIG

BE POSITIVE

LIVE FREELY

EXPRESS ABUNDANCE

BE TRULY THANKFUL...

FOR THIS IS YOUR TIME TO SHINE!

PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE TO SPREAD THE INSPIRATION! Thank you!

Erin :)!

Inspirational indeed! Thanks for the encouragement, Erin. I do have my moments to where I'm thinking, what now? Is this going to be worth the time I put into it?

After some reflecting: I have to say it does because I've gotten a TON (I mean tons and tons) of traffic this past week to BOTH of my sites. In the thousands and thousands. Not much income or any WA conversions yet. --YET.--

However, my subscriber list is growing for both! :)

Still trying to figure out the autoresponder stuff...copy/pasting the subscribers to MailChimp as they come - THEN go mail them...there has to be an easier way!

I'll have to do some research and figure out what's going on (what's wrong) and THEN go about fixing it.

Keep on going, it will always be worth the effort on the long run. :)

We always have to put up a lot of work to build this, but in the end it will be worth it.

That's awesome, Genelda! Getting that much traffic is exciting and the referrals are bound to come soon!

I use AWeber. I started with MailChimp but switched, as it was too confusing. Check out their help section, though.

It's a unique and wonderful process, that, as Stefan stated, will all be worth it in the long run! Keep your chin up!

Erin :)!

I just started AWeber two days ago for my Affiliate site. Do the subscribers automatically show up in AWeber list or do I have to import them first?

I'm trying, good grief, am I trying. lol

Ha ha, Genelda! You go!

In AWeber, the subscribers automatically show up. I have 2 campaigns going, one for each site and offer---with a Legacy Follow-Up Series for each one. (I wrote 5 emails to send automatically after my Welcome Letter.)

Another process--Ha ha!

Haha, yes another process or two! I have 2 campaign setups for one and I'll soon transfer my other site to AWeber.

So glad it's automated! Thanks for answering.

You know you encourage me Erin. I've had a thought in my head for 3 years now. Someday, I'd love to talk to you about it, maybe through PM. See if you can point me in the right direction. I'm ready to put some feet to my thoughts!!!
Anyway, great post.

Just to let you know: that feeling of family that draws you back? It comes from you first, sweetie! Your posts, but most especially your replies to discussions like this one, are what brings ME close to you, and I have to believe I'm not that unusual!
Thanks for being you, for being here and for your friendship, no matter how identified or defined!

Awwwww, thanks dearly, Tim! Your kind response humbles me to the core! I do have the gift of gab (Ha ha!)--and do it with sincerity.

I would more describe it as a gift of warmth, empathy! Will you claim it?

As usual, great post, Erin! I feel the same way about WA, but am having to take a detour at the moment. Listed my house yesterday, and since I'm selling it turnkey, have to have everything that is not staying with the house out and into storage before the photos are taken or it is shown. SO....I'm in the process of moving out without going anywhere for awhile! Downsizing prior to moving, which I hadn't planned on, but it will be OK once I get everything moved into storage. I'm just having a few antiques that I want to sell and family pieces that will go with me moved, but it's another task that I really didn't need right now, as I still have work in the yard and a little painting inside to finish. However, this, too shall pass, and my house will sell, and then I will truly be moving.

This was helpful I had a friend that ran a marathon. It was amazing. Never thought watching someone run by would be fun. It was. I was intrigued by the people all gathering at the start, soon as the runners were out of site most of the people got in cars and drove to the finish line and waited to wave them home. But there was a much smaller group that dint go to the finish line. They left the start and about 3 miles from the start they sat up a small table with small cups of water to give to the runners as they passed. But the most important part of what they did happened when the runners first came into view and lasted till they would shout encouragement to the weary warriors. They repeated the prices for three more along the trail. At the 3rd my friend said she had almost given up. Then she heard the shouts, “ñgo 24. You got this. Great job. Almost there.” My friend said hearing those voices from the encouragement gang was what gave her the will power and strength to finish the race.
All those words to say to you, “thanks”
Your post gave me the courage and the stamina to redouble my efforts.

I share your feelings Erin! I haven't accomplished as much probably in any project, work or hobby, as I have in WA in such a short time frame. The community here keeps pushing me forward and I begin every morning now days by checking WA on my phone :D

So happy to hear that, Jukka! We have much in common in relation to that---and also furry little animals, too! :)!

All so well stated Erin, I feel the same "warm and fuzzy" feeling here! I love what you said so wisely about releasing your artistic and creative abilities - which you have in abundance in your writing.

Keep on shining brightly my friend, like the Star You Are :)

Humbled, I'm sure, Kaju. We all have artistic and creative abilities. Some just choose not to surface them. You are one who does choose to let yours flow swiftly!!

Thanks so much for your sweetness! :)!
