Celebrating My First Comment From Outside WA

Last Update: December 28, 2020

Hello Wonderful WA family, I hope this finds you well?

I logged into my new website to share some posts on Facebook and saw a comment waiting to be accepted. It was not like the others because it was sat in WordPress all on its own, it was directly on my website. After some thorough investigation, I discovered it has come from a person on Pinterest in one of the communities I am a part of.

I wasn't following this person and I had never communicated with her either. So it came as a complete and wonderful Surprise!! This has spurred me on, even more, to keep creating quality content.

Sharing on social media works!!

Going to leave you with this quote:

“ You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something–your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life .” —Steve Jobs

Have a very productive week.

Stay safe.

Lisa :-)

Hi Lisa
It's a great feeling, isn't it? I had one of those a short while ago. At first, I thought it was a joke, but clearly, it was genuine. People outside WA, I suppose one could cynically say "real people" leave much simpler and more direct
Best regards

So fun, isn't it!
I too found myself with a non WA comment on my admin, waiting for approval.

Come to find out, after clicking on the person's name, they are a WA premium member who clicked on one of my websites and made a comment!

That was very cool!

Well done Lisa, it's a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

You feel like you're moving in the right direction.

It also feels brilliant when you appear to have "fans" of your work, i.e. those who comment or share every single one of your articles.

It's great, although it does create more "work", but in a really nice way.

Funnily enough, my first ever non -WA on one of my current websites was a bitter-sweet moment.

It filled me with joy and dread at the same time:

"I have purchased the program, but I didn't recieve anything. Is this a scam?"


I managed to get him sorted in the end, Haha.

Well done again Lisa, it's wonderful to see you hitting each "landmark" along your journey.
