Every Step Counts

Last Update: May 30, 2018

It is said in Ancient wisdom that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step...

Far from being just another feel good cliche', I know for a fact that however far or near you intend to go, there is no way of avoiding step one which is getting up and actually going somewhere.

This is Real

Wealthy Affiliate is a platform so unlike anything else I have ever come across in terms of training and expression for such a wide variety of personalities, nationalities, professional and artistic individuals with such a wealth of experience. It would seriously take a lifetime come even near to exhausting all the knowledge there is to gain.

I can see the Milestones

My progress has not been smooth sailing but has definitely been enriching. There have been tasks that have challenged me to reach out openly whereas my usual attitude would be to give up and probably moan about what I have failed to, this WA platform has changed that. I can say that I have gained confidence to converse freely with anyone.

Choices made

After a lot of thought and struggle, I finally narrowed down my niche to an area of significant personal interest but I can easily see myself finding another one or two in the future. Before WA , I could imagine being able to contribute any content of worth because in my mind it was the premise of experts only.

Being very honest

My posts could do with some improvement in terms of time engagement but I can safely say that the sense of distress when trying to create content is now a thing of the past. Another cool thing I appreciate is all the hands on experience I have gained in navigating a side of the internet I didn't really appreciate before.

Forward looking

In the coming three to six months, I would like to get to a point where I would be earning some cash inflows as a direct benefit of being here.

If nothing else, WA has changed my life for the better. My view of the world is wider and my understanding is deeper. There has been one dull moment for me at all.

That's one of my favorite sayings. Funny, even if it is a thousand miles, each step makes you closer, so don't give up ever!

I know right? It's so common a phrase that I guess when you think about it a little too much the simplicity of the concept makes you feel that the secret for success has to be more complicated than that. ...human nature seeks the knots. ..twists and drama. ..simplicity moves us along

Congratulations on narrowing down your niche. For me, that was the hardest part of my affiliate journey so far!

It's spooky that you would use that proverb.

I was learning how to say it in Mandarin earlier this evening.

Just for fun, here it is: 不积跬步无以至千里

Translated it means: "Without starting with a small step, you cannot achieve a thousand miles".

Pretty cool though. I will have you know that I went through that same process of struggle as well and it's amazing how wide you suddenly find a niche can be. ...I did not know that before

It's a balancing act too - choosing a niche that's narrow enough to not have too much competition whilst being broad enough to give you lots of opportunities to write.

I'm struggling a little with my niche site because it's possibly a little too narrow so I'm having to brainstorm post topics.

As matter of interest, what niche did you settle for?

Art materials.

I'm wishing I targeted a more prestigious niche (i.e. higher ticket items) but it's a passion project so it's easier for me to write content for it. :)

Nice! Perhaps your next project could be on the higher ticket items : )

That's crossed my mind as well and the Kyle did Affiliate links seems to indicate that the returnsite from WA are pretty decent.
