I'm an animal lover, teacher, freelance writer, and an aspiring blogger. i have been married for 21 years to my wonderful husband, and we live in the country with our many cats and dogs. I have been a teacher for 21 years, and with many foot problems after even after 3 foot surgeries, I would like to make enough money with affiliate marketing to retire early.
I started a website a couple of years ago, but I have not been successful with it, as it is too general. When I joined WA, I decided to make a fresh start and try to do it right this time. Soon I, I will have a brand new website in a niche I have chosen, and I believe I can be successful!

Good afternoon Linda,

Reading your profile I see we have a couple of things in common. I have 4 cats and 1 dog and all are the abandoned type of dear animals. I also live in the country in an 180-year-old farm house with 50 cm thick walls, no air condition needed here.
I always tell the new people I meet here in case you need a good source for writing have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, some amazing manuscripts there.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

Regards, Taetske

Thanks Linda for connecting. I just wonder where do you live? We are from Melbourne, Australia.
Sorry to hear about your foot problem. But why as much as three surgeries were required? It sounds very serious. I hope you don't mind me asking what really happened?
Kind regards
Tom
Reply
LindaKwas Premium
I'm in the U.S. The first surgery failed. Did no good. Went to another doctor. The surgery he did helped a little but caused another problem. He had to go back and correct that problem with a third surgery. Now my foot is only a little better and has more problems. I need surgery on the other foot, but I am apprehensive, as you can guess.
Reply
ttabor Premium
Sorry Linda, it doesn't sound good, and I totally understand why you are apprehensive. I would be too. But what is the underlying problem which leads doctors to make decision to operate?
Reply
LindaKwas Premium
Basically I have dropped metatarsal bones and bones that are crooked and off joint. I am in constant pain and have had little or no relief from anything that has been tried. I can wear basically only one brand/type of shoe. No others are comfortable at all.

Will be happy to help out with comments, social sites, etc. as soon as I can catch up with what I am doing. A little behind as I completely started over with a brand new site, and I plan to just try to link to the new site from the old site. Almost ready to start publishing my content and will be ready to post for feedback, comments, etc.
I will be glad to go to your site and leave some comments if you don't mind waiting a couple of days. I know that sounds a bit crazy, but I feel like I cannot focus well until I work out the quirks and issues I am having trying to get my new site up and running.
Does this make sense?? I hope so. I will be back in touch soon!
Wishing you the best!

Thank you! So sorry I am just now responding to this. I work full time (which I hope will change in the near future) and this has been a very busy week at work for me with a lot of extra things going on. Thanks for your follow and I will be more than happy to return the favor. I may have to get to it this weekend, so please don't think I am being rude. I am also i the process of rethinking my website, so that has slowed me down on WA. I will be glad to comment on your G+ posts, etc.

I am from South Carolina. I would be glad to give my opinion on your site, but I would need the URL I think. I am new at this, but I think there is a place on WA somewhere to post a request for others to look at your site and give their opinion on how it is coming along. So I could comment about it, and others could as well.

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! :)
Reply
LindaKwas Premium
Yes, I feel like I am being ridiculous trying to decide on a niche. I have always had trouble making decisions. I used to trade stocks a lot, and I could never decide what to buy. Always afraid of making the wrong decision!

I have been using the WA keyword tool after reading about how to use it. I am not sure if these keywords I have come up with are to be a niche or for writing blog posts in a niche. But here are a few ideas I came up with with info about each one:

Make Up Foundation for Women Over 50
Keywords: Best Makeup Foundation for women over 50
Searches 256
Traffic 44
Article Power 8.6
QSR: 12

Home Businesses for Women
Keywords: The Best Home Based Business for Women
Searches: 885
Traffic 151
Article Power 9.3
QSR:42

Keywords: The Best Home Business for Women
Searches 136
Traffic 24
QSR 14

Weight Loss Programs for Women Over 50
Keywords: Weight Loss Programs Women Over 50
Searches 948
Traffic 162
Article Power 9.3
QSR 8

I am a bit confused how to use keyword tools correctly but these are 3 ideas for niches. With Makeup foundation for women over 50, I am nearing 50 myself, have always worn makeup, and I have tried many foundations myself. But the commissions on makeup are rather low, ranging from 5 to 10 percent in most cases, but there are some expensive foundations out there which would of course result in more money for a sale. Lots of competition in makeup, but foundations for over 50 has low QSR.
With home businesses for women, I could promote Wealthy Affiliate! There are also a lot of digital products on Clickbank about starting home businesses or working from home on, and the commissions on Clickbank products are usually good.
On weight loss for women over 50, again, I am nearing 50, and would like to lose a few pounds myself. Weight Loss is a popular niche.

My greatest passion is animals, but here are two reasons I did not pick animals. I volunteer for a humane society and spend lots and lots of time doing animal rescues, feral cat programs, fostering, and feeding strays. I love them. However, it is almost becoming like a second job. I feel like I need a break from that sometimes, so writing content about something else may be more fun.
Also, I considered dog products or toys, but it looks like the competition with that is very fierce. Lots of searches, but I had trouble finding a QSR less than 200. Most keywords returned a QSR of over 300.

Other things I considered were: Children's Books, Hotel Packages, Dinner Cruises, American History, Camping Equipment, and Time Management/Procrastination.

Sorry this is so lengthy. I really value your ideas and opinions here. This is an important decision to me. I want the niche that will give me the best chance of gaining traffic and making sales.
If I just see traffic relatively soon after launching my site, it will be very encouraging for me.

Thanks a lot for your any insights here that you can give!
Reply
Kyle Premium
I want to give you a little perspective here: Have a read of that. You don't need to do keyword research when choosing a niche, you are simply choosing an audience and within that audience there are going to be 10,000's of keywords.
Reply
LindaKwas Premium
Ok. I will read this now. However, do you think if I go with makeup for women over 40 since I won't be 50 for 2 years would be better? I think so, and is makeup for those over 40 too broad? Narrow enough? Thanks.
Reply
LindaKwas Premium
I think I read this post already. I am sorry, Kyle, I really tend to overthink things!! Going with makeup for those over 40 if you think it's not too broad.

I'd say so. I have a blog that I have spent much time and effort on that has been a total waste of time. I need a real niche. I'm beginning to understand what that really is but I don't know yet what to choose! I take it you don't either?
Reply
KathleenMB Premium
As I just joined yesterday as an affiliate "basic member", I haven't even upgraded to premium because I want to see how long it takes to get thru the training process, I figure I have a week, I'm going to make the most of it by studying and learning. I believe I have a good niche and much experience in the beauty industry. It's still one of the largest industries in America making millions every year. I'm a licensed Aesthetian (in skin and skin care) that I feel with all the buzz going on in my head on how to put it into a website and create a following of interest, like I did for years with my customers. Except here, there is the internet and a much broader audience. Lets work together to be successful. Bounce ideas off each other and see what we can do to make money. That's the real goal isn't it.
Reply
LindaKwas Premium
Yes. We are all here with that goal in mind I think. The funny thing is that beauty is one I have considered but I was thinking makeup for women over 50 or makeup for beginners. Not sure I will do either one. I'm making a short list of ideas.
