About Louisaparson
Joined April 2018
I am a Veteran Certified Peer Specialist in Tye, TX. I'm a Persian Gulf War veteran who served from Apr 89 - Apr 95.

I started O.N.E. FAVOR (Outreach Network Enrichment Faces and Voices of Recovery) because I experienced military sexual trauma in the Navy and have been receiving treatment since 2008. I have been sober since March 12, 2006.

My network includes underemployed women who have experienced sexual trauma. Most of us are housewives that spend time alone making crafts as a secondary income and as part of our treatment plan.

I have started blogging on my website about trauma-informed care, telling some of my experiences with women on the website I'm learning to build at WA, and doing recovery audio recordings on O.N.E. FAVOR Facebook group.

Update May 23, 2018

When I checked my profile this morning my WA ranking drastically dropped.
I have been tracking my ranking since May 17, 2018 to see if my participation in the WA community would make an impact.

On May 17 my ranking was 6240 with 174 in my network
On May 23 my ranking was 561 with 204 in my network

I spend an average of 3 hours a day responding to emails for trainings and blogs and replying back to those who followed me. Even with 3 hours in my day dedicated to the WA community, I'm way behind.

I do my best every day in addition to spending 15 hours a week working on my lessons.

I originally planned on 25 hours a week on WA. This number has increased to about 35 hours a week since May 4 when I became Premium. The hard work is definitely worth it since I have learned so much.

Update June 25, 2018

I went yearly June 1, 2018.

I'm excited about the commitment that I have made for a year.

My WA ranking is 239 and I have 352 in my network.

Since I have been helping my fiance with his handyman business, my routine has changed. I have been concentrating on building a website for his audience and it has limited me to post and respond to my emails. Now I try to catch up on the weekends or find time before I go to bed at night.

It has put a damper in my routine, because I love interacting in the WA community.

However, duty calls and my fiance wants to know how I can build his online presence so I spend a lot of time thinking about his campaign on Facebook and trying to stay active on his website that I built.

I'm spending more time applying my Affiliate Bootcamp training and trying to stay up-to-date on my own website as well.

I have learned a lot about choosing low hanging fruit keywords and getting more comfortable with WordPress.

Mainly I'm writing and doing keyword searches on Jaxxy to find interesting blog topics.

As Woody Allen says: 90% of success is showing up, 10% is what you are showing up for.

All the best,

Hey there Louisa

These are great goals and they are more than achievable! The more time you can spend on learning here within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate the better, but we've built WA so that you can work at your own pace!

I know that you are going to do great!

Thank you Jason. I'm trying to absorb as much as I can.

I wrote my first content article in 90 minutes after reading Kyle's blog on "organic milk". It was easy to follow his suggestion and now I have a formula to follow for more content.

I always wanted to write but I wanted to have impact. Now I know what niche to tackle.for future articles.

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! :)

Yes since I wrote the article I thought it would be nice to build what I wrote about as an example of being a member here.

My ultimate goal is to use WA to its fullest way before I market it.

That's why I chose a niche about the conversation I had with my friend. She wanted a solution and I'm building it for her.

I completed Lesson 5. I have a clean slate on my website. The best place to start.

I completed Lesson 6. I enjoyed this lesson because I love the SEO plugin since I don't have it on my current site that hosts my domain. If it does I didn't have instruction on how to use it.

Though I paid a year's membership to have my domain on SiteBuilder, I do have questions on how to bring it in WA.

I want to get further down in the lessons before I do so.

It is quite a manual process to move a website to WA, but it can be done if it is a Wordpress based site.

You would have to follow these steps:

(1) Download your content locally
(2) Update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

(3) Build a website here at WA using the website builder.
(4) Transfer your content over to WA

This is a very manual process and it can be done, but I don't recommend doing it if you have an established high ranking website, I don't usually recommend moving it.

If you need any further help, let me know.

I'm now a Premium member and looking forward to the benefits of this site.

I already tried your "organic milk" exercise and wrote my first content article for my website in 90 minutes.

I was a shock to me that I did it, but I followed your instructions.

Thanks for the suggestion.
