About Magieken
Joined April 2015
My Name Is Margaret

I grew up in a generation who believed talking about yourself was vain and very self-centered but, with the bit firmly between my teeth, here I go talking about myself.

I love books. I read everything I can get my hands on but mostly I read thrillers.
Like most avid readers I guess I seem a little antisocial but I'm not really. My love of books started when I was a young child living on a dairy farm with our nearest neighbors miles away. Loneliness was never a problem for me as I had all those characters in my books to keep me company and of course the farm animals I adored.

My second love in life is Lawn Bowls. I am so glad young people are now finding this game and joining in what was always played exclusively older people in the past.

I've been a keen blogger for several years and have dabbled a little in Affiliate Marketing but with only mediocre success. When I was forced to retire due to a back injury I was able to focus on building an online business. With this in mind, I took advantage of the free Wealthy Affiliate sign up offer.

It didn't take me long to see the benefits of upgrading my free membership to Premium. I also learned quickly why I had only had mediocre success in the past. The Wealthy Affiliate training is awesome and I am grateful for all the help and support I have had from everyone here.

As many of you will realize this is an update of my profile. I have been with Wealthy Affiliate since April 2015 and I have attributed the success I have had with the training and support that I have received as a Premium member.

If you are considering upgrading to Premium I strongly recommend you do. The owners and members of Wealthy Affiliate have helped and supported me at every turn and have celebrated my success with me and I am. and will always be. eternally grateful to them.

Hi Margaret, thank you for the follow back! It's great to meet you and be a part of your network here.

Reading your profile here reminds me of myself so much...I also grew up on a farm and love to read books, mainly thrillers and the like.

Although I don't have as much time to read as I used to, I still prefer a good book over TV, which is why I wait to read my book til the end of the day. Otherwise, I'd end up reading for hours and not get anything else done, lol.

Anyways, I look forward to reading more from you and hope things are going well for you on your journey here.
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Yes, we are alike. A good book takes precedence over everything so I read at night too.
I read a lot less now because of all the other commitments I have. Sometimes I think I should have been a juggler.
All the best to you too

Margaret, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I just popped over and took a peak at your WA website (I couldn't open the other one). Now from the photo you have either visited Australia or live here. We have lots of those critters around. I left two comments; one on one of your other commenters and another for you.

I love Sci Fi and Fantasy so my website is about these. Feel welcome to visit it via my profile page.

I also like thrillers as you do. After all even I need a break from my favourites! As both my partner and I love reading I trawl Kobo eBooks for potentially interesting books at a good (low) price. Recently I found an author that I had never heard of before but we both are on book 5 of her detective Kim Stone books. Her name is Angela Marsons. The first book is 'Silent Scream'. You might like her too.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions, although you might not need to!

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Hi Helen, Thanks for making contact and it is lovely to get to know you.

I will definitely check out Angela Marsons books. I have never heard of her before either. If isn't ofen you find a book that can grab you on page one and hold you to the end. I am hoping she is one of those authors.

I know what you mean about having too much to do. Sometimes I feel I have taken on much more than I should have. It is often a struggle to find the time I need to get everything done and have been considering downsizing a bit.

If I have any questions I will definitely call on your expertise. I loved what your boss told you. I was probably one of the ones heaving a sigh of relief. Why do we always think our question is stupid?

Can you let me know whic hsite you couldn't open as I will need to take a look at it.

All the best to you.
Margaret

Check you put this link correctly. Then explore any dns info. I did ask about this before but can't remember where.

I have attached a screen print of the message.

Thanks, Helen it was an S.O.E (silly operator error) I left a letter out of the title. It is working now.

I often have dyslexia of the keyboard! Actually I thought you might have too one too many 'n's. Right place wrong error!

I left a comment on one of your received comments on drinking enough water.

Also I think your font might be a bit small.

And you no longer need the Captcha Code. WA's adopted plug i WPSpamshield negates the necessity for this.

I assume you got all the info on this from Kyle's post .

It doesn't mention the redundancy of the Captcha but that is a side benefit.

Thanks. I did find the comments you left and thanks for that. I was trying to update that plugin yesterday but it kept coming up as an error. I have not read Kyles post yet but will do it now. Have a great day.

Evening, Margaret, Very nice to read your bio. I share your love of books and consider our library here in Florence, AL to be the best investment my town has ever made. I estimate I read about $5,000 worth of books every year. I look forward to following your progress through this neat business we are in. Best regards, David

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes
