About Karin13
Joined June 2018
I have been writing a website with a blog for about 2 years now. It is about my struggle with type 2 diabetes. I want to turn this into a business that helps people understand the struggle on a personal level rather than just facts and figures.
I am the grandparent of several beautiful grandchildren one of whom lives with my spouse and Me. I work as a reporter for a small town newspaper and manage the website there.

I had to think about this reply.
btw thanks for the follow and back at you
well...
i can relate with your struggle with
coping with a medical condition.
i had the same idea about a blog with coping/recovering after a stroke.
Since anything related to health is a mega niche/sub niche.
You can expect great success with this idea
i wish you much success.

Hello Karin. Thank you for following back. Thanks for the compliments.
I previously worked with endocrinoly as RN. Getting people awareness with DM type 2 is a very good social service. So it could be detected as early as possible - before IT leads to various complications. Salute to you and keep Up the good Work. God bless.

Best Regards

Hi Karin
Thank you for the follow and I am delighted to join your network and thanks for the like on Stefan's post.
I felt that this scammer and no doubt many others, try to appeal to a base human trait of ' join me in deceit and make money together', but give me some of yours first, then well....sucker!!
I feel they don't realise how many of us stand tall and integrity is our banner.

I totally agree with your sentiments. It is much easier to be straight and honest with what we do - that way we do not have to continually look over our shoulder to see who is after us because inevitably these scammers get caught. Honesty and Integrity are the basis for normal life and even more important if you are going into business.
great input

My wife is battling with diabetes. She also struggles with neuropathy. She is in pain quite often. She has been able to control her sugar levels cause of the way she is eating now compared to the way we were eating last year. I have grandchildren of my own. That's my wife' main motivation. Is to be around for them and to watch them grow into great people, no matter what there interests are. I'm a better blog reader than I am a blog writer. I have no clue in how to write a blog or even what to write about. Maybe you could give me a few pointers. Anyway it is nice to meet you.

I can feel your wife's pain. The neuropathy is no walk in the park....

I don't have a formula for writing, except that I write from my heart and I do my very best to keep on topic. That can sometimes be a challenge, but it is important to do because it keeps your reader focused, as well.

Maybe I'll do a training on blog writing at some point! :)

Keep in contact and my best to you!

Thank you for the follow Karin and Welcome to WA!!

Sounds like you have a really good idea there!! Just in case you wanted any suggestions: I recommend the possibly selling the Contour Next One Blood Glucose Kit from the Amazon site.

I was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and this kit was one of the most inexpensive, but has been working so well for me. Plus, reordering the testing strips doesn't completely break the bank either like others.

Thank you for covering this topic! I will follow back :)

Thanks for the great suggestion!! Sorry you had to find out about the kit the way you did, though.

Thanks for the return follow!

Hello Karin, nice to meet you and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate (WA). Thank you for the follow and all the best in achieving your goals at WA. I also am a diabetic type 2 and it really is a struggle. For me it is the dieting where I fall down. Exercising and keeping my weight is not a problem. I am definitely a work in progress.

Hello Karin and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your present online experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring back to the training, but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

I’ve got a few ideas.
1. Continue with the one I have already started on which is about diabetes and health/exercise.

2. Grandparents raising grandchildren.

3. The absolutely awesome benefits of small town living.

What do you think? I had purchased domain names for two of them a couple of years Ago..

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! :)
