About Laparra1
Joined January 2017
Hi, I am Dutch and have lived in the south of Spain for many years.
I am creative, love animals and nature and, at the age of 67, as I have time on my hands, I thought it a good thing to start something new in my life.
I will do my best and anticipate being successful in Wealthy Affiliate.
I have put a new photo of myself.
This cat comes from the US, I did a 3 weeks trip in 2016 and found it in Leavenworth/Washington
With best wishes for all of you. Regards Taetske

ps. I have just learned it is a good thing to have the websites mentioned on the profile so that is why I am adding them.

Love your last post on motherearthstreasures.com on the scared plant and its history. Sites looking very good I would suggest moving the affiliate disclosure down to the bottom it really doesn't need to take up prime Realestate on your site, that and the privacy policy should be down at the bottom of your site in the footer or sidebar. Great job, cheers Mike.

Taetske, I was just reading the comments on Loes' Portugal bush fire post. I am going to comment on your comment so came here to read about you.

Now with your websites you can put the links right here on this page. Just go to the bottom right and do this under the 'Follow me on' button. That way your links are here and people can just click on the link and visit your sites.

You can add your social media links too.

Now I will keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Good morning Helen,

When I heard that one has to put one's websites I added them to my profile only finding out that one has it below one's posts, I did not take it away from my profile as a lot of people do not know about the other place.
I am not into any social media, I do not know if I will ever make it as I am more than busy with the rest, but if I make that step it will probably be Google+
I tried to find your websites but only saw the training. As I am not a computer/internet person at all, I would not be surprised if I do something wrong.

Have a good week, Taetske

Taetske, I didn't check but are you following me. Peoples sites don't show up there until you follow them. I gave you the link elsewhere just in case you still can't find it.

Information on adding the links there is in the training so most people should know about it!

I never did find the flag on the free video. But if it's of interest to you these type of site that you think are of interest to the community you can post them. it's just not recommended that you post your Ural. just poped into your site, you told me about a new recipe that you posted. Sacred Sauerkraut don't know if that was the one but I love it.

Always a better way

Hello Linda,

Sorry, I do not know what you mean with the free flag. I had a banner on each website next to the posts which were a black and white photo telling the people about the free video. They could sign up for free, I just passed on that information.
On the page where I have my healthy recipes I have added the one on Sauerkraut.

Hasta pronto, Taetske

p.s. I just now saw you had left a comment on the Sauerkraut, of course, I will leave an answer. I have just received the cooking book, very special recipes, I am now an Affiliate to the Secret Science, I have been receiving their newsletter for a long time.

Have a nice day, Taetske

Hello Teatske,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network. Leuk om weer een medelander hier te ontmoeten:) Fries?

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Good evening Loes,

Thank you for your fast reply.
Yes, my name is Fries. I was the first grandchild of my Mother's parents. My grandfather and his grandmother had the same name, a, so called, family name. As I was born in Australia I got this name of course. At the age of 3, my parents took me back to Europe and I spent my youth in Holland. At the age of 15, I left to learn languages in other countries and never lived in Holland anymore. I have lived the biggest part of my life in warm climates and to tell you the truth I would not be happy otherwise. When needed I for sure will visit your treasure trove, I am quite hopeless with all the technical stuff but love the making of websites, let's call it the creative side of it all.

Regards, Taetske

Hello Taetske!
Thank you once again for your valuable tip in your 2nd Post.
Thought I have to come and get to know you a bit better. I'm very pleased to meet you.

You look absolutely awesome, many, many, many years younger than you say you are. You have chosen the perfect niche (healthyantiagingalternatives.com). I will definitively have a closer look at your website.

Wish you all the best, success and happiness!

Thank you for the follow back Taetske. I am of Dutch heritage myself. My name is Van Doren. It's like Smith in the US. Lots of us. Glad to see you are in Espana with good weather. I think when my relatives came to the US from Holland and experienced the terrible weather they said to themselves "Oh, this is just like home. Let's stay here." lol Bob

Hello Taetske, I have had a problem with missing photos on my site pages and posts. Vielen angst. Almost resolved after 12 hours of work and buying BackWPup - pro. Yesterday and today I have had over 100 e-mails and I answer at least 30% of them. Anyway, I feel a connection with you. Not sure why or how just yet. I will go to your profile and click on your posts and read them. Then I will send you a personal message schatze. Besos.

