About KBrite1
Joined November 2017
I am a geriatric (68), digital diva and maven, but I am still 35 years old in my mind and spirit. I have been in the design and publishing industry for almost 40 years. I am a musician; studied classical piano for over 15 years and played in bands and orchestras over the years. Being a musician, art and design was also in my blood.

While working for an outdoor advertising agency in the early 80s I had the opportunity to go back to college with tuition paid by the company. I enrolled in the design and analysis and the programming curriculum. I found my dream and place. I took to it like a duck to water, you might say. It added a whole new aspect to my career. Coding and programming came so naturally. Now remember that this was in the days before GUI and all we had was the black/green screen and pure code and you never knew if you had it right until you compiled your code. It was intense, and I loved it. I finished my degree in programming in 1988.

This was just at the right time for the dawning of the new personal computer age, the beginning of the internet, and the beloved Macintosh. It was perfect timing. I jumped right into the middle and never looked back. I had it all. I understood the computer hardware, software and then being an artist and with the purchase of a new Macintosh to go with my PC, I had it all.

I've been in the middle of all this since that time. I've continued to study and learn the graphic design and web design/development business. I consider myself very fortunate that I've been able to make a living doing what I love.

What I must tell you is to never be satisfied with where you are in your craft. You must continuously study, research and learn or you will become outdated in a very short period of time. That's why I have never stopped my education.

My new endeavor is Internet Marketing. This is a new field for me to use my talents and craft and I am excitedly pursuing that now as well.

Thank you Kathy for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 4 years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

When you have the time, I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link. Again, when you have the time.

Hi, Kbrite1:
Thanks for following. I'm following you now. Your bio is interesting because I also a musician, though I didn't study as much as you, at least not formally. I play jazz piano and sometimes I can even sound almost like a pro!

And the other thing that caught my eyes was the programming. I studied that, too. I did COBAL, FORTRAN, RPG, ASSEMBLER, etc. Not sure if I can remember any of it now, but at the time I particularly liked Assembler because it got as close as you can into the guts of the machine.

Good luck.

Yes, programming in our day was a real art. Now there are so many apps to work with that it's just not as pure. Granted it's a lot easier today. :), but it's not an art anymore. I'm sure you've found that our education from the dark ages has given us an edge when faced with a problem to solve. Using the logic I learned in the early days has been so very valuable even now.

Thanks for your follow. I have somewhat an unorthodox path in my career. Was trained in Zoology but ended up working in admin. About 10 years ago discovered that I had a knack for end-user systems administration, namely managing websites from conception to operations. Did that for about 10 years before ill health took me. Now, I am on the mend and very free. Affiliate marketing seems a logical next step. All the best to the both of us.

Hi! Claudia,
Thank you for introducing Trello, but would you please tel me where I can place Trello for me to follow and use?

Appreciate your instruction to come.

Hi James,
I hope I understand your question correctly. You want to know how to access Trello, and on what platforms you can use it?

Well, you can start by going to my training here in WA - which includes a link to the Trello - and one of the Trello boards I created for everyone here. Then, simply follow the instructions to sign up - also, you can use Trello, once you created an account - via your Android or iPhone. For that, you have to download the app in the Google Play store, or the iPhone equivalent, and then sign back into your account with the app.

How to get started with Trello - such as setting up the boards, cards, and lists - I have training video on that as well. Here is the link to that one: - hope this helps. If you have any more questions, leave a comment here, or PM me. Blessings!

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! :)
