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 69, as I have time on my hands, I thought it a good thing to start something new in my life. I now have 2 websites where I write about the things which interest me.
I will do my best and anticipate being successful in Wealthy Affiliate.

I chose the name La Parra for a reason. In 1981 I bought a, at that time 150-year-old ruin, like a farmhouse. In front of it was growing a very old Parra=grapevine, I guess it was at least some 100 years old.
15 Years ago, seeing the old Parra was getting weaker, I planted many new ones. To get grapes is nice, normally the birds are there before me, but it gives shade on the south side. Now the old Parra has died but the new ones are doing well so having shade in the hot summer is now guaranteed.
I have also named my house La Parra.

In April 2018 I made a lovely 2 week trip to Holland. I met 2 ladies of Wealthy Affiliate during these days. Michelle in Antwerpen in Belgium and Loes in Friesland, in the North of Holland. It was so nice to meet them as I had been in contact with them for a long time on Wealthy Affiliate.
You might like to read my WA post on my holiday.


In 2019 we plan to visit the U.S and hope to meet some more friends from Wealthy Affiliate.

With best wishes for all of you. Regards Taetske

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.

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Taetske? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Thank you Kyle for your message. Will complete rest of lesson 8 and hope to also do number 9 today. Just want to get the lessons done, then will do some extra things I received and see how the situation is by then.

Excellent to hear Taetske, sounds like you are making some good progress. As you continue to move forward within the training you are going to truly see your business take shape.

If you do need anything going forward, just let me know. ;)

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.
Regards, Taetske

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 ?

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.
Greetings from sunny but , for us , cold south of Spain, have you ever been here ?

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’ve managed to build a successful business and create a solid stream of income of about $1,600 per week so far. WA has played a huge role in helping me achieve this. I am committed to helping you succeed as well. Feel free to private message me and I will help you with whatever I can. I can also show you exactly what I did step by step to achieve success and you can make the choice to apply whatever you want. That’s the great thing about 3.5 billion people on the internet! There is room enough for both of us to have enormous success in whatever you choose to do! I hope I can be a part of your journey.

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.
