9 Years at Wealthy Affiliates
9 Years of Changes
August Second marked my 9th year badge here at WA. I have been a pretty active member throughout. I'm constantly amazed when members rejoin after a hiatus and remember me from their previous membership.
When I joined WA, I was a rank novice. I had never even considered creating a website. Now, I have created many. Some of these were for clients, some for myself. Some were successful and some have faded into obscurity. Everything is a journey that yields results. Some results are good, some are a learning experience.
In the 9 years that I have been here, I have had several jobs, many of those can also be chalked up as a learning experience. At least they paid the bills for awhile. Now, I've embraced the Entrepreneur lifestyle.
It has been quite a journey and I have created lifelong friendships with some of the members here at WA. In fact, In 2017 I moved from NY to Tennessee to create a life with another member of WA. I have it on good authority that we are the first pair of WA members that have taken this step.
It was the best move I have ever made.
We have been friends for over 7 years now, for several of them we were just friends online. Then, when Hurricane Matthew hit South Carolina (Oct 5th 2016), I volunteered to help her restore her families vacation property. We have been together pretty much ever since that time.
WA is not a dating site! But, the relationships that you create here can impact your life immeasurably.
Why I Will Stay with WA
At this point, I have several sites that are active. Several of these sites provide me with a regular affiliate income. I'm focusing primarily on Woodworking Warrior as I have finally decided that I will persue my passion for woodworking both online and off.
I dabbled with a number of niches but none of them really got my blood boiling. All along I've been playing around with wood. With my new lifestyle and location, this seems like the perfect mix for me. I've even worked out a workshop now, in a few more weeks all of the tools will be sorted out and I can start producing product.
The Tools that WA provides give me a good solid online solution. I use the hosting for multiple sites. That alone is reason to stay with WA. Jaaxy is just a bonus and the site speed and privacy protection for our sites just seals the deal.
