About MarieMancini
Joined December 2017
Hi, my name is Marie. I was born in Italy and my parents immigrated to Canada when I was a baby.

I’ve worked for over 30 years as an administrative assistant and decided a while back that I am at a certain point in my life where it is time that I started doing something for myself for a change. I always enjoyed art and so I began oil and acrylic painting a little over two years ago. I think I’m pretty good at it and apparently people are quite impressed with my work. Good or not, it is something I totally enjoy !

Anyway, beside painting, I now have a lot of time on my hands and decided to give working from home a try. Looking forward to this new adventure with WA and making new friends along the way.

Sorry to get back to you belatedly, but some computer issues cramped my style here for the last week. Thanks for the follow - I'm following you back now.

My wife has just returned to her painting, mostly with acrylics for now. If you post some of your work, i'm sure she would love to see it.

Make it a joy-filled weekend!

Hi Marie
We have painting in common. I took lessons in every aspect for over 20 years. Of course it was also a group therapy meeting. Lol. I met a lady that became my good friend.
Since my daughter's illness left her paralyzed and in constant pain in her hands she asked me to teach her to paint. I'm a loose landscape old barns and recently acquired still life painter. Debbie is a very structured painter. Ruller lines and solid. She recently drew and painted cartoons for her new twin grand babies. She can draw. I do not draw. I just jump in and "draw" with paint brush. I'm making my website about finding best of everything for the artist. Sorry to ramble on. So nice to meet another painter. I started in oils but like acrylic much better. I'm attaching Deb's first attempt at cartoons. She now is making the pictures a complete family. She finished Snow White and dwarfs
Thank you for following me. I also follow you
Best of everything

Hi Billie,
Your daughter is very talented !
Nice to meet a fellow painter.
I've never taken any art lessons except way back in high-school, but I consider myself quite creative and I decided to give painting a try a couple of years ago.
From what I hear, I'm apparently quite good at it (lol) !
I too, started out with oil, but much prefer acrylic.
My web niche isn't about art though (although it is a wonderful subject).
I haven't established my own 'style' as far as painting techniques go, but I enjoy painting just about anything, from landscapes to flowers to abstract. It's a wonderful pastime and helps me relax.
So when I start getting overwhelmed with my web...I mosey on down to my painting ! ! !
Wishing you well,
Kind Regards,
Marie

I'm not going to teach soto speak. One affiliate called Crafty has all kinds of teaching I just want to lead artist to the best they can find at fair price. I also want to invite all artist to put their art online and maybe be able to sell them. My best friend is an accomplished quilter. She has made and sold quilts for $1900.00. She is indeed can artist. She uses materials for her painting. I hope to help anyone do that

Hi Billie,

Your daughter is very talented.
I would like to sell my art online. The only thing is I don't know how to send great pictures like they have in FineArt Amercia for example.

Another thing I would like doing with my paintings is having greeting cards made out of them ... well I've got great ideas, just don't know how to go about them. For now, I'm concentrating on my website and learning from WA, maybe some day I'll invest more time on my art projects.

(I've attached a couple of my paintings ... let me know if you think they're good enough !)

Thanks,
Have a great weekend.
Marie

First. I really enjoyed your paintings. You, like Debbie are very structured. Me, I'm loose as a goose!!
My art teacher Pam had some of her water colors made into greeting cards. That's a very good idea for any art work. I'll research this and share my findings with you. I hope my new way of approaching this schooling works for me. I have lost a of my rentinson so one tablet isn't enough to keep checking on lesson I'm trying to implement ,so I'm taking notes of each lesson. I'm doing much better that way
I'll let you know what I found out. I'll send you a couple of my loosely goosey creations

Hi Marie:

Pleasure to meet you. I am glad you have discovered your true passion - art and acrylic and oil painting. That is awesome. You can definitely build a website for yourself and use it to sell your work and market yourself as a true painter.

Thank you so kindly for following me. I am now following you. So I now you and your family migrated to Canada when you were a baby, but did you ever learn to speak Italian since you are Italian? Just curious. :)

Steph

Hi Steph,
Funny you should ask about my speaking Italian.

I am fluent in English, and being raised in Quebec, very fluent in French as well.

However, depending on which part of Italy you come from, Italians have different dialects, so although I can understand the ''proper'' Italian, I don't speak it very well. So if I talk to someone in my dialect, I may just come out sounding like a ''Hillbilly'' lol !!!

So since I'm far from being a Hillbilly, I try to avoid speaking Italian other than with my family !

Nice meeting you Steph !

What a great niche! Your only problem will be narrowing it to a promotable focus and then building out from there. WA is the right place to learn and selling your own stuff is a lot more fun and profitable than selling others stuff. Neighter to be ignored. Love to see your stuff on what to do, how to do it and where to get supplies.

Although art may be a great niche, I just paint for the pleasure...helps me relax. But I might eventually look into it for another web project.

Hi Bill,

I'm having a bit of trouble myself finding a niche that I'm totally passionate about.

I've started out with a website on parenting (products, services, advice ...) and I have another one in which I plan on promoting just about anything (not niche specific). I don't know how well it will do, but I've been reading about niches and although there are many pros, there are cons as well, in the sense that when you have a specific niche, it becomes difficult to find content in the long run.

Who knows ? Trial and error I guess !

