Joined February 2016
Hi

I have 2 amazing sons and daughters-in-law, and a loving daughter and son-in-law, and am a Grandmother to 7 wonderful Grandchildren.

I know nothing about building a website, but I am giving it a shot.

Have lots of hobbies. I love gardening, quilting, machine embroidery, all sewing actually, drawing, oil painting, decoupage, mosaic work, and spending time with my family and friends.

That's all for now,
Jill

Hello Jill and thanks for the follow.
I see you joined in 2016 and you stated you knew nothing about building a website.
It is awesome to see there are others in the same boat as myself.
I would like to know what your biggest struggle was when you started out and how did you get through it?
I am having a terrible time coming up with keywords for over 3 weeks now. It has slowed my progress dow and that bothers me.
Best Of Luck In All you Do

Hi Lee Ann, Am sorry to hear you are having a struggle with key words. I find I am of the old school, I keep a little book handy at all times and jot down random words pertaining to what I am blogging about. I can be anywhere when something comes into the thick skull but when I get home I go through these and see if any of them work for that post.
The things I found difficult were mainly terminology and still find it a bit confusing. Keep in mind I grew up in an era of not computers and when I got my first PC I had to ask my neighbor for help so often that when I was out one day, he came over and stuck a red button on my keyboard. (panic).
Am slowly learning and know if you follow the training, you will too.
All the very best,
Jill

We seem to have a lot in common. Could I borrow a grandchild or two? I don't have any of those, lol. I also have two amazing sons, but alas, probably won't have any grandchildren. I definitely have the crafting and gardening bug! My family rolls their eyes every time I start a new hobby. It's good to meet you!

JillAlexaVA Premium
Hi Laurie, Good to meet a kindred spirit. Sorry about the grandchildren but who knows???? Perhaps you will get a surprise one day.
My family probably feel the same about me and my fads but who cares. We must keep our creative juices running even when other things fail.
I left you a private message, hope it is of help to you.
All the best, Keep chatting.

Hi Linda, Thanks for contacting me. It will be great to bounce ideas on sewing etc. off each other. I interview a young girl who sews from home and sends things to Uganda. Amazing. She does heaps of charity work. Wish you all the best will follow you with interest and hope you will follow me too. Regards, Jill

Good evening to you Jill, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. The greatest joy in anyone's life is their grandchildren. If I knew they were going to be this much fun, I would have had them first!
My wife is learning Embroidery as she works at a shop that does this on machines 6 and 7 pieces at once. She wishes to learn the computer that creates the designs. Any suggestions?
I suggest you start in the Get Started Here section first [top left green box]. Here you will learn how to select your niche, build a niche website, and learn keyword research. Everything after that is learning how to market.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much enjoyment and success in your online journey.
Ken

JillAlexaVA Premium
Hi Ken, Thank you so much for the welcome and follow. Your wife will have endless fun with her embroidery machine and if she gets a digitizing machine and learns that can earn with that too.
I love my embroidery machine and also do a lot of quilting. Well not so much now involved in WA. I chose sewing as my Niche as that is what I know best.
Have so many interests and hobbies, it was quite difficult to cut it back to just one.
Am loving my journey with WA and am learning so much from all the members as well as the training.
Best wishes to you and your wife, Jill

Hi Jill,
We are both "grannys" and loving it I see. Lauren suggested I contact you as we are about the same age and same interests.

Like you I sew, draw, read & research alternative news. I am passionate in that I feel humans need access to all knowledge, this has been blocked from us for years.

I am following you,
Cheers Jae ☺

Hi Jae, How lovely to meet you. Thank you for taking this time to connect with me. Isn't life just wonderful with all the new things we can learn. I have found that the people in Wealthy Affiliate are so willing to help and advise. Am also so very fortunate to have my darling daughter always ready to help me and have a good laugh with me too. So great to be able to laugh with those you love.
That is one of the things I miss with my husband having Lewy Body Disease, he no longer can communicate well - no more belly laughs together.
Thank you for following me and it will be my joy to follow you too.
Have a very happy day. Best wishes, Jill

Hello Jill!

Very welcome to WA! I'm so pleased to meet you. Following you now!

I also have loads of hobbies and interests. For example I love to do cross stitching and machine embroidery. It's so fantastic to see how the image grows, one stitch after the other.

I wish you all the best and lots of fun on your online journey.

JillAlexaVA Premium
Hi Pernilla, Thank you so much for following me. It is fascinating to watch the picture grow as you embroider on the machine. My late and very precious Dad used to love sitting with me while I did my machine embroidery and comment on how clever it all was. It is like a bit of magic happening before your very eyes.
I also wish you all the best and enjoyment with WA. What an amazing opportunity to learn new things.
All the best and have an awesome day.
Kind regards, Jill

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! :)

JillAlexaVA Premium
Hi Kyle, Thank you so much for reaching out to me as I know how busy you must be. I have been mulling over quite a few ideas and think I have hit on one that should suit me. As I have had so many home based businesses over the years I am thinking along those lines.

If You think I am making a mistake, please do tell me. I will just get my thinking cap on again.

Kind regards, Jill

Kyle Premium
A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Hi Kyle, You gave me such good advice and I want to thank you for that. I have now, at last, written my "about me" post and published it. I concentrated on my passion for sewing as I have had a number of small business' connected with different aspects of sewing.
I am really enjoying learning and perhaps am getting a little less "Ditzy" on the computer.
Thank you again.

Hello Jill and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Now you must get stuck into the training and if you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 390+ blogs I have published within WA.

You are very welcome.
By the way - You may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

Onwards and Upwards.
