I'm John. I'm not sure if I'm giving too much info (TMI) when i write this but...here goes.....

I'm 51 and am relatively new to online stuff. I mean, I work with computers due to my work in customer service and owning my own tax preparation service in the 1990s, but am not what you would call 'computer savvy'. I just started my Facebook page!

One of my sisters gave me the idea of blogging for a living and she is in the middle of creating her website based on her favorite hobby. She is the reason why I'm trying this out.

Quite frankly, I love to talk about food. And, from what I understand, there are a lot of food blogs out there in 'cyberspace'. I would love to be one of the popular ones people in general would love to look at for a good pancake recipe or share my dining experience from a restaurant I visit alone or with friends.

In addition, since I have a finance background, I have an interest in learning and sharing info about finance and investments.

Between the 2 areas of finance and food, I hope to find a happy medium that allows some financial freedom.

Hi John,

Best of luck, and welcome to WA.

There is so much here to learn. Keep working at it, and always remember that it is not a race between the turtle and the rabbit that we are concerned with. What we want to do is finish the race.....cross the finish line, and start making income from our on line businesses.

I wish you much success.

John, sorry about the delay in responding. I am getting further and further behind in my following people. Oh well better late than never!

I just took a quick peak at your site and gave a comment.

You can talk about food all you want to me. I love it (far too much).

I attached an image to show what I did last week.

Work hard, have some fun and do keep in touch.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I love the picture. Is this something you have 'canned'?

Bottled. We have friends who have an olive farm. Once they have picked all the olives they need for the yearly Olive Oil pressing, I can go in and pick some for bottling. It takes two soaks in a salt brine, one in a caustic soda brine (takes out the bitterness) and then numerous rinses to make sure all the CS is removed. Then I bottle them in another salt brine and heat treat them. I have friends who hate olives but scoff mine down.

The lemon curd is from a Nigella Lawson lemon pavlova recipe. When I made it the curd was so good I decided to make some and bottle it so I could whip up deserts quickly.

Hi Wesley, No you didn't give too much information. Pretty much, just enough. Welcome to WA and I want to wish you well with everything you do. I love food too. Just look at me. Just kidding. Hey, take care. Do your training and ask questions if you need help. We're all here to help each other.

Hello Wesley and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You have probably found out by now that internet marketing will be a steep learning curve.
So can I suggest you browse some more of the blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, if you get stuck creating a site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

This is a great place for all of us who are 'techy challenged'. Despite my challenges, I have been able to follow and comprehend each lesson in the WA course. And trust me, if I can do it, so can you!

If you have any questions, just ask. I have always had helpful answers, even when I made a mistake (that no computer savvy person would make) on my website. This is a very supportive community.

All the best to you, Wesley.

Hello John, ♫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. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). 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

John, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything John.

Thank you everyone for your encouraging comments. I have updated my picture so you can see what I look like and I have part of my site published online if you want to look at it. I'm still going through Affiliate Bootcamp so I have much to learn. Let me know what you think of the site. I will be updating more of it as I learn more.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far John? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)
John1965 Premium
Thank you for the reminder. I thought it over and joined today as a Premium member. Thank you also for all your encouragement.

Congrats on going Premium John, I know you are absolutely going to love it. In the coming days, weeks and months ahead you are really going to see your business start taking shape. I can't wait to see it unfold.

You have everything you need here at WA now, take action, work hard, stay persistent and ask for help if you ever feel even remotely stuck. Lots of help here!
Kyle Premium
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! :)
Kyle Premium
Just thought I would check in and see how things are going with you! I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the community.
