Thank you for great Comments, WA family!

Last Update: March 23, 2018

This month I have been requesting a lot of comments as well as giving comments to others. I feel very uncomfortable asking comments as I don’t feel I am a good writer. In fact, English is not my first language, and I have limited vocabularies and ways of expressions. However, the comments people make on my articles are very encouraging. It is one of the best things about Wealthy Affiliate.

I know, eventually, my website will get more exposure and strangers start looking at my articles and may make some negative comments. But with those wonderful people’s encouraging and warm words of comments, I gain confidence in my articles, and I will be able to deal them.

Some people give me honest feedback or challenge me, and I really appreciate that too. It is not an easy thing to actually critique someone’s works. I have done a few times, and I tried to do my best to point out kindly. They do appreciate my points, though, and I wish them the best. Wealthy Affiliate is a place to grow, not to keep us in the safety space (which in time could be!)

Thank you, everyone! And I will continuously leave the comments and feedback. It does help the traffic (and creates momentum) but also supports me emotionally. For those who have not made any comments requests or given comments, I would strongly encourage you to do it. It is gratifying.

Have a great weekend!

Kyoko

Your English seems pretty good to me and I would not instantly know it is not your first language. I use site comments a lot and more so as it is part of the SWAG challenge.
I must admit I don’t use the feedback platform as much but I think I should try and get constructive criticism to help improve my site rather than just comments that are appropriate to put out on my site.
I wish you every success
With Grace and Gratitude

Karen, thank you for the kind words.I sometimes go to feedback to give them feedback. It is a great place to learn from honest opinions. I haven't done much of feedback lately as making comments is part of the assignments and other assignments pretty much keep me busy.
Wish you the great success too!

Well said Kyoko and don't worry, English is also not my first language and I too use grammarly. It's a great help.

Grammarly is a great help. I mix up with a lot of prepositions like "to" or "for" and miss (or add unnecessarily) articles like "the". Those are not in my native language! :D

Reading this blog, it seems like you have excellent command of the English language. Some of your tenses may be a little off, but it will be hardly noticeable to most.

Avoid perfectionism! It is hard to trust people that don't make mistakes. As long as you are getting your message across, you are doing well.

Personally, I don't trust anybody who claims to submit flawless work. The owner, Kyle, often makes mistakes that I see, but that is going to happen when you are busy!

Thank you Ernest!

Yes, I do a lot of mistakes when I get busy and try to post quickly too. I use grammarly, though it doesn't pick out everything.

I am learning to be ok with some flaws in my English. And thank you for the complement. I really appreciate it and it means the world to me!!
