About Lgyre
Joined February 2013
I'm a writer who mostly works for content mills, and I would love to start working for myself instead. I know that niche websites are the way to do that, but so far I haven't actually made the leap. The tools here have made it possible for me to give it a real try, so I have a new page up and am working through the certification courses. Now I'm just waiting to see whether the money starts trickling in :)

I'm also an aspiring illustrator, yogi, world traveller and unschooling mom of two.

i tried so many options to get my site to include a www.mydomainname.com but all effort proved abortive. i think it is an issue with the WA system.

Hi Igyre, you and I have alot of similar interests. I'm a writer, dabbling artist/photographer, world traveler at heart (waiting for the bank account to catch up! ;-), and started unschooling last year (always had the basic ideas and premise there for me, but took some situations in school/behaviors and life circumstances to change for me to decide it was best for my kids and our family.)

I've been at WA for a few years now, and always let life overrule doing anything with my membership. I recommitted this year and am really enjoying taking the baby steps every day and moving forward with it. ...I read your blogs, and wanted to say don't get discouraged by fluctuations in traffic or earnings. It takes time to get rolling, but just like baby steps, once it does get going it usually can't be stopped! ;-) In a few months you'll be looking at how you only made $100 this week, instead of the $200 from last week, then next week you'll have $300. It balances out, as long as you keep plugging along and tweaking as you go. Wishing you the best!

I do most of my writing at my websites rather than in article directories, but this is something you shouldn't stop. Not sure what you mean by "content mills" but I'm assuming you are referring to article directories. The right ones have the page ranking and excellent traffic. This is more than I can do with my website right now.

Anyway, I came by because I've acknowledged that you included me on your friend list and I am one to acknowledge this. I've done the same for you and anyone else who follows me. I am honored!

Daniel, by content mills I mean websites that buy lots of articles from writers at low prices. I do it because the money and work conditions are ok (and definitely way more than I'm making on my own at the moment) but I think I can do better eventually if I cut out the middleman and keep my own ad revenue.

Haha, no my user name is based on my real name, but that would be cool. I was thinking yesterday about how working on internet marketing would be great experience for young people - good luck to you both!

Thanks for the follow. That's one cool site you have there. I like the subtle way you have it monetized. Have you put it on Facebook, I see you have a like button. Are you on Pintrest? They are great for getting you more exposure!

Well good luck to you. I just recently re-joined, so am about to start training, unlike you, I know nothing, but you have to start somewhere, right? Thanks for the follow.

That's right. And actually, aside from just writing skills, most of what I already knew about SEO was also covered in the certification courses (and some of what I knew had become wrong since I learned it, apparently).

That's what I heard, that things are constantly evolving, so you are cotinually learning new things in order to keep up with it all. That's what scares me, that I'll finally learn it, and then it'll change. At least they keep you up to date with all this, so I'm sure it'll all be good. Anyway, I can't wait to get started, probably on Saturday. Good luck, and much success to us both.

Hello Igyre, and thanks for following me. I'm following you now.
I've read your first blog and boy do you work fast! I guess being a content writer has its advantages. I am curious to see how it goes on your second week. But, as you wrote, this is a long game so be constant and patient and surely you'll soon see the payoff start to roll in. I'll be on the lookout...
To your success.

Thanks, I'll also be curious to see the end of the second week. Good news so far is that I've earned my first revenue, bad news is that it's eight cents. :) But we'll see how things are looking after a few more days.

Hello, checked out your wed site, loved it now because I am new sorry if it is silly question but now will you get a commission on the sites you have along the left site if someone buys something from there????
Reply
lgyre Premium
This is best explained in the certification courses (just click the certification link on the left, here, and start working through them step by step) but basically you find retailers whose products you want to promote, sign up for an affiliate program on their website, then they give you special link code to put in your website, and if anything is bought through those links they pay you something..