Good evening to you Marie, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back.
The key to a long healthy life is to enjoy what you do, then it isn't a job. If painting, marketing online and building relationships are a passion, then it can be a great career for you. Learning how to market online from WA can be very rewarding for you.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much enjoyment and success as you travel this online journey.

Thanks, for the follow Marie.

Best of luck pursuing your online goals. Are you thinking of using your website to be able to sell your paintings? I think that would be phenomenal!

With each painting you introduce, you can write an article describing the painting and tell the "inside story" on how the painting was born...including your thoughts as you painted it.

Could be interesting...

Bonsoir Marie,
Je me permets de venir vous visiter sur votre profil après vous avoir découverte dans un commentaire chez John. Évidemment il est rare de lire quelques lignes en français, donc cela saute aux yeux.
J'adore la peinture, j'ai fait de l'aquarelle et de la gouache avec passion.
Je vous souhaite autant de bonheur dans cette nouvelle aventure.
À bientôt j'espère,
Anne

Bonjour Anne,
Enchantée !
C'est très gentil. Effectivement, il n'y a pas beaucoup de francophones à WA. Il me fera plaisir de vous ''suivre''.
La peinture, ça, c'est pour le plaisir...pour le reste, beaucoup de boulot lol !

Your name just rolls off the tongue, love it
I also love art but as hobby, it seems it is not a great money making source.
WA seems to be the way to make money in a different way. Maybe your art will be able to incorporate your site.
I have followed you.

Hello Marie and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Now you must get stuck into the training and if you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 390+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Thanks for the warm welcome and the follow back Robert. I have a LOT to learn before being able to achieve 390 blogs (lol). As an ambassador, I am sure you will be indeed a great friend in giving me the help (I am sure) I will need :)
Have a great day !

Don't pay too much attention to the rank of ambassador Marie.
Being an ambassador does not mean they are experienced and they know what they are talking about.

A lot of them have attained that status because they believe it will help them make money and they want the title. They are sadly mistaken.

I know people who have become ambassadors after a few months. Then they realize they should have been concentrating on their training and website. They soon disappear without trace.

You stick to people like myself who have been here a few years and the majority of them are not interested in being an ambassador.

I do help a lot and the WA system recognizes this through its algorithm but in reality I couldn't care less if I'm an ambassador or not.

Enjoy your day and the week ahead.
Robert

In some cases, you're right ... some people let titles get to their head (lol). Glad you're not one of them. Appreciate your kind words of wisdom !

No probs and its common sense to concentrate on why you are here and that is to learn how to earn an income from the internet.
I personally made my money long before I joined WA.
The two sites I have here with WA are for informational purposes to help the membership and the general public.

I also publish a bog 2 or 3 times a week.
This I do to help as well because I love to write so why not pass on my experience and knowledge to help others achieve the same success as I have.
I'm off for the night now as its getting late here and I have a busy day tomorrow.
Bye for now and keep in touch.
Robert

It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance Marie! I am an artist at heart. Before becoming a physical therapist I worked as a graphic artist, but life happened . . . Anyway, I still play with it, and love to do pen & ink drawings.

Thanks for including me in your network and I look forward to our online successes this year with WA!

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! :)

Hi Mike,

OMG, it's like you were reading my mind this very second !!!!

My thoughts are all over the place. I can think of a bzillion things but I can't put my finger on any of them. The problem is that I love so many things but am not an expert at any of them.

I love painting (art). DIY projects. Flower arrangements. Plants. Food. Health problems. Skin care. Children. Shoes. Travel. Home decor. Fashion does and don'ts. Diet. ... well, you get the picture !

And, if that's not enough, I've never blogged or posted ANYTHING in my life except little things on Facebook with friends. Anyway, I'm just at the very beginning of my training and I'm sure I'll find answers along the way.

Thanks for reaching out !

Hi Marie, lol, you are like so many and even myself when I started out. One word of advice, don't over think it, and don't think you need to be an expert on a niche, no one starts out as an expert.
When you put it into perspective people go to university to be experts in a certain field and as time goes on they become experts but they grow with their training.
A good example would be me when I started in the weight loss niche, I was interested in weight loss but really had no clue on writing about it so I subscribed to medical journals and university journals.
When I created articles I just looked at studies on certain weight loss techniques such as studies on the Mediterranean diet for example and put some of that info into my own words and the next thing I knew I had some pretty good knowledge on what the Mediterranean diet was all about. Next I read a study on losing weight by drinking water. Before I knew it people were asking me about certain weight loss techniques which I would research and then write a post on.
Your knowledge will grow as your blog grows. No one has all the answers when it comes to skin care but as you research you will gain more and more knowledge and everything you learn becomes a new topic for your website so don't let the fact that your not an expert on a certain topic hold you back.
Start digging into a topic and see if there are areas that you can pick out content for a post.
I always set up my headers for my post in advance and then I fill them in with info that way you will always have a post that makes sense and has a nice flow, for example...

Title- The effects of sun on your skin

intro

what happens to cells in your skin when exposed to the sun

How long can skin be exposed before damage occurs

how the sun ages your skin

Can sun damage be reversed or is there long term consequences.

How to protect your skin from sun damage

Recommended products

This is a simple process that you can do every time you create a post and whats cool about this technique for writing a post is you never get stuck look for info, it actually helps you find info for your post. Just think of things you would want to know and that's your content.
Hope that helps Marie, just pick one of your ideas and we will look at the opportunities, talk soon Mike.
