About KatieMac
Joined January 2014
I am now heading into my fourth year with Wealthy Affiliate and I cannot believe how far I am come, despite being here for a longish period I continue to learn and refine the process.

I started out without any real amount of technical knowledge and wondered if I could master all that was set before me, with the ever evolving internet and technology I doubt I will ever master all that it entails however I learn all I need to and continue to add to my skills and knowledge

There is often the question do you earn any money from this and the answer is Yes it does work and the only limits you can impose is those you set yourself,Over these years sadly I see people give up too soon, we need to remember if we were starting out a business in a conventional sense on average ti takes a year to get established, financially you can even operate at a loss or break even, not to mention how many hours we end up working and the money we need to invest.

It is not an overnight money making machine either however with dedication and constant work you will get there, and the remarkable thing about all of it is that this can be done by just about anyone, This has been the best education program I have been on for a long time and I am grateful to the founders of WA Kyle and Carson, not forgetting those great community members who offer support, guidance and share their skills to help us achieve our goals

Hi Jacqueline thank you for stopping by , I have added you on G+ and had a look at your website, lots of great information however can I make a few suggestions, firstly I could not see anywhere to leave you a comment, then I have noticed that you have your disclosures in between your content, these would be better as individual pages and perhaps adding them to your side bar would recommend you do the same for your about me page, I think you would benefit from having a different theme to.. hope you do not mind me saying, I also need to change by profile bio as I am now entering my 4th year with wealthy affiliate. Wish you every success

Hi Katie, I really appreciate your suggestions, I will follow your pieces of advice, I like to write about, health, plants, food, etc.. You are telling me it would be preferable to have a completely different theme, I thought that my blogs have to be related to the theme of my website.
I am so glad you are helping me.
Thank you.
Jacqueline.

You have a lot of nice images and details on the benefits of specific oils etc, and I think with each oil you could build out a post for each, have the feature images for each one and have read more to keep it nice and tidy, privacy, about me and affiliate disclosure can be on the side or in the footer and the menu could be a drop down so your not top heavy on the page

I don't how to tell you how much I appreciate your help, you are so great! I am wondering how I will manage to write a blog, with 1200 words for only one product? is it that possible?
I am lucky, my husband is looking to change the theme of my website as you have suggested.
Well, I have to accomplish my tasks, right now.
Thank you again.
Jacqueline.

You can always compare two products and do around 500 words for each of them, as you go you will find that your word count will start expanding naturally, I use a theme called iconic one which is a nice clean layout and you can play around with it .. Make sure any unwanted themes are deleted so not to bog down your site, if you are not sure how to do this have a look at the training here

Hello Katie, you are the best, I will try the "iconic"
I haven't decided yet on the change of the theme, they are so many to choose from.
I wish you happy evening.
Jacqueline.
Thank you.

Hello Katie, you are right on that, choosing a theme is time-consuming, anyway, I had the plan to finish my blog today, but I had a call from my best friend from France and had such sad news she announced me.I am still on the chock.
Have a nice weekend, Katie.

I just simply love that place here and I am sure, I can learn A LOT more, as I did already to succeed my new online marketing business.

Thank you guys, for all the help I got so far, to improve my new Website and that's the result so far ;-)

I hope, I will find soon some time, to check out more about your Profile and business success.

I am very open to any comments, advice or critics, please leave a comment here and on my Website.

You are also, very welcome to add me on my Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SteadicamProduction

I did take a look at your video post and try to leave a comment which I do not think worked.. Is your site to do with Buddhism and meditation there was a lot of stuff unrelated like affiliate parts.. also think that the colour of your menu (blue with red writing makes it hard on the eyes) perhaps you could consider just black. hope you do not feel offended by my remarks it could be me just getting muddled, but I do feel meditation is a great way to start and end the day

It was nice to meet you to Lee I am on my 4th year and to be honest never thought I could pull it off, but I did make a decision when I started this that quitting was not an option, I cannot see me leaving this great community anytime soon, went yearly so here for a bit.. I am on the super affiliate road with Kyle and loving it.. got lots to do each day and its just what I need, makes it easier just to focus when the weather is freezing and snow on the ground lol

Hi KatieMac,
Thank you for posting the above message on your one year with WA. I really needed to see and read your words. I am a newbie, and what you have written is very encouraging, and validates the daily work I put in and knowledge I am applying from what I'm learning at WA.

Thanks,
Rick C.

Hi Rick thanks for stopping by I have now been with WA for 3 years and it has been the best years in terms of learning, and growing it has given me more opportunities and a way to earn a living that does not involve the daily commute stress I so enjoy every aspect of this even though it did take me longer to grasp it. stick with it and give yourself time

Hi, KatieMac,

I just saw your reply in the "getting started video training comment" within "the getting started training lessons."

I really like your bio! If you can do it, I can do it too. I'm clueless when it comes to this. Now I have no excuse, lol!

Somehow, knowledge is power and the lack there of is a detriment to your progress here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I'm now going to be following you!

I look forward to hearing back from you. To me your inspirational and inspiring.

Becky :)

Somebody here was saying that their kids appear (or think they do) to know as much if not more than their parents.
It is not much different here in South Australia.

One of the better writers your country ever produced,( Mark Twain ) once commented, tongue in cheek.

..."When I was twenty I was amazed at some of the strange observations my father would make....."Interestingly I found it even more remarkable how much the old guy had improved by the time I reached thirty".
Or words to that affect.
Just a bit of fun...keep up the good work Katie.

Hi Katie, its good to read your comments. I am where you were three short years ago. Just getting started.
With eyes like fried eggs as I survey all of the content on this WA site, it looks a little daunting
....but as you say, that's roughly how you felt at the beginning of your journey.
All the best for your persistence. It looks like it has paid off in your experience.
Please drop me a line sometime Katie. I would appreciate some more detailed input from you and others who have been subscribing to WA for a few years.
best wishes........Paul.

Hi Katie:

Just dropping in to see how you are doing. I was thrilled to see that you were able to stay awake for Jay's webinar. No doubt you are now sound asleep. I hope these notes help you out, because sometimes when I am sleepy it is hard for me to learn new things, and I am guessing that maybe the way for many of us: Steph

Katie, I read your post on domain name. I am wanting to reuse a created webpage that was my starting point with WA. I since created using the same name an owned page. I thought I would go back now and sgtrip out some of the unrelated content on my primary website and pages and create a whole new website with those pages.
Should I just delete the first webpage totally. and create a fully new one?
First one is AgeAdjuster.siterubix.com. new one would be on siterubix but something like Stop the Clock.
Thank You for your help.

KatieMac Premium
Rather than delete the whole thing I would be inclined to revamp it and keep it especially if you are getting traffic to it see this about changing domain names before you decide.