Good morning Bob,

When I put my first question, perhaps you like to read it, I had a similar problem as I could not see some banners/links and on WA the photos from the profiles had disappeared. It turned out it was a so-called ad blocker. I went to my little shop in town where some clever computer boys solved the issue.

Have a nice weekend, Taetske

You know Linda, I sometimes feel a bit out of place with all these young people doing all these " modern " things. To think I consider myself belonging to the handwritten letter generation.

Honored to follow and humbled to be followed herein @ WA Taetske. .
Being fairly new my only advice is to 'use the tools' because I've found this place far&away; the best place to crawl, walk, and run.
My goal is to make people better in health via a Functional Wellness approach and look forward to 'reaching out' to many more here.
I wish you and yours much success in all of your business venture(s) and new life moments.
Be Well, Be Safe, & Be YOU! I remain ...

Hi Gautam, thanks for the message. Oh well, Holland=small country but tall stories. What is true is that there is a regular dike check as the moles do make holes and that could be dangerous in the long run if left unchecked.A big part of Holland is below sea-level so one has to be careful.

Hi Taetske, Thank you so much for following back. I reckon this is the best place where we can learn and increase your exposure on IM. The training and tutorials are top notches and I believe the WA community is the place you want to be with on your journey to build a passive income. [Kelsey]

Thank you for offering me help Steve. When I have a problem mainly with the technical side of the whole I normally ask Mike Lamb who is my" sponsor" so to speak.
I left Holland at the age of 15 1/2 so Holland is a foreign country to me.I do not know if I will remain forever in Spain. In case Europe gets "funny" politically speaking I might consider NZ or Australia.

Hi Dennis,

Oh dear me, me and my English or should I say English and me.

Sorry Mike I was so slow with this. When I started with WA I was overwehlmed, and still am, with all the tecnical stuff. Then there were all the Follows, I didnot know what to do with that and wanted to concentrate on the first 10 lessons. Mike told me it would be a good thing to follow back and I listened to his advice.Have a nice weekend.

Hello Gaylene, thank you for your message.
The situation in the US has caused the enquiries for emigrating to NZ to increase by 600%. We have been thinking about this, incase Europe gets impossible, well, you never know. I at least have an Australian passport so that helps.
Wishing you also all the best.

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! :)

Thank you Mike for your message. Today will do a new lesson, I am going slowly but steady, typical Taurus. No real questions up till now. When I feel I understand the lesson I continue. Niche finding will not be a problem, it will probably be more, call them tecnical things, that will drive me crazy, we will see.

Well, here is the first tecnical problem.
I built a website but it is a simple one and I wanted to modify it.
I tried to download a personal photo but got errors (HTTP error).
Can I use personal photos on my WA webpage and if not where do I click to get background pictures ?
Reply
MikeLambert Premium
Hi Taetske, yes you can use personal pictures downloaded from your personal computer, just make sure they have jpeg or png by the photo to make sure it is formatted properly for wordpress. Hope that makes sense, if it doesn't let me know and I will dig up some training that you can look at to help you download pics, talk soon Mike.

Good morning Mike, here it is midday, as I suppose you live somewhere in the US you will be still sleeping. Thank you for your message yesterday, I have Michael who is helping me with the photo as background for my first website.You see I have it all in my head but need help to put it on a computer. Anyhow we are slowly advancing. I will have to write different stories which then include the links, some that I want to included have affiliate prog., saw that on Google, so that is good. The lesson yesterday where you go into your backoffice of your site got me somehow confused, I think with clicking and practicing it will become familiar. Same as when I started with a computer, it took me awhile to master the mouse so to speak. I only have 3 days left to be able to talk to you, as all this is already slightly overwelhming I donot think to go Premium yet as I first have to master the basics. I have 49 followers, thats nice but only the people who write a small message I will answer as now I have to concentrate on the lessons.

I am glad you are making some progress Taetske. When I started I had zero experience with a computer and very little knowledge of the internet, it just takes time and lot of perseverance but it will pay off. I actually live in Canada on the west coast, Vancouver Island, so yes there is a time difference that's for sure.
Take your time and if you need anything just ask, have a great day Mike.

