WA Anniversary and a meetup with Taetske
Hello WA friends,
we returned from our holiday yesterday and when I signed in to WA to see what's new, a one year dedication badge popped out. So I thought it was time to write a summary of my first WA year journey.
Learning with WA
When I joined WA, I already had a website, being a freelancer. But I had not a big knowledge of SEO and zero knowledge of affiliate marketing.
After becoming a premium member I created a MMO website and beginning of this year also a site about health and beauty. Actually, I've always been interested in nutrition but writing about things related to health is extremely hard to rank in google and hugely competitive. That's why I focus more on skin-related topics; I focus on keywords with low traffic and I can see some slow progress on the traffic.
I learned a lot about SEO and keywords (and there is still a ton to learn), found out how easy it was to start another website (it gets easier with every other one) and I started learning more about writing engaging content. Still hard for me as I tend to write more like writing a thesis than talking to a friend :) But I believe we can improve in everything, it just takes time and dedication.
I also have been learning about YouTube a lot and plan to continue with my channel more regularly.
Websites & Earnings
At the moment, I have an MMO website, a beauty website and a new site with my paintings that is still in the beginning stage. The beauty site is my main focus.
There are 16 articles on my MMO site and 47 on my beauty site.
My MMO website brought 3 referrals, none of them premium yet. With just 16 posts on that site I consider it not a bad result.
My beauty website that's slowly getting to 50 articles has earned $11 in amazon commissions. It is not much but I'm happy about it because it shows the process works. It just needs more time, more content and bigger activity on social media.
What I value most is the community here. I've been a member to other online programs and some of them provide great information but none of them has such a supporting community with so many positive and cheerful people. I'd say in general that WAers are dreamers and have a good heart. The pay it forward mentality is just incredible.
I've met some people in WA who I consider my close friends even though I've never seen them in person. However, I managed to meet up with Taetske, our dear member, just a few days ago!
Knowing she's been living in the south of Spain, my favourite part of the world where we go on holiday every year, I wrote Taetske the exact time and she invited me and my boyfriend to spend some time with her and Michael. We spent a beautiful evening together, had perfect steaks with a delicious salad and it was truly the best part of our holiday.
The picture above is where we were sitting in her garden with beautiful flowers around.
I'm not good at taking pictures so there are not many I can proudly show off. But I like the one I used as cover picture on this post and as it gets cropped there I am inserting it in the full size here again.
Meeting up with people who have similar view of life and interests is so refreshing and nice. I hope we will have an opportunity to see each other again next year.
I would also love to meet other WA friends but travelling is not as easy as it used to be with all the covid craze. Well, we have to hope it will get better.
Looking forward to what 2021 will bring! More friends, more meetups, more traffic? It's been an exciting journey for sure.
Have you met any WA friend in real or would you like to?
