About Maddy55
Joined January 2017
I am a Canadian living in Manitoba (central Canada). I have owned and operated a Dog and Cat boarding kennel for over 23 years (now 'retired'), and was also a Dog Groomer for over 12 years. I love and 'own' 2 horses, 2 dogs, 5 cats and 20 chickens. I would have more if we had the room. Married for 37 years with two grown sons (one married with a son and the other not yet married) and 2 grandchildren. I am not new to the world of website building. With my first website, I started with a very clumsy platform called Homestead. Then I moved onto a user friendly Weebly platform. I am presently the owner of 3 websites, one was simply an informational website (with Weebly) for my physical business, the Dog and Cat boarding kennel. The last two I have built here in WA. I don't think I would have built these WordPress websites without WA, I am thankful I found you all. The help here is priceless!

Hello Marilyn,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

I have another website for my present physical type of business (a Dog boarding business) and I was thrilled recently to realize that my website is ranked on the first page of a Google search. I did not realize the significance of this until I went through some of the training here. It doesn't give me more business though as due to physical injuries to my knees, I am not open during the winter months... shucks!

Have you entertained the idea of offering advice, & tips via a blog when you are physically unable to perform for your business ?

Yup, that is exactly what I am focusing my new website on... all about dogs, my experience and research with dogs etc. I hope my new website will do as well as my other one for my Dog Boarding business.

Hi, Maddy
Nice to meet you and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. Thanks for following me.

Are you still having trouble getting to the next lessons? Make sure you check all the check boxes on the tasks at the end of the lessons? That might be your problem.

Have you seen this Live Video Class on finding a niche. It might give you some ideas. I wish you success,
Pat

Hi Pat, the Next Lesson buttons came back... thankfully but the course does not keep track for me. I have to memorize which lesson I was on or just leave it open. I am almost finished those lessons anyway and will move onto the Bootcamp lessons. My Google has been acting up today, couldn't even get on at all until I did an update and rebooted a few times. My Facebook is not loading today at all... strange. Oh well. Here I am again, ready to continue with the lessons. P.S. I didn't check all the boxes because I wasn't doing them all (starting the website etc.). I wanted to go through all the lessons first and then go back and do them again more thoroughly. I have finally picked my Niche, it was staring me in the face the entire time but I guess I was resisting. It will have to be along the lines of raising dogs. I have had a lifetime of experience there, with many many dogs over the years. I have also created and run a Pet Hotel for over 22 years, handling other people's dogs. I was hoping something more exotic was going to hit me in the face LOL! However, if I am going to write content, that is one area I excel.

Glad to hear you are still hanging in there. I know what you mean, I found myself doing the tasks because I didn't want to click the boxes, if I hadn't done the tasks.

I know you are in a hurry to get going and probably know a lot of the stuff already, but there is a method to their madness. and reasons for doing things in the order they do. Now that you have your niche you can really get going

PS My sister and I have Silken Windhounds and she has started a website. https://JoyRunSilkens.com, if you would like to see them.

Best Wishes,
Pat

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! :)

Thanks Mike, I am going through the course (not the Bootcamp one yet). It's a bit confusing with the lessons sometimes because after a lesson is over, there is no button (next lesson) to progress to the next lesson many times. I have to go back to the very beginning and try to find where I left off. My Progress on the green button shows that I am only on lesson 2 but that is not correct. I am much farther along than that. Is there a procedure that I am not doing after a lesson? Maybe its just a cookie or plug that is interfering at my end... sometimes I have to clear my cache when things act funny at my end. yeah, I haven't picked a Niche yet. I want it to be the right one for me. I have so many interests and smaller developed talents that it's really hard to pick one. I am planning on finishing the original course first, then reading through most of the Bootcamp lessons before working on the website. Of course having a Niche that I have decided on has to come first or setting up the Website Blog is kind of a moot point? I went through a course on Niches yesterday.

Hi Marilyn, yes that does seem odd that you are experiencing that issue with the training. Once we get you through the choosing a niche I think we should look at moving over to the bootcamp training they offer training that I feel offers instruction on setting up a very good website structure.
Let me know if you need my input on your niche at all, making sure there isn't too much competition and your niche isn't too broad is very important. Talk soon Mike.

Oh what the heck, I am just going to upgrade to Premium for now. That clock on the upper right hand corner is giving me an ulcer...4 days 2 hrs 38 mins and 50 seconds....LOL! I am assuming that if my life changes drastically here and I choose to opt out, I can cancel the membership at some point?
