About Houndog7602
Joined July 2013
I am semi retired, what does that mean you say, I am tired of working a full time job. I spent over 30 years in the hotel industry and most recently almost 10 in new home sales. Both careers are very rewarding, both personally and financially, but having to work 50, 60 maybe even 70 hours a week is just draining. I do have a part time job, mostly on weekends conducting wine tastings at various grocery stores mostly.

Thanks for the following. I don't know how you do so much. It will be a matter of setting your priorities. I have to slice and dice my time too, but things are changing now that I have decided to only work the online stuff. This I can do all at home.

Thanks for the follow, Houndog. There's no doubt your strong work ethic will serve you well here at WA. I'm curious: are you the guy offering the wine, or the one drinking it? Long ago, when I was young and stupid, I tried guzzling a two-liter flask of burgundy wine. That didn't go well for me. I've been trying to learn from my mistakes ever since. I no longer have to worry about fixing the 'young' part, so I now focus completely on fixing the 'stupid'. It's an uphill battle. Anyway, welcome to WA. :-)

MOST of us do learn by our mistakes, don't we ! And yes, I do offer samples of wine and also enjoy a glass or two on occasions.

Hello, Thanks for the follow. You certainly sound like a busy person. I feel retired after reading about you working that many hours. I am self employed and don't have a lot of work.

Hi Houndog, I see you still have the Google code on the top right of your website. Let me know if I can help. Maybe you placed the code above the head tag. The Google code needs to go in the header.tpl like this: <head> google code </head>. notice the forward slash on the second tag. Place the code above this second or closing tag. Also remove where you have it now, if it's not between the opening and closing tags like shown.

The Google code in the upper left (sorry, I wrote top right before. I guess I don't know my left from my right) of your website should not be visible like it is. When the code is properly place, there is no sign of it on your site. I sent you a link to a tutorial before. I don't know if you saw the tutorial. If you did and are having a hard time following what you have to do, I will try to help. Us posting back and forth is slow, but will work. I posted the tutorial link 3 days ago, 1 day before the post you just responded to. I need to know what you did already with Google Analytics so I can help correct things. Try and post a description as to the steps you took with Google.

Hi, I don't know if you've gotten your verification issue cleared up, but I'm suffering the same problem. I went ahead and tried to get my site verified through Google webmasters and have not been successful yet. I registered my domain through Godaddy as well. My code is shown in Godaddy where Google directed me to manually place it if the quick procedure didn't work. I also used my FTP to place a code on my site. The code is on the site, I think it's in the right place. Still no verification.
I'm going to give it some time and see if it resolves itself. If it doesn't I'll have to dig-up some help.

Hi, did you get your site verified yet? If not, there's a tutorial that worked great for me. I set up Google Analytics and webmaster verification without the use of an add-on, with the help of this tutorial https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/verifying-siterubix-website-with-google. I don't know if you saw this one already. If not definitely check it out. Let me know how things work out.

Hiya - same here, at 50 working fulltime is no longer for me. So I am in semi retirement as well. I get a government pension - not enough to live on but a nice base. I am starting my own HR Coaching business, I also invest in real estate. WA gives me something else to hopefully succeed with. A long, interesting road ahead !

Hi. My name is Emma. Thanks for following. I'm new here at WA and am hoping that at last I've found something that can help me live the life I've always wanted to. I'm tired of working for peanuts. While I don't particularly want to be wealthy, I certainly would enjoy being able to pay all of my bills in full, buying things I need, going out to dinner most days, and once in awhile taking a vacation. Prince is great, by the way. I'm a cat person, as you can see. I wish you much success.
