I was so excited when I published my first Blog "Understanding The Wealthy Affiliate Keyword Tool” for all on WA to benefit. It took some time for me to understand how to fully maximize the Keyword Tool’s power, but once I did, I had to share what I had learned. When I went to publish my 2nd article, I was disheartened to find that, although i just paid the full monthly premium, I was limited to 1 Blog and no Training for the first 3 months.

Curious. Why are we limited to 1 Blog per day or no Training articles for 3 months? I have much experience to share from Online knowledge obtained since being on the Internet in 1995. I love to share my knowledge freely with those who care to know. WA being a platform for knowledge sharing, I assumed we all could share the knowledge with the WA immediately. I was just caught off guard when I went to post 5 blogs I wrote during my journey through the Affiliate Boot Camp. I was really happy and hoped to help the community with my experience. That being said, I by far not criticizing WA. I love the program and I’m greatly benefiting from it already.

Am I the only one that thinks 3 months is a long time from sharing the knowledge obtained during your most active time on Wealthy Affiliate? Everything one needs to succeed is experienced during the 1st 3 months. I have seen so many people along my life's path get discouraged when it comes to working for success in the first 3 months due to lack of immediate results.

If the intent is to ensure the Premium Members know what they're talking about first, I can understand this and only have a suggestion... rather than restrict training for 3 months could we add a Moderation of Comments as done on WordPress?

I will continue to share my knowledge as best I can through my blogs. Thank you to all those who've communicated directly with me and provided the all the support, recommendations and feedback I’ve received on my two sites (www.onlinemoneymaker.xyz & www.cannabisholism.com). Comments are welcomed and appreciated. Thank you all!

Prosperous wishes to all!!

I am guessing it might have to do with the fact that many people who are new here don't quite have the experience yet to be able to create training and, also, to protect the community from spammers.

Sometimes we do get new experienced people in here who just want to use WA to promote themselves, which is prohibited here and the three month limit prevents them from doing that.

Even after 3 months, excessive posting by someone becomes rather annoying and kind of dilutes your message as many people will not even bother to read them after awhile.

We have very experienced and knowledgeable members here who create perhaps 1 training per month and 1 blog per week.

I believe that imparting your knowledge in moderation will earn you more respect and your information will be better received.

Just my 2 cents, you can take it with however many grains of salt you wish.
Good luck to you here

Very well put and gladly accepted. Makes perfect sense. It would be nice for an explanation, just as you mentioned to me here, to be listed with the restriction notification. After reading your commentary, the reason is clear well understood. There are many HIGHLY talented people in this Network and if not for them... I would not be where I'm at with my sites. Even with my experience with making money online, I have never been able to start a new operation so quickly! I mean... wow... excellent training videos. I have learned so much and my mind is actually blown away at the amount of information that I DO NOT know. I'm very thankful for this program and cannot wait to have my own network of Wealthy Affiliates recruited.

Also, please keep in mind that everything you blog about or the training you create here at WA is indexed in the search engines and, should you also have a personal website about making money online, you would not be able to include what you have written here on your own site or visa versa as that would be duplicate content.

Being that you are fairly new here, I'm not sure if you have seen this yet but it could be a help to you and no, I am not trying to suggest that you plan to be a spammer, it just happens to be the page title :)

Hi Kingshopper......with the knowledge you have about all of this that the rest of us don't, I can understand your "faunching at the bit" feelings. Just do what you can within the rules and when the time comes, be the source for everyone you know you can be. In the meantime, I'm going to pay attention to how you help others.....I know I will learn much.

I appreciate your advice and I WILL take it. I will just continue to document my interactions with the system... blog as I'm allowed and be a low-key resource between now an then. Thanks to absolutely everyone commenting this story. I appreciate each and every opinion both for and against!

Hi Kingshopper,

I feel the same frustration, however you can post everything in your blog - 1 blog per day. That's what I'm doing, I've posted a twitter marketing strategy in my blog. Hope that helps!

Hmmm... At least I wasn't alone in my thinking.Yes... telling me what you do is helpful. I dinged myself with this post. I did not realize that commenting on the dashboard for help to the community would count as my 1 Blog for the day... what a major bummer.

KrazyKat is right you can submit a blog once a day but you cannot submit and training blogs for your first three months.

Thank you. I see and agree with krazykat that I can ramble in a blog at least once a day. I'm more concerned about training. I have 20 years expertise with online business & eCommerce. It would simply be nice to share the knowledge as it pertains to WA & AM. But thank you for your comment as well!