Good morning Mike, a beuatiful sunny winter Sunday has started. It is 09.00 and a bit cold, at night only 5 degrees C to go up to 16.
As there is no wind we will be sitting in the patio at 13.30, get some sunshine for the vit D and in the mean time eat our eco. oranges, I have some 100 trees.
Yesterday we improved our learning system.
I had the lesson going on my small computer and next to me was Michael with the big computer doing the steps in real. Doing it and not only listening to the indications improves understanding a lot.
Michael said he now thinks about signing up also. He has been a
Environmental ingeneer in the US so his websites would go in that direction.
Today we will do lesson 7.
( I have good friends in Canada, they are Danish, I met Rolf in 1968 in the French language school near Paris, we always kept contact. They will be visiting the south of Portugal this March so we will have a 1 week holiday there to see them )

Hi Taetske, sounds like you have a good system figured out with Michael and a great day planned. If Michael does sign up and wants to work alongside you with my help he can sign up through my website
http://avoidonlinemarketingscams.com/ there is a WA logo on the right hand side menu which will link Michael to me if he wishes.
My wife has quite a bit of family in Holland, many have come to visit us here.
Well off to do a hike! we are hiking a route today that will take us about 4 hours alongside an inlet on the ocean near our house, we are getting ready for a 27km hike along the sunshine coast trail which we can jump onto less than a 15 minute drive from our house, I think it is the longest trail in British Columbia. Our plan is to do the whole thing next year which will take us roughly 10 days. Have a great day Taetske.

Hi Mike, that sounds great your trip in nature, I love everything related to nature myself. Yesterday lesson 7 with the 2 computers on was good, should have done that from the beginning. Today number 8. Ofcourse if Michael signs up it will be under you.

Hello and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I look forward to working together to achieve success! The Wealthy Affiliate program is phenomenal with extraordinary material to learn and apply as well as an outstanding community with support that you won’t find anywhere else.

I am committed to helping you succeed as well. Feel free to private message me and I will help you with whatever I can.

Hi Taetske, Mike here from http://avoidonlinemarketingscams.com,

I am so happy you made the decision to take advantage of this opportunity. If you are determined and can stick with your training here at WA it can open the door to an exciting and rewarding future as it has for me. This is where your online business is going to be realized. Here's the course that started me down the road to an unbelievable lifestyle and one that is now within your reach. From this point on you will have not only my support in person but the ability to ask any questions of the community here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Without wasting too much time you can now access the Online Entrepreneur level 1 online course found in the main menu by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button.

Here's the link to lesson 1: This is the course that I started with and lead me to my first sale online!

If you are willing to put in an honest effort and take the bull by the horns I will personally help you through the course or with any questions or concerns you may have in your quest to make your online business a reality.

I can be reached through my personal profile at any time when you have any questions...trust me, you will!

Oh! Lesson 3 "Finding A Niche" for many is the most challenging to get through without pulling out your hair and the occasional temper tantrum so I have created some extra material that I feel will be of huge benefit to you while working through this lesson, let me know when you are there and I will give you if you upon request.

Don't forget to create your personal profile by adding an image and a few words about yourself! You will find many WA members come offering their help and asking you to follow them which is a great resource for you to have access too, many members here have a wealth of knowledge that you can tap into.

Just a quick heads up! You can just do the course and that's it or you can take advantage of a discount on a premium membership here at WA. There is absolutely no pressure to change your status, but if you decide to become a Premium member and unlock absolutely everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer and do so before your 7 day course is over you will qualify for a 50% discount on the first month of your membership.

I look forward to getting to know you and being able to help out when you have questions.

Cheers, Mike

Thank you for your prompt answer Mike. It is only since end 2013 that I have a computer and I have limited myself to photos and emails and also folllowing some Master classes or Summits on subectsI am intrested in. Before Christmas I came upon Mark Ling and followed some things online but it went very fast and I would be lost half way, still, I came out with understanding the concept but not really how to do it. I compared ML to WA and opted to give it a try, it will go slowly as I first have to understand all the things I see on my screen and also understand what happens when I click here or there. I belong, as I always say, to the handwritten letter generation so computers and fam. are " strange " to me.
