Ready to make some money!

Last Update: April 22, 2017

Incredibly, I've actually made it through two course certifications, and now I'm ready to make some money. I'm amazed that I've actually got a website built, there are real posts on it -- with pictures, no less -- and I've figured out (with LOADS of help from the community here) some technical stuff to boot. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks! Honestly, there's nothing I'd rather be doing, and I feel it's very unfortunate that I have to work even part time just to pay the bills. I want THIS to pay the bills and then some.

My website is, and it's about what to get, what to keep and what to get rid of in your kitchen. I thought the writing would be the easy part, but I'm picky and the research has to be accurate and verified, so my first few articles took more time than I thought they would. Now I feel like I got some of the heavy lifting out of the way, and I can start to have a little more fun. I was thinking about making this sort of a test site, but it's going pretty well so I'll probably just keep going. I have a couple more ideas for niches down the line, but I can hold off. I also have a blog I started a few years ago, before I knew anything about SEO or keywords or affiliate marketing. One of my goals is to move it to WA and perk it up. It's called, Tales from the Top of the Hill. Can't think how I'd monitize it just yet, but we'll see.

In the next three months, I'd like to see a number with a dollar sign in front of it coming into my bank account. I want to write at least a post a week -- and I know a lot of people will say I need more, but that's about all I can safely commit to right now.

In six months, I'll know if I'm just having fun here, or whether there's a real potential to make enough money so I can exhale. I'm really, truly devoting as much time as I can, following the training, and hopefully managing a quality website.

Best thing? I'm truly enjoying this journey.

Wishing everyone much success!

Laura, aka Lazy Suzi

Hey Laura - we seem to have a lot in common with regards to our goals here at WA. Of course, I am sure most of us are looking to be able to make a living off of this thing. I'm still working full-time and there's just not enough time in the day to do everything I want to do. I'm still not sure that I'm going to make any money from my site, but I'm hoping. I signed up as a yearly member, so I made that commitment. I'm here for the long haul. One thing that makes me feel good about making that commitment is that I do really enjoy writing and blogging. And I have enjoyed everything that I've learned about websites and blogging, etc. Lots of fun. I do hope that I can turn it into a living though! Best of luck to you!