From what I've seen already you are doling out mad help left and right. Take it easy brother....I definitely want a seat on your rocket ship. I don't know any other platforms that you can do this type of thing at all.

You certainly are a great wealth of knowledge. Keep doing what your doing ....I know I ALWAys am asking questions : )

Ps, the only reason I said take it easy is because you have a ton of experience but, you are new to THIs community. You already had slight mis-info even though the reality didn't bug you any less...it's in place for a reason like krazykat said : )

Anyhoo, you rock Kind King Hopper ; )

Thank you Frye. I didn't really have misinformation. As soon as I went to post another blog... it didn't mention a 1 blog per day restriction... It simply said I was restricted for 3 months even when blogging. I think a simple modification in the body of the message declaring there's a 3 month minimum on Training, but you can post 1 blog per day. Due to the message... I was led to believe I was just stifled for 3 months. Oh well... Moving on. I spoke my peace, so no I bury the hatchet and move on. Thx for the nice words! It's greatly appreciated. I'm curious... how did you know I'm dishing "mad help left and right"? Just wondering if there was some sort of stat to which you were referring.

I will take your advice and "take it easy". I am clearly new to the community although I'm definitely not new to making money on online from home. It's been 2 weeks for me on this awesome platform and my sites are up & running with sales on my AM site and CAN'T WAIT to have recruit WAs to get to Vegas this year!!

I saw you on a few different days dishing out help in live chat and even offering help in PM while you were away : ) I hope I can meet you in person in Vegas! I sit in on chat when I'm doing other tasks just in case there are tidbits of knowledge I'm missing. Even when I'm not talking!

Ha! ya.. sometimes I get carried away and try to help too many people at once and get my messages scrambled... lol. I really love everyone here. If you don't eventually succeed on WA, it can only be because of lack of desire. Motivation moves people to learn more often than not.

I understand...I know next to nothing and was still trying to help people.
And, I am in total agreement with you!

LOL. You're hilarious. Helping people, but claiming you know nothing... haha. Thanks for understanding my point of view! Much appreciated.

This is your second blog. Without looking for something to reference, I am quite sure you are limited to one blog per day for the first 3 months. An official training needs to wait until after 3 months. I see nothing wrong with this.
If you post any more than one blog a day, it's too much anyways. People will start overlooking them. Our mailboxes are already full.
That's just my two cents :-)
Cheers!

I'm more concerned with Training than I am a blog. It just happens to be a frustrating poke. I've been doing business online since eBay was born in 1995. I not agree that people will start overlooking them. People selectively read what pertains to them, then what extra that can be done in spare time.. I'm sure that's already the case. No one can possibly read every blog posted. I'm more concerned with Training than I am Blogging.

There can never be too much training. There is much to be desired for highly technical things encountered on WA... for the technically advanced users ready to dive in. I've been on here 2 weeks. I have 2 published sites 1 where I promote WA and AM and a totally separate domain & business capitalizing on my niche. Perhaps I'm expecting more than I should. I'll move on and focus on why WA trained us to do... to monetize a website and recruit. In 3 months, I'll still be helping others down the road to Wealth and Prosperity on WA, but I believe much of what's written 3 months in the past will likely be old news and no longer be applicable.

Thank you for your comment and bring it to my attention that I can leave a Blog everyday. Not that I want to ramble everyday, but it is nice to know that I can should I want to.

I hear you. Many of us newer members aren't as knowledgeable as you are. I will certainly remember you when I need help :-)

Yes, you are probably right that readers will pay more attention to a training than to a blog. Having said that, I suggest that you start blogging your knowledge now while it's fresh and build the trust and respect of your followers until the time comes that you are allowed to do trainings.

I always enjoy a good rant too. Lol.

All the best!

Ha... Now that's funny!! Good idea documenting the work in blog format. The restriction is just a little troubling because I believe I can help many WA Marketers more-so with a Training Module than through tons of individual Private Messaging and an overlooked Blog (PMing is what I've been doing since I became a member... that's why it's troubling... I have to resend the same info to multiple people experiencing that same problem, so a Training Module would be warranted at that point! Thx for your wonderful input.

Ha... Agreed... A good rant is necessary for complete and utter ventilation! lol

I don't see what's the big deal about just writing blogs with the information you wish to share.

Your followers definitely don't overlook your blog. :) Also, sometime I post my blog in live chat so people will be more aware of it.
