About Laurie-ann
Joined May 2017
I'm back everyone! I had to lose my WA for a bit, I just couldn't afford it. But I missed you all like crazy and found a way to find some money to get back here. So just to update; I decided to lose the Health wealth and romance site and the eezycakes site as well ( i lost them anyways when I cancelled my membership ) I decided to put my time into my www.cupcakesandcaviar.org site.

I'm still not making any money yet :( but I am up to 800 - 1000 visitors per day, some days over 1000. I have revamped my whole site. I have taken most of my affiliate sites off and am only focusing on about half dozen of them now.

I have started to create a recipe book as well. Just an eBook nothing fancy.

Hi Laurie-ann
As a vegetarian I would think that cup cakes are enough on their own - and a recipe book on just cup cakes - not seen one of those yet - reckon the photos would be important! I like the idea of taking them from different angles and heights to different feel for each one! All the Very Best John

Good day to you Laurie, my name is Ken and I welcome you back to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back.
First of all, for the best deal you can get, is to pay the yearly subscription when Black Friday (November 29) weekend is here. It is only 299. You won't be sorry!
Another thing I learned before coming to WA, don't try to monetize a site until you have at least 200 unique visitors per month. From the sound of your profile, you have that number already. It shouldn't be long at all before you will be earning a steady income.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success in the coming year.
Ken

Hi Laurie-Ann,
Cupcakes and caviar. Can't say I like the second but I LOVE the first. My blog is https://icanlivewithoutsugar.com and I plan to add sugar free cupcake recipes at some point. So glad you are able to return. I'm looking forward to checking your blog and am now also following you. Thanks for following me as well.
Good luck with the recipe book. Sounds like you have reworked everything brilliantly! All the best. :)

Hi, Laurie-ann.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate University (This is what I call it).

I have been here since May, 2016. I will never leave because of what is given.

Laurie,
I am a retired 'Executive Chef.' Almost 40 years.
Classical French training is my 'backbone.'
Once that has been 'achieved' the rest is 'History.'

My 'Niche' online is not based on 40 years of my background...."Cooking."
My focus is Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technology.

You and your 'hubby' look and appear to be genuine and awesome people.

How can I help?

Please feel free to private message me through this platform or contact me direct through email: paulmindra@gmail.com.

Kindest regards.

Paul.

Hey Laurie-Ann

Thanks for the follow, I have followed you back, your websites sound awesome you obviously enjoy baking. I am a bit of a foodie myself I love cooking, the health and wealth niche has so much potential, especially since those things are so closely related, I believe that most cases off success can. E judged by how they treat their body, if you are too lazy to look after your body, most likely you are too lazy to look after your finances, I wish you all the best and if you take as much knowledge from this site as possible I am sure you will be a great success.

Your friend

Hello Laurie and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and had a look round you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your Monday.
Robert

Hello Laurie-Ann and welcome to WA. I am impressed that you already have two websites when you only began in February! I
joined in March and am still going back and forth on the right theme for my niche. I am making progress, but it has been slow for me. Thanks for the follow. I will also follow you.
Best wishes!

Hi Laurie-ann,
You have some good combos there. Cupcakes and caviar and yes a good imaginative title health and romance. My mind is drifting now.
A few years ago I couldn't resist buying my daughter a t-shirt that had a picture of a balloon looking at a cactus, and the cactus was looking back at the balloon sadly. The caption on the t-shirt read "Impossible Love". A great combo and I actually felt sorry for the both of them especially the balloon.LOL
Nice to meet you and thank you for the follow.
I wish you all the best
Cheers
Brad

Hi Laurie-ann. Thanks for connecting with me. I checked out your websites since I love to cook and am always interested in learning about health, wealth and romance. Cool way you incorporated ways to make money with the sites.

I am not a huge movie fan of any kind (too inpatient to sit still that long!)..but I liked your top rated romantic movie list.

I would like to add "The Notebook" on my list!

Good work!

Good evening Laurie,

That sounds nice, wealthhealthand romance I hope you are successful with this. Something strange happened, I was kicked out of this page and when I came back the message I was writing had disappeared of course, sometimes computers drive me up the wall.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Hi Laurie-ann, Thank you so much for the follow, much appreciated. 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]

Hello Laurie,♫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.

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

Laurie, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Laurie.

Thanks Kyle. You have been helping me more than you probably even know lol. After your suggestion about the quotes on my title page www.cupcakesandcaviar.org within an hour I went from 8 views to 30. I had no idea something so small to me was so big to the internet world. I want to succeed and I plan on working as hard as I have to - to get there :)

Great to meet you. Heard your ideas about a healthy food website. That is an awesome idea. Set yourself apart from all the rest of the websites with some healthy and sinfully delicious recipes.
The one major piece of advice I can offer you is to set up a Google plus account. post all of your blogs related to your website to your G+ account.

Then go here: This will build up your network, This will help you get 1's (Likes) from people in your network.

The more 1's on your blogs the higher the rank on your website. Keep a continual check on this page here at WA. Keep up with adding people to your G+ and WA accounts. This will build up Your network.

Anyway best of luck here at WA. May all of your dreams become reality here at WA.

Cheers,

Paul

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! :)

Hi Kyle, Yes it would be great if you could help me figure it out. Here is the rundown of my chart I did for myself.

HOMEMAKER BUSINESS OWNER
Baker /Cook Manager
Caregiver Cook
Take care of pets Waitress
Taxi Driver Bartender
Cleaning lady Bookkeeper
Personal Shopper
Financial Advisor
Landscaper

EMPLOYMENT INTERESTS/HOBBIES
Office Manager My pets (dogs,cats,fish)
Bookkeeper Being a mom
Office Assistant Cooking / Baking
Circuit Coach (gym) Helping others
Health & Wellness Coach Camping
Health & Safety Manager Making crafts
Customer Service Rep Learning new recipes
Industrial Sewing Exercise
Wicca
I love to learn new ways of
living healthy,cooking
healthy
Blogging

See my dilema? I thought when I started my site that just recipes would be the Niche I was looking for, but now after months of research and reading other blogs and now your site, is showing me that maybe I was thinking too small. I love my site cupcakesandcaviar .ca but creating another one and hoping that the 2 sites can compliment each other? I'm willing to put in as much times as it takes to be successful at this.

Well you could choose any one of these directions, perhaps choose the one that you are most interested in and then you can use that as your starting point here. Let me know and I will be more than happy to help you out. :)
